Our wonderful weekend

Monday, May 20, 2013


Happy Monday! I hope that you are ready to conquer the last week{s} of school!  I am not sure I can remember a more jam packed weekend. On Friday, we traveled to the campus of A&T in Greensboro to cheer on 4 of our All-Conference varsity track team members compete in the State Track Meet.



That's Maris is Lane 2!!


It was almost 90 degrees, which made those metal bleachers a little warm.  



She competed in the 100 and 300m hurdles and although she didn't have her best times, she placed 9th in the State in both!



A few hours after Maris competed, Jack's baseball team won the 3rd Round of the Conference Play-Offs! This is the fartherest {is that a word??} a SM baseball team has ever gone!! We compete in game 4 on Tuesday.  

As soon as the hand-shaking ended, Jack ran to get himself to the campus of WCU for opening night of the high schools amazing performance of 'Pirates of Penzance'. 



Doesn't our ship look 'floatable' ???!!!


Here's a close-up of Jack, my favorite dancing Pirate.

We truly have the most talented high school kids and some incredibly dedicated teachers and moms.


And the 2 happiest Stage Managers ever, Steph and Maris. {We got her back in time for Saturday's shows!}



As the final performance was wrapping up Sunday night, Maris snuck out of backstage to make it across town to the Hall of Fame Banquet.




I can't tell you how special it was to be among such honored former Jackson County athletes, to hear their recounts of past games, their touching stories of the coaches that shaped them, and the lasting team friendships.   



But the most special part of the night was witnessing Maris receive the 'Most Outstanding SM Athlete of the Year' {yes, she beat out all of the boys!!} for her participation of 4 years of Volleyball, Basketball and Track. She has worked so hard, on and off the court/field, to better herself, her times, and her technique. She never settled and continued to put in as many hours as possible to get a little better and a little stronger and she always encouraged her team mates to do the same. {Her cheerleader, Cal, was also pretty proud, I think}  

It was a fantastic end to a pretty amazing weekend!


 Now I need a weekend to recoup form the weekend...
