Go Kids Go!!

BOY,

We've been busy guys.

Yeah, I know, you guys have been busy too but we are going to continue to be busy at least until we get to NY. (Unless my brother tries to put us to work).

So, here's what's going on with the kids...

TRACK AND FIELD!

The kids had a meet this Friday in Alamo.

Well, here we just have the field portion. My kids don't like to run, except for Devyn. He'll run ALL day. Then, he'll run to his bed. Crazy.

Devyn is usually a High Jumper but he wanted to also do the shot put. He didn't get to compete in Friday's shot put because he was already in place to start the high jump.

We'll get back to shot put for him later...




Let's focus on his favorite event...

High Jump.

His coach was impressed right from the start.



Okay, So...I'm biased...whatev...





Here's video of Devyn during this Friday's meet.

He got 1st place in High Jump

Last week, he came in 4th.

Miah has proven to be the SH!T in shot put. Yes, Devyn will brag that he came in and beat her mark but he's a boy...


Miah came in 2nd in last week's meet. She was beaten buy a girl who has been at this for a year. Last week was her second day EVER touching the shot put.

This week, she came in 2nd again. Beaten by the same girl. She beat her last week's mark by 6 inches. Her arch nemesis actually didn't throw as far as she did last week. I think it's intimidation. That's what we are going with. Miah's gonna come back and get her.
Just watch..

Dom, my newly interested in sports athlete (I honestly think he's there because of the girls but we'll see) has been doing his best in pole vault. He hasn't cleared the qualifying height of 6 ft yet. He's says he's not scared to go high but....

He looks very professional holding the equipment. I'm gonna have to push him farther. He's older so he's lazier. He keeps thinking of excuses why he can't run in practice...my leg hurts...I don't feel well...blah blah blah...

I've used them before when I was in track. I know how effective they are..

But they don't work with me.

We're gonna get him up there to pass that 6 ft mark. Hopefully before we leave for NY. I'm still proud of him for coming out at every practice (not that he has a choice) and making the most of it.

All of my kids make me proud. I'm anxious to see how their lives will unfold!

Six days from now we will be on the road to NY.

Six days from now is also Devyn's birthday. He will be 9. He's getting big. I'm not sure if he will let me swaddle him anymore.

I'm gonna try my best though.
