{Wordless Wednesday} One of the Best Things About Cheering on my XC Runner

This is all going to sound quite selfish. I don't mean it to be, but I'm afraid it will sound that way.  Not my intent.

  I love that Ben runs cross country.  He has found a sport that challenges him.  We have had a very positive experience integrating with our town's high school team and the kids.  I'm grateful we live in a state where home educated students can readily participate in sports;  I've got two more boys who are up-and-coming Red Raiders.   

I love cheering for him!  I enjoy seeing the team's -- um-- unique chants and other ways of supporting one another.  I love seeing the boy's team run around the course cheering on the girls.

And, I love those warm fall days, standing around waiting to get a glimpse of my son working hard.  I enjoy finding a good spot along the course to cheer on the team.

Last week, we found a great spot to glimpse the kids running around this horseshoe pond. Ben made a PR time on this 5K course!

Doesn't this look so tranquil?  The pond is located on the campus of one of the community colleges.  I think this is the best photo I've ever taken with my iPhone!  Not bad for the ole iPhone 4, eh?
