Just for the heck of it let's pretend that I know what I am doing as a mother and that all the postings here didn't really happen.

First Meet of the 2012 Season
Jakey decided to do cross country again this year.
Our goal was a simple one. He does not need to be the best runner out there, but I do ask that he keeps running for the whole mile.
And he did!! I was super duper excited!!! He did great. Came in 31st. Right smack in the middle. Last year he and his buddy would just walk and chat up the whole time. They did not want the race to actually get in the way of social hour.
And he had a very strong finish! You can just see the speed slipping around him as he races to the finish line.
He came home from his time trials at practice boasting that he not only finished his race within the time parameters but also had time to stop and the honey bucket for a quick pee half way through the race. Either my son is the Flash or the time parameters are way too lenient.
Seeing how a lot has happened since I started this blog 3 years ago, I figured I should update my "about me" In 2010 my huband of 15.5 years passed away very suddenly from illness. Just recently I have found myself married again to a wonderful man who loves me and my children for who we are. This is not to say I am not without my heartache, it just means I am no longer alone in it. It is such a blessing to have someone to hold me when I hurt and to rejoice with when I am happy and most of all to be a wonderful example and friend/ father to my children.
