On to the state finals


Well yesterday was certainly a very exciting day.  The regional races were held yesterday and let me tell you it was YUCKY outside.  It had been raining for the 24 hours and everything was a total mud hole.  I felt so bad for the boys and girls who had to run in that mess.  The picture I have here is not from yesterday but one from earlier in the year.  I will post some pictures of yesterday day when I get them on here.  There was alot of slipping and sliding going on I will tell you that much.  I had a hard time running around trying to cheer them all on, I can't imagine how difficult it must of been to race in it.  I thought that our team was going to make it to the state finals.  We finished fourth, top three go to states.  My son, Josh, finished 9th individually and the top 15 go to the state finals, so Josh will be heading to MIS next Saturday to run in the state finals!!!  It is so odd because his twin brother, John, made it to the state finals last year.  They finished almost exactly the same this year as they did last year but they reversed positions!!  Now they can't say that one of them is "oneup" on the other one!!!  They will both have competed in a state final for cross county!  I am very proud of my boys and I am very proud of the whole team.  They all ran great races!  Now I am off to clean up those uniforms!

I remember those muddy days when my boys were younger, not much fun for sure.  Good that they both had a chance at the state finals.  I love the fall color in the trees pictured.  'On Ya' - ma
