Go Summer! Thursday afternoon was a beautiful sunny and warm day. My Granddaughter Summer was having a track meet so I headed over to her school to watch. I'm not up to speed (no pun intended) on track meets. I know she will do alot of running...and some jumping over hurdles...and some baton passing. This is her first year and she's enjoying it even though she says she always comes in last..which was not true on Thursday. She did great..although in this pic she looks a bit intense. I would too if I had to run, jump and sweat on this hot day. Well, she's young..
One of her things is jumping over these hurdles..I think they look..well, BIG! She's so little..really Summer, you're going to run and jump over all of these? I'm nervous.
Her head is down..she's ready..or is she praying about those hurdles? My poor baby!
She made it over all the hurdles without falling..I don't know why I thought that was even a possibility..oh yeah, that's because I did it once...Another story for another time. I should mention I wasn't on a track team either..don't ask.
He last heat was a relay..here she is getting ready for the "hand off" of the baton.
And she's off! I remember when I could do that..run I mean..sigh..
The look of determination on her face and the constant improvement of her times is what I love about this Grandkiddo..she always strives to improve and never gives up!
Now that's a happy smile! Congrats Summer on a good meet..Mapleton took first place!
After the meet I stopped at my Son's house to pick up some pics that my Daughter-in-law took from prom. What did I find? These monkeys on the trampoline! Cameron was hard to catch without being blurry.
Anthony was a little easier to catch without blur..however I did notice Cameron's feet were barely touching the surface...way to "GO" guys!
