State Wrestling Tournament was January 26th and 27th! I went and watched Packer wrestle on Friday. Ben and Grandpa Netty cheered and coached. He wrestled 5th-6th Grade bracket, 60-64 lbs. His first match up was against the guy that won the bracket. Packer survived the first round and then he got pinned. His 2nd guy pinned him in the first round 🙁 Packer was excited to be there though and proud of his hard work and improvement.
Benji wrestled early Saturday morning. I wasn’t there to take pictures 🙁 I decided to go to the Temple with Shannon instead) Ben and Grand[a Netty were there. He wrestled in the 7th, 8th, 9th grade bracket at 104-108. He got beat pretty bad on both of his match ups.
Ray wrestled Saturday evening in the Kindergarten 40-43 bracket. They did a round robin and he beat all 3 guys! He pinned the first 2 and then won by points on the last one! Ben and I and Grandpa Netty and Michelle and Udine were there to watch.
Carol and Larry made me a TETHER BALL!! They had one in their backyard so I’ve been begging for one. I told them I’m good for the money to cover the cost and they came through and delivered it the first weekend in January!!
Ben wanted to build a workshop area in the basement but we never communicated that to the contractor doing the basement. Ben’s Dad got word of it and talked with Ben and HE BUILT IT! It fit like a glove and looks great. Ben was so excited to organize his tools like his dad does 🙂
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.
The Arcading is still goin strong:

High Score wars:
I love these little turkeys but sometimes a night away is just what I need! I took them to the pet store while we waited for the tires to get changed on the van 🙂 They love to do stuff like this with me but I love to do those errands on my own as my free time. They weren’t the best listeners this day but we survived and I’m glad I let them come along.
Millie was so excited to go out with Dad!
On his Motorcycle!
To get a treat!
She got a new special seat belt harness to keep her on tight and I love when kids are still figuring out the THUMBS UP sign.
They stopped for a treat and played at the park. Millie was in HEAVEN – the girl loves attention, she thrives on one on one time. LOve her spunkyness!
