Okay, major proud parent moment last Friday when my child, Kyle Koch, in the 5th grade actually blew away the ENTIRE SCHOOL in the Fun Run this year!!! I cannot tell you how absolutely amazed I am at this amazingly fast runner I have born! The 6th graders got to start first and then the 5th graders about 2 minutes later and so we were all at the finish line waiting for the first 6th grader to come in when, low and behold, there was MY 5th grader leading the pack with his teacher's husband by A LOT!!! Can you even see anyone else in the background? I could hardly believe it!! AND, just to add to my amazement, he was SICK!! He woke up with a horrible cough, sore throat, headache, and stuffed up nose. He asked me if he could walk the Fun Run since he felt so bad. My very sympathetic self said "NO WAY, BUDDY, You Run and Do Your Best!" And he did - even better than his best. I did drug him up with Ibuprofen and nasal spray. I wonder what he would have done if he was feeling well? As he passed the 6th graders, they yelled at him, "Hey, what grade you in?" I am surprised someone didn't trip him - how annoying to be beat by a 5th grader! I am so proud of my son - he is amazing. I pray this talent will pay for his college someday. If not, what a great skill to have all his life!
Ok, I have resigned myself to the fact that there are 5 boys in my family and sometimes I will be forced to do things that only boys find fun and exciting. This is obviously one of those times. How did we spend Memorial Day? Learning to shoot guns - YUCK! But the "boys" had a blast!!!
