Crazy Coworkers = Crazy Presentations

We have a big project going on at work where all the managers are reviewing job descriptions (there are over 800) because we are in the works of revamping our job descriptions and evaluation tool. So the supervisors at the Brendan House called and asked if we (Tiffany and I) could come to a staff meeting to "PUMP US UP" and get them excited about this project. Well smoke starting coming out of Tiffany's ears her fabulous brain was working overtime. The "Pump you up" was ringing like a bell. So we did some quick planning and showed up for the meeting as Hans and Franz the cousins of Arnold Schwarzenegger from Saturday Night Live. Our boss is the VP of Human Resources and the Administrator for the Brendan House - she had no idea what we were doing and I am glad to report that she laughed so hard and we still have our jobs.


The grand entrance!


Listening to questions!
Needless to say the presentation went great - once they were able to stop laughing. It is a presentation they will never forget. Here are the lovely pics. It is hard to make a serious, straining, workout face when you're laughing.
Tiffany had a life jacket on and water wings and it gets better . . . she shoved pillows in her pants for those bulging leg muscles. I was not so clever I just had stuffed animals for biceps.
Things you do to enjoy your job!

The Mighty Runner

As you already know Keston started x-country this year and he did fabulous. He had a great time and really enjoyed it. This is him finishing the Mountain West Classic in Missoula and the University of Montana. The highschool runners went first. There were about 300 middle school runners from all over Montana, Idaho, and Washington. It was amazing that so many people like running . . .

Anyhoo, Sorry that it is not the right side up so just tilt you head and enjoy. It was the shortest race he had to run at 1.3 miles and his time was 10:01. I'm so proud of that kid.

Getting in the starting gates.

After the race - I told him if anyone gets in his way to blind them with his whiteness!

This was the race the week before in Pablo. Thanks to kind friends they snapped a picture (he's in the back) because I was with Chad at football this week. We had to alternate.

Missoula was Keston's last race for the year - he got sick and then it got really cold. He went to practice a couple of times but then his fever came back so I told him he would have to wait until next year. It was a great year and I can't wait too see what he will do next year!
