You know, I started to apologize for this photo-heavy entry, to anyone who still uses dial-up because I know what a bear it can be to load photos that way .... then I got to wondering ... does anyone still actually *use* dial-up? Or hot rollers? Or liquid eyeliner??? Just wondering ...
Track Meet 2008, in Pictures:
and long jumps, oh my.
and long jumps,
and dashes, oh my.
Tug of war,
and long jumps,
and relays, oh my. (With Aunt Kelly standing next to you, cheering you on.)
And more tug of war,
and more tug of war,
and even more tug of war, oh my.
Now we're back to hurdles,
and hurdles again,
and more dashing,
and another long jump,
and oops, one final long jump, oh my.
And posing for pictures,
and grandma, who really didn't feel very good, but came to root on her grandkids anyway,
and mom, again, oh my.
And lastly, lining up for the 800 meter dash (although only a few of the kids actually dashed the entire way, and many jogged, and a few did a brisk walk near the end because they were really getting tired 800 meters is two entire laps around the track and that is a damn long way, did you know that, and there were even a few kids who gave up and just walked the rest of the way, some even holding their sides very dramatically for good measure,
and actually running the 800 meter,
and still running,
and finishing in second place, which I thought was great, considering Kellen was one of the few who managed to run the entire time, but what we won't mention is that the kid who won first place lost a shoe on the first lap and still wound up beating Kellen even running in one sock, whatever, it doesn't matter,
