Soccer ended on the 28th and Wrestling started on the 30th!
The big boys go to practice Monday – Thursday – 4:30-6:30. Ray signed up this year and he goes Tues and Thurs from 6:30-7:30. So besides the lack of family dinner time its fun to have them pushing themselves and working hard.
After practice wrestling:
Raymonds first tournament! Check in. Go. 2 point reversal. Get him on his back. He WINS!
I like to come and watch and the kids come and “watch” or play toys, or color, or eat, or wander around and make friends…
Ray’s 2nd match was really hard and he cried in the middle and didn’t want to finish but he stuck it out. And beat the next 2 guys and ended up with a 1st place out of the 5!
Benji was at a BYU Pow Wow so he didn’t get to wrestle in this tournament.
Packer worked hard but got beat all 3 times. He stayed tough and never got pinned! 4th place for him.
These guys are buddies. They are opposites in a lot of ways but they get each other and they stick up for each other. They do most things together around here. I love it.
First Day of School 2017
These kids are growing up! !st, 3rd, 5th, 7th!
I love that these guys are best friends!
Benji saying goodbye as he catches carpool to Jr High and Rose saying hello to the big 1st grade all day school!
Cousins! This is the morning crew – the rest of the neighbors are on B track this year.
Benji is done with 11 year old Scouts! We just had a court of Honor and he got his Tenderfoot and 2nd Class. He has only a few more requirements to get his 1st class and he earned his first merit badge: First Aid.
Benji got called up to teach the bowline knot and then they had a race. Ben won. Benji took 2nd.
Packer finally received his Bear badge and we had a fun game of water kickball.
Rose got to go to school from 9:15-1:15 and visit all of the 1st grade classrooms and teachers. She loved it! Benji got to be her and Ellie’s 6th grade buddy! He loved it. Rose loved walking home with all the neighborhood kids.
This year they didn’t get split into their new classes and see who their new teacher might be so… we all just have to wait to find out. We are getting a new Principal and Vice Principal this next year so…
Ray is getting excited to go to Kindergarten!
Benji, Packer and Cali had their 1st piano recital!
Benji played William Tell Overture, Packer played Twinkle Twinkle and Cali played Yankee Doodle.
