Skate Night

Tonight was skate night for the middle school kids,so Chelsea and some of here girl friends headed over to the skating rink.Now Chelsea isn't a very good skater,but being out with her girl friends she was just as happy as she could be.Even though she fell a few times she was smiling and laughing the whole time.I'm so blessed to have wonderful children .

Wow has the temperature dropped here,high 30's at night 60 today.I guess fall is here and snow is not far off maybe before the months over. Winter is the longest season here 5 to 6 months that sucks!

This past Sunday me and Josh went down to Archbold Ohio for the last race of the year.The weather was fabulous 80 degrees and sunny.This was our only oval race of the year and the kid was fast right out of the trailer,he finished 2 ND in the 2 heat races.The feature came with Josh on the outside pole ,with the drop of the green flag Josh got the lead.It was a 15 lap shoot out and Josh wasn't going down with out a fight he lead till half way when he got a nudge and got loose and slipped to second. He stayed on the leader trying to get under him but ran out of laps finishing second.For only racing once this year on an oval we were pretty happy,and MAN CAN THAT KID DRIVE!

apple lumkin festival

We had beautiful weather in the low 80's this weekend for the apple lump kin festival.With over 5 thousand people from miles around came to Tecumseh to browse and buy the arts and crafts and also eat some of the great food that was there.This event went on the entire weekend,with over 200 booths and food vendors there.They also had many different live bands playing all weekend ,with people off all ages attending the festival it was a great family event.In fact this was the biggest to date in Tecumseh and next year will surely be bigger and better.

This past weekend me and Joshua went down to Camden Ohio for the last national race for the season, THE GT MACHINE RUSSELL COLD CUP GRAND NATIONALS. We struggled in Friday practice pretty much the slowest in our class.Saturday we qualified last out of 10,but the rain came and and we put on our rain tires to race.Joshua drove his heart out and in the rain and had a 5Th place finish in the first class,and the second class he ran he also finished 5Th.MAKING THE PODIUM THAT DAY IN BOTH CLASS'S!!! It was awesome for him to come up threw the pack and beat some of the best in the country.You only get awards 1st thru 5Th.Sunday we raced in the dry with cold temperature's 50 degrees we ended up 6Th and 8Th that day.We had higher hopes for a better finish but racing is tough,all in all we had a lot of fun !

happy days

Well since Joshua decided to quit football his mood and attitude has shot right up.Hes happy when he gets home from school and that makes me happy. You know I was bummed out when he quit,but seeing how happy he is I'm glad he did.I realize he has to live his life and not for me to push him into something he doesn't want to do.
