Today has been a marathon of a day, and for Jacob it is still not over yet! We attended the big Polk County Family week kickoff celebration event over in Winter Haven this morning like we do every year, but this time I was running the 5K while Jacob was setting up our sound equipment for the event. I was there with the kids til 1:30pm, but in the mean time Jacob was coaching his high school soccer team at Winter Haven High School at noon. Then he came back by the event to grab Cindy and drive to Brandon to coach her team. After cleaning up at Polk Family week I then went to Brandon with all the sound equipment to watch Cindy's game. After eating dinner as a family afterward, Jacob then had to leave to DJ a Single Adult dance, also in Brandon, where he is at this exact moment. What a day! I am too tired to even blog about any of the details. So here is the telegram version of today's events and one day I might explain it all...

5K good. Too short. Placed first! Stop.

Cindy won essay contest. Stop. Too much prize money. Stop.

McKeel team tied. Now 1-1-3. Stop.

DeAnne is an angel. Stop. You already knew that. Stop.

Cindy's team lost. Strong performance for her. Very proud. Stop.

Been outside all day. Stop. Tired. Wind burnt. Exhausted. When will this day...Stop?

And here is the Turkey Hat picture of the day, which is taking all of my remaining energy to post. You're welcome :)

This is Denise, one of the hygienists who works in the dentist office with my mom. Taking this picture was almost painful for her because she says she NEVER has her picture taken. EVER. She says anytime someone takes one of her and then sends it to her, she deletes it. She says she hardly has any pictures of her at all. That makes me sad! Does anyone else do that? I hope not! I mean, come on, Denise, look at this picture! I can't think of a single reason you wouldn't want another human being to see it! But just to humor your crazy insecurities, this blog post will self-destruct in 30 seconds.

Those days are a pain but yet so satisfying when they are all done. I am glad you survived. Congrats on the 1st place finish! And yes, I think everyone who reads your blog knows how amazing DeAnne is. She's amazing!
