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.
I am here trying to write, but there are really times that even we wanted to write fast, our head does not cooperate. Imagine? I am here for 2 hours already and I am typing then deleting and typing again and deleting.,
Anyway, summer is fast approaching, I am not sure if Faith ,could continue her swimming lesson this year as she needs to enroll in summer class. We will transfer her to other school, this time it would be a real school, like many classrooms, huge playground, a space to where she can run and play. She would spent a total of 10 days for her summer class at school and if she still likes it and if we can still afford it, we would continue her for swimming lesson. I know she adores water so much like her sister.,
Mj, on the other hand will be competing next month for DAVRAA. Three of them from this club would represent Davao, I know Mj was a bit upset with her performance in CDO, although she is still belong in top 16 and that she could still join the competition in Manila, she believes she still have more to improve and that she would work hard for it. She said last week that her training was rigid these days, they have to finished 12 lapse and an additional 1,500 meters if they are late or absent. She complained but I said if she wants to reach her goal and want to be successful with this sport, she needs to do her training appropriately and she must follow what their coach is telling them to do.,
The Davao Sea Lions Swim Club will hold a swimming competition this month. Everyone is so ecstatic to make this first competition successful, we are already preparing for the event and I am thankful that everything seems okay. My husband also supported the club, he has sent a certain amount for the medals or other expenses that we will incur on its way. Even though there are many trials that we encountered while we work for this event to realized, I am still so proud because we are still intact with our vision and that is to inspire the youth to engage in the sport and not only that but also serve as a catalyst in rejuvenating the dying sport of swimming in Davao City, Philippines. Go! Go! Davao Sea Lions!
This was taken when she just graduated her summer swimming class almost 2 years ago. I just aim the camera and shoot like few times so I can get the best angle of her and I did it.
Now that she is joining competitions already, it was my wish to capture her perfectly while she dives off the water but I could not just do it, sometimes they were already in the water when my camera clicked or they were not jumping yet but last year I did it, since I am already frustrated to get her captured while she dives, I put the camera on video but when I started it, it was not on video setting but the other way around and so I was able to capture her moment diving off the water perfectly. One of my great shots ever are those two during her competitions using my ‘not so’ DSLR camera.
