So...today is Mother's Day. Happy Mother's Day! But I want to talk about yesterday.
Yesterday was the end of a very interesting season for us. It is called track season. The thing that made it interesting was this kid. (Abigail)
Abigail tried junior high track this year. She did long jump and high jump. Turns out she's got quite a knack for it! Especially high jump.
She competed yesterday in the Valley Championship. The competition was for the top girls from six counties. She didn't place this time, but did match her personal record. That is a win!
This is what she jumped in. She would not be persuaded to give up her comfy old shoes for some fancy-dancy track shoes. Or even a NEW pair of $20 Payless Champion sneakers. No Sir! Now that the season is over, I sincerely hope she will release these for a proper burial.
So here we are, all the people who make me a mother, saying goodbye to track season.
