Our attempt at a garden. So far we have radishes, carrots, corn, sweet peas, green beans, lettuce, broccoli, cucumbers, zuchini, crooked neck squash and lots of weeds.
Our celery and onions haven't done anything yet-not sure if those are a lost cause or not. The watermelon is still inside because it is too cold at night. We haven't had much sunshine so they are a little stunted but progressing. Conner's corn just popped through (rows 2-5). We also attempted some red potatoes. We will take another picture when it looks more like a garden. Hopefully we can keep the squirrels away long enough to harvest.

This is Mason handing off the baton fo rthe 4x400 relay--each person ran 1 time around the track. His team dominated and beat all the others by almost 1/2 a lap.
The second picture is Mason running the 200 meter race. He usually took 2nd in this race.
Never thought Mason would turn out to be a runner--I remember baseball when he was little, he would run so hard and just looked like he wasn't going anywhere. Amazing what stretching the legs can do for someone.

Mason's record beating jump

This is Mason beating the Baker Middle School record for the high jump. The record was set in 1977 at 5'7". Mason beat it at his last track meet jumping 5'7 1/4". He tried 5'8" but couldn't quite make it. This was a very exciting day for him and the school. No one ever came close to Mason during competition--he took first in all his meets. The 2nd place usually jumped 4'10" maybe 5' if they were lucky.

Porter & Conner ahd their first track meet on Wednesday.

Porter did the 4 x 100 relay, long jump, 100 & 400.

Conner did the shot put, 400, 4 x 100 relay and javilin.

Baseball has begun--Freezing weather and all.
Mason played 2nd base and pitched the last 2 innings.

It was a fairly uneventful start to the season.
