What a Weekend

On Friday night Elijah (my youngest~14 yrs. old) had a track meet. Last week he didn't perform as well as he had hoped. He ran in 4 events (100m, 200m, 4 x 100m & 4 x 400m) I don't think he was in as good of shape as he had hoped to be in for the first meet.

This meet however, they had him run in only two events & he did AWESOME! They placed 1st in the 4 x 100m race (he ran the anchor leg~last) and placed 2nd in the 400m.

He felt much better!

I can't believe how buff he's getting since he's been lifting for football!

Pulling ahead of the pack

Look at the distance he gained against the 2nd place team!

On Saturday he had his big CIBACS presentation before four very tough judges. They had to present a Business/Marketing plan to a Catamaran Co. They have been doing research and took a field trip to learn about the Co. they were representing...etc.

He did so good...I could've never memorized all the information that he did. He had to dress in a suit & stand in front of the judges and give a speech during a Power Point presentation.

CIBACS is such a wonderful program which not only prepares them for college but the business world.

I'm a proud mama! Not only is he a top athlete, but a brainiac too!
