Carter won first place in the jumprope contest at school today for first grade. He jumped for 2 minutes and 5 seconds. He said everyone was calling his name and cheering for him.
I'm very happy for him. This morning as they were leaving for school, I noticed his pants were half falling down around his waist. I wasn't very happy that he was dressing for school that way, especially when he knew about this jumping contest, but I didn't realize it until he was leaving for the bus.
When he came home today, I asked him how his pants were while he was jumping. He said he made his belly "full" and jumped so his pants wouldn't fall down! I guess it worked!
