It is looking like fall is over and winter is on it's way!!!!!!
The girls had their 1st basketball scrimmage today.
Our schools football and volleyball seasons are over.
Halloween and trick~or~treating is in the past.
And as of Saturday the Cross Country season for 2009 is OVER.
I have not done a good job of keeping up with what the kids had going on lately so I will cram alot into this post......sorry!!!!!
Delaney and Taylor both ran cross country again this year....they both had a great season and we are sooooooo proud of both of them.
Kale played Jr. Hi football this year and this was his first year of contact football and he LOVED it.....I am not a huge football fan but REALLY enjoyed watching him play....he really had a great season too. I will post about that later.
I would like to focus this post on the girls' cross country season.
Taylor ran here last high school meet at regionals last week....she came up a little short to make it to state.....but ran a good race on a very tough course!!!! The team fell short too by placing 4th and they take the top 3 teams to state and we missed 3rd by 7 points.....grrrrrrr!!!
Anyway Taylor has had quite a career....she has ran cross country for 3 years and she went to state her first 2 years, has alot of medals to show for her hard work, has been ranked in the state many times, and has made some AWESOME friendships along the way!!!!!! Taylor I can not tell you how proud we are of your accomplishments so far in your life!!!!!! Not only has this experience alone made you a better athlete....it has made you a great person....lessons you will use the rest of you life. She is planning on trying to run when she heads off to college next fall....so we hope this was not our last time to watch her run cross country....one of our favorite sports to watch!!!!
Delaney too has had an outstanding year. This is her 2nd year of cross country. This has been her year to shine!!!!! She has gotten MANY gold medals, ranked in the state, many good friends, placed 1st in the conference and got 4th at regionals....and yes that qualified her for state!!!!! They take the top 10 individuals...so off to Ft.Dodge we went this past Saturday.....yes Halloween day...and brrrrrr it was quite chilly!!!!! But she was ready to run......she gave it everything she had and placed 29th out of 123 girls. Not as good of a finish as she would have hoped for but as a parent what more can you ask for!!!!!! We are very proud!!!!!
She has 2 more years to run so we are looking forward to that too!!!!
