Track Star

Macen participated in the Purdue Area Track Club for elementary students and did well. He got 1st in the 55m hurdles at 11.1 seconds, 3rd in the 55m dash at 9.7 seconds and 2nd in the 200m dash at 40.8 seconds. We have a bit of a speedster on our hands. As of the beginning of the school year, he said he wants to be a running athlete when he grows up. I'm sure this fueled that desire :) So proud of him!

And that brings us to when he was just 15 months old. All on his own, he dropped to the ground like this then would jump up and take off running. Through the years we have thought he was fast and have had people tell us he runs fast so it was nice to see where he actually stood to others in his age group.

End of Basketball

Macen had his last game last weekend. He showed major improvement from beginning to end. It was very entertaining watching these 7-8 yr olds play. He had fun and is looking forward to it next winter.

Both boys handed out play doh as their valentine's this year. 

I also got the 'Best Mom Ever" award. They got skylanders for valentines day and have been waiting months for the Kaos trap. I was able to snag it online finally and surprised them with it. Their faces were priceless and thankfully pictures don't come with audio because there was some screaming.

Toddler Time

Monday, February 9, 2015


Macen's love of boxes has lasted long after the baby and toddler years. He loves them so we have a couple of big ones temporarily "living" in the living room. Maddox likes to add his blanket, blankie, stuffs and a toy to his. He crawls in and plays with the toy for awhile.
