Cold, wet, tired, happy.

We had our big PECSAA track meet yesterday.

PECSAA stands for Piedmont Elementary Catholic Schools Athletic Association.  Whew! That's a mouthful!

The kid's school competed against 5 other local Catholic elementary schools.  It was a cold, windy, rainy spring day.  Typically during May in this part of North Carolina, our highs are in the upper 70's and our lows are in the mid 50's. 

But not yesterday.  Nope.  Yesterday the highs were in the mid 50's.  And did I mention that it was windy and rainy?

Perfect weather for a track meet.

The meet lasted almost 5 hours and I was on my feet the whole time getting all the kids from one event to the next. But only the last hour dragged and at that point, I was over it all and  was ready to go.

Sarah competed in 4 events.  She got two 2nd place finishes and two 3rd place finishes.  She was thrilled! 

Peter competed in 1 event. He (and his relay team) finished 1st.  He was thrilled!

The only problem with the day (other than the weather) is that Dan wasn't there with us.  But I sent him the following pictures:



Cold, wet, tired, happy.  It was a nice Sunday afternoon.
