SCWA Recital 2016

Remember my last entry when I told you Hayley likes to perform? Well, here is another proof. As part of their school curriculum, Hayley chose to specialize in singing which I thanked for cause her first choice is to learn drums which is too expensive for us (she wants her own drum set).

She performed three songs, all pop music (Black Magic, Roar and a Jessie J song) with her group, while the rest of her classmates only performed a maximum of two songs. She was proud to share that she volunteered to join another group performance. Who won't be proud of that?

Class Picture 2015-2016

Hayley will be a 4th grader next school year. So how is she? Up to this date, she is still using the same set of uniform she was using since Grade 1. Yeah she did not grow much, she got a bit taller though. A bit alarming because she is still a picky eater thus the small frame.

When it comes to her academic performance, she is doing okay. Though not excellent but she somehow delivers. She still is part of the honor list. She gets intimidated with her English Speaking classmates, but is trying hard to keep up. She is consistent Top 3.

 A whiner, you would often hear her complain about being bullied by her classmates maybe because of her size. I feel sorry for her that is why I am encouraging her to eat more so she would be able to fight back.

She wants to perform. You would find her dancing when nobody is watching and is a trying hard singer. That is why, for the last three summers, we enrolled her in a dancing class and there is no plan of stopping. Last January, she joined for the first time a beauty contest and I conclude that she really loves to have audience. Maybe we have an "artista" in the making.

Still a baby of the family, she wants everyone's attention and she deserves it!

Hayley's Summer2014 Dance Class in Pictures: Ballet

So amazed with her Pink Costume. Saw it for the first time 30 minutes before the show. 

 Kids will be kids. Adviced to stay backstage before the show but they strutted their cute costume happily while waiting for the show to finally start.

 Stay PUT. The show's about to start so the little girls with the help of the big girls waited patiently for the green light.

 Pose little cuties.

 And on with the show. The ballet piece revolves around the famous children story - THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL.

 The Soldiers

 The much-awaited entrance of the ballerina fairies.

Sorry for the camera phone shot, this is the best I can get when Hayley decided to join a screening for a school Fashion Show. Her first, Hayley exuded the confidence and fighting spirit we thought she lacks. Here is the story. I came early to Hayley's school for her lunch when I saw an announcement about the screening. behold, she saw some preschoolers undergoing the screening and she decided she wants to try as well. So we stayed a bit longer for the screening. While waiting, grade schoolers from 1st grade to 6th grade are already playing/practicing their walk for the fashion show screening, while Hayley just stayed at the backstage coaxing her classmates to go first on stage. I told her to watch closely how the elder kids do their walk and should try to imitate. She got envious with the other kids whose moms are coaching them and even going up the stage to the extent of doing the fashion show as well (literal stage mommies on the lose). She wanted me to do the same, instead I told her that she show me her walk and got a bit disappointed when she gave me a shy walk. 

I told her to take a rest as I put on powder and fresh shirt on her. She then sat down beside her teacher who is assigned of the screening so that when the latter will officially start she will be the first on the list and we can go home earlier. Alas, she is. She is number 1 and she is the first one to get out of the stage and strut. 

Seeing her practice walk, we are very anxious to see her finally go on stage and do her thing and to think she will be the very first one to go without nobody to follow. Behold, Hayley surprised us with an all smiling, both hands on waist sexy walk. We cannot help but be proud of our little girl whom we thought does not know how to do fashion show. This little one is really full of surprises. Seeing her on stage is like watching your child's first step.

Now, here is a sad part. Told that those who got in will just receive a text, Hayley kept on asking if her teacher already contacted us about the fashion show but much to our dismay, we did not receive a single text informing us that Hayley got in. Hayley got disappointed but we told her that we would organize a fashion show in our community so she can showcase her talent together with her friends. 

Now, we know, we have an entertainter and model in the making.

Father's Day 2013

Hayley may be stubborn most of the time but she can be your one sweet girl, leaving a smile on your lips adding a mark of happiness in your heart once you are hit with her love virus.

Celebrating Father's Day or any special occasions need not to be expensive.  On Father's Day of 2013, the family went to hear mass at the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage. After, we went to SM Mall and took the chance of having photo op with the Father's Day decorations. We also had barbecue for dinner and wrapped it with Mcdonald's Hot Fudge for dessert.

And here are Hayley and Papa!
