Today was our schools annual turkey trot.
Every year the winners in each grade get a turkey , well that's how it USED to be.
From what I understand, from the powers that be, the turkey trot, is now a "fun run" with no winners, because it was creating too much competition.
We can't give awards for academic achievement because the kids who aren't as smart will feel bad.
We can't give awards for athletic achievement because the kids who aren't as athletic will feel bad.
I think my boys summed it up this morning...
Tanner - "It's not even a turkey trot anymore, it was the TURKEY trot, because you could win a TURKEY"
Garrett - "This year it's a disappointment trot"
