As I mentioned in the post yesterday, we have enrolled my son on a 3-in-1 sports summer camp. He was very excited to start the camp 2 days ago, but today, he was a bit reluctant to go. He was probably tired from walking around the mall before going to the training. (Lesson learned! Don’t go anywhere else before training.)

Anyway, we encouraged him to join the camp and to play with the other boys. As you can see from this photo, he is the smallest in the whole camp.

For the first two weeks, they are set to learn about playing the ultimate disc.

It includes a lot of running and catching the disc.

During one of the times that he was heading back to us for a water break, he stumbled and fell. He bruised his knees and started to cry. He had minor injuries on his left knee. Even though he was tired and hurt, I was proud to see him go back to the field… still crying but consoling himself, and trying to be brave and persevering in learning the sport.

It is through tough moments like these, when your son is hurt but you have to let him go through it,  that you will  know that your son is growing up with character. Being brave and persevering when it hurts – is a character we all need to learn.


(Here is a photo of his bruise taken at home after the training today.)

  1. The bruise looks nasty! But glad to know he’s toughened up. :)

  2. Good job, Mommy Chris! :) Praise GOD for our kids! How old is your little boy now? :) I hope and pray Tim would react the same way, if ever the same thing would happen to him. :) God bless always!

    they say you can never be brave if you only have good things happen to you…a mom’s comforting hug will surely heal it fast…

    Toby is showing toughness in the midst of pain. He’s growing up into a fine young man.

    Playing Frisbee is so much fun even our dog loves to play with us with it.

  8. I was encouraging the kid to enroll in any summer sports camp this vacation but he said he’d rather enroll in a cooking camp. Problem is, wala namang malapit sa amin.

  9. That’s a good exercise!
