All year long, this boy sits at soccer games, swim meets and dance recitals. Today, it was his turn.
First up, track and field. He was nervous as he stepped up to that 15 meter line. Yes, 15 meters. He’s 5 years old and has an 11 inch inseam, 15 meters is quite the race.
He had the largest cheering section in the land in the stands waiting for him to start.
He won. He ran as hard as he could and then fell across the finish line. He won though. And, oh my gosh, the kids went WILD. They were so excited to see him win something.
It was his turn.
After that, it was on to the discus (frisbee) throw, and then the shot-put (tennis ball) throw.
Then in the afternoon, it was time for swimming. He was nervous here too.
He listened so carefully to the instructions.
And then, he was off like a rocket. Joe swam along with him, and he is allowed to use a kick board. He did GREAT.
We’re waiting for those results to come in, but it doesn’t really matter.
We were all there to cheer him on, in his moment. He is so very proud.
–FullPlateMom, who is so very proud too.
