September 15, 2018 – Cross Country in Taos

Catheryn ran in her first Cross Country meet of the year back on September 15 up in Taos. It was a beautiful day for a run! They had an early start time, so the kids had to catch the bus at the middle school at 5:15am. If they were tired, you would have never known, because they all performed beautifully. Both the boys team and the girls team placed first!

Catheryn has not been overly impressed with her performances this year. She admitted to me a couple of weeks ago that she waited too long into the season to start pushing herself. She wants to run for the high school next year, so we have plans to run together in the off season. She has great potential, she just needs to believe in herself a little more. She will have her final middle school meet this Thursday here at home.

September 6, 2018 – Nathan’s First Football Game

Nathan has his final football game of the season this Wednesday, so that makes me feel even worse about just now getting around to sharing his first game with you! I can tell you that the Hawks have had an amazing season! They are currently 6-0, and while the game this Wednesday might prove to be their toughest opponent, they are still aiming to finish the season with a perfect record. They have a great group of boys out there who all work really well together. It has been fun these past two years watching them grow and improve as a team. I guess now we will just have to wait and see how many of them go on to play High School football!

Nathan!

That’s Nathan on the ground… 🙂

The game was delayed due to weather, and it rained off and on, but it sure was fun!

Kick off, Nathan’s best friend is the kicker.
