Wonder Boy

Jake posted this on myfamily.com
I don't know if Mikala mentioned this anywhere else as I am pretty far behind, but last week I got off the plane and went directly to a neighborhood park to witness something pretty crazy.

Elston's entire elementary school was "competing" against the local Flemish school in a run to promote fitness. Anyway, they were doing kilometer-long laps around this lake for sixty minutes. Elston was really running fast. Then at the end, I went over to congratulate him and all of his classmates were exclaiming "Elston a gagné!" or "Elston won the race!" I don't know that he won out of all the grades, but his teacher showed me that he in fact ran 10 kilometers in one hour, more than any first grader from either school. 10K in an hour is a very tough accomplishment for daddies, much less a six-year-old boy. I was quite amazed.
I'll post a picture and more later.........
I'm so proud of our little guy!
