Nic has been talking about a kid named Casey. I finally met Casey today.
There is a running contest at school to encourage the kids to run laps in the morning before the bell rings. Each lap they complete is scanned on their student ID card for tracking purposes. Each day, their completed laps are accumulated. By the end of x weeks, the top 3 kids will win Amazon gift cards (first place = $75; second place = $50, third place = $25). When Nic told us that he was going to really try, we told him if he placed, we would match the prize $!! Boy, was he motivated!
Contest is still going....but Nic is currently in 2nd place!! The first place kid is untouchable, ahead of Nic by at least 5 miles. All he talks about is how awesome this Casey kid is. Casey is on a track team, plays baseball, soccer, etc.
Today, Nic's soccer team played Casey's team....and Casey, indeed, was amazing on the soccer field.
