so proud

So very proud of this boy. If you were to ask him about Cross Country, he would immediately tell you that he is isn't a long distance runner. He is a sprinter. He wanted to be involved in middle school sports this year. The only sports offered to the 6th graders are Cross Country, Track and Field and Wrestling(which he is not a fan of). He was immediately moved up to Group Two which consists of 7th grade boys and a select few, 6th graders. He participated in his first meet last week. I was so proud watching him pass by on the track. He did great!!







It was fun to cheer him on as he crossed over the finish line. I loved hearing the little boys cheer him on. They were so proud of their big brother. They informed me that they are making signs for next time and that Tanner's name will be on them :-). I asked Tanner what he was most proud of during the race and he replied "not throwing up at the finish line". He watched one of the older boys loose it right before he was to race. He pushed through and made it, without the throw up. That a boy!
