Busy Bees!! ...well, people!

We have been crazy busy!

Trying to get everything together for the move.

This is not a complaint...AT ALL!!!

I am merely stating a fact!!!! :)

All summer Geordie has been talking about 'running a race' so we found a children's race for him. He did it this weekend. The US 10K Classic;

It was 0.5K (0.31 miles). There were 5 races for children and they were broken up by age, Geordie's race was for 5 & 6 year olds. Parents were allowed to run with the children, so Callum did. To be honest, I was more afraid for Callum running it than Geordie.

Look under the ( d's ) you will find Callum & Geordie

When the race started Callum was running behind Geordie but Geordie kept turning around to see where he was. So Callum quickly changed his strategy and moved in front of him;

Look at that form... and that hair...

Both 'boys' ran the whole race. I had told them both it's perfectly fine if you need to stop and walk. They had paced themselves well and did a lot of passing down the 'backstretch'. By the time Geordie thought about walking he could see the finish line.

If you ask Geordie he thinks that he came in second. The first 10 girls and first 10 boys receive a medal.

We just know that he was in the top 10 for boys and his time was somewhere around 3 minutes and 23 seconds;

...take note of the 'cheese smile'

The proud parents and the tired of pictures Geordie!

**update; Callum slept well that night! ;)

That looks like lots of fun. My boys are doing a 1K family run on Thanksgiving. I can't wait. Training starts now :)

Way to go, little man! Big man, too. It's nice to see a picture of you, Helen. We have been trying to find a race for the twins to run as they both seem to have their Daddy's talent. Jacob recently ran a race with his class. I asked him who came behind him and he said, "I don't know. I couldn't look because I was afraid that I would lose speed if I turned my head." The testosterone runs deep.

Phew! I almost fell out of my chair when I read he was running a Kids' 10k race. I'm much relieved to hear it was in multiples of .5
