Last Sunday morning, Hannah had her Sports Day event in school. I was especially glad (as was she) that she could make it, because my little girl had been ill the whole of the previous week and had missed 5 whole days of school. She had been down with a very high fever (caused by bacterial infection) which had gone up and down, with a high of 40.2°C, and had rendered her weak and also made her lose her appetite.
Anyway, that’s all in the past and I am very proud of my little fighter as she battled her illness with a steel front.
Hannah is in K2, and as is tradition, the K2 kids would set up food stalls for a bake sale with proceeds going to their class fund. Hannah made the poster for her stall at home, because she was still recuperating at home when her friends made theirs in school. On the day before Sports Day, I made some wholesome and healthy chocolate beetroot and pumpkin muffins to pack for sale.

It was an overcast Sports Day, so it wasn’t too hot, to the relief of “people who fear the heat” like me. The event started with the march past… just look how happy Hannah is!
…followed by a warm-up exercise session
Hannah was aiming to get her first gold medal from Sports Day…
…and she successfully did!!!
Hannah continued her entrepreneurial stint selling her muffins, but I think at the end of the day the highlight was winning that coveted gold medal.
