Hawk ran a 400 in his first track meet this weekend. He has to run in the 15 year old group since he will be 15 by the end of the year. In the 14 -15 year range you can get a lot of different sized kids. Hawk and one other teammate must have been on the youngest end of the line up. He said there were boys with legs at least a foot longer than his. From the fact that he was ready to throw up at the end of the race, I know he gave it his all. Which was too much, for him to turn around and run the 800. So he came home, pulled out the jump rope, jogged a lap around the neighborhood.... I think he'll stick with it for a while. His practice javelin also arrived so we've enjoyed (last week) going out in the evening to throw. His age also requires him to throw the college weight javelin, so he's working up to it right now.
Since I have a good reason to laze around. I decided to try a task off of pinterest - crochet a rag rug from old sheets.
Well, it was giving me fits. I first tried oval, rectangle with corners, circle, and now going for the straight run. I must have added too many stitches at curves because thats exactly what it wanted to do in the wrong direction.
Here's what I'm working on.
I also plan to latch hook another rug with old t-shirts for lots of color. I'm thinking Impressionist flower garden style - .
