    Chilly rainy morning, in the darkness we are packing up the car and will head off to sons first paddling race of the season......I am on the teeter-totter of life, pushing the sad thoughts away about my two and ready to cheer my boy on.
    It is all very strange......nevertheless....
    A good distraction.

    Son has worked hard with his crew mates all of these weeks of training.
    It is awesome to see young ones in high school working towards a goal....

    Go boy go.......Have a good day CD ohana

    Whew, it was a long windy, rainy, sometimes sunny, day.

    I am happy to say that Son and his two crews did very well, Third overall with the boys crew, and First overall, in the mixed crew.

    Yay, it is nice to have some good news to share!
    This was Sons first taste of distance racing, and he loved it.

    Best Christmas present yet, the big grin on his face.....

    Thanks so much for your good wishes
