Today was the last day of our homeschool co-op for this year. Last Tuesday and today the kids have been doing the Presidential Physical Fitness test. They could do all the stations last week except the big run, and then we had a picnic at a park today where they could try any stations again to better their score as well as run the run. Nathan came home last week saying that he was short only in the shuttle run for qualifying as a Presidential winner in the stations they had done, and he ran it several times today to shave off that last hundredth of a second to qualify! Luke wasn't really interested in bettering his scores, which I think are good enough for the National level, so he didn't do anything except the run today. Isn't that funny? Just when you think you have your kids' personalities pegged, they change things up on you!
Both boys chose to run the mile instead of the half mile, which was surprising to me. Nathan ran his mile in 8:20, and Luke ran his in 8:56. That's pretty awesome, isn't it?! Better than my (non-pregnant) time, I'm sure, LOL. And Nathan's time was indeed good enough to qualify him for Presidential. Yay!
