DANG SKIPPY...


The BOY can RUN......(BTW, He gets it from his MOM),
Rayce...SMOKED em' at the Hershey track meet today! It's a track meet where all the local grade schools compete. He won 1st in all his heats then went on to win 2 of the 3 and the 3rd he was 2nd place.
But the best moment of all was the very last race of the day, he was in the relay and he was chose to run the last leg of the heat. His school was in last place...then Rayce took the baton and I swear it was like fire started coming off his shoes...His whole school started cheering so loud and SCREAMING his name...And he DID IT!! He came from last to winning the race for his school! His classmates picked him up and carried him around chanting his name over and over!
And then you saw this look on his face....
OH, too see that look in your child's eye of accomplishment...there is NOTHING better as a parent to see THAT look, NOTHING can touch it...NADA!
IT'S BETTER THAN A MILLION BUCKS BABY!
Of-course , I didn't get any pics of the relay race (too tired by that time and didn't have a clue that was gonna happen!!!) ..I am hoping his teacher did!!
