    with Ben coaching all 4 of our kids and their teams!

    We started at 8:30 and finished at 2:30 – but really left the house at 8 and didn’t get home until 3:45  — LONG DAY. BUt it was fun and the kids all played hard.

    Rosie and the Red Racers! HER FIRST GAME! She got one goal! and she played AMAZING DEFENSE! IT was awesome to watch her run back on D and stop the other tean from scoring 🙂

    Cali is on the Nacho’s. She is a natural out there. She seems to have fun and it’s fun to see her wanting to pass and not just be kicking randomly.


    Benji’s team is still most of the same guys from when they were 5 and 7 years old. These big kids are fun to watch and BENj was SOOOO close to a goal.

    Packer played some good soccer. He and Luca ran like crazy at forward. I think their team even won!


    Ice Cream for Rosie’s GOAL!

    just my favorite pictures of the week:


    Raymond has been SOOO tired – he refuses to nap 🙁 Here he is pouting about something ridiculous…


    Rose and Raymond are doing lots of “homework” and learning. Rose has online preschool so Ray does it with her and then they found the ABC magnets. Learning is Good – and tiring 🙂


    Playing with Brady’s new puppy.


    CheeseHeads for all 7 kids! FOOTBALL IS HERE!!


    Millie is not our best soccer game watcher – she is a handful.


    We had to replace the tree in the front of our house- it was half dead and struggling so here is our new Maple.


    Ready to watch some BYU football – (yes, we fell asleep) boo for late games, yeah for last minute game winners.


    Music class at the library – Millie loved it!

    And Today was the fun run. It was rainy BUT it wasn’t too cold. Ben and the 6 kids ran 2.25 miles while I ate Waffle Luv and chilled with Tiago. Then we all ate and chilled for the night.

    Millie Turned 2!!

    No Comments


    Millie Marie is 2 years old! She is crazy and spunky and full of energy. She teases and dances. She copies her siblings and thinks she is as big as them. She wanders away from her parents and has no fear. Millie can make us giggle and then want to pull out our own hair all in one minute. She’s our spunky girl.

    She is in the cheesy learning how to smile stage!! love it. She was so excited to get soo much attention from all of us throughout the day 🙂

    We opened presents in the afternoon when the kids got home from school. She enjoyed opening and seemed to like everything: minnie mouse, flashlight, tea set, a bath toy, and a sand/water table:

    rose and Ray helped her try out the water table. It was a super hot day. At one point Millie came in and got her swim suit so she could sit in her new water table 🙂

    Millie loves her Ago Baby…

    Then Monique invited us over to swim for the evening! These kids love to swim and the hot tub is always a hit:

    Tiago cooperated and chilled while we swam – here he is doing his chew on his blanket trick.

    When Brady got home from work we sang and had cake and Ice Cream and called it a night.

    Labor Day Camp Out

    No Comments

    the boys put out this sign to deter others from camping near us 🙂 We did have 7 siblings up there.

    The kids were looking forward to camping. And Brady got the party bus ready for the trip:

    We went camping in Fairview Canyon near Potters Pond. It was a 2 and 1/2-3 hour drive fighting labor day traffic on Friday evening. We got to camp around 9pm and it was already dark but… Joel and Megan were there waiting for us and we got our tent set up and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows and waited for Ryans family to come and Brady and Mo and C-way and it was great fun.

    Saturday was great. THE KIDS PLAYED HARD. There were lots of fallen trees and things to explore and they had a blast with cousins. Ryan brought his girlfriend and 3 kids so they got to know them a little better also. It was a little cold and windy but we kept busy at camp. A friend of Brady’s brought some 4 wheelers up so we had fun on those. Ben listened to the BYU/Nebraska game in the car and it ended up being a miracle win for the Cougs!

    Camping is So much work BUT SO much fun!
