Shooting Sports Practice

We had our last "official" practice for Shooting Sports yesterday (we will practice 3 evenings this week yet). The State Meet is this coming weekend. The kids have worked really hard....every Sunday afternoon for the last 4 months. Almost all the kids involved have qualified in at least one discipline. Jeremy is shooting 10 disciplines and Courtney is shooting 5 and they both will shoot an archery 3-D this weekend too.

Jeremy and Courtney did very well at the Watoma Relay Track Meet last Friday. Courtney placed 1st in shot put and 2nd with one of her relay teams. Jeremy placed 3rd in discus and 4th in shot put. It was a fun meet....lots of records broken. They have another track meet tomorrow and one on Saturday that they will both miss to shoot at the State Shooting Sports Match.

I am trying to get ready for Jeremy's graduation on May 10. If any of you have any awesome ideas or tips to make it more enjoyable or fun (or easier on Mom), please feel free to leave me your ideas! I have the buns ordered...pork loins ordered....mints ordered....cake ordered....beans bought....chips bought....bbq sauce bought....pickles bought....and my mother in law is making the potato salad. Still need to get the beverages bought. I am trying to make this as simple as possible so I can enjoy the day.

To make it easier for me I asked friends to help cook and serve. That frees you up to welcome the visitors as they come in. I think the hardest part is decorating. I had girls and they did that part. Good luck with your plans. This is an exciting time of a childs life.

Love and Hugs,

I like the idea of having some close friends doing the serving and refilling so you can be free to mingle more. I know you'll make if fun and full of memories for Jeremy. It seems like only yesterday I was going through this with my Josh, when in reality it was 3 years ago!

Sounds like you are pretty organized. I am sure you will have a great day! Nice prom pictures on the side of your blog! Do you have any outdoor games for people to play at graduation? That is always fun -
