I'll admit that it took a long time for me to figure out why "X-country" meant "cross country," but I've got it now.
So when Addison brought home a paper about joining the cross country team, I was thrilled! I was feeling a little guilty about not having signed him up for soccer or T-ball or some other extra-curricular activity, and now here it was: one hour practices after school (requires no extra driving), 2 meets at the local park, and best of all? FREE!
Addison and 2 first grade friends before their first meet!

Out of about 35-40 first graders, Addison took 13th place! He would have done even better than that if he wouldn't have stopped 20 feet away from the finish line to wave at his mom who was video taping! GOOD JOB ADDISON!! We are proud of you!

No wonder all the Spokane high schools kicked everybody else's tails in Cross Country!!! They start 'em all in the first grade!

the distance between the kids does not put distance between their interests!! My last blog was about running too!! We are super proud of Addy! Way to run, buddy!
