Family Fun Run

This past Saturday we all got to participate in a family fun run. Each member of the family got to take a turn running and competing. First off, Niel, Me, and Conner ran a 5K (3.2 miles). Niel crossed the finish line in 23 minutes.... he sure is fast! Conner and I finished at 31 minutes. Once again, Conner was one of the only 10 year olds.

Stockton and Garrett ran a 1/2 mile. They both did an excellent job! There were plenty of kids running in these races. Half a mile is a pretty long run for younger kids. Garrett actually took 2nd place in his age group. We are usually trying to keep up at home. He lived up to his reputation! He did such a great job. And Stockton kept right in the race. It was a true joy to watch them both. I was very proud of them!

Even Zander did a little run! His race was 1/4 mile. Grandpa Dean encouraged Zander the entire way.... running right beside him. Zander wanted to give up about half way through, but he was all smiles as he crossed the finish line. It was a very fun morning!!!!

It is wonderful to see all the fun things you do with your kids. We did so many things with ours and now that they are grown I realize you can never do enough with them. I miss those fun times.
