Well, we've just spent the past two days at the Zone Athletics Carnival for Little A's. Thankfully, it was at the Narrabeen Academy of Sport (our home track), and not to far for travelling ! It was however, VERY HOT !!! So much so, that I have sunburn everywhere, except where my clothes and sunglasses were - NOT GOOD !!! Suncream and a hat, just didn't seem to cut it. But now, on to the most exciting news... Over the two days, Jacob competed in 4 events. He was in the 200m, 50m, 500m pack start, and the long jump. He placed 4th overall in the 50m (there must have been mm's in it), and after a long hard slog at all the running events, he placed in the top 8 for the long jump (the winner jumped an amazing 3.23m, so Jacob probably wasn't in the running any way LOL), so I am saving the best news till last: These photo's show how Jacob performed in the 200m and the 500m........that's right GOLD! GOLD! GOLD! Jacob came first in the 200m and 500m pack start! I have edited the photos to protect the other children, so sorry about the frogs, but better to be safe than sorry!
We are soooooooooooooooooooooo proud of him!!!!!!!!! He did everything right, and he's been a great sport about it all too. He's already looking forward to next year, and as he said to me, more than once " Mum, I Love the Zone !" I think he might already be in it LOL !!!
