Today is St. Paddy's Day!!!
This morning my little brother Daniel went and ran the Shamrock Run Downtown... 5 miles and his time was 40:56. He got first place in the 11 and under age group. And he received a glass beer mug... :)

On Monday our family got 12 duck eggs. Which are in incubator in my mom and dad's room. It should be fun to see them hatch, and when we have 12 little ducks running around our house, you should all come and see them. :)

EDIT: I also got a xanga site :) go here

And I have more good news, my divisional swim meet went really well! I didn't make the state cut, but I made it back to finals Saturday afternoon in the 200 breaststroke and then ended up getting 6th place and receiving a medal. It was very exciting, though when I came home I was really tired... and I had to miss Allen's party. :( Sorry Allen!
