Reed's Track Meet

As a chronically overwhelmed person, I recently made what I hope is a life changing discovery. To be more (or at least to feel more) successful I need to set smaller goals. Not just small goals, but really small goals. There is nothing more discouraging then reflecting on all the amazing things you planned to do and didn't. Being an amazing and frequent family blogger is one of those amazing things I've been planning to do for a while now and have failed miserably at. It's been over a year since I wrote anything and much longer since I wrote regularly. I have grand plans, but those grand plans never seem to get off the ground--so I'm making an adjustment. I am removing the grand and replacing it with small. My goal is to complete this entire post. If these words made their way to our blog, then it's time to break out the ticker tape because I was successful. Hooray! Here's to more small successes in the future. 

(I know my last post was about a Reed event, but so is this one. I guess that's one of the perks of being the oldest.)

Last month Reed had the opportunity to participate in the district middle school track meet. The schools just  finished their track unit in P.E. and had a little track meet during class. The top two finishers in each event got to be apart of the big meet. Reed doesn't really have any track experience outside of  what he learned in P.E, but he didn't seem nervous about the event at all. (I, however made up for this by worrying the entire time I waited for his race to be called.)


We lucked out and the track meet happened to be scheduled on a day that both of my parents were already planning to be here. Not so lucky was the fact that it also happened to be the first really hot day of the year, so it was more than just my nerves that had us sweating it out as we waited.

Sometimes Ruby likes to be my photographer.  She's getting better. Most of my head made it into this one.

She's still working on her photography, but she's got her cheering all figured out.

Reed was running the 800, which was 2 times around the track. Without a lot of training I was worried he would burn out, but I'm happy to report that he was able to stay middle of the pack the whole time.



These pictures don't show it, but we had another enthusiastic cheerleader on the sidelines. "Go Reed!, Go Reed!"


 I think he felt pretty good about things when it was all over. Hot and tired, but good.

I love how Ruby is quick to love. After a 2-year absence it didn't take much time at all for her to cozy up with Grandfather.


After the race Reed saw a friend from his elementary school that was now attending a neighboring middle school. He made the effort to track him down and say hello. I think I was equally proud of his effort there as I was of his run.




It's always nice to have your brother cheering you on too.

As well as out-of-town supporters.









 I may look like a boy in this picture, but, for a picture with Reed, I will take it.

For a 6th grade track and field career that lasted all of two minutes, it was good one.

In contrast to mainstream Arab opinion,Cheap Jordan Shoes, King Abdullah opposed the creation of a Palestinian state and wanted Transjordan to take possession of any Palestinian terrirory that he could obrain through either negotiations or war the Transjor-danian monarch correspondingly became involved in negotiations with leaders of the Jewish community in Palestine prior to the formation of the Israeli state. Ever pragmatic, King Abdullah entered into discussions with the future Israeli leadership regarding the possible disposition of the Palestinian territory evacuated by the United Kingdom under a forthcoming UN resolution. King Abdullah at one point seemed willing to divide the disputed territory between Transjordan and the new Jewish state without war, and a conditional agreement was reached with Jewish Agency envoy Golda Mcycrson (later Golda Mcir) on this approach. In making this agreement,Retro Jordans, the king seemed primarily concerned with the potential ro expand his kingdom beyond its impoverished beginnings and transform I'ransjordan into a larger and more viable srare.

In response to increased intcrcommunal fighting in Palestine and pressure from other Arab states, Abdullah later revised his negotiating position to favor Transjordan assuming control of all former Palestinian territory with autonomy and strong civil protections for the Jews living there. Phis offer was unacceptable to the Jewish community,jordan releases, which sought a fully independent state. Following rhe breakdown in Jewish Agcncy-Transjordanian negotiations, pressures for war increased as Palestine's Jewish and Arab communities became locked in increasingly violent conflict. A variety of Arab states prepared to invade the disputed territory as soon as rhe British departed in order to prevent the establishment of the Israeli state. While many Arab leaders expected a rapid victory against Palestine's Jews,Jordans for sale, Abdullah was more realiscic. He entered inco the 1948-49 war only with reluctance and caution after the breakdown of negotiations with Jewish leaders in the full understanding that military cooperation among Arab countries was extremely poor. Abdullah was named as rhe Arab Leagues overall military commander in the war, but this appointment was largely a symbolic gesture since none of the other Arab militaries were willing to be directed by Transjordanian leaders.
