PL Week 46


Reading time with daddy continues even when he is on road. The girls get ready for bed and crawl in together with my IPad to hear a chapter or two of the Fairy books. They look forward to it all day.


I sewed a new bag. I love the shape, it is a pattern by Noodlehead called Poolside Tote. I am not crazy about the yellow fabric but it is  great size. I can see myself making more of these.


Breakfast is shared via Facetime with Hubby. He reads to them at bedtime and chats with them at breakfast. This is working so well for the girls. They get q-time with him on a regular schedule.


The girls have a 1/2 day for parent teacher conferences. This dismayed Syd so much, she was insistent that she could not eat lunch at home on a school day. This may seem silly but for her it is all about routines and a 1/2 day was not her routine. I avoided the stress it would cause her and made it a special lunch at the mall. This made it all ok to not have a full day at school.


I drove JD and I to Ohio for the Meet of Champions tomorrow. Hubby flew into Dayton and I pick him up. We stayed at same hotel that JD was staying at with the Michigan team. We both wanted the nightstand so Hubby and I choose to sleep in separate beds. We got a chuckle out of it. With him being gone all week we both were getting comfortable with sleeping apart. The beds were so comfy too.


The meet of Champions is 12 boys and 12 girls from 4 states racing at Kettering Recreation Center. A great once in a life time experience for him. JD finished 9th with 15:57, 4th Michigan Team member. He had a great kick. Team Michigan finished in 2nd place.

When we returned home JD signed with Oakland University!


Seeing that he signed a letter of intent to run for Oakland next fall we figure he better apply to the school as well. He was holding off to bring his GPA up some but we really thought he should do is now. Now let hope he gets accepted or the NLI is invalid.

PL Week 45 The week of JD


Today JD asked me to come to the school and take his photo for coaches wall. To get on this wall you have to finish at States in the top 30. He also got an offer from OU to run for them!

Tonight was the last XC banquet JD will have as a Chemic. These are the trophies this team has earned this year. They were the best team coaches has had to date.

JD was a captain this year. At the banquet the captains get to give out paper plate awards, usually they are something funny that each team mates has done this season. The captains then give each other awards. JD was given “This guy deserves a hug award” then the whole boys team piled on the give him a hug.

This is Coach and he is an awesome coach to these kids. He started them off this summer with special workouts that the boys asked for, set up an ice bath outside his house for them to use anytime they wanted, took them all to XC camp and has been there for each of them when ever they needed. We are going to miss him and Mrs. Coach so very much.


His friends or the boyz as he calls them. This is a great group of boys to have as friends.


The team of Champions race. It is only for is the last chance to earn a spot on Team Michigan. The top 12 move on the one more race in Ohio next weekend.
