x-country

Yes, it’s that time of year.  Cross Country events are being held in every school just about now – no matter it is also ‘snake season’ – guess that just makes them run faster.

Mac competed (of course), he took his Chariot for the event – goes faster, looks meaner, has space to carry stuff for the other kids if needed…STICKING WITH THE LEADERS

STICKING WITH THE LEADERS

The kindergarten boys raced, one of the Kindy Dad’s offered to push – it was a boys race after all.   

After deciding it probably wouldn’t be fair if he won… Mac and Darren (his legs) stuck with the leader pack and pushed them along a little.

The most fascinating aspect is the kids don’t actually see the wheels, the person pushing, or the surrounding contraption.

On arrival at school the next day I was greeted by the kids excitedly telling me “Mac came second”.  

I was there at Cross Country, I took photos of all the kids, I watched him ‘race’, I cheered them all on… BUT I love that is completely irrelevant to them.

I actually don’t believe he did finish that high up in the placings but what does it matter?  As far as they are concerned…

“Mac came second”
