James Clemens Early Bird Battle Royale Invitational

Today Grace ran in her first outdoor track meet, the James Clemens Early Bird Battle Royal Invitational, which also happened to be a high school meet. She ran the 2000m Steeplechase, 1000m and 2000m. She did great for her first meet especially considering she didn't feel well and it was freezing for most of the day. There was actually still snow everywhere around the track when the meet first started this morning.

Her time for the 2k Steeple Chase was 10:04.74, 9:46.02 for the 2000m and 4:12.23 for the 1000m.

Snow Day Fun!

The snow was so pretty to wake up to this morning.  I'm not sure how long it snowed for but there are reports saying that parts of Madison received 8.5 inches.  We measured again today and on our table out back, it has about 7.5 inches.  

The kids had another full day of playing in it before it starts melting.  They had more snowball fights, shot the snowman with Zach's bow and arrow, Grace went on the 4 wheeler with Chris and we went to JC sledding.  There is a pretty big hill by the track and baseball fields so we headed there.  It was fun and a little scary!  The kids loved it until Zach broke his sled when he hit a rock.  Watch the video below and make sure your sound is turned on.  It's hilarious!  Thankfully, he didn't get hurt although his tail bone is a little sore.  Once we came back from sledding they played outside even more!  

I bet they will be exhausted and sleep well tonight!
