Last week, Nicky graduated from his preparatory level with a silver honor medal honor and 4 other academic awards. Allan and I are so proud to have such an industrious and intelligent child! I'd like to share some of our dear boy's shining "silver" moments as he says goodbye to prep school and takes his first big step into "big school" at the San Beda College Alabang this coming June.
Nicky addresses the crowd with his opening speech. We were so shocked to watch him because we didn't know he MEMORIZED his speech! We saw him go up the stage, let go of his cue card (which we thought all along he needed to read off from), and did the speech on his own. That was for us already a big achievement for that day! :-)
The proud parents of the Top 4 graduates with honors. We were surprised that Nicky (along with the 3 other graduates with honors) was featured in the city's monthly newsletter!
Nicky's farewell photo op with his "girl-friend" of 3 years, Bianca. Bianca and Nicky will be going to different schools for 1st grade, so i have no clue if they will ever see each other again. He begged to stay behind just so he could have his moment alone with her! Again, Nicky is only 7 years old... I have no idea what goes on in his head, but Bianca seems to feel the same. Her whole family jumped in to take photos of these two kids, and were waving sadly at us like it was a real "break-up" of some sort.
