They shall run...Isaiah 40:31

Last week the church school up in the city had a track & field day. They invited another local private school plus some homeschoolers to join in on the fun.

M taking off for the long jump...
J going over the pole for the high jump...
S in the midst of his long jump (he won the blue ribbon for his grade category)...
Since the day was geared for grades 1-9, Sacagawea spent most of the day on the playground...
(This was when I noticed my camera is having problems opening the lens on its own. I had to coax it completely open with my fingernail the rest of the day. Anyone know of a quick and easy fix?)

They did offer a 50-yard dash race for all the younger siblings...
Crossing the finish line...
A good time was had by all, although they were quite exhausted from all that running, jumping, and throwing.

Do you know what this is a picture of?
It is deer hair. Apparently the deer know how to run also...right in front of trucks.
The Man couldn't find any other evidence or damage of the deer other than a tuft of hair. He did stop and look for it along the side of the road, but it must have run off somewhere. Probably to some alfalfa field where it will succumb to its injuries. There it will rot. Then a dog will come along and roll in the carcass. Speaking of which, the Dog REALLY needs a bath today.

Remember our van dilemma a few weeks ago? New/different van: $$$$$...new engine: $$$$...new seal: $$$. Fortunately it only needed the new seal. We were able to get it back from the mechanic last Friday. Hooray! No white 15-passenger van in our near future.

I was so happy to get a new update today! I was reassured with the last post that all is well :), but today's update made my day!

You are too funny, Karin. With all you have going on, I can't believe that this post made your day :) I think I might know how you feel...kind of like when a certain woman who refuses to start her own blog emails me a picture of her sweet boys. That makes my day (hint, hint)

You got to my blog awfully fast. I couldn't figure out who ~V~ was so I followed the link back here. I lost most of my links when I changed computers so I'm glad I found you! I love your blog V. And I adore the pics of your kids. They are growing up! I'm impressed with their skills. Especial S with his long jump.

Hate to say it, but ever since someone borrowed my camera at my wedding, almost a year ago, the lense cover has to be coaxed open. Someone with sticky hands must have used it.
