For the first time ever, I had to miss the first hour of events. Of course, in this time both Faith and Levi ran victoriously and my phone was pinging and dinging as my friends gave me blow by blow accounts...accompanied by photos! Good friends hey?
I won't tell you I wasn't gutted. HOW ON EARTH did it happen that I could miss his first sports day? Argh, horrible.
Thankfully, the boy that he is, is not deterred by my absence and not once has he even mentioned it.

By the time I arrived, rain had delayed sports and all the kids were transported back to school to finish the team events in the hall. Thankfully the dreaded parent races have been replaced by a mixed team (moms and dads) relay - which we won for the Green team. I was dreading the moms race as my kids EXPECT me to win each year and I just did not feel like running this year.
I had to laugh when we came home and he was sticking his Gold (firsts) stickers in his book and he remarks :
"Next year I need to make sure I come in first, second and third so I can get gold, silver and bronze"
Truly in it for the fun and not necessarily the win.
