As a mom this is one job I enjoy doing this time of the year when school is about to start - Covering Books and Notebooks!
Thankful that my kids still needs my help, even with the tiniest thing, makes me feel important. I will never get tired of giving them a hand. I know time will come that they will all be on their own, doing things independently.
Summer time, a vacation time for most. For a parent like myself, its a time to let my kids do some extra outdoor activities. It has always been my desire that my kids will engage in those activities instead of indulging in computers and other gadgets.
Finally, this summer, its a bit rewarding for me because I didn't have to push them into training.
They have their own dreams that they wanted to achieve in the future. As my kids mature, they will try to achieve whatever it is that they want. All they need is my encouragement, my support and my love as parent.
One of my son got himself some advance training in Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Calculus. He is even interested in studying Mandarin language but we have to defer it for a while due to monetary constraint. :-)
My youngest got himself into basketball as he was inspired by the NBA stars like D.Rose, S.Curry, K.Irving, L.James, K.Thompson, etc. We enrolled him in Elevate Sports Academy and we saw a lot of improvements. He is more active now!
Now, my wish is for us to go out-of-town. . . and enjoy whatever is left of summer time.
