Lexie was in the 4th grade this year and that is the big year when they get to compete in the all city track meet. It was a beautiful day, windy... but what else is new around here?! How did Chicago get the nickname "The Windy City?" I beg to differ. Just sayin.' Ha!
Sully man loved the bleachers and even got away from me three times that day. Made my heart stop a time or two! But have no fear, now I've mastered the five point harness! We got a new stroller and I had to learn to beat the system with this one.
Lexie with her girlfriends. They ran the 4 by 4 together.
The lil' girls were pretty smitten by the big girls!
So glad I found those bright shorts this spring. The girls stick out like a sore thumb! HA!
"Run Girl Run!" Yes, I am that mama...
Waiting for the awards...
Lexie came home with 4 ribbons that day!
2 4th place ribbons and 2 8th place ribbons. - Not bad considering you were running against kids who were an entire year older.
We're having alot of fun with this and are excited to see the girls do well and although I know I sound extrememly competetive at times, we do just want them to have fun and be healthy and this is a good way to instill excercise in their lives from a young age. It's alot easier to keep it up then start later in life that's for sure!
Regionals are next!! DL, here we come!
