This morning the kids had their Cross Country races at school. We stayed and cheered on.
The Year 1 classes ran one lap around the football field, and Lucas came 4th in his year group! Not bad at all, although he broke down in tears afterward because he wanted to win... bless...
The Kindy kids ran a special route around the playground (quite long though!), but Linnea didn't run it all by herself. She set off in high spirit and full power, but halfway through apparently she got pissed off and just stopped. I didn't see it, but Jeremy had to pick her up, and she had told him "Everybody just keeps passing me!". Then her and I ran the last bit together.
They all got little ribbons upon completing, and very proudly set off back to their classrooms for some Halloween celebrations.
