Both kids are involved in Cross Country through the school this year. It has really made life a lot less stressful having them both in the same sport. I felt bad because I knew Jack really wanted to play soccer. Last year was too hard with both sports having their meets/games at the same time. So, I encouraged Cross Country.
The program is such a wonderful program for kids. It really teaches them the spirit of being part of a team. I love it. The kids do such a great job cheering each other on for every race. The older kids work with the younger kids. It is just a fantastic program.
This past week we had a "mini-meet" on Thursday and our first big meet on Saturday. Jack had been sick, so I wasn't sure about the mini meet, but he went out and ran like a trooper. Madie also did a great job--she's getting the hang out of running super fast at the end and passing some kids along the way.
Lots of fun for all!
