The 4 X 400 relay is my favorite track & field event – There is speed, teamwork and passing of the baton.

One dad found himself caught up in on

The professor had a jar of rocks on his desk. He asked his students if the jar was full. There was a resounding “Yes!” Then he pulled out a jar of pebbles and poured them in the jar. As the pebbles sifted in around the larger rocks, he presented the same question to the class. This time the response was, “Absolutely this time!” Then the professor produced a jar of sand and proceeded to pour the contents into the original jar. Again, the sand settled in around the larger rocks and pebbles and he posed the question one more time. The class said, “We think so.”

Finally, the professor produced a on
