Correra Loca (Fun Run)
James was able to raise $50 all on his own! The goal was $25 per student, so he was a Rock Star! He actually did great putting the donated money in the big envelope. There was no temptation to keep the money. I was very proud of him.
So it was a cold, rainy day. BOO! We stood with the other parents and waited.
Finally, the kindergarteners marched out. We see James! I held my sign for James to see.
If you missed it, Mr. Larson said that they raised $5,800 for the school!
So the kids took off and most of the parents jogged over to the other side of the field, straight across the grass. Jim and I trotted over and took more video.
And then the finish line...
James was visibly exhausted, huffing and puffing. I think that's the longest he's ever ran!
On the way to the bathroom he asked me what the signs said. I told him and he told me that he has the best Mom and Dad in the world!
And when we got back we joined up with Jim (Dad) again and we congratulated James some more.
His friend George found us and brought James to his Mom to introduce him.
He said, "Mom, this is my friend James!" She told us that she has been hearing about James all week. Likewise! James has been talking about George and Pokemon (later blog entry).
