Proud dad moment. My daughter came in third place in the heptathlon for the 18 year old division. This meet included all the surrounding states in the competition. She qualified to go to the Junior Olympics in Houston. It will be a great experience for her. 

I don't know why it's in Houston in August. These kids are gonna die in that heat on an outside track. Last time it was there they had to water the track because the surface temperature was 120 degrees and the first runners got burn blisters on their feet through the track shoes.

I really can't wait till she goes off to college in August. Not that I want her to leave home, but because the college would now be paying to get her to all these meets. Sports is like a money pit until your out of High School and travel teams. Three plane tickets, hotel for a week, rental car, and meals. Adds up when you are doing it every month.  Her qualifying was this past week. Wednesday through Saturday all out of town staying in a hotel. At least it was only 1-3/4 hours away. Close enough to drive every day but when they want you warmed up and on the track by 8 am it doesnt work.  So, more hotels and eating out. If she didn't make it the next meet was in Vegas in two weeks. At least I can be grateful for not having to go to Vegas.

Sounds like someone just found some extra funds for some new clubs 🙂

In these weird times Allyssa and I were able to share a special day and have a wonderful wedding. Nothing big or fancy, a simple yet perfect day with close friends and our dogs. We were so happy to have good weather and amazing food along with great company!

Congratulations on her accomplishments and hope Houston isn’t too bad.

Your right about Kids and sports.  Our Gkids have been crazy busy over the years with Baseball, Softball, Tennis and even band.  Trips all over the country and One Softball Trip was to Spain for 2weeks!!  That was a hit on Grandpa piggy bank.

That is an awesome result, congrats to her and you, yeah TX in August is an odd choice. 

Regardless, we are wishing her the best of luck when she participate on the Junior Olympics.
