My middle schooler started track this week. He's a hefty kids, so not so much on the sprinting, more on the shot putting, lol.  I love spring school sports... track, baseball, soccer, etc. It's great because you get to be outside and get a little fresh air, instead of being cooped up in a stuffy gymnasium with uncomfortable cramped bleachers. Bring a bag of sunflower seeds and our camping chairs and I'm set.

Of course, you run the risk of not-so-friendly weather this time of year.  We've spent many hours in the freezing wind a soccer and track meets (Livingston, I'm talking to you! Oh, and that one year where it drizzled all day in Belgrade, ugh).

Next time,
