Sunday was a lot of fun; we had our OMRR picnic. They had it catered with some really good BBQ. They also had a raffle. (We won two shirts!) They also had a fun run. You guessed your time and the closest to their time won. Micah said he wanted to do it. It was a mile run and pretty much everyone got a medal. It was in the middle of the day and HOT. Micah got about a half mile into it and and said he had enough. He cried and screamed the rest of the way in. It was very embarrassing, but we wanted to make sure he finished something he started. So we crossed the finish line, tears and all. That is when he realized everyone was watching him and chuckling. He turned bright red and sprinted off and hid behind a tree and started crying. He didn't even wait to get his medal. I picked it up for him and walked over and gave him a hug. I told him good job and that I was proud he finished the race. I then showed him his medal. It was like nothing happened. He put that thing on and showed it to everyone. He even posed for a photo. (Thanks, Shannon!) He also got third place on the timed portion for guessing so close to his time.

This morning, I woke up ready to go run. I was getting off the freeway, and lighting struck a building right next to my route. So needless to say, I ran inside. I forgot how much I didn't like it. I get so bored and really start thinking about the miles and not the run. I do not know how people do it everyday.
It is Monday... I hope everyone has a great day!
Has your kid ever had a meltdown in front of a group of people? How did you handle it?
