Award and certificates

Naomi’s final grade was short of .3 percent to qualify for the elusive Harvest of Achievers Award. But according to her adviser, she remains in the top three among the honor students in her class. She got an average of 90.97. The grade to qualify to receive the Achievers medal is 91 percent. Sayang noh? My daughter is disappointed at first, but she’s not the kind who will sulk the whole time. She promised us to do better next school year.

She got a Model Citizen Award for her performance in her class. And just after doing my business at the registration office, I saw the copy of their school paper where two of her poems were published.

Khalil didn’t make it to the Harvest of Achievers as well, but he received three certificates during Recognition Day. 

With or without an award, I’m still happy for my kids because I know they did their best without Mommy’s help.

Congratulations kids. Pagbutihin pa next year ha.:)

Walk to a healthier you

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of All opinions are 100% mine.

Hubby always reminds me to have some form of exercise to stay fit. As you know, I’m on the heavy side and he knows how determined I am to shed pounds. I would like to follow hubby’s walking regimen everyday. He walks for 10 to 15 minutes on his way to the office. According to him walking is a good form of exercise. He perspires a good deal, but it makes him feel lighter afterward. It also helps in controlling his blood pressure. At his age, he is already taking maintenance medicine for high blood pressure.

I can attest to the benefits of walking to my husband so I would like to include walking as part of my regimen every morning. For a warm up, hubby will accompany me to walk around the neighborhood. He will have two days off this week in observance of the Holy Week. I really intend to shed some pounds and walking will be a good start. What do you think?
