Fun But Exhausting

Well today was the big track meet day!

Exercise: Absolutely none except for jumping up and down cheering for children:)


We ended up taking 49 children and we came home with 99 ribbons. For a small school, I think that’s good, especially as 50 of them were 1st,2nd or 3rd place ribbons:)

Our biggest problem of the day was this guy!

He jumped out of Lyndsay’s hand and flung himself to the ground in order to avoid being eaten🤣🤣🤣

The children were awesome- they really step up and act responsibly! We had no sickness, no misbehavior, no disappearances. I think I’ve chilled out a bit over the past six years that I’ve been doing this. I still go overboard on the planning and organizing, but I’m easier on the children while we are there:)

Overall it was an awesome day- thankfully not too hot nor pouring rain. I did manage to get burned even with wearing sunscreen, staying in the shade, a hat and sunglasses all day. You can tell you’re a fair blonde when…

I have to admit that I did come home and have an almost two hour nap! I must be getting old when the track meet wears me out!🤣


I have almost finished my rug square for the week, but I think I’ll leave it for a bit and knit some on my sweater. I’m hoping tomorrow to get enough done to get a picture taken of it, though I do plan to knit until I run out of yarn as I so dislike having a little bit of yarn left! What am I supposed to do with it??

Well a mindless movie and my knitting are calling to me!

Have fun!
