Run, Billy, Run!

Billy is in track right now and doing great! He is running the 100 m the 1oo m Hurdles, the 400m and the 800m. He is doing really well and enjoying it. It can sometimes take a long time for his heat, especially when there are 5-8 heats for the 100m and 100m hurdles. Still, it's so fun to watch him and cheer him on. He is a great kid!! Last Friday we got to watch him in Whitefish--it was a nice day, too and I came home with some pink arms. We got there just as the 100m dash was beginning so we didn't get to talk to Billy before he raced. We weren't sure when he was racing, either, or what he was wearing, aside from the green and orange track top. You know your son is changing and growing when you look down the track and go 'I think that might be him! No, it can't be--Oh wait, it is him!!' He looked taller and older than both Jim and I thought until we saw him close up. He is growing and changing so fast from a boy to a young man. It is a great honor and privilege to be able to watch him develop into a wonderful young man~~Run, Billy, Run!!
