I'm only on #5... eventually I'm hoping to nail focus. So frustrating! :) Would have preferred the lighting on the right side of my face to not be so bright, but learnings for next time. I LIKE the hair in my eyes... as with this length it always seems to get stuck there.

While I slept in, Dan was getting up and getting around for a 100 miler to kick of IronMan training!
I hit Walmart and picked up all sorts of goodies for treats for the team (coke, diet coke, Oreos, Nutter Butters, bananas, oranges, pretzels & ice. I arrived just in time to pick up Dan from a MASSIVE blow out about 6 miles from JR's.
Thank God he wasn't hurt, as it happened at 30 mph coming down a big hill. YIKES!
After hanging out for a while, we got him all fixed up and sent him back out for lap two.
Lots of folks dropped out of the full 100
but Joe, Dan and Dave trooped on!
However, only Dave and Joe finished near the 70 mile mark. Dan ended up with 2 more flat tires (giving him a grand total of 4 for the day) and Dave also ended up with 4 flats! It was a rough day on the B-line, but everyone got home safe... and really? That's what counts most!
2 years ago Joe started Junior High School at age 12, shorter than my 5ft 11in self...
...today I sent him off to his last day of 8th grade at age 14 and almost 6 ft 2 in!
Next year? I have a Freshman!!! Joe has grown SO MUCH in the past two years... not only in height and weight but also in maturity and intelligence.
I am so very proud of him, establishing himself as a solid A/B student who is extremely responsible and trustworthy.
Over the past two years, he has built a solid foundation for high school... how did I get so lucky to have such a neat offspring?
**He is officially bored of Mom taking pictures, although he was a doll to offer to get up early so I could take his picture before he left for school (and before I arrived too late for work).**
All done, hanging on the stairs while I tell him how proud of him, I am!
Which resulted in a funny face, there is ALWAYS 1 picture with a goofy face... I think his goofy faces deserve a whole blurb book???
Finished hearing how awesome I think he is, he promptly asked me to buy him a game in iTunes! See? Smart! Wait till mom's all happy and proud then ask for money! :) Enjoy your last day, Kiddo!
