First off let me say there WAS boot camp this week, and it was impossibly difficult while being ridiculously satisfying. However there was also work this week – and it was just impossibly difficult thus resulting in limited time for the boot blog.
For those of you that are curious, I have included a few highlights. Week 3 is done, and we are headed into our final week on Monday. Charles has made his way into the elite group of campers that are often sent for an extra lap while the rest of the group catches up. I am constantly frustrated by this – witch makes for excellent fuel. Next week, I will be pushing to be sent for an extra lap as well. We are both excited to finish the program out strong: and went to the park this morning to practice for next weeks final PT test.
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets had a game on Thursday and Charles prepared for the game by taking a day off work and hitting the golf course. He played a round with Moyer and finally achieved his goal of breaking 100 strokes. His round ended with an all time low of 92! Of course, he is already formulating a plan to put him in the 80’s. After this success, he and Moyer headed to campus and began tailgating for the game. Unfortunately the success on the course did not translate to Grant Field. The Jackets were defeated by the Hokies largely due to our own offense’s inability to adhere to the basic fundamentals of the game. The Jacket defense did a great job, after the first quarter, and kept the score close.
Thursday’s game marked the 100 year anniversary of Grant Filed, and Georgia Tech lit up halftime with a fireworks celebration. They also had 6 decades of Georgia Tech players on the field to honor the men that have given Bobby Dodd Stadium purpose for the last century. It was a very nice tribute to the field and the players. I am glad we were there to witness and join in the celebration.
Weekend plans include, boot camp homework, putting the final touches on the bathroom today, and going to the FOX with my parents to see STOMP. The show is an all male cast of dancing and percussion using unorthodox instruments such as broom sticks, garbage cans, and matchbox’s. It is a family favorite and we are excited to introduce Charles to the show.
