Finally, Zoie’s 1st quarter examination results are in!

It may not be the results I used to seeing but hey, that’s what her powers can do.  If you’re an avid reader of this blog, you’ll know that she can perfect any tests and quizzes in school.

Honestly, as a mom, I make sure that we learn and review lessons included in the exams ahead of time.  I make quizzes and let her answer a few exercises in their books, if they missed it, to make sure she gets them well.  So, I’m a little sad if she didn’t get high scores just like before.  I know I’m setting my bars high, that’s what she performed before, but I guess her learning level changes as she grows, right?

Next time, we will stay focus and do all the studying she needs, but as of now, for these exams, it will be our stepping stone to greater grades!



Yehey!  It was an accomplishment for me and big sister Zoie!

As I have ranted the declamation piece Little Zoie has to deliver on stage for the Linggo ng Wika school event on a previous post, I have never been prouder that my little English speaking daughter has delivered her speech excellently.  Ha!  I know I’m a stage mom! ^_^

I could have been posted her ‘talumpati‘ but I was a silly videographer… I thought I have recorded it in hubby’s android phone but alas, it was a disaster!  Too bad because hubby and MIL was late that time and they didn’t see Little Zoie delivering her much practiced Tagalog speech.

Aside from the talumpati, she also performed a Muslim dance along with the rest of the Grade 1 class.


After all the kids’ performances, and after eating the shared potluck, the little ones have fun with the camera.

Nutrition month has already passed and we are currently anticipating another school event, Linggo ng Wika.  I always anticipate such school events because I know we are going to prepare costumes for our little students.  Just like the okra costume me and my mother-in-law helped create.

from my personal blog,


Linggo ng Wika is one school event for the month of August, Nutrition month is last month, July, of course, it happens every year.  Like most of the school events, we will be needing another costume.  We had one for the last two years but I’m afraid it doesn’t fit Little Zoie anymore.  She has grown way taller than last year, and maybe they’ll be requiring a different Filipina costume for this year’s Linggo ng Wika.

The next school event that I’m sure to prepare a month earlier will be the United Nations Day.  Just as practiced, each student will represent a country, included in the United Nations Organization, and will wear that country’s national costume.  See, another costume to prepare!  Haha.  I don’t want to be stressed out with this kind of extra curricular activity expenses that’s why I am anticipating it way too early.  The latter school event I mentioned is to be held on October, fall season.

Speaking of fall season, another school event that pops in my mind is a homecoming event.  This event is when the homecoming royalties, the homecoming king and queen, have been anticipating months ahead just like me.  And it will be a great help for the returning alumni to be able to prepare for their big event by visiting this site — — pick out their perfect homecoming dresses 2014.

Preparing for any school events, big or small, ahead of time is not such a bad idea.  Of course, take note also, to inquire on things relating to the school event.  If you just assume on what costumes your kids should wear, instead of creating a smooth and steady flow when preparing, it will all be headache if you miss on details.  That’s why, ahead of time, I am already shooting my questions on upcoming school events weeks earlier.  As soon as possible if you must.
