I'm Not Cut Out for Competition

One of the reasons we wanted to live in this neighborhood was for all the activities for families. Last Saturday there was a race for the kids put on by Run4ACause. I'm pretty sure it's an annual race, and if so, my boys will want to run it annually. They are hooked. I, on the other hand, have some toughening up to do. I do not like the thought of my children working really hard and suffering disappointment. Life, I know, but like I said, I've got to work up some thicker skin before we put them in really competitive activities.

Susanna rooting her brothers on.
Judah's big finish. 
(Please close your ears to the shrill voice in the background. It was my nerves.)
 He got first place in the 4 year old boys group.
 They each won a coffee mug. They were thrilled and have already had several rounds of hot chocolate.
Luke and Eli waiting for their turn.
Their big finish. They both got 3rd in their age groups.
(The shrill voice in the background has gone up about two octaves. It's almost unbearable. You may want to turn your volume down.)
I'm so proud of my boys. They didn't quit when they were behind and really winded. And they weren't nearly as nervous as their mama.

Thanks, Lauren. I wish I could take credit, but like everything else about them, they are all Kris.

Probably is a good thing, Kristy. :) Maybe it's your browser? It worked for me, but I don't know...
