After training for at least a month today (Oct. 27th) was Nasir's BIG DAY. It was time for the Marine Corps Healthy Kids Fun Run. My son has wanted to do a race of his own since his Dad did the Warrior Dash, Spartan Race and Tough Mudder this year. Dad heard his cry and signed him up for a 1 mile race.
Even though the temperature outside reads 80 degrees it still feels. In years past the family would go to Cox Farm in Virginia for a little fall fun. This year I made huge plans to go to this really nice Farm in VA with my girlfriend, her children, my children and my nieces. It was going to be a good time. Unfortunately, we weren't able to do that because my son has had a lapse in behavior judgment. Second grade is so stressful... Since I'd invited my nieces we had to do something. So I opted to go to a local farm; I'd heard about here in MD. The farm was just okay; it is very small and doesn't have a lot going on. The other farm we are familiar with was huge with a lot going on. Since my son had gotten in trouble in school it was just what the doctor ordered. He should thank his cousins honestly. Either way, I wanted the kids to have a good time and I believe they did. This was Nori's first time going to a farm of any kind so it had to be special.
