My Favorite Team!!!

I'm not a sports nut...

don't like to watch games on TV, nor will you ever find me reading the sports page...but............today.......our son Tim was in town with his team. He is a Cross Country coach for Pickerington North High School and THAT is my favorite team! It's major mother pride that puts my heart there, but it was so much fun to watch him coach and his team ...win!!!


He got to see hometown friends like his buddy Pete...soon to be a first time Dad like Tim.

I was supposed to bring Tim's favorite iced cookies from Hawkins for the team and had to hunt all over the field to find them...and...then I dropped one box...hopefully they tasted just as good,..hmmmm




Talking to a mother and conferring with his friend and assistant coach (L)...


On the field...with 18 teams...


Get ready...


Get set...

Go!....




First runner in and winner (above)! Second...


Third...see all the heart they run with?? It gave me such goosebumps and brought me right back to watching my own boys run...a few years ago. -sigh-


Talk about running with heart this young man (below) is deaf and he ran so hard that he had to take time to recover for a moment afterward...he has a proud mom too!!!



Cool down afterward....


Giving well deserved pats on the back...


We'll be following this team all season, guys, (& Tim) and know that you will all go to state!!!!
Congrats on your win!!


Proud mom...

Congrats to Tim and his team! Nice to be able to go relive some fond memories of when your kids were younger. (We don't age...remember that!)

What caught my eye in this post was the reference to Hawkins iced cookies. They are SOOOO good!! I miss the Hawkins bakery so much. Their cream sticks are out of this world. Now that Mom and Dad are here, who is going to bring me Hawkins baked goods? :)
