A gorgeous Spring day coupled with the Westbury PS running carnival made for a lovely day. A rare moment when Mums can sit down in the sun and relax and not feel guilty about it.
There were some spills and falls, cheers for the winners, encouragement for the ones bringing up the rear but most of all there was a spirit of participation and getting in and having a go. And of course a quiet pride from a certain Mum when the girls pulled in some firsts - parents are allowed that luxury sometimes aren't they??
Ollie - keep your eye on the finish line!!
Oliver had decided before his race that he was going to come third, and as self-fulfilling prophecies go, third he came. :)
A great posse to be with our picnic lunch to watch the race, sitting with Kerry and Kirsty and catching up over 5hrs rather than quick snatches of conversation at the end of the school day.
Sarra striding to first place in the 100m.
This was the funniest race of all, when the parents, some who have not run for what, 20 years, run with their kids. The Triffitts came a close second in after the Browns.
