grader @ 7

A field demonstration is a school program which all student levels participate.  It is one big school day.  Sports fest and all grade levels prepare dance presentations for this day.  It is always celebrated during December, but since there was a storm falling in the city, they suspended the celebration and moved it on a most suitable date.  And it was scheduled yesterday.

My Zoie was excited to show me her practiced dance moves for the presentation.  It was supposed to be a family event for us, unfortunately, MIL needed hubby for an errand yesterday in which me and Zoie got a chance to join after her dance presentation.

The field demo’s theme is ‘Zumba’.  The fun thing is the faculty also joined in the presentation by preparing their own Zumba dance before the kids started their own presentation.  Of course, before everything started we need to have our own photo opp.  Just picked a few photos to post, the rest are posted in FB.

1st performance:  She’s at the middle one, she got the moves. 

I have a video of this dance, and since I am not really good at recording a video, there are lots of flaws and I am not proud to post it here.  It will be for personal watching.  Lols.

Look at those eyes… little chinita! 

I’m so proud of her!  She’s really coping up with this big school life!

‘Till her next field demonstration!



With all the busyness around the house, I realized I haven’t posted my dear Little Zoie’s grades on her 1st grading in the big school. So, here it is…

1st grading Zoie

I’m so proud of her accomplishments, though I know she’s still adjusting to her ‘big school’ life.  And not to mention the grade she got from the subject ‘Mother Tongue’ which is in our national language, Pilipino.  She’s doing great if I may say.  Haha, stage mom here.  ^_^

Right now, I am currently anticipating her grades in her second quarter, also waiting for lightscribe cd r delivery, which is both to be released and delivered respectively next week.

A little agitated ’till I get to see the results.


1st day 2nd grade

Today is my daughter’s first day of class, and she is now in second grade. This will be a different first day for her because we have transferred her to a big school. Way bigger than her former school which only housed less than 50 students. Since, it is her first day, I made hubby missed a couple of hours from work so I can accompany Little Zoie to her new school.

When we arrived at the school, I am the one who felt giddy and my daughter seemed relaxed. As we greeted her teacher and have her settle on her chair. I parted with a wave, I had kissed her before she went in. I cannot leave that instant and honestly, I am the one experiencing the separation anxiety. I had to drag myself out of the school, so I can leave her. Haha.

As a mom, I am kinda worried for her transfer though I have agreed to this. Bigger school means lots of students, and lots of students means different personalities and it is possible she might encounter kids with rough personalities. I pray she’ll be alright and also, she’ll know what to do if that happens. We thought her what to do in those kinds of situation. This morning, I had a feeling she cried because of ‘something’. You know, mother’s hunch.

This fear was confirmed when my little girl came home. First, she said that she enjoyed her big school. Then I asked her if she had a hard time looking for her service as they we’re released at the end of their period. She said she had a hard time, but when she saw my cousin, her aunt sending my niece to school, she pointed to Zoie where she can find the school service. Then in a small voice, she said “mom, i cried”. So, in a panic voice, I asked her why did she cry.  She said, a boy grabbed the cover of her pencil case and doesn’t want to give it back even though she’s trying to get it.  She cried, of course, being in a different environment, but then her girl classmates called out to their teacher and was told what had happened.  The teacher made the boy said sorry to her.

I was afraid she’ll might be bullied but as it turned out, as my interpretation, it may be the boy’s rough way to trying to get my daughter’s attention.  Maybe they wanted to be friends with her.  I am thankful because this did not make my daughter decide not to go to the school anymore.  It is just one experience for her and she’s strong enough to shake it off from her ‘happy 1st day of school’.  Thank GOD for that!  I didn’t realize she’s that strong despite always asking for help, and right then and there, I realized she’s really growing to be independent.  Time is flying so fast, next time I will not be able to hold her hand like I use to.

Just an emotional mom here…
