Today Joshua finishes grade 3. He was terribly excited this morning. Quite a few weeks off follow. He has done very well on the sporting field this year, winning the Cross Country, getting selected for the High Performance Athletic Team at his school, winning the 100m, long jump and discus. Ending up with overall Age Champion for athletics.

Also, the academic side wasnt too bad either, strong at maths and science, but looking to improve in english and the other fuzzier disciplines.

Apart from endlessly annoying his younger sisters (and continuously blaming them), he has been a good boy this year, warm and caring, but with a short fuse. I wouldnt have him any other way.

Love you Josh - Dad.

State level Cross Country placegetter again!

Joshua competed in the 2010 Qld All Schools Cross Country championships (Qld athletics and Qld Running combined) at St Pauls School, Bald Hills last weekend. He competed in the 7yo comp.

Because he had came 2nd last year at this championship event, over the loudspeaker came the news "Joshua Hendry is back this year, he will be the one to watch after coming second here last year"...

After a horror start, where he was about 40th out of 60, he worked his way through the field into 4th or 5th, and then in the hill climb with 150m to go he moved int 3rd then 2nd. He didnt have enough petrol to catch 1st place but finished with a very impressive 2nd. Dad was bursting with pride.

No state teams are formed to race at the nationals until grade 4 though - darn.

Josh ran his first cross country race on Saturday, and enjoyed it thoroughly, but after leading all the way, was upset to be pipped at the post by a better runner. Results:

We went camping!

We went camping to Bigriggen, and I got two ticks, but I was very brave when mum and dad took them out.

I had a great fun time last weekend, when my friends came over and stayed in my brand new tent. Dad and I set it up in the back yard on the grass, and we have a fun time. Heres some pics.
