The Turkey Trot is a highlight for our boys every year. And they left this year telling me it might have been the best day ever so I'd say it was a HUGE success. Thanks for all the pictures Ang!!
We started off with a presentation from Stacey's first grade class of the Thanksgiving story - precious and perfect!!
Then we headed into the fellowship hall for some bible verses recited by memory and Thanksgiving songs. Stacey III would never admit it, but I think he actually likes music.
Then we enjoyed lunch together before heading to the actual trot.
Nannie had my babies and oh what a treat to get to just sit and watch instead of juggling the Cs.
This duo is just too sweet for words. Ally & Wyatt
As do we, obviously. ;) Stacey had to "run" back to work while we cheered on our runners.
Stacey III finishing his race...with his Mom watching quietly from the sideline...hehe can't help myself.
A few other cheerleaders cheering him on.
He finished in 5th place (in the whole school!!) and first place in his division. I can't explain how proud I feel when the boys cross the finish line!! And not because they are amazing runners, which they are, but it just makes me so proud to see them trying their best and giving it their all. Proud Mommy moment!!
They get a Turkey Trot token at the finish line, which lots of kids wear on their backpacks, and Wyatt was SUPER excited to get his first one!!
Phew, these guys were worn out!!
