The past few days have been overwhelming! My family and I cannot thank the Lord enough for so much blessings!
No, we didn’t win in lotto or something; how we wish! But it’s beyond what money can buy.
Last Thursday, I failed to attend to my son’s Math Quiz Bee in his preschool because I was on an appointment that turned out to be life-changing for me, career-wise; I’ll share it here soon. For now, here’s the photo that Tina took during Gabby’s addition-subtraction contest.
Then Saturday came and off we went here…
We arrived in Ateneo past 11 AM and there we dressed up Gabby to look like a cute farmer…
With camisa de chino in celadon green that I bought for only PhP 50 in Divisoria (where else?), his props of faux grains for another P50, his old yellow shirt that his mom wrapped around his head with a straw hat purchased at PhP 35 all bought in Tabora Street completed his look.
“PLANTING RICE”, his 5-stanza-poem was randomly given to him by their teacher several weeks ago.
Before they start the program, I took a photo of Gabby with MY CRUSH FOR HIM among his classmates. Her name is Chloe. Isn’t she lovely? Bagay po ba sila ? …No strings attached yet! It’s just me.
I told Tina while we’re waiting for Gabby’s turn to conquer the stage that I never experienced such palpitations and extreme nervousness since my Medical Board Exams. I was too anxious that I wanted our son to do it well and be done with ease.
And after 50 Kindergarten students from 2 sections have recited their pieces, Gabby bagged 4th place which gave him the trophy and made him a winner in 2 consecutive years.
When he was in Nursery last year, he was named 3rd placer on the same contest. You may view it HERE.
“This Declamation Contest is not intended to exhibit the proficiency of the child, but to give him/her experience in speaking before an audience. Nervousness is thus eradicated, confidence gained and stage presence developed.” -TTA.
We’re having PPS (Proud Parent Syndrome) again. He just recently ranked Top 2 in his class for their 3rd quarterly grading, then he won a trophy for his declamation and a medal for his Math Quiz Bee. The boy deserves a prize he wanted. But it will be granted to him in due time as we’ve agreed.
Here are Gabby’s mentors in school (left) and his greatest teacher at home (right)…
TINA and I always feel like a WINNER for having a son like him.
We’re just so proud of loving him.
We always thank God for giving Gabby to us.
God is great! His love is overflowing.
PS : We had an early dinner somewhere… That’s on my next post. Till then.
Have a great week everyone! God bless.
