Wordless Wednesday: Run Dash Run!


The long-awaited day dawns sunny and clear - Senior School Cross Country.
Dash is hoping for a Top-Ten finish, so he can go to Inter-School competitions...
In training he was the fastest in his class.




They're off! Mummy is so excited she can't focus the camera. Gah.
A longer course, a bigger field of runners...


The drooping shoulders say it all.



Of course he's disappointed. I wait for a storm of tears... which doesn't come. Instead...


My boy is growing up.

I think Dash and Little Man would be fast friends. Have I mentioned that he loves to run? Just yesterday he was out having me time his mile. lol. And he is obssessed with soccer.

Always love stopping by. I love your inspirational posts, your fun collages, and your perspective as a photographer. And that last photos is my fav! Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love when a sequence of photos tells a story, and I especially love the collage one, could you share what program you used to create it?

All of your pictures are absolutely beautiful- and the finishing touches you put on there is the icing on the cake.

Really nice work!
