Unlike with her previous school, her school now is so supportive of her. Her Principal even announced that she will give 10 merits to those students who would watch her event. The reason why, during her competition last Sunday, the cheer went so wild when she is trying her best to swim fast.

Mj saw her previous team mate in the event. It seems like nothing has changed even Mj did not already return to her previous team.

Her best friend went there to witness her event too
The whole gang went there to watch Mj performance in swimming
Last Friday was the battle for their band at school, it was held with the same schedule for Buwanang Wika. I promised to be there and watch their performance but their performance was earlier than what we expected. I wasn’t able to come since I have to pay the monthly fee for our house in Ph. 1. But when I got there, I stayed there for a while hoping to hear who won the contest. Mj was smiling when they finish their performance; she said that the audience like it and more likely their luck is with them.
Mj asked me if she can be with her friends after school so she can celebrate their successful performance. That time she asked me if she can go out with her friends, they did not announce who won the band yet. The winners were announced and it was them and Grade 8 was left unannounced, the emcee said whoever they call will be the grand winner, they bowed their head and prayed and then the emcee announced the winner. It was them!
I clapped so hard, I didn’t expect they will win but I am hoping that they will and they did. I am so proud of them. I will be posting their pictures soon.
Credits to the photographer who never got tired taking pictures of our kids. Thank you Omar, you and your camera is truly the best.
She waited for her turn to swim, look at that face so fresh and young. Sometimes I wish to be always young like her. But of course, our time has passed.

During their fly
And of course the breast stroke
Mj has been like swimming since 4th grade, I am sure to those who read my blogs, they know that she stopped for one year and she just got back now. But I am so amazed to see that her friends from before still see her as a friend. When we joined the competition the first week of this month, her friends that she met before still smiled at her and talked to her.
I just read this from a sporty girl said in a magazine “The friends you make as part of a team might just be your friends for life.” It is true even though the parents are having issues yet the kids would never mind it at all. They swim their best in the pool to win or to break their time but outside the pool or when they are relaxing whatsoever, they were giggling, laughing and talking. You will never notice that they are in a different now because of the friendship that they built some time ago, it is rooted and founded by the memories that they have shared when they were still team mates.
