Today Catherine completed her first quarter mile around the track! She employed the run-walk method, alternating between sprints and wandering around slowly. Sensibly, Elisabeth remained in the double jogstroller pace car for an optimal spectator viewpoint. Catherine did fall down once, but there were only minimal track abrasions and NO CRYING whatsoever. Mom regrets that she failed to time the lap. After the end of Catherine's magnificent lap, she managed to summon the energy to sprint outside the track area fence and into the grass, following a rabbit that attracted her attention. He got away but only by the slimmest of whiskers.
The girls celebrate their second birthday next week on June 1st. We'll probably also celebrate their "Due Date Birthday", August 20th, this year again too.
