I'm a few hours behind on this one, but I'll get it on anyway. Actually I'm writing from my iPhone.
Yesterday was the District Cross Country Meet at Trout Lake. Almost 2000 kids from K-7 race around the lake in distances that, for some, are challenging. This is always an exciting meet with so many people in attendance and the weather couldn't have been any better.
There were some great performances by a lot of students, including my own school. But I'm going to be a little selfish and say how proud I am of my daughter for finishing third amongst the Grade 2's. It was an incredible feeling to see her come around the corner amongst the lead group. Once she passed me, I ran to the finish line to congratulate her. Incredible finish!
This and other activities wouldn't be possible without the generous time that teachers and volunteers give up. Thank you! These are the type of experiences that kids remember.
