Track Banquet

The end of the year track banquet fell right in the middle of finals so they decided to do a quick pizza party after practice.

Q14A2768copy

I was totally ok with that as I have been sitting through a lot of banquets and such lately.

Q14A2769copy

Bittersweet for sure.

Q14A2772copy

Going to miss it, without a doubt

Q14A2760copy

Prom

Q14A2645copy

I made Austin take a few pics with his crazy brother.

Q14A2648copy

I have no words

Q14A2658-2copy

I can’t believe this was his last High School dance

Q14A2666copy

This year Austin decided to go with his runner friends so we followed he and Taylor over to get pictures done

Q14A2673copy

It was raining on and off and muggy. Same as last year!

Q14A2676copyQ14A2684copy

Austin and Taylor looked amazing

Track – OCC

It was another cold rainy May day. And prom again.

Q14A2559copy

At least this year Austin ran early-ish. It wasn’t the fly out of there for the 15 minute shower to get to prom pictures…

Q14A2562copy

Austin’s post race pace. Headphones on- I need to ask him what he listens to pre-race

Q14A2569copy

It was so awesome to see our guys take the lead of the pack from the start. They were running the 2 mile race. 8 laps around the track.

Q14A2587copy

I love it- Austin checking out the guy who was creeping up on him but ended up behind him ๐Ÿ™‚

Q14A2600copy

He fought hard in this race

Q14A2621copy

And ended up taking 3rd overall and advancing to districts.

Q14A2628copy

It’s funny that in other sports to punish you they make you run. It’s not easy people. I can’t do it.

Q14A2631copy

And I’m pretty much sure you always feel like you are dying.

Q14A2633copy

But to say that I have enjoyed watching his running career is a big understatement.

Q14A2639copy

So proud of this kid- words can’t even describe it.

The next step

I’m not going to lie.  This month has been a big roller coaster of highs and lows and trying to wrap my brain around how we got to this point (so fast) and how we navigate from here.  Family trips are no longer the easy pick a date trips- it’s how can we coordinate schedules and fit it all in- even for just a week.  But on the flip side I am so freaking excited for what this kid does with his life.  He got into the honors program at Ohio State and I could not be more proud.  He has worked so hard to make this happen.  It’s hard to see the first one fly the coop but I could not be more proud!!

Susan - Extra glad he’s not far from home. I bet you will see him more than you think!

Super Games

Q14A2447copy

At this point of the day the 6th graders were getting a bit obnoxious and rowdy

Q14A2467copyQ14A2471copyQ14A2481copy

It happens every year.

Q14A2508copy

It was a little chilly for the waterslide but the kids don’t care.

Q14A2513copy

Today is Austin’s last day of High School. Unbelievable! The rest of the kids have one more week. I am ready for summer!!
