    Wrestling Season

    No Comments

    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.

    First Practice:

    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.

    Escape Room

    No Comments

    For Nathaniel’s Birthday we went out to Rockwell’s Ice Cream and then to an escape room! We had never done one and we had a blast. We solved it with 5 seconds to spare! Than, Erica, Kyle, Becca and us. There were 2 times that we had it figured out but just had problems actually opening the lock – otherwise we would have dominated πŸ™‚

    RSL date night

    Date Night!

    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 πŸ™‚ 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.

    Motorcycle Dad Night

    No Comments

    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!

    Fathers Day!

    No Comments

    We spent the morning hanging with Ben, eating cinnamon rolls and getting ready for church. I failed because I let Ben take Tiago to nursery and that resulted in a blow out and change of clothing at home πŸ™ oops. But that didn’t phase “the dad”. He is their Super Hero. He is the Fun in our crazy house and we all love spending time with him.

    After church I chatted with my Dad for a few minutes and then we headed for to spend time with Ben’s Dad. We got to visit with Mark and Kari during dinner! and then Millie made sure Grandpa got all of his presents and she made sure that we all knew about her ear infection. I am grateful to be surrounded by wonderful Priesthood worthy Fathers!
