This was Zack's first cross country race. He skied in elementary school and liked it, so he decided to try it competitively in middle school. I loved that I got to be there to cheer him on.
I asked if he saw me in the crowd, to which he replied, "I heard you--Everyone heard you."
"Oh, come on, Zack," I said--"Lots of folks were cheering."
"No, just you."
"No, you just heard me because I'm your Mom."
"Well, no offense, Mom, but you really don't need to come to any more of my races."
I have successfully embarrassed my 7th grader! My work here is nearly done!
