Day 191: Kids athletics carnival today. My daughter’s first carnival, so nerves were around. She ran her first race 70m and finished the race. The second race 100m felt like slow motion. She ran half way and it was like her feet couldn’t keep up with her body and she started to fall, still in slow motion to the ground. It really hurt her, but she picked herself up and ran to the finish line. I was so proud of her for getting up and holding it together. The tears came later after I found her at the end.
My son went in the discus, shot put and long jump events! Here are some action shots, identities have been blurred to keep officials anonymous.
