I told you I’d post pictures of our grandkids flashing down the track. Here they are! Last Saturday, May 1.
Here's Darby, just about to finish her lap of a relay. See anybody near her? She fast and determined when she's on the track. Her team won that race and a few others besides. In fact, one team dropped out of the competition because its coach knew there was no way to beat Darby’s third-grade team.
It’s the first time we’ve ever seen Jake race. He's a fifth-grader. He took the lead here and finished first in the 200 meter dash. He loves to run and it shows.
Wow! He ran the fastest lap of a 1600 meter relay. In 67 seconds! Flash! His team finished half a lap ahead of the second place runners, who were sixth-graders. (Pound your chest! Pound your chest!) That boy can run, I tell you. That's one of his coaches on the side cheering him on. We were, too!
We couldn’t make it to Georgia to watch Meghan graduate from college, but we watched on streaming video. Trouble with that is, you only get to see her for a couple of seconds. But she graduated from Georgia Southern this morning (Saturday) and our whole family is as proud as you can be. She looked so proud and beautiful in her cap and gown. Rightly so!
There is a delightful new picture on My Hats Blogs (two pretty girls). Check it out.
Oh, by the way, those pictures in the previous post were taken in Emporia, Kansas (coffee stop) and at an I-40 rest area in the Texas panhandle (decoffee stop).
