We did find plenty of ways to stay busy indoors this winter, too!
Whether cheering on the Meeker Cowboys High School basketball teams or watching the Winter Olympics - we found most indoor activities are better with friends!
The other winter sport that had me in the gym on Saturdays was Middle School wrestling. As a 110 pound 8th grader, Hamp saw a huge improvement from last years season and won more matches than he lost - resulting in a 6th place finish at one tournament (with at least a dozen schools) and a 4th place finish at his last tournament!
Then there was Sam's 5th grade "Pirate Musical" that his class had been preparing for all school year! It was very entertaining and needless to say, Sam had a great time!
And in case you thought all we did was play throughout the winter, here is excellent proof that these boys still have some focus on academics during the school year!
Hamp was part of a team that took their documentary video Jackie Robinson: Breaking Barriers to the Regional National History Day competition at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction. Their presentation earned them entry to the State competition in May!
Needless to say, I am very proud of these boys for all they do and how hard they work - and play!
