Archive for December, 2010

With all the rain, I have not been able to get out and go riding.  I have been hanging with friends and playing with all the new stuff I got from Christmas.  What a great Christmas!

My family got tons of great things.  I got some dirt bike toys, some bicycle flip tricks, new Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, clothes, FMF jacket, and remote control toys.  Thank you to everyone.  I also got a new tool box and frig that fits perfectly in my “man cave.”

After we were done with all the gifts under the tree, my parents had one more surprise for the family.  We first had to go on a scavenger hunt.  Each clue lead us to another clue that lead us to another one and so on.  The hunt ended on the front porch, but the next game was just beginning.  Each of us now had to follow our colored yarn through the neighbor’s yard and down the street until we found the end.  The game started off fun, but I very quickly got tired and just wanted to see what was at the end…it was worth the wait.  At the end of my string was a new 18″ custom pink bicycle, it is so awesome!

Everyone had a great time.

GOODBYE NICK!

My new brother-in-law Nick has joined the Army and left for boot camp December 28th.  We got to go see him get sworn into the Army and watch him leave, it was very official and totally cool.  He will be in Missouri for about 9 weeks and we can’t even talk to him on the phone.  After he gets settled we should be able to get his address and send him letters but that is it.  I am really going to miss him and can’t wait till he gets home.  The whole family is very proud of him and really excited for him to come back home.

Although we DVR all the races, It is always really cool to see the event live when the pro’s are in town.  I have been very lucky to meet all my favorite riders.  When we go to the Supercross and Motocross races I love going into the pits and talking to the riders, they have been so nice.  I can’t wait until it is me and all of you come to see me ride and are watching me on TV.  Thought you might like to see a few pictures of my time in the pits at the last few races I went to.

GRADUATION DAY

Posted: December 19, 2010 in Family Info
Tags: , ,

This weekend my sister Elyssa graduated from college.  She went to Sacramento State University and we went to her graduation ceremony.  The whole family screamed so loud when they called her name, and my sister Hailey had a really load air horn.  When we saw her after I sprayed her with silly string, it was totally cool.

 I can’t believe she doesn’t have to go to school anymore….she is so lucky. 

The whole family was so proud of her and everyone was so happy.  Way to go Elyssa!!!

This is a great video of a 65cc race at Oatfield Raceway in Turlock.  9 Bikes went out in the first gate and I was in the second gate with 7 other bikes.

I got a great start and was able to get the hole shot and stay out front.  You will see me passing some bikes, but these are kids not racing in my class.

On the second lap I took a hard fall.  By the time I was able to get up and get my bike going the second and third place riders were able to catch me and took over the lead.

On the third and fourth laps the yellow bike #10, Jeremy Ryan, and I battled back and forth several times for the lead.

On the fifth and final lap I was able to walk away with the win.

It was a great battle, and you will be able to see that the track was really rough.  What a fun race!

Back in school from the Thanksgiving Holiday and back to a routine.  It is a little hard to plan to far in advance when I am going dirt bike riding, because it really depends on the rain.  😦  It seems like when I think I might go riding it is raining or has rained too much to go.  How much longer till summer time?

I got my report card from school.  My parents were so happy with me because I am doing very good in school.  They like it when my homework is all turned in and I get good grades on my math, and my spelling is getting better (no spell check in class).  My family is also very happy with my behavior in class.  I got really good marks and my teacher told them that I am good in class. Yah!  Over break the family went bowling to celebrate my great report card……Hailey won, but I came in second.

My teacher recommended I start reading Diary Of A Wimpy Kid books.  I don’t really like to read a lot, unless it is about a dirt bikes, but this book was really good.  I could not put the book down and I had to keep reading to see what was going to happen next.

As you can see….the book is really funny and I can totally relate….. 🙂
