Wordful Wednesday - Cross Country

I was so proud of Ian on Saturday. 

He took part in a Cross Country Event for grades 4-6.  They broke them up by grade.  The girls & boys raced separately.  Each school in our district had teams. The 4th grades ran 1/2 mile and the 5th & 6th raced 3/4 of a mile.
{Lily sat on Jeff's shoulders so she could see Ian run.  All the while chanting GO IAN GO!}

While he didn't come in first, I am SOOOO proud that he wanted to do it and completed the 1/2 mile.
(my nephew is in 5th grade and ran also... 3/4 of a mile is a long way)
I am proud of both of them!

I wish they had cross country at #1's school. He's not that awesome at team sports, but he's a really good runner. Gets a lot of practice running from his little brotheres!

What a great activity - I know that my kids would love to do something like that - I might mention it to the kids principle.

Good job for you son and nephew!
