Tassy's school had their Cross Country event this week. She REALLY didn't want to do it and wanted to have the day off "sick". I said no way, she had to give it a go - "Imagine if the kids who didn't like Maths wanted to stay home sick every time they had Maths! They'd never be at school! Be grateful this is only once a year!". Last year she came last in her age group.
So she finally submitted and went in the race. She was a bit distracted by the fact that they didn't have to wear school uniform but were encouraged to wear house colours. ;) So she chose her very non-athletic looking outfit. It's such a long race. I couldn't do it! She ran and walked, but ran a lot more than I expected. After she finished she said "I think I came fourth!". I had watched the race but had no idea that only three girls had finished (waaaaaaay) before her! LOL. So she qualified to go to the zone carnival! So funny. For someone who didn't want to race at all - she nows gets to do it all again!
