california surfin

this past saturday
tyler had the ISF state championships
(interscholastic surfing federation)
middle schools from up and down the coast of california showed up in oceanside, ca for the contest

ty placed second in his first heat 
but then went up against a bunch of 8th graders who were sponsored in his second heat...
 and came in 5th (out of 6)
he had a blast though and we couldn't be prouder!

getting the pep talk from dad before his second heat

waiting for his heat to start

i spent a while talking to ty's coach, mr. parry 
and coach parry said that ty is probably the second best on the team
we are so thankful that he is on the team and that he has been able to surf in the contests since he's the 'new kid'... we're also very thankful that he has made so many friends so far - apparently they've been fighting over him - how cute is that? AND coach parry told me that the girls have been fighting over who gets to sit by him in one of his classes.... man, that's scary!

i hope you all had a great weekend
and are enjoying your night 


ps. tomorrow is two things i love... around my home - i hope you come back and link on up!

Must be a joy to have amazing/talented kiddos! I'm 23 and have never surfed. I was too young to go (according to the folks) while Brandi was doing it in high school and since then I don't think we have really lived in the same town. I want to learn soooo bad. GREAT JOB TY! I love when kids have a passion early on.

surfing as a school sport, how very 90210-ish of you ;)
Just kissing, that is awesome. I am just jealous we couldn't have surfing in Ohio. Looks like a fun day!
