Receiving his first medal. First in his age group (ok he was the only one, but he did finish 7th out of about 35 in 9:05).

This has been a busy week for Boyd. Boyd began his first organized sport (Wrestling) which was Monday and Wednesday. He listened very well and is really working on getting some of the step by step fundamentals. Thursday Boyd's school ran their boosterthon fun run. I was able to volunteer and I was really impressed by all the kindergarteners. They worked really hard to get as many laps as they could (up to 35). They were inspiring and Boyd was no exception. Today (Saturday) Boyd ran the Leaping Leaves 1 mile run. He'd been asking to run a race and the Stafford Parks and Rec Department held this wonderful event in a park in Fredericksburg. It was basically a kids (ages 5-13) one mile cross country race. Adam and I were so proud of Boyd's effort and the best part was that he loved it so much. At the awards ceremony he told the race director, "Thank you, we'll see you next year." His favorite part was when they ran through the woods away from all the spectators. He said he passed people there.
