school blues

This is Jerry , favorite tv program of my kids, Tom and Jerry, they love watching it daily and it really made them laugh out loud every time they watch it. It's been a year when the scenario is just exactly the same. During the end of the school year in nursery when I got disappointed for the final result of my dearest Chloee. Last year when her rank down to 8th from Top 3 because of the other part of grading system the "extra-curricular activities". I hate that feeling, I really felt bad for that time. Ending was still she became a part of the Top TEN with Best in Science award. Now, in kinder for the past 2 quarter, she made it to the top. Ranked 1 is such a big blast for me, I know she can make it and everybody around the school knows she's deserving to stay on her place but because of consecutive absences, I doubt it. 3rd quarter result in ranking is strictly confidential that's why I don't know what happen to her rank for now, hopefully this coming finals it will end in a better result although you missed some lessons I know you can be at your best anak. I know it's not your fault, if can do something for to get your thrown back, I will. Anyways, whatever is the result for final grading I know you did your best. For me your my no.1 baby, i love you!

Happy 2012

The year 2011 is such a great year for me.
So many trials and problems arise.
I expect too much during the 1st quarter that's why
I got disappointments on later part.

When the middle part came,
nothing change, still the same
there are those people who has the attitude
but I have the character and think to be good.

The last quarter is also tough
when our bread and butter is gone.
But still standing with faith and will
ready to face and embrace the new year!

Happy new year to all us! May our Lord God bless us all this year. Good Day!
