Welcome to Prarie Pi. This blog exists to journal and document the memories that our family experiences. Pi is "an amount of type that has been jumbled or thrown together at random." We hope to assemble in words and pictures the daily thoughts and activities that happen in our household. We do this to help those that are distant from us get a glimpse into our days so that the miles that separate us won't keep us apart.

Track Meet

It's Crazy Days around here. From what we can gather, it's 10 days of fun, merriment and lots of activities for all the residents to enjoy. Wednesday night was a track meet for ages 7-12......not overly attended, but well put on by the people in charge. Our first summer event ever in our new state, we ventured out in the hot weather to fully immerse ourselves in the local culture and to check out the running competition.

Moe had fun. 1st place in softball throw. (No 2nd or 3rd place awarded) 1st place in the 400yd dash. (because of no other participants, he got to race in the girl division) 1st place in the 50yd dash. (One 2nd place awarded....tight race) 1st place in the 200yd dash.....this race had more kids to run against.

All in all, it was our family trying something new. Something we're trying to do more of these days. Waiting patiently for new faces to become faces we recognize............knowing that we need to venture out on outings such as these to make everything and everyone seem more familiar.......realizing that this process is a marathon, not a sprint.

Have a blue ribbon day,


  1. Way to go, Cole!! I guess the track culture just hasn't caught on in IL like it has in SD.

  2. good job moe - the PRO!!!!

  3. "Waiting patiently for new faces to become faces we recognize............"

    With performances like that, it won't take long for those FACES to start recognizing YOU!
