This year the Puyallup School District again held its elementary school track meet. With Daniel off to junior high school, David was the only Averill participating. He ran in the 4×100 relay and also the 800 meter. These events are always tremendous fun – not so much for what happens in the races, but mainly for the interactions with all the kids. And David is so very social that he is an absolute blast to watch all day.
After David ran the 800 (video below), he was speaking with the superintendent, who later shared with me that he got a kick out of his conversation with David because, while they were talking there was a line of junior high girls at the fence saying, “Hi David” and pretty much insisting on getting his attention. It seems everybody knows this kid!
