I went to Cole's track meet last week only to see this girl walking towards me in a uniform...
Turns out everyone in my family had been keeping this little secret so Courtney could surprise me at the first track meet of the season.
I like those kind of secrets.
Even the coach was in on it.
Turns out, she's doing shot put.
And this guy was doing long-jump.
He wore a pair of shorts (with paint on them) over his track shorts (because he thinks they're too short), but (conveniently) forgot to take them off prior to his event.
And he did the 800 too.
This was my first time photographing a track meet, which was new and fun, except it was also the first time my kids had very specific requests about what I photographed and what I didn't photograph, which was equally new, but not so much fun.
Of the things I've learned at the ripe ole' age of 41 though, it's that there's no sense fighting 'new' because its a guarantee in this funny little thing called life.
