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 freestyle.
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.
I am still overwhelmed and tired right now, I still can’t think of anything to post some of my blogs are not updated, but I will be back I promised. It is just overly hectic this past few days from doing the paper works for our competition down to the day that our competition was held. I tell you, the moment I entered the gate of Woodridge, I got nervous but then when I was already at the officiating table, the nervous was gone but it was replaced by excitement. I know then that the competition will turn out good.
