On the run again
Conor's first time participating in the big pond of an inter-school cross country. Probably a bit overwhelming for him, but great to be there and giving it a go. Note to self: just got to keep giving it a go....
Children's emotions are so intense, their hearts so often on their sleeve as they learn to process all that they are experiencing. Heartbreak is real heartbreak with pain intensely felt. Joy is a whole-body experience that has them literally leaping - sometimes only five minutes after the heartbreak.
Some days, I feel my emotions are just as intense. So much older than my small boy, but a lot to process at the moment.
One step at a time.
