Well let me see, how did we end up doing this?? Oh yeah, it was Jayce's idea. He had seen one of the flyers and wanted to enter. I hate running so I am not sure why or how I ended up in the race. Sydney somehow managed to escape it. She was supposed to be the photographer. Hmmm... I believe there were around 400 participants in the one mile. I know for you runners out there, that is something you can manage on a break in between chores, so don't laugh. Did I mention I HATE RUNNING! So I would have to say this was something out of the norm for me to enter. Final results were grouped by age brackets and gender. They gave ribbons for the top 5 in each group. Errol- 2nd, LaRee- 4th, Lindsay- 2nd and Jayce- 8th. Not to shab. I won't tell you the finish times since the kids came in before me. But I will say that Lindsay was only 28 seconds behind the overall top winner for the females. Maybe we will try this again next year and I will be draggin Sydney with me!

Sorry, I am trying to play catch up! Time passes so quickly!!!
Sydney graduated from the 6th grade this year. She was one of a handful of kids that received the Presidential Award for Academic Excellence. She also receive the Eagle award. This award is for taking on leadership roles, being a self motivated learner, having a commitment to learning, putting others before themselves and having an attitude that serves as a model for others.
Sydney was the ASB Vice President this last year and Jayce decided to follow in her footsteps.
Here is a picture of the one of the posters that Lindsay helped him make for his campaign.
I figured I better get these posted before the next round of sports start. All three of the kids had a great seasons. Both Sydney and Jayce's teams went to the championships and ended up finishing second place. Jayce even got a couple grand-slams and home-runs this season.
