It’s time for the fun run!!!!

We’ve been getting ready for our school’s Fun Run for the past two weeks, and it was a beautiful day for it today! Mommy & Ben came to watch us both, and we had an awesome time! We both made it to our goal of 35 laps, and Emily made in just the nick of time!!! Thank you to everyone who sponsored us!

Mommy did a much better job cheering for us than Ben did… he just wanted to play on her phone…

Each class team was announced and we got to run out of the big tunnel! Emily’s class was “Mrs. Ricker’s Rockstar Racers”!

We were allowed to stop for a water break every 5 laps, but I frequented the water table a little more often… Mommy’s surprised I still finished with all the water I had to stop for!

We had different kinds of laps to run… jumping, dancing, slow motion & walk with a friend!

When they announced the race would be over in 2 minutes, and I still had a few laps to go, I got a wind in my sails and ran my little heart out. Mommy was so proud of me, she even ran along  side the track to cheer me on!

I made it! All I kept saying to Mommy was, “I did it! I actually did it!” I have no idea why that made Mommy cry…

After my run, we went inside, and Mommy and Ben stayed to watch Abby race next!

Abigail’s class team was named “Squire’s Slippery Squids”…

Ben wasn’t thrilled having to stay for another race, but he did great!

Everytime we passed the finish line, a teacher marked off a lap on the backs of our shirts so we could keep track!
