Cross Country

Hailey ran cross country again for Team Moose!

The Poor Thing!  She ate five pancakes before the race! She said that was the worst stomache ache she had ever had!  Not only that but, she stopped in the middle of the race to help a friend who had fallen and she still came in 8th!  Way to go!  I am super proud of you!

Sierra also ran cross country for the Junior High School.  Unfortunately all her meets were after school on Tuesdays. (the same day I teach piano lessons)  She says it was fun and she improved upon her time thoughout the entire season!  Good Job, Sierra!

Cole had a great game against the Badgers!  Cole is white number 95 in the pictures below.  The ball is in the air just left of the Domino's sign.  He got the interception at the 10 yard line and they didn't get him down until the 40!  Way to go!

This is the same game after the hand-off.  He looks like he is the model for the trophies!

Cole vs Goliath!  That is Cole up against Blue #81! 

Cole believes eating Spam is good luck for him on game day.  Here is the story.  We try to expose the kids to different foods from around the world.  One night when we were eating something new the kids mentioned Spam and how they liked eating new kinds of food but they would not, no matter what, be eating Spam!  Well, being the "mean" parents we are we knew we had to give it to them because we didn't want them having the attitude that they are too good to eat something.  Soon after this we served Spam for dinner just before Cole had a basketball game.  They liked it!  He had a great game that night and his coach said, "I don't know what you fed that boy but keep giving it to him!"  Of couse we all laughed at this!  So Friday night he brought me a can of spam from the pantry and asked if we could have it for breakfast before the game on Saturday. (pictured above)  I made spam and eggs on english muffins and he had another great game!  It looks like I'll be buying Spam by the case from now on!
