A couple photos from our shoot with the Gittels.
Parker in my old rocking chair.
Even a ride in his wagon wasn't helping,
Parker was tired of getting his picture taken!
There's another preview for you mom.


This is for you, Grandma Peanut, even though they are out of order.
Jovi got a little tired part way through her photo shoot.
Here is one shot so you can see what she looks like.
Caitlin was our helper at the shoot and wanted a photo with her niece.
That's all for now, just a couple, we took a couple of hundred.
More later.

Garret made it to state in all four of his events. First up,
his favorite, the high jump. His PR this year was 6'2.
He had the 400 prelim after 2 jumps and couldn't get enough
of his legs back to jump any higher, but did well enough to place 4th.
8 runners make the finals and Garret was 9th in the 400.
In the long jump Garret was frustrated but was 8th.
The relay was his last event.
They placed 6th.
Another year of fun at the smurf turf.


Garret jumped...
and high
and ran in the open 400 and 4X400.
Andee and Jovi cheered him on and
Caitlin jumped for joy!


Andee became a hurdler this year. She also ran the 200 and anchored the 4X1 relay.
At the district meet she came from behind in the relay and won by a hair. Her coach
says it is the best race he's seen and brags about her all the time. If only
we had it on video. She is really becoming a competitive athlete.


Garret became a member of the National Honor Society,
following in the footsteps of his three older siblings.
He also received an award for US History. Can you find him in the photo below?
