New Sports Endeavors

Tim and Topher have decided to officially join organized sporting ventures this year. Topher has chosen Cross Country Running.  Here he is before his first 3K
When they came aroung the halfway point, he was up there with the 5K runners.  Here he is crossing the finish line.
 This is after.  He poured his water all over himself.  He came in 2nd out of his team.  There are about 15 kids on the team.  He also came in 3rd over all out of the Bantams.  That's about 20-25 kids.  Not too bad!
 Tim has chosen basketball.  I am glad because he plays at the house EVERYDAY.  I think he's worn out about 5 basketballs in the last two years!
 Here they are practicing before the game. 
 He is learning a lot of things and seems to be a natural.
 I am glad they have decided to get involved.  Tim tells me he wants to sign up for another team.  Topher says he wants to try basketball in addition to his running.
