A Saturday Event—Sunday, April 2, 2017

Saturday Linkin had a basketball tournament in New Castle, Colorado (her mother went with her), Tally had a soccer game, of which her Dad is her coach, and Blade had a track meet in Cedaredge, Colorado where Grandpa, I, Aunt Kimi and Uncle Cliff—and Cliff’s side of the family,  the delightful Ivy and Norm came to support Blade.

The weather was perfect as an April Fool’s Joke.

We drove up in thick fog, sat through extreme chilling wind, splatters of rain, scudding clouds that hid a warm warm sun, which peaked out in random moments

The kids looked blue as icicles at different times…but they kept on keeping on.

But no matter…it was great fun!

The last race Bladen ran it was pouring rain.  Miserable for those kids participating.

But this…this growing fast Freshman…would take time to come see us…visit with us before heading back to warm up for his next event.

No embarrassment for him!  We are sure lucky people.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Aaaaaaaaaah
    That brings back memories of long ago.
    Great to see all the grand children in competitive sports….win, lose or draw.
    You should be very proud of your daughter, her husband and of course
    the three competitors.
    PS: Still weather chaos all down the Pacific coastline here in Australia.
