Hannah's 2nd Cross County Meet: Minutemen Invitational

Hannah had her 2nd Cross Country meet this weekend.  It was just Ledger and I that got to come because the boys were all at their flag football game.  This meet was in Western Hills Park in Little Rock.  It was a neat park and the course was such that I had to run around myself to try to get her picture on the trails all while pushing Ledger in the stroller.  I got a little work out in myself.  Ha!

This meet had 311 Junior girls from all over.  It was a big meet!

And they're off!!

Almost done!

I wasn't able to get any pictures of the end because when I took these last two, I didn't realize the finish line was around a curve that was all wooded.  So, I missed her last sprint.  She came in 163 out of 311.  Again she was about in the middle but her time was 17:03.40 which was much better than last time!  So proud of our girl for working so hard!!  Oh, and Bryant Jr. Girls got 1st place at this meet as well!  They have a big team (made up of the two Bryant Middle Schools) and a pretty good one at that!

Fun at the Park

Today the weather was just perfect so I took Ledger to the park.  He had the best time.  He discovered dirt, leaves, gum balls, rocks, and sticks.  What joy it brings me to just sit and watch him discover his world.  Such precious precious moments that I don't want to forget.

His sweet, chubby legs and arms just kill me.  And his squat!  Too much cuteness!

Thank you, God, for allowing me to have these sweet times with this precious angel.

Hannah's 1st Cross Country Meet: OBU Invitational

Hannah had her very first Cross Country meet on the 2nd.  It was the OBU Invitational in Arkadelphia.  We were able to meet up with Mom, Dad, Wes, and Jeff there as well.  It is about half way between Texarkana and Bryant so it was perfect for Mom and Dad to get to come.  Wes just happened to be home that weekend and was able to come with them.

She didn't look nervous one bit.

I am so glad her buddy, Taylor, is running Cross Country too.  That has definitely made it more fun for Hannah.

Ready to go!!!

The line of Junior girls just about ready to take off.  There were 161 girls from various schools in 7th-9th grade competing.

I got at least one picture of her in the middle of the race, and she was all smiles!  It was a 2 mile run.

Home stretch.  You wouldn't believe how hard and fast the girls come in that last bit before the finish line.  They sprint.

SO proud of her!!!!  She came in 81 out of 161 so right about in the middle.  Not bad at all for her first meet!  Her time was 17:21.93.  Bryant Jr. Girls ended up getting 1st place at this meet.

Hannah with her proud Uncles.

A little red faced, but still smiling!  They did so great!

 I had to throw in this picture of two sweet brothers.

Afterwards, we all headed over to Cracker Barrel for lunch.  Ledger was one tired boy.

Mom's birthday is on the 5th so we celebrated it while we were all together.  I got her some of her favorite candy and a book.

This picture cracks me up!  He was being silly!

Layton relaxing!

My people.  I love them SO much!  Thanks for coming to Hannah's first meet!  Happy Birthday Mom!!!
