We have another happy runner in the family.
My little kindergartener had his first race on Monday -- the school-wide Great Pumpkin Race.
(I dressed him accordingly. Because, yes, I am that mom. Hey, he didn't complain!)
Anyway, the race was fun and my little guy ran hard and with determination -- and he finished in third place for the kindergarteners! He was super excited because although all the runners received pumpkins at the end, the first, second and third place winners all got a BIG pumpkin. He really wanted a big pumpkin!

So, it appears I'm no longer the lone racer in Happy Runnerville. And I'm sure it is only a matter of time before I'm no longer the faster runner, either. My little guy will be leaving me in the dust in time! His school has a running club that starts in third grade and I admit that I can't wait for him to be part of it. I want to encourage this running thing. Surprise, surprise . . .
Thanks for stopping by!
