Parents with kids who graduated from school are floating on cloud nine these days. All their hard work and commitment to send their children to school have paid off. I can so relate to all of them because I have a son who graduated from Grade 6 and a daughter who completed third year high school. It’s overwhelming to see them walk up on stage to receive their diploma and awards. Even parents who are based abroad would never pass the chance of sharing that special moment with their kids even through teleconferencing services. That’s the beauty of the internet; you will never miss an important occasion with your family no matter how many miles you are apart from each other.
For my kids: Seeing you both accomplished something for yourselves means that we have done something right in raising the two of you. We love you guys!
Rue is one of my favorite characters in the movie Hunger Games. Thanks to my daughter Naomi for drawing this.
She was the smallest and youngest tribute, from District 11 who was selected to participate in the 74th Annual Hunger Games. thehungergames.wikia.com
Hubby got our son a nice wristwatch as graduation gift last week. We also treat our kids to a movie and a sumptuous snack in one of the popular malls near our area. It is our simple way of celebrating our children’s hard work and success in school. What’s admirable about them is that they don’t expect anything lavish or grand from us. They are happy with the little things that we can get them because they understand that anything expensive like Monster headphones is not part of our priority list at the moment. We’ve been saving up for their tuition fee this coming school year, so we can not splurge on luxurious items as easy as that.
