Like His Momma

On Saturday, my oldest boy made his Momma so proud.

I mean, he does this regularly, but Saturday morning was Districts for Cross Country!  And boy, did Tyler SHOW UP. 

Cross Country Districts is held on a golf course, and is a TOUGH run.  The boys’ meet was first, followed by the girls’. 

And they’re off!IMG_0257

 

Jack and my Dad walked around and saw Tyler at different points on the course and were calling me telling me how he was doing.  I was waiting at the finish line.IMG_0275

 

The last tenth of the course finishes uphill…and my boy gutted it out at a dead sprint to finish in 18:58!!!IMG_0282

And he took 7th place and QUALIFIED FOR STATE!!!!!  The state meet is this weekend in Jeff City and he’s going!!!!IMG_0260

 

I am so stinkin’ proud of this kid!!!  And I’m telling him that as I’m kissing him and probably embarrassing him.  I also have my iPhone in hand so I can text everybody I know to tell them how well he did! Smile
