This is an all-in-one blog post and update. Being a SAHM, my only escape from my kids is when their loving grandmother takes the time to get them off my hands for a while. I have 15 minutes to write this post and I have a lot of things to say!
My daughter got Star Pupil Award which is given to all the students, and she got Word Smart Award, which I shall fairly admit to you that it does not come as a surprise because her vocabulary is so wide and she has been using words that I must admit, I didn't even know about when I was her age.
My son also got Star Pupil Award and Nature Smart Award. Upon my research about Nature Smart Award, it is given to the one who is aware of his surroundings, loves nature, insects, trees and I know for a fact that my son loves to make sure the trash makes it to the trash can.
Not many awards are given and I am proud that in my son's class of 16 students at least he was a recipient of an extra certificate. The same goes with my daughter since my daughter's class are composed of 18 students and I think there are just 7-8 extra certificates to be given away so I am really a proud mom.
I also discovered the difficulty of having their culminating activity at the same time. I am luckier than others because my mom and my husband came, but I still wish I could be at 2 places at once. My kids look for me all the time since they are told to give their certificates to their mom.
I am both dreading and looking forward to the time when my daughter becomes a Prep student. Where the grades are not in alphabet anymore but of numerical values. Qualifying for a Most Outstanding is tremendously difficult since their school requires them to have an average of 96, no grade lower than 95 and no letter grade below VG. I don't want to pressure my kids. I think highschool and college grades are more important.
Whew! Such a long post! You're still here? Thanks for reading my proud moment!
