For once, I’m thrilled! My son came home two weeks ago and related to me that during his PE class that while running, he came in dead last; however, the rest of the class cheered him on that HE COULD DO IT! WOW! In a day and age when it is typical for kids to make fun of those who can’t, this class pulled together to cheer on the last man in.
Today, my son came in from school and told me he did the 1/2 mile run and next week, he’d be pushing for the full mile. He is not a runner; but he is trying and succeeding at what he’s never been able to do before. It is milestones like this that I want to remember.
Tomorrow, it’s a sleep over with two friends and a taco dinner.
