Saturday in the Grandstands—-Sunday, April 9, 2017

We spent the day at our grandson’s track meet!

Watching him stretch and reach, in fast movements, which propelled him from start to finish.

It is always, always such a pleasure to watch these young people (all the athletes) compete and along the way form new friendships.  This young man running just behind Bladen goes to school at Rangely, Colorado.  But he and Blade have become friends.  Competition is not about just winning, it’s about stretching oneself in such a way your whole ‘self’ grows.

What a blessing to be able to be there to watch and cheer.  The other great blessing is Blade invited us to come and then made a point to come thank us for being there.

He’s a great kid!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,
