Whaling Days Run

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!

It was the perfect day for Wild Waves. It made it even better that my sister and her family were able to come up for the weekend and go with us. The kids had a blast spending time together and it didn't hurt that they were doing it at the waterpark!

End of School Year!!

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.
