Thank you so much to everyone who made Happy First Birthday messages and sent them in for the free session. It was so much fun looking at all of them! The poems and drawings were really cute and we appreciate all the thought that went into the entries. We have contacted the winners and dad is so excited for Thursday.
Our first winner was Katie who has a one year old herself! She is expecting her second baby and sent in this picture:
We thought the ribbons hanging off of balloons on her decorated belly were too cute and picked Katie’s belly as the winner of the free session.
We had a few people send emails but they forgot to include themselves in the picture or they forgot to send a picture at all. One of the emails we received was from the BRHS soccer team. It was such a cute email!
We wanted to wish you a happy 1st birthday! As high school athletes, and super-cool seniors we want you to enjoy the day and eat as much cake as possible….it’s the only time in your life that chubby checks and thunder thighs are adorable! So go ahead and get pinched and recognize the fact that being adorable is absolutly fabulous-but just because your growing older doesn’t mean that you can’t always act like a kid…we certainly do!
We know what anticipation feels like since we have been waiting for three years to win our soccer district tournament. Our sophmore year we lost in a double overtime to a penality kick-we were absolutely heartbroken! Our junior year we lost during the final game, in the pouring rain, because a cheap shot slid (literally because of the rain) through our goalie’s hands-again we were heartbroken to lose with such a cheap shot! It is now our senior year and we have trained, ran, done ball skills, designed tshirts, tie dyed with our team, held our heads high and continued to pursue-we just HAVE to win districts this year.
Not only is it our senior year, but our coach (Coach Pic) has declared this as her last year as well. She used to be the reading coach at our school but took a job with Duke TIP. After some begging and pleading, and some more begging…she said that she would coach us our senior year. (well minus two weeks while she is in Australia for her honeymoon). Needless to say she allows us to act like kids, has fun with us and lets us know that how important the memories that we create that are important.
So hopefully we will win the competetion, cross your cute little chubby fingers, and we will have some silly, crazy, outragous photos to get framed alongside our district champs trophy as memories of our senior year & first ever Braden River High School district win!!!!! Like our coach says “it’s the memories along the way that make it worthwhile!”
So, enjoy your 1st little birthday, and never forget to act silly…..”it’s the memories along the way that make it worthwhile”
Unfortunately they forgot to attach their pictures. The coach sent them in after the deadline, but once we saw their pictures we knew we had to make an exception and have two winners! This group looks like they totally meet the description of energetic, nice, fun, up for anything people which is just what we asked for!
The cake says, “Your 1st Birthday, Our 1st Districts”
We think they should have dunked the cake on coach’s head Gatorade style
Thursday is going to be a fun day! Be sure to check back for pictures!
