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.
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”
