what I've been doing...

Is watching my kids to this:
 youngest doing a fun run...he surpassed his goal of 36 laps and ran 53!
 both my boys advanced in their scout classes!  Middle one is getting REALLY close to becoming a Life Scout, then Eagle!!
 currently my middle guy is trying the long jump...he's actually pretty good #7 pretty good for a little bit of training....
 yep, the girl is playing soccer AND running track...notice the left ankle she sprained it about a month and half ago, in a soccer game...it's healed but she still wears the brace for support...
 my middle son does pretty good in the 200 as well...coaching is strange in junior high..will not go into the soap box..just want him to catch the bug because he will LOVE the coaches in high school!
 so this psycho kid of mine picked up a new event this year...triple jump..this is her bound in between jumps, first time she EVER made it into the sand.  Pretty exciting stuff!  Now this is a statement of fact (so not necessarily bragging.... ;) but she is now automatically qualified for state AND she happened to win this invitational...umm...yeah her coaches are PRETTY excited!  Truth be told mom too! ;)
 yep, she still hurdles in fact she is in the finals of a race today at ASU, sort of BIG deal as there are colleges competing this day (in other heats) which means there are college coaches there WATCHING!  Sort of a nervous wreck--EVERY time my kids go run I get queasy...
 yep, this boy played soccer this season too...last night was his last game EXCEPT he was on a campout for scouts..he was a pretty AWESOME defender!
okay, my youngest has found a NEW love (if you didn't know he is in the ORANGE--his FAVORITE color)!  He is TRULY loving Lacrosse, thankfully he finished last month and so we aren't TOTALLY running wild. (he ended just as the other two picked up what they were doing...)

To say that we have been busy around here is an understatement, I LOVE that my kids are active and really enjoy what they are doing...not just spending time in front of MINDLESS video games and TV.  Not saying that we don't watch movies (we just had a Hobbit marathon..in which we all fell asleep last night at 9pm...)
Thanks SO much for the visit today...I promise I'll be back with more crafty things.  I do have to say I was pretty proud of the fact that I CAUGHT up on Project Life yesterday...was behind 8 weeks, but I did it and it felt GREAT!  Have a AWESOME day!
