I was supposed to go to Acey's school last Friday to check on the deliberation result and find out what her rank is but because I took a double shift to be able to attend a conference call at 1:30 am and finish some work, I got exhausted. I slept when I got home. My sister in law went to Achiever's school to check the details of the recognition since her daughter (my niece) is also an awardee. She told to me that Acey will get "with high honor" award since her average is between 91 to 91.99. Of course, I felt proud of my little girl. In the afternoon of the same day, My kids and I went to Robinson mall. They played in the amusement center. CJ won a snoopy stuff toy from one of the games and he excitedly gave it to me. Afterwards, we went to the department store to buy make up and some accessories to match Acey's gown on their recognition day. I received a text message from Acey's teacher to confirm that my daughter is "with high honor awardee" AND a model pupil at the same time. I was ecstatic.
On Saturday, we went to SM mall in Clark to buy gift for a nephew who was scheduled for baptism on Sunday, the same day the recognition will be held. I took my kids to the toy section so I'll have an idea what toy they like including CJ. Acey is eyeing for a Barbie stuffs like Barbie casual wear, sandals & dolls while CJ kept on going to the far corner where Zoids and Battle Bida Man toys are displayed. I also recall they're requesting for new DVDs for their PS2.
The most exciting event happened on Sunday. My father together with my mom fetched us in our apartment and dropped us in Achievers School. We immediately went to the assembly area and the program started past 8am. Acey & I were on the second line. She got the first award for model pupil, we were called again for the second award. Going up on stage to pin the medal to your child and receive the certificate is truly fulfilling and heartwarming, exactly the same emotion I felt when CJ was proclaimed as Mr. Nursery in the same school. Acey's focus and passion for studies paid off. She doesn't really have an idea what those awards mean but all she understood is, she got two medals. I emailed my hubby everything that transpired on that day and I suggested to schedule his next vacation every March so he can attend event like this, the kids will certainly be happier and delighted if he's around.
