For this year, my husband and I made a big decision: to transfer our boys to a new school. At first, I was worried that they might be having a hard time adjusting with the new place, new classmates and teachers.
First day wasn’t that hard, as they told me. Then as days passed on, I realized it wasn’t a bad decision at all. Here’s why:
Here’s my eldest who got assigned to speak at their school’s Parents’ Orientation for new pupils/parents. Check out this video:
My eldest son’s exposure at a writing workshop, “Media Festival: Raising the Banner of Excellence and Media Leadership” last July 11-12, 2015 at Dao Diamond Hotel, Tagbilaran City.
Here comes, August. Here’s what the boys did during their Buwan ng Wika.
Here are videos of my youngest son’s singing and dancing stints:
A video of his singing stint. He’s a bit shy, but that’s normal.
Their school principal was my former teacher way back in high school. When we got a chance to talk, she told me, their school is jam packed with school activities that are geared towards helping pupils boost their self confidence.
So, here goes September and the various activities they’ve done in school:
September 7, 2015 – Mr. & Ms. Sportsfest 2015
Here’s a video of his talent presentation. Hubby and I are both proud. We helped him prepare everything from costumes to presentations and everything else. We’re really proud. He won Best in Talent.
Here’s the video of his question and answer portion. He forgot a few words and thought he wouldn’t get any reward for it. But he got the Best in Question and Answer.
My sons’ September 10 – 11 sports fest activities:
My boys are a handful. But seeing them healthy and enjoying life to the fullest removes all my stress away. Helping them with all their school activities and all other activities they want to join, can be quite stressful. Yet, that’s the essence of parenting, right? To be there for the kids every step of the way.
Time will come, we parents, can’t be there for them all the time. The important thing is, while we’re still alive and kicking, we should give them all the love we can give. Make them feel that they don’t just have parents, they have friends as well. So, someday, we can be assured that even if we aren’t there, they’ll make the right decisions. If they make the wrong ones, at least, they learn to stand up, move on and make up for it.
I (and your Papa) love you so much, my E boys! Always remember, we may be your parents, but we can be your friends too.
