My son H was in our district Junior Olympics today, in two events. Here is a rather tangled and action-packed shot of him pulling ahead in his heat. He eventually came in second in both 50 yard dash and softball throw (which is I guess the peewee version of shot put)...what a thrill! The biggest thrill really was seeing how the kids all cheered for each other, and tried to buck up those who did not place. It was all boys, so you might have expected a little testosterone overload, but although the energy was high and the competition was fierce, the atmosphere was decidedly cheerful. It sounds corny but I was looking around thinking "Valuable life lessons being learned before my very eyes!" Including those being learned by Mom.
