Race Night


The last couple years we have spent most Saturday night's at the Races... The boy's have been BMX racing... When they aren't playing baseball... Last night they did great... Brycen who really hasn't been to into it has finally got the bug... He used to be on a joy ride, when he would pass me in the stands he would wave and say "Hi Mom" ... Matt would say your supposed to be racing , watching where your going not waving at your mom... Of course I thought it was precious.. He loves his mommy...So last night he didn't wave he was on a mission, and it payed off he got 2nd place... The smile on his face was priceless...
Hayden did pretty good too... He didn't qualify for the main event last night .. This is not typical of him.. When Hayden first started out racing he won 8 straight races and then he had to move up to the Intermediate ... There he has struggled a bit more ... It hasn't come as easy I think most of it is a head game ... Last night I was still very proud of him ... Usually when he doesn't win he is a poor sport...(witch is really embarrassing) But last night he took it well... He said where he could improve next time and was ready to cheer on his brother in his race... When Brycen came back with a trophy he put his arm around him and told him what a great job he did... That was a win in my book...(even though Matt reminded me not a real win I guess it depends how you look at it)
Last but not least is Olivia... Olivia races in the training wheel race... Last night she was the only one who raced so of course she was the the 1st place winner... She usually races against two or three little ones... They give them a trophy no matter what place they come in ... They race from the last hill on the track witch is never enough for he... She always wants to go again... Last night she said " I beat those guys" I guess in her mind...I think one day she might beat her brothers...

We have really good friends that go with us ... It's really a good time to cheer on the kid's and relax with friends... It's a family sport that we all get in to and really enjoy... Here's a little video I took of Livvy's race last night...

great job to brycen!
and i'm with you--learning how to lose well is at least as important as winning. that's a great lesson for hayden to learn, even though i suspect that he will win at most things in life.
livvy's video was so cute. we have got to come and watch one of these nights.
