Preston's track rematch.

Good morning, it is Tuesday.

Last night was Preston's big rematch [Track meet] against the kid from Sunrise Elementary. This kid beat Preston in the 75 yard dash a week and a half a go, as well as in last years Jr. Olympics. The Sunrise kid was undefeated all of this year, and last year. Preston was undefeated except for the race that this kid beat him in. After the last match up, Preston finally asked me to help him with his form and sprinting (I usually don't make my voice heard until he asks, which is usually when his track coach is out of ideas or he really wants to get better) So last week we worked on starting and striding. Well, his work paid off. In a very exciting dash Preston got a great start and held his opponents off all the way, winning the race by a stride. He gave all the credit to his...haircut! Thinks he was just more aerodynamic! Nah, the drills made a difference, but his fan club thinks it was the haircut. Preston also won the long jump by more than a foot, and did excellent in the relay. The Jr. Olympics are next Saturday at French Field, come on out and root for Preston.

Today the rain is back. We are hoping the weather gets its rain out today as Lillie has her first ever field trip to the Zoo tomorrow.

Yes, Lillie still has her little WSU stickers on her temples. I don't know if we will ever get her in the bathtub again! She loves those little stickers. Hmf.

See you tomorrow.
