every year the boy's school has a spring run off. every grade level runs throughout their entire recess all week. the run has individual grade level competitions and classroom competitions. keagan and kinkade won last year in first grade and won again this year with one of their best friends. all three tied in number of laps total for the week. they were thrilled and so proud.
the boys had been nervous leading up to the the spring run off, so i told them they do not have to win. . just run for fun. kinkade responded, "it is not fun if you do not win."
