My Eldest Daughter’s Adventures In School

Yesterday when Mj arrived home from school, she told me that she will have to wake up so early today because their fun run will start at 4:00 in the morning. The meet up will start at 3 in the morning so she has to wake up at 2 in the morning. She has been telling me about this a week ago and I didn’t realize it until yesterday. I didn’t even know that I already paid for it. She was complaining though last night because she found out that they have class afterwards and she can’t absent because it’s their laboratory schedule.

I am so happy of how Mj being so serious about her study. She liked her new school a lot; she can cope up with her studies especially with her Math and Science. You see she was given a probationary status because her final grade when she was in 4th year did not reach 85 so she have to strive hard and I am glad she was able to do it, in fact more than of what we expected.

When I found out that Mj did a good job of her grades to her new school, I slowly love it too. But as what they said you can’t have everything because I still haveĀ  something to say about this school and that is it has a lot of projects and contributions that sometimes Mj needs to go out on Sundays to meet with her classmates because they have dance practice or projects they need to attend to. I am still monitoring her though, I don’t want to be complacent, it’s not that I don’t trust her but teenagers these days are very adventurous and sometimes they tend to lie to just do whatever they want. We will just have to be cautious though and she knows how I am when I am betrayed so I have high hopes that she won’t lie at all.

Rest For A Week

Thank GOD that I will be resting for one week meaning I don’t have to drive till night because it is Mj’s periodical exam and she needs to study for the week to prepare for the next week’s periodical exam. In times like this, I would like to spend my time at night to rest but I just can’t rest because Faith and I also needs to study and I also need to prepare dinner for the whole family plus my blog is waiting enthusiastically.

I am still assisting Mj when she studies, but not much anymore. It is just like I am asking her question and she would answer. In math, she will do it on her own, their topic is already so complicated and since she is the expert I just leave it to her. I always told her though that she needs to pass all the test so she can join the competition otherwise both will suffer.

She is already in Grade 8, meaning she’s in 2nd year high school, she plan to use the swimming to get a scholarship in college, I hope she can. Two years from now she will attend junior high and that means she will not attend in the same venue of campus much bigger this time. Geez I can’t wait!

Friendship Day

Today is Friendship Day at Faith’s school, they were asked to bring some pictures of them with foreigner friends. Good thing that one friend of mine just had a vacation here in the Philippines, her sisters from Ireland and Australia went home as well. And last month during the Christening of the son of her sister, we were invited for the party, I didn’t slip any chance to take some pictures of my daughter with them, it was just right because of this project. Yesterday I went to the mall to have 4 pictures developed and we submitted it today, when Faith went out from the classroom, she handed me right away her star! Yes she got a star today because of the pictures we submitted; it was an International Friendship Day indeed for all of us.

Under The Heat Of The Sun

Since Mj and I are so seldom to be together since she is not yet swimming for her training, I always posted Faith’s updates instead since I am already the one monitoring her updates at school. I could not take pictures of Mj as well unlike before since she is already a teenager and she somewhat enjoyed her being a slight independent. Her school now keeps her busy from projects, assignments, exams and even other activities. Recently she is an official Girl Scout member; they had this pledge at school that it made her very tired when she got home. She said that they were under the sun for like a half day, they have to do some pledge for their Girl Scouting, they also have to listen to some programs that were scheduled for them. She could not wait for their camping that would happen very soon.

When the program was finish, she didn’t wasted any time and she went to the carpool right away. It was so hot that she could not contained it anymore, their carpool had an aircon so it helps her freshen up. There is one wish that I would like Mj to have and that is a certificate, proving that she finished the school until college. I have a trust in her that she would finish, if she would concentrate more on her studies.
