Sam and Ethan had their athletics carnival this week. It was a fine day, the grounds not too damp and before I knew it Ethan was running down the track, leading the way and finishing the race with a blue ribbon. They ran the 7 year olds, 70mtr races first, luckily I made it just in time. Even with his hat and jacket on Ethan fought the wind resistance to come first.
Next up was Sam in the 200mtrs, he ran a valiant effort coming 5th. He thought it a strange coincidence that he also came 5th in his 100mtr race. My goodness that boy has mighty fine legs.
Ethan had fun in the novelty races, the egg and spoon, three legged and tunnel ball races. Meanwhile I ran back and forth between Sam's races and Toby playing on a dirt pile with his pre-school buddies and Ethan in the novelty races.
...And we all got to come home early together.
