The kids have started their new school year and as always they run in the Cross Country meet at Hiawatha Park. It is just gorgeous there this time of year and this year we were blessed with a most spectacular day. Both kids did very well and what I was most pleased to see was their character. They cheered each team mate to the end and many other runners that they could see were frustrated or feeling defeated. When their sibling was struggling to do that sprint at the end of the race they both ran to the end with the other and cheered words of encouragement. Moo came across almost in tears from a cramp and Bean ran beside her until the end and caught her as she collapsed in pain at the end. When I got to her, he was holding her and telling her what a great race she ran and how proud he was of her for running through the pain and finishing still in fourth place! When it came to his turn she did the same with him and he had his best finish ever. He finished in 3rd place and she was telling him how proud she was that he had worked so hard and done so well. I was a proud Mamma that day! Nothing makes me happier than seeing my little ones love and encourage each other.
In an interesting turn of events I was contacted to do a product review for a scrap booking company and they have also offered a give away so I will be working through the details of that and post about it soon!
Nice to see you all again!
