One Sport Done and Another Begins

Emily's volleyball season has come to an end.  She is looking forward to being able to attend mutual again, no more practices and being a free agent again.  I am looking forward to less chauffeuring  less monthly bills and free Saturdays!  She really did a lot of improving this year.  Now we need to decide if she should continue to pursue the sport or not.......
Chase's track season has begun.  He comes home utterly exhausted everyday.  The combination of early morning seminary and really working his body hard pays a toll.  Chase is running the 800 and mile events this year.  And finally gets to be on the Varsity team.  He isn't so excited about the short shorts, lol!  Last week Chase placed 2nd in the 800 right behind one of his own team mates.  This meet he took first.  It was the most amazing finish.  He lead the first lap and then was neck and neck with his team mate half of the second lap.  At the last turn his team mate started to pull ahead and lead Chase by two full strides.  As they came up on the final straight away Chase kicked into high gear and passed his friend, taking first place!  It was a super close finish!  I was so proud of him.  He has such an amazing amount of endurance.  I love cheering for my kids;-)
