Well hello blog! It's been a while! I thought we were busy with our little ones several years ago, but it's nothing compared to now. We literally have baseball 4 times during the week and for 4 hours on Saturdays! It's crazy. Add in cub scouts, guitar lessons, homework, and a husband out of town for what feels like forever, oh and busy season, blogging has taken a back seat. I have a lot to update on and I'm determined to keep this going.
At the beginning of February, Hudson ran in the Mercedes Kids Marathon for the third year in a row. I honestly tried to get him to not do it this year (it's total chaos), but he loves it. And there is something about watching them run the final stretch to the finish line that makes our parent hearts happy, so we face the madness with a smile. Ok, maybe a half smile...but when it's over and we are back in our cars, it's the greatest day ever! :)
Of course we had to run with friends. There is no better way! We are missing a couple in this picture, but man, this is one sweet group of boys. Their moms and dads are pretty sweet too!
He ran the mile in 8:40. I'd say that's pretty fast for a 7 year old! Heck, that's pretty fast for a 35 year old! :) He did not come through with any of his buddies this year and when I asked him about it, he said they were too slow for him! I think he may have a running calling...he loves it.
However, all was redeemed when Hudson won first place for design! Out of all of the cars in the entire derby, his car, "Bad Hair Day," won! Hudson was holding out hope that maybe this might happen and it did! We were so proud of him! What a fun first Pinewood Derby. Next year, the Reed's will be working on our speed! :)
