Track 2013

Another year of track has come and gone.  Keston had an okay year doing long and triple jump.  It is hard when he is jumping against kids who are a good foot taller than him but he kept going. 

Chad tried hurdles this year and he loved it.  He had a great hurdle coach who really helped him get the form he needs.  Again he is racing against kids that are a lot taller than him but he held his own.  Middle school sports are weird because you have kids that are beasts that you wonder how many times they've been held back to these teeny kids who look like they should still be in grade 4. Chad also did triple and long jump but again hurdles were his favorite. 

 I am told these are horrible arms and he would kill me if his coach ever saw this picture. 

We actually had some great sunny days for track meets as well as some true to Montana weather of extremely cold too. 

Back Track to Easter

I tried to get the morning wake up hair do but he wouldn't hold still long enough.  I love the fact that my three teenage kids still want to do easter egg hunts. 

 Tylissa was happy with her stash so she stopped looking.  Keston and Chad were die hards.  I am going to have to start counting eggs because we keep find them.

A few treats from the Easter Bunny.

Gotta get Maggie in the action.  
Chad finding the egg that was stuffed full of gummie bears.

 I don't know why I spend hours filling easter eggs, hiding them, only to have them dump everything in one bowl.  What would the world be without Jelly Belly beans.

We were so lucky to have Granny and Grandpa come for a LONG visit.  We had a great time.  They spoil us rotten as always and we were able to enjoy the simple things.  When was the last day you flew a kite?  Grandpa and Tylissa took the first round while Keston and Chad played ball with their friends.  Granny and I took a walk on the walking path and she flashed many motorists while trying take off her multiple layers . . . don't deny it Granny the good citizens of Kalispell just wanting to get a few things from Costco got more than they bargained for.  (love you)

Chad and his momma laying in the grass flying the kites, and yes we got them tangled up trying to take the picture but we got them untangled before they came down.

There they are . . . the kites.
