Today was the cross country for the early childhood classes, at school. Harri was so excited to go in it. Last night at tea he kept saying 'I'm going to win!' and of course we told him it didn't matter if he won or lost, but to try his hardest and have fun (but of course we were secretly hoping that he may be the sporty one in the family and do well!;).
He was so excited when he saw us and gave us a big smile and wave as he went over to the starting line.
They were so cute to watch. They just kept looking at each other as they ran with the biggest smiles on their faces.
He actually surprised us and did really well. We thought he was going to run out of puff about three quarters of the way around the oval, but kept ahead of the main pack.
He ended up coming third and was so proud of himself. His good friend, Sarah came first and the whole school was cheering her on. When I went over to see him after the race he was so happy and said 'I didn't lose!!'. It was like he surprised himself!
One of Noah's teachers is in love with Kobe. Whenever we see her she steals him and says she is going to take him home. I told her she could've had him last night as he was up half the night crying! She told me that if she did have him then he would've been happy and wouldn't have been up half the night! She is very funny.
We were going to stay to watch Noah 'run' (or Di run!), but he was asleep, so there was no use taking him in it. It's lovely seeing the kids with him. They are always holding his hands or rubbing his head.
Di said he wasn't having a very happy day - I think he is still getting over Alison trying to convert him to the Bombers when she came on Tuesday.
