When we went to Sport Division on Thursday, our withdrawal letter was ready. They asked me what is the reason of our withdrawal and we told them it is because the schedule is conflict with the DACS and the kids are choosing the DACS. But we made an appeal to at least move the DACS so the kids can join the Batang Pinoy. One parent and I went to DACS office to send a letter asking them to move the DACS. The staff said that the decision is final however we are still hoping that they could move it. Thursday night I received a text message from the parent I was with to send the letter to DACS that there is a chance that the DACS can move. Late at night, we received news that it was move so we prepared our requirements to be sent to Sports Division. Yes, Mj is joining the Batang Pinoy Competition. The expenses will be shouldered by the local government.
When Mj got home yesterday with the announcement that she passed the Batang Pinoy and she is one of the delegates to go to Pagadian. I did not believe it at first but her teammate messaged her on FB and said that she is one of the delegates for Batang Pinoy. I asked her to confirm it to her coach; later the mother of her teammate called me and told me when we are going to submit our requirements. And so it was confirmed.
Today, we went to DepEd to submit our papers but when we got there, they said that the DACS and Batang Pinoy have the same schedule. We asked if it can move but they said they can’t already and if in case the decision should be coming from DACS. Between the DACS and Batang Pinoy, Mj will choose the DACS to compete but if they will move the schedule of DACS of course she will join. This is one of a lifetime opportunity and she should not slip it away.
Last Saturday, the Kadayawan Swimming Competition was held in Ateneo Campus Matina. The competition was attended by at least 150 plus swimmers. When I learned about this, I was already doubting if Mj can take a place. This competition is also the qualifying base for Batang Pinoy, which it will be held in Zamboanga this year.
She was not able to win a place however she break her time. I know it is not enough and she needs lots of training and concentration as well. I know she can do it the next swimming she will just have to be patient.
When training is smooth and she will strive hard more, and less talking she can do it.
Here’s Mj smiling at us.
My eldest daughter wanted to have a new guitar, the sounds of her latest guitar got a little busted when Faith accidentally drop it. We don’t have time to go to the mall to look for a new guitar for her because of her training. And so I just made a canvass online I found this site that has Free Shipping service. I let Mj saw the guitar and yet she can’t decide, she is thinking so many things nowadays because of her competition plus her school and Kumon. So maybe when we can just sit and talk and do nothing, we might look at it again and maybe she would pick a guitar this time.
