keeping track

 Middle school track meet.  The first of its kind... for Hunter anyway.  Two days worth of events.  With not enough 6th graders, Hunter competed as a 7th grader.  With a 3rd place, 6th Place, and a 1st place under his belt, Its safe to say he'll be back on the track next year.
 So big, yet...
 So little!

These past two days brought back some great memories for me.  Hunter is determined to dig my old cleats out of the garage and dust them off.

from now til the 4th

These swag banners are always a sign that summer is just an army crawl away.  They are the visible glue that binds Memorial Day to July 4th in our house.  The final stretch is before us and it couldn't be any busier.  Leaving the house at 7 a.m. only to return after 8 p.m. these past 3 days is not glamorous by any means.  I long for the evenings with a cold beverage sitting in those red adirondacks while the kids play endlessly with the neighbors in the cul de sac.  10 school days to go.  We got this.

got talent?

Last week both Davin and Avery performed in their school talent show.  Avery and her buddies sang and danced to the Toy Story theme :"You've got a Friend in Me".  Davin and his crew did a dance to a medley of songs including "Soldier Boy" "Party Rock", and "Beat It".  Their glow in the dark costumes were a hit.  Both groups stole the show and made all the time and effort they put in well worth it!!

by land and sea

Dusan's best friends came from Michigan and Utah this past weekend for our friend, Joel's wedding.    Like any good host would do, we took them around to our favorite hot spots and even a spin on a duffy boat.  It was a whirlwind, and I'd even say we are all still recovering.  Saying goodbye is never fun.
