Last month was the Department of Education swimming competition in all places in the Philippines. If last year, Davao was not able to go to finals this year some of the swimmers were able to compete until the finals, they are indeed competing already. Last year, the first one would always be MIMAROPA but now Davao proves its worth in the pool. During the relay, Davao were able to get the 2nd place and won about p3,000.00. I congratulated one of Mj’s friend Dj for also competing until the finals. But even though they are posting their adventures in FB, Mj still do not want to go back on her training. Indeed I could see her playing Basketball with her cousin Dodong.
It was Saturday in the morning that I dragged my two daughters to the pool at the club house. It is so muggy here, so summer and we need to have some splash before Mj and I will hit the road for her Kumon.
We all know that my kids are so into water and so I plan for Faith to send her to swimming lesson again on May. I hope this time she would learn how to kick and how to really swim.
When we arrived at the pool, she exclaimed right away she wants to do a canon ball and so when she jumped she shouted “Canon ball with a splash! That was why all the people around her looked and laughed at her.
Mj on the other hand, went to swim on her own at the other side of the pool. She still did her stroke so perfect. She even out-swims the other boys who are swimming there on that day. They asked Mj to swim with them but Mj still went first.
Today, another friend invited us to go to their house for swimming. Their subdivision has a nice leisure pool that the kids can enjoy. It has been a while that Mj was not able to play and enjoy in the water and this time would be the best time for her since my friend is inviting her. So after her session in Kumon we will be heading immediately to my friend’s house to have some fun, long chitchat so to speak while the kids are enjoying running and swimming in the pool. This has been a long plan for both of us but it just didn’t pursue because of some glitches and circumstances that occur along the way but now I guess we will make it.
When my eldest daughter was active in competitive swimming, did very well. She won several medals and other awards. I am proud of her and the effort she put forth to win them all. When I think of the various personalized trophies she won and how well she was able to compete against those in her age group you can tell that I am a proud mom. The personalized trophies are really cool, and they are reminders of our skill and our accomplishments. She can see her name on a personalized trophy and know that she and she alone did all the hard work and preparation to become a champion swimmer.
