  About Me

Hi! My name is Dimitri Joseph Woolley, but sometimes I am called Dema, as a nickname.  I was born in Kazakhstan in the year 2000. I lived in an orphanage for 2 years prior to my mama and papa adopting me in July of 2006. I am glad to be in a family and to have a brother, a grandmother, and a dog living with me. I am still learning English since I grew up speaking Russian in Kazakhstan. I am enjoying America very much. I love being a part of YMCA (especially their Aquatics camp) during the summer. I also like going to school, having completed both Kindergarten through 3rd grade, and I also like going to Sunday school at Victorious Life Church. There are lots of friendly people at this church.

My Running Races
On my 8th birthday, I finished a 5K race (3.1 miles) in 30 minutes and 21 seconds!
This was my very first 5K race. I placed first in my age group and won this chicken in a raffle!
I also competed in a mini-decathlon and tied for first place in my age group. What a day!
My father was so proud of me! (He was so excited and intent on watching my events that he forgot that he was not wearing a cap in the hot sun. His head got sunburned bad!)

My 1st Golf Game

After spending a  week  learning to play golf at the Pebble Creek Country Club, I played my 1st golf game with my dad at the Lutz Executive Golf Course. Each hole was a par 3, and I managed to get a bogie on hole number 6! My dad says I played real good.

Video of Dimitri's first golf game bogey - scoring 4 on a par 3 hole!
