Senior Night...

A couple of days ago, Master C.'s Cross-Country Team celebrated Senior Night. This is where all the senior runners get honored by the coach with a speech and flowers and cake and applause. Lots of fun!

It was a very emotional event for everybody involved. (I had already warned the family that bawling might be involved.) But it was not only me who had wet eyes, the coach completely choked up especially when it was Master C.'s turn, which of course didn't help me contain my tears...

It is difficult to stand in front of quite an audience and your coach next to your side being all emotional etc.  but Master C. remained cool and collected throughout the whole speech and I was So Proud!!!  {big smile}

Cross-Country season isn't quite over yet. We have some big championships coming up in the next two or three weeks and everybody is improving every single race. Great team, great coach and great parents: what more can you ask for?!  <wink>
