Graduation Photos of my Two Darling Daughters



I have been meaning to post graduation photos of my daughters but being a computer illiterate that I am, I kept putting it off. I have been begging my youngest daughter to walk her mother step by step on how to scan pictures, and she finally gave in.

"Okay, put the pictures in the scanner and I will be there shortly," my daugher said.

I quickly went to my bedroom where my computer is located and did exactly what she told me.

"I wonder which way should I position my photo?" I murmured.

"This way, mom!" "Thanks!"

Finally, I can get to showcase my daughter's graduation photos to all my friends, blogger friends, that is. As a mom, I am allowed to brag about my daughters once in a while, right? Well, A, who is graduating in high school this May, belongs to the top ten percent of the graduating class. Mom and dad are proud of her. She will be receiving an award on April 26 and so whether it is a working day or not, I always make time for this occasion. One good thing about our boss is he is very accomodating and understanding. A recently recieved a tuition waiver at a university in AZ, renewable every year through the four years, depending on whether she can maitain a certain grade point average. Am keeping my fingers crossed...hehe.

The other picture is my other daughter S taken on her graduation two years ago. She had posted one of the highest point averages in the history of her high school. She was also chosen as the "2005 Woman of the Year" which was really a feather in her cap. She was the finalist for a National Merit Scholarship by obtaining an high score on the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test she took 3 years ago.

Hi Belle. Congratulations to A and S. I admire them for being beautiful and intelligent too. Having such gifted children is certainly something to be really proud of.

BTW, thanks for your comment on my blog regarding "Friendship Gone Astray." Thanks for sharing that. The letter is a great advice and I hope it will be a good instrument to clear things out.

Alam mo, ang ganda talaga ng product ng combination ng pinay at american di ba? Our malay features soften the caucasian sharps and angles ... di ba?

Hi Belle! Long time reader of your blog. You have such beautiful daughters and so smart and talented as well. Kudos to your girls -- and I believe their mother and father should also be praised for raising such wonderful children.

Belle TH said...

@Cathy, I sent an email already. wish you good luck! thanks for the comments.

K said...

Arrgghh not again. Everytime I write something your comment box, it would disappear like all the time.... I just wrote a long comments. Maybe it's just my connection.

I said, funny how you say "to brag about", of course you are allowed, this is your blog. Whoelse can be so 'prouder' with your lovely daughters, syempre ang NANAY.

I can't remember if I had my Grad photo taken but I remembered, those were the Aqua Net years, the girls in our batch had asked to use that, patigasan at pataasan pa for the college year book.

Check ko nga si BUGOY.

If a mother can't brag about her children, what else is there to brag about...

You have two lovely daughters not only from the outside but also from the inside.

You're so lucky to have wonderful daughters. But you see...they wouldn't be like that if they dont have wonderful parents.

Congratulations!
