Momma Braggin' Time!

Well we have had a few busy weeks (I know... you act so surprised! ha!)...anywho...

We have been finishing up track season around here and I just wanted to take a sec to brag on the kiddos a bit, so bear with me... then I promise to show some craftiness! :)

Morgan (my freshman) has been running JV track all season and kicking some bootay and usually medaling each meet (1st, 2nd, or 3rd).. in the 3200m and the mile... well last week they moved him up to the VARSITY to run... he was telling me "Mom I am SO gonna get killed up there!"... I just said as long as you are doing your best and beating your time you can't really do too much better! Well he placed 7th last week in the 2mile and 8th in the mile but had a personal best time... so this week was his 'take a break week'... and he ran the 800 on VARSITY and placed FIFTH!!! This my friends means he letters as a freshman in track!! I'm so stinkin' excited for him!! He will also letter in baseball this year as well... and had he went to playoffs with the basketball team like he was asked he would have got a regional patch as well.. but oh well! (he decided to go play baseball instead of sit the bench in playoffs... a decision he regrets... lol)

Mitchell who is in 7th grade and looooooves track (really? I didn't know anyone really did that.. hehe) ... in the district meet he took 3rd in the 2400m and the mile both... AND beat his personal best by 25 seconds in the 1.5 mile and again in the mile... he has had a very successful season and I really look forward to watching him grow in track!
Madison had a bit of a rough season coming off her broken elbow and being out of athletics for 6-8 weeks and not in the shape she wanted to be for track... but overall did really well!!

Ok... we are in baseball season now and I only have 3 out of the 5 playing now but Morgan is playing both high school and pony league ball so we will be busy as hell once again all summer! lol

now onto craftyness! :)
