Freshmen were assigned to bring the drinks of course. We brought root beer and sprite. Sophomores brought salads. Juniors and Seniors brought desserts. There was a ton of food!
Here is Brady standing in the line for the buffet.
Hmmmm which piece of the chicken do I want?? Maybe a drum stick!
Look at all the yummy choices. There was lots of food and I waited until the last to fill my plate and there was still a ton of food (which is usually a shock at a potluck).
After all of our tummys were full, they showed a DVD of the season. It was great, so much fun and so many memories caught on DVD. It was even more fun because they made a DVD for each family!! Memories for a lifetime!!
Then each runner was recognized by our great coaches - Head coach Rusty, Asst Coach Bryce and Liz. The coaches are young and lots of fun for the kids. I loved that Coach Rusty put together a packet of each runners time during each meet and how they improved. It was fantastic!
Brady did not letter this year, but received a certificate. They gave out fun little gifts to each child who did not letter this year. Brady's fun little gift was silly putty and if you knew Brady you would know why. Brady is a hoot - he always is silly and keeps everyone laughing. When they started talking about the silly kid on the team - you could hear all the other runners say it's Brady.. We are a fun family - I hope he gets his light heartiness and silliness from me. That is truly the way to enjoy life. Brady has a very contagious laugh - in every class he has had through out the years it has been one thing that has always been commented about him (All teachers have really enjoyed Brady for this trait).
It was a great evening. I am very thankful for great coaches who give so much to lead and help these athletes! I am sure they don't make a bunch of money - and they spend a lot of extra time throughout the season sacrificing their life for these kids. I really appreciate them and all they have done for my son this year. It was a wonderful experience.
