My youngest has decided to give track a go. He is in 8th grade. This time last year he was wearing a boys size 14 slim pants, size 8 shoe, and was the shortest member of our 5 person family. Today he is wearing a size 27x32 pants (and those are getting to short)and wears a size 11 shoe. He is taller then all of us except his dad who is 6 foot (he passed up my 5 foot 8 inches a couple of months ago)
His sister played basketball, his brother is at college playing tennis and Jordan has decided he wants to play football and run track. I know nothing about track but I guess I will learn just like I learned about basketball and tennis.
It has been fun watching each individual child find their "thing".
I can't wait to see Jordan's long limbs in action today. He reminds me of a colt with his long body and limbs. He is surprisingly coordinated considering the rapid pace he has been growing. He is doing hurdles, the 100 and some jumping events.

Good luck to him! And have fun!

Earlier this year Riley mentioned track, but I just found out the season's already started so I guess he changed his mind!

Good luck to your son. Track can be fun to watch, but bring a chair for the long meets.

Yes we were dealing with puberty too. The voice change was a riot! He is such a funny, laid back kind of kid though he'd laugh about it too.
