A couple of weeks ago, our school held its annual Fun Run! This is a day that the kiddos look forward to. They get to hang out outside and enjoy the fresh air and get a bit of exercise! Nena is just excited that she can hang out outside with her girly friends.
Bear did AWESOME!!!!!! He is quite the little runner! I think that he is the cutest little kiddo! When he runs around the house or while playing he looks like a running quail and he always makes me chuckle. However, he kicked it in on this run and booked it.
Dad showed up part way through the race and caught up to Bear and ran with him. Bear took second place in his division! Way to go Buddy!!!!! Definitely got those genes from his dad.
Of course, Bear’s favorite part of the entire thing was the fact that he got a popsicle! How much better does it get than a day at school where you spend the whole time outside and get a popsicle!
Nena LOVED this race. Last year she booked it and won a ribbon for finishing 6th in her division. This year, I forgot to take her asthma inhaler to the school (bad bad mom) and she was just excited to finish the race. She still did pretty dang well considering she had to slow down a touch.
The kiddos were so extremely supportive of each other. Bear’s race finished first and he sat and cheered for his sister as she ran passed and crossed the finish line. I still am so amazed at how good of friends my kiddos are.
Nena and her great friend! They both have dads that run competitively so maybe someday, these two will be running marathons together. I still think that I will be sitting on the sidelines cheering them on instead of running with them!
