What an awesome day we had at the cross country running event! It was glorious weather for running and the kids all gave their best effort! I was so proud of how they cheered one another on at the finish line. GCS definitely had the most school spirit there!
Here are a few photos of the day with some comments included. (The class should be horrified by the fact that most of the following comments are in the form of sentence fragments, which we have learned is a big “no no” in writing. 😛 )

Always listen to Mrs. Laird!
You can always count on Sarah to have her arms wrapped around someone!
Josh coming down the homestretch. He ran hard and came in 36th place!

I can’t recall everyone’s position when all was said and done, but I do want to make a special mention of our top girl Christy who came in ninth place overall in the pre-novice division. She’ll be heading to provincials this year. Way to go, Christy! Check out her concentration as she pulled ahead of one of the girls just before the finish line.
Still smiling after a long race!
Altogether it was a great day! Be proud of your kids!
