It’s that time of year again

With spring just around the corner (thank goodness!  I am not a winter girl!) it’s just about time for track season. 

The fellas have already started practicing for high school – with a senior and freshman I am looking for a good used cloning machine.

But soon club track will start.  The whole family gets involved.  The kids compete, I (and starting this year Jake) coach and Brian plays sports parent.

This year started with a trip to St. Louis so Jake could take his USATF Level 1 Course.  He  dutifully spent three days in a classroom.  The rest of us played.

We went to Budweiser to see horses, the manufacturing process and free samples of beer.

Jake was able to escape…so we all went to the City Museum.

Where, of course, my kids get into the ball pit and start a dodgeball fight. *insert exasperated sigh*

Then Sunday we visited Union Station – a historical site/hotel/mall.

Other driving through a massive snowstorm to get there and another to get back home we had a great time. 

And Jake passed his test!…just in time to get handed his coaching duties for the year.
