More "Lasts" But Some Great Times

It was a fantastic Friday.

Kyle participated in the long jump at the Provincial Track Meet at the U of M. When we got to the University I couldn't believe HOW COLD IT WAS--like 50 degrees. I am used to track meets in June where you sweat. I had a sweater and a jacket with a hood and wished I had gloves. Anyway, Kyle did GREAT. He jumped about 1/2 meter over his best on his first jump of the day. When they went to the top 8, he was still in the competition. At the end HE WON. We were so happy.

With his coach and his dad (aka asst. coach ; )

Taking off for his first jump of the day.

Hard to get this picture--I have many of just his hands when he's standing in front of the guys who rake the pit.

Receiving his 1st place medal.

A very happy father and son.

While waiting for the medal ceremony, we left the track meet and went to Dairy Queen to get the champ a Blizzard and then headed over to the Church for a little BB. Kyle and his dad played a little PIG (dad won) and 21 (Kyle won). (Unfortunately mom couldn't hit the broad side of a barn ; )

So it's back to the University this morning for the triple jump. Another cold day, but hopefully not as cold as yesterday. We'll see how he does.

Tonight we have Seminary Honors night and tomorrow is Kyle's last piano recital. I've been feeling quite nostalgic.

It is so hard saying goodbye to all of the familiar high school stuff... moving on. It maybe easier for him than for you Yvonne.
At lease that is the way it works for me... I miss my kids.

But everybody has to grow up... except for my husband. ;) (kidding)
