Track Star

Jordyn is following in her Grandpa Balsbaugh's and Mommy's footsteps to become the next Balsbaugh track star. She recently competed in a 9 school elementary track meet and did awesome. She is a very natural athlete. She placed 1st in the 50 meter hurdles, 1st in the 200 meter dash blowing away the competition by 8 seconds, 3rd in the 400 meter relay, 2nd in the javelin and 4th in the discus. What a girl. We were very proud of her.

Go Jordy Go!

"I'm hot. When are we going to go? I'm hungry! I have to go to the bathroom. I'm bored. Why can't I play with Jordyn? Can I have more water for my squirt gun. " Jackson
You name it he had a complaint. I will give him the hot part though. The meet was on the hottest day of the year. 90 degree plus weather about melted us all.

Grampy says,"Give the boy a haircut and he might feel cooler."
Grammy says," That's how I feel about the heat! Just get me where it's cool!"

Woo hooo!!!! Great running, Jordyn.

Is she going to be able to keep that up next year?
