September Sports

September was back-to-school and we were full force with sports as well. 

Kyler is playing on the High School Team. #52
Trevin is the QB for the 6th grade team. #15
 And Kelly is coaching BOTH teams (HS & 6th grade)!
 Kierstyn is the setter for the 8th grade (Jr. High) volleyball team. #2
Every single night of the week (except Sunday) we have at least 1 practice or game. Busy, busy!

Homecoming 2014

The kids had fun dressing up all week but somehow I only managed a picture one day: Neon Day.
All the kids were in the parade on Friday. Kyler with the HS football team, Trevin with his Little League football team, & Kierstyn with the Jr. High volleyball team. Small town parades are one of my favoritest things ever!

 We played our toughest opponent of the season for Homecoming….but our boys pulled through. It poured during halftime of the JV game but as soon as the 3rd quarter started the rain stopped and there was a HUGE rainbow. 
The JV won 46-20.  The Varsity game was much closer. The other team went up 12-0 in the first few minutes but our boys played hard and came back to win 38-32! There were lots of happy Trojans on Friday night.

Kierstyn turns 14!

My beautiful baby girl is 14! What a privilege it is to be her mother. She makes the world a much better, more colorful, & louder place! ;)
Kierstyn decided to forego a big birthday party and went to the movies with 3 friends after her volleyball game. We had her birthday dinner the day before (roast beef, mashed potatoes & gravy, corn casserole). We invited the Clarks & the Matthews over for strawberry shortcake.

I love you, baby girl!

Random August happenings…

Kierstyn was hard at work planning her birthday party (a month ahead of time) :)
 A screen-free day that found Kierstyn and Trevin dabbling in some interesting makeup concoctions
 Trevin and baby Wil at the Cassia County Fair parade
 the long-awaited day arrived….Kyler is legal and my insurance premium sky-rocketed!
Just a Sunday afternoon photo shoot of my beauty in her new dress
 At Trevin's football jamboree modeling the new RRHS sweatshirts that the Booster Club is selling this year
 Go Trojans! Go #15!
 This girl got BRACES! (8/28)
 Last hurrah of the summer….trip to the Ogden temple open house, bought a new car, haircuts, mini golf, & shopping in Utah
 Checking one more thing off Kierstyn's summer bucket list--movie (well, tv show) marathon

In celebration of mine and Kierstyn's birthdays we went to Salt Lake to see Wicked!!!!!! It was seriously one of THE most amazing things I've ever seen!  If I used every positive adjective in the dictionary it wouldn't come close to explaining how awesome it was.

We made a stop at Trader Joe's specifically for my favorite Dark Chocolate Sea Salt almonds….and they were ALL GONE! Boo!
