Micas Sports Days

Here I am again never tired of my rants...never mind because my daughter is growing so fast. I don't want to miss any single part of it, it's like documenting every single one of them so she sees and read it here and she know she can rely in every word I wrote here and when she has questions about her childhood she can always ask me or read MYB if I am not around.

I wasn't as lucky as her, there were no computers when I was a kid and blogging wasn't invented yet, camera phones are non-existent and even cameras are rare to middle class families in my country. I have few snaps of my childhood on different occasions and I vaguely remember everything that happens to me except for few unforgettable ones and the ones that my mom told me while I was growing up.

Let's not take this post to a different level, I just want to share my daughter's stories with you. This is simply about the annual sports day at her school. This type of activity at school teaches children that physical fitness is important for a fit body and mind. Not just that, it teaches them team work, camaraderie, friendship, competitivenes, and acceptance, more so it is fun to participate in this kind of events at school.

When Mica was in KG 1 and KG 2, the sports day is held at school premises only. During her 1st and 2nd grade, they move to a bigger venue at Dubai Police Stadium where all students from Grade 1 to 8 participate in the event. I still have the video of Mica during her KG 1 sports day and whenever we watch that, me and my husband could not stop giggling, she looks so cute while doing the jumping jacks which she hardly did right, it doesn't matter actually, she exerted efforts to it and did what she can do. We love that moment when we first saw her run and have fun with her classmates.

Mica - KG 1 @ 3 years old-first on the left - waiting for the cue from her teacher

Mica - Grade 1 @ 5 years old - lemon relay first in line next to the girl in yellow

Mica - Grade 2 @ 6 years old - aerobic excercise - girls line on the left - fourth in line wearing orange T

Did you notice that I don't have the KG 2 picture, could not locate it in my hard drive. sigh!

Ok so thats that, her annual sports day. Mica is now seven years old and in Grade 3, she is more eager to learn and have more fun. We are looking forward to a fruitful year ahead. Love you anak.
