Since I have lived in Idaho, every Easter egg hunt or Easter celebration that I have been involved
with has one characteristic that still surprises me over and over. It's
the brown grass. I know it is spring and you can see a hint of green
coming, but it is not very close. So we usually take a picture of the
Easter dresses and it is always accompanied with the brown or maybe straw colored grass.
Track days were actually pretty fun for a mom that had never been to a track meet. Jeff on the other hand was a track runner and had plenty of experience in this arena. Katelyn had played volleyball her whole life and had always wondered if she could make it to state if she chose an individual sport. Katelyn got to attend a state volleyball game as a Freshman and back up if a Senior got injured, but had never played there. Anna had gone with her team of cross country, but never as a track runner. So we had to get past districts to get there.
Anna did a pretty good job on her long jump and we were hoping that she might get in this way, but it was a little short.
Katelyn competed in the discus and actually qualified to go to state in that sport. She was so excited.
She had accomplished her dream to go to state.
Now let's try shotput. She ended up qualifying there as well.
Anna had one last chance. In order to make it to state, you had to get first, second or have the lowest time of two district races in third place. So 2 1/2 got to go.
Anna really pushed herself harder than she ever had and ended up being 3rd. So then we had to wait to see if her time was better than the other third place winner from the other district.
She did it! and miraculously both Kate and
Anna were able to qualify.
