Ready. set. go!

This layout was just so fun to do!  I was inspired by jen jockisch....bare with me this is a bragging mommy moment on this girl.  She competed in the Hershey track meet and placed 2nd in her age group in the 100, this qualified her to go to the state meet which was held about an hour from our house.  This was nerve racking for her (and ME!--track was my sport LOVED it!)  when her race came up I warned everyone around me that I was going to yell REALLY loud.  As promised I did (I have no idea how I managed the picture of her running I was jumping around so much!) At one point this lady asked me which one she was I said, "she's in 3rd!"  I think she was sort of surprised--I didn't care.  My hubby and boys wanted to hide under the bleachers--I guess I was loud.  ANYWAY, after the race was over this man turns around and says, "you know you could've warned us." I looked at him and said, "well, I did."  His wife leans over and says, "just ignore him he will be yelling like that in a few minutes."  One last funny thing about this story.  Afterward my daughter came up to the stands and said, "mom, I could hear you. (she can NEVER hear me at soccer games.) I didn't like it."  Guess what kid?  Get used to it!  I'm your PROUD mama! :)  She ended up placing 7th out of the entire state--Pretty sweet!
Today is BEAUTIFUL!  We only have one more Monday of soccer practice and we will be DONE! :)  Yipee--I've enjoyed this season but will be glad when we don't have to run to practice.
thanks for stopping in!  off to throw the softball with my girl who is trying out for softball next week! :)
