A few weeks back Master 10 (nearly 11) had his sports carnival. It was freezing cold and very VERY overcast. I arrived in time to see him run 1 event, but I had heard rumblings that he had done well in other events too. The thought of him even making 800m was a little overwhelming....but he lined up for it with all the other boys. Long story short....he came in 2nd...and I will admit to perhaps having a little moisture around my eyes.
Fast forward a couple of weeks and he comes home very excited with the news that he has made it to the Zone Carnival at Homebush for the 100m and 800m. He then presents me with these.....
No less than 5 ribbons......2nd for the high jump and 800m and 3rds for the 100m, 200m and relay race. I was so very proud of him. He has since had the Zone Carnival this week and was up against kids that train and do Little Athletics (which he does not). I was so proud of his efforts and said to him that I would share this with you all.
Thanks for allowing me this wee parental boast.
Take care and create freely.
