So, we ran into a little glitch when we took K in to get her sports physical so that she could run in cross country. A little glitch that has lasted for just over 6 weeks. 6 weeks of practice that she could not participate in. 6 weeks of training that she missed out on.
We had 6 weeks of waiting and K standing in as "manager" of the team....and manager she was. She kept those kids in line, she kept them hydrated, and she kept them pushing on.....oh yeah, and she got to ride in the little golf cart. Who wouldnt love that.
Thursday we received the call of good news. They were finally willing to clear her physical and she could run! This was cause for a celebration in these here parts! Of course, she was at school when the good news came in. So, when she got home I told her there was something waiting on the counter for her.
Was she ever excited.
This evening then, we had to go in search of some sneakers. Running sneakers. Super fast sneakers. Crazy fast sneakers.....
But of course, you cant go in a shoe store with 2 tween girls(okay, really with anyone) (okay, maybe not your husband) and just look at what you are after, right? I mean, cmon, we ARE talking about shoes here. Who doesnt love shoes? (Did I mention that we went out after sneakers? Crazy fast sneakers?)(Cuz I dont believe I got even one shot of her sneakers. Her super fast sneakers.)
