Tippah County Lake XC Meet

Earlier today was the Tippah County Lake XC meet. Our homeschool cross-country team ran excellently! We had participants in the JV girls and boys and the Varsity boys. Our JV girls' team won 2nd place overall and 4 of our girls finished in the top 15 and were awarded t shirts. They were all so happy! Julie won 1st and Olivia 2nd in the JV race. Their times are in the sidebar.
Since this race was held at a state park, we all took picnic supplies and stayed most of the day. The weather was pleasant, and the children all had an enormous amount of fun. Julie has blogged all about it, complete with pictures. Check it out.

We have been so blessed with a super xc coach--Heather! She is just wonderful, and I appreciate all of the time she has spent and the sacrifices she has made to coach our homeschool xc team. She has 4 young children of her own that she homeschools---plus making time to coach our team. Wow! Please visit her blog too for a recap of the day.

Clay did not run in this meet because he was camping with his Pops (my daddy). Twice a year, the members of our Contenders For the Faith club take a father/son camping trip. Since Jimmy had to work Friday, and he needed to attend the xc meet (to set up the tent, carry all of the supplies---you have to park a long way from the event in xc meets!-- and document the day in pictures and video), my daddy took Clay on the campout. He went with Clay on the last one too, and they both seemed to have a wonderful time! Jimmy was able to spend a few hours at the campsite last night. Clay said that he didn't go to bed until midnight, and he was up at 6:00 a.m. ready to ride his 4 wheeler. He was tired this afternoon!
