Two Little Runners and a Crazy Straw Smile...

I know...a weird title for this post...but it's hard coming up with something different every time! LOL

Today the boys had their cross country carnivals at school. It was Riley's first and he was pretty keen! (It was called cross country but the preps only had to run 1 lap of the oval.) Here he is as they took off from the start line...

Looks pretty happy about it doesn't he? Well unfortunately as he rounded the first corner and he realised the other boys were passing him he lost all confidence and got a bit upset. He did finish his lap though with his teacher. We were very proud of him for sticking at it and finishing the race! It was the first time he's ever done a long distance run...poor little man... I think it was a bit of a shock to the system! I hope he has more faith in himself next year.

Later in the morning it was Ayden's year level's turn. This time they had a 2 lap run as well as a whole range of fun activities like the egg & spoon race, sack races, etc. They all had a lot of fun! I love that our school really focuses on participation and having fun with sport...especially in the younger year levels. Ayden did great! I got some really great pics but can't share them here since there are so many other kids in the shots...but I did get this one...

He won the Honorable Sportsperson award for his year level and house! He was SO proud of himself..and so were we! :) The award is in recognition of full participation and effort throughout the carnival, support of other students and showing excellent team spirit, behaviour, enthusiasm and attitude! GO AYDEN!!!
