Lucky for Mickey--his life-long dream has been fulfilled!!!
As I mentioned in our previous post, our weekend was filled with fun events at our little town's yearly celebration. One of the events was a children's bike race. Mickey's chain fell off right before the race began. Luckily Mickey's dad was on hand!
Crossing the finish line!
The awards ceremony!
Darling! Love our small town and all of its fun stuff.
A few hours after the bike race, Mickey competed in a pedal tractor pull. Even though he was disappointed that he did not get a full pull, or a trophy, he had a great attitude and cheered his opponents on with gusto! This was a departure from his previous response at a previous pedal tractor pull. (see here)
I realized at the end of the day that we had been gushing over his bike race, totally going against what we had been preaching, (its not about the winning, its the attitude) So I took a moment to make it right--and told him that I was more proud of his attitude accomplishment, than him getting a trophy. "Having a good heart that pleases God is more important than winning!" He was a double winner that day and we are so proud of our little guy!
