Mallory and Joe got to ride in an ambulance today. Joe fell off a ladder while he was washing the side of the house and broke his wrist. Mallory rode in the front while Joe rode in the back. Mallory called me with updates from the hospital. She was very brave!

Taylor, Bailey, Natalie and I headed to Upper Marlboro, MD this past weekend for the regional track meet that the girls qualified for back in the beginning of June. It was a four day meet, but we only had to be there the last two days. On day one, Taylor completed in the high jump, the semi-finals of the 100m hurdles, the long jump and the 200m hurdles. Her first three events overlapped within an hour and a half time period. She started with the high jump, checked out to run the 100m hurdles, checked back in to clear another height, checked out to take her long jumps and then checked back in to give three attempts at 5'0".
After long jumping, Taylor came back to the high jump and gave three attempts at 5'0", a height of 8 inches higher then she had ever cleared before. She didn't make it, but her coach was impressed that she wasn't scared to give it a try.
