There is no things that can surpass of these gifts during my kids Moving Up day, I was surprised when I found out that Faith was able to get an academic award, she received a silver medal for that. When I arrived at the venue, I saw Faith smiling so wide, grinning while looking at me. Her eyes are saying something, something that I and she will be proud of and I know exactly what it is.
My eldest daughter Moving Up day is scheduled in the afternoon. Mj was able to get a special award from her swimming. I can’t be happier seeing these awards on our wall, wish to have a wall full of their awards.
As what I have mentioned before with my other blog, Mj got only less than three weeks of training, two weeks to be exact. She doesn’t want to go back to swimming but when her Principal asked her to do it, she can’t decide easily she want to say no but later on her principal was able to convinced her.
When she decided, of course I can’t just let her join the competition without training. So last month, I decided to have her back on training but we did not go back to our previous coach. Her school has a swimming instruction, and we decided to take him instead. He is not really a competitive coach, he teaches only swimming but he does well. He was able to let Mj concentrate with her training and there are times too that they do some exercise for her breathing.
Less than three weeks, I already told their Principal not to expect much because to get the strength back with just two weeks of training will not be enough.
But knowing Mj, she has the drive to compete. Even it is hard when she determined to do it she can especially with the support that she got from her Principal, classmates and teachers. It was overwhelming.
She got too nervous.
When I called her during the competition, her voice was so low I know that she is freaking nervous so I told her to just enjoy and have fun.
When I arrived, her teacher then told that she was able to qualify. They are so proud of Mj’s performance. She was not able to hit the first place but she did it. She was rank 3rd and definitely she got it.
Congratulations Mj, I am so proud of you!
