Enter middle school – the boy wants to play a sport. He chooses Cross Country.
By the skin of our teeth we got him in for a physical in time…and he started the same day (two Monday’s ago).
Thursday he was in his first meet. I was so proud of him! I’ve never had a good stamina for running, and I envy his persistence at it. They run almost 2 miles in middle school meets – and the kid forgot his inhaler!
But he did it!
Not only did he run the full length of the meet looking just a bit winded at the end – he came in 20th place AND beat his best time by over 2 minutes!
Yup. that’s my boy.
It’s the eyes. The kid has melt-worthy blue eyes. I’m in SO much trouble now that he’s noticing girls.
Oy, the headaches of a near-teen.
So yes…a VERY proud Mama ready for the next meet!!
