National Junior Olympic Cross Country Meet

Sassy is the littlest one in this picture.

Sassy earned the opportunity to run in the National Junior Olympic Cross Country Championships. Her 8 and under girls team came in first in the state and first in the region to qualify for nationals.

This week I sent her off with one of the other cross country families to go to Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was so hard to let her go, but there was no way we could afford for me to go with her and there was no way I could tell her that she couldn't go.

Even though she didn't race as well as she had hoped, I am extremely proud of her for making it to nationals. I'm also proud of her for going across the country "by herself" (without me or hubby). She has made memories this week that will stay with her forever.
