    Emma's first track meet

    This year for summer vacation, we decided to keep Emma busy by letting her pick an activity. Out of Soccer, Track and Gymnastics, she chose Track. She's very good. She did the long jump, the 800m run, and the shot put. She scratched 3 times on the long jump, so we'll have to practice that one, but she threw the shot put 9' 3"!!! Quite a good throw for a girl. The 800m run was a different story. She was the youngest by at least 4 years, so needless to say she got left in the dust! But true to her personality, she just kept running even though she knew she was losing. At the end, everyone was cheering her on because they were so proud of her for not quitting! It was one of my proudest moments as a parent. I think there are many lessons we teach our kids, but when they actually do what they're taught, it makes you realize how big an influence you are in their lives. She's a great kid.
