Nissa sent me this photo yesterday. It’s Nate’s latest achievements in Grade 1. By August 24 if schools push through, he’ll be in Grade 2.

And she accompanied it with these inspiring words.

Nate, ever since you started schooling, you’ve never failed to make us proud of your scholastic achievements. You growing up to be a sweet, loving, brave and generous kid means everything. Your medals and awards are just icing on the cake. We hope you know how very happy you make us. We love you, dear Nate. Congratulations on a job well done!

1st grade done, next.

Nate was left home when  Nissa and Obet came to visit us  yesterday but Nissa sent these pictures of him taken today.

Chubby, chubby, tabachingching!

Look at his photos. I just laughed seeing him and I miss him all the more.

Look at how he poses in front of the camera with matching shades…haha!

Enjoying the water.

It still seems like summer here. The sun is in its full glory.

Ang mag-ina….bow!

Two front teeth still missing? They all look happy.

In all the more than four months that I haven’t seen him, he has definitely grown.

Haha, I smiled when I saw this. Nate’s simple gift to Nissa on Valentine’s Day. Look at the crude style those paper hearts were made….beautiful.  It’s a note (again) saying she is an excellent cook and a rose. Sweet. Love it. This is not the first time he wrote to  Nissa. When we were at the hospital a few months ago, he also wrote the same thing that Nissa is #1 when it comes to cooking.

See you in a while Nate.

Nissa calls this “pampagood vibes”, that feeling of being positive and grateful for all the graces that comes Nate’s way.

He is a grader now (Grade one)in the same school where he spent his kindergarten. His hard works and efforts are rewarded.

Great job Nate. Nonna is proud of you 🙂

Sometimes I often smile and laugh about Nate’s poses in front of the camera. He has a signature pose which he learned  years ago when he joined an acting workshop one summer.

He looks like an endorser of a fruit juice ad 🙂

Some of my friends say that his looks is more on the side of the Abuel which is my maiden name. Some say he looks more like one of my brothers. I say, it’s more like Nissa and Obet combined (but of course).

Mother and son, enjoying the moments together. This was also taken yesterday when they celebrated Father’s Day.

the kiss….

That’s how he kisses when in the mood with a tight hug and tight embrace. Nissa said, “araw ni Daddy ngayon pero may eksena pa rin si Mommy”.  Yeay 🙂

Nissa says, “finally, we have a graduate, sixteen more years to go”. 

Sixteen years if of course a long time when you wait for it, but when you just let it pass and wouldn’t mind the passing days, in a blink, you’re done.

There were lots of photos in Nissa’s camera  about the event but she is posting them in increments. These are those photos that stand out though. Since some of them are in high-res, I opted to post them here.

Nate on 3-23-19

Yes, the school has just given their grades/report cards for the third grading period and he maintained the first slot.

Proud Nonna here. I remember those days when your mommy and your ninong used to receive awards every school year until your mommy graduated Magna  Cum Laude in college. You have passed on the good gene Nissa 🙂

Nilahat mo na –  Batang Maasahan, Joyful Thanksgiver, Busy Bee.  Love that perfect attendance. Hope to see you next Saturday.

Again, for the nth time, I am proud of this little boy.  They were just given their report cards for the second grading and he got the highest score just like the first grading period.

When a family member is recognized for his achievements, you feel like you are also a winner and you feel that pride of place for being his Nonna.

Ang batang maasahan (a kid you could rely on), a joyful thanksgiver and a busy bee. I could understand the busy bee. He is just so active sometimes he volunteers with works that he can handle. At his young age, he is so responsible.

Proud Nonna here. See you tomorrow baby.

Last night, Nissa sent me this photo of Nate’s awards for the first grading period of the school year. So happy to see that his efforts paid off.

He is number one in his class with an average grade of 96%. Nissa said that more than the academic excellence,  she is  more happy about his  Character Trait Awards – Batang Maasahan (a kid you can rely on), Joyful Thanksgiver,  Busy  Bee.  I could understand being a busy bee, he couldn’t stay in one place without looking for anything to do. As long as he is active, it’s okay.

Proud of you baby. it would surely be a nice celebration for us on Saturday and your awards are the best gifts for your Mommy who’ll be celebrating her birthday on Friday.

The other Saturday when they came over, I watched Nissa  make some reviewers for Nate for his first periodical exams this school year. so happy to this result.

So proud of you Nate, you made good again.

I still remember those days when I did the same thing for Nissa and Josef. I remember those days when I would  attend their recognition awarding. And the culmination was Nissa graduating as Magna Cum Laude in college.  I always said, “may pinagmanahan si Nate”. 

And as a reward, my son-in-law bought this for him, a  War Machine that Nate loves. He has previous toys of these action figures but he is  still collecting.

Giving rewards for a job well done motivates a child to do better.  And being smart inspires confidence.
