Rilee was on the swim team this year, and ended up swimming the longest race, the 500 free. It's 20 pool lengths, and she was 12th at regionals, and moved up to 10th after finals. Sadly, they only took the top 8 to state competition. Next year!
And of course we have soccer. Usually 5 games on Saturday. Today we just had 1. Cole played Thursday, the girls played Friday night and Jase didn't play today. Anyway here is Delaney taking charge of throwing the ball back in the game. Notice how they run after the ball no matter what position they play?
Here is Clay enjoying the game. This is a very rare shot of Clay sitting still. This never happens.
Jase went to Home Coming with Jessica and a bunch of friends. They all went in the van, went to dinner and then to the dance. They had a great time. Crazy that he is this old and doing these things. Check out the shoes on Jase. Grandpa Dave's old top siders, yes light blue, dark blue and white. Jase took them last time in California, thinks they are the coolest shoes in the world.
Last but not least, Clay has learned a new trick. Escaping from the crib. Here we go...The other night he woke up, got out and ran into the door of his room because it was dark. So now we make sure the door is wide open.
Just some of our events this last weekend. Always something going on. I know there is a lot going on in your lives too. Just remember to cherish the moments. It's hard sometimes since we are focused on income and diffenent things. Don't take advantage what we have in life. Have a good week.
I found this on the camera, and just had to share with you what we get on a daily basis around here. Never a dull moment. It's funny, one minute they are bugging each other and picking at each other, and the next they do things like this and look like they are best friends. Hope you enjoy.
And the oldest geek of the family was a cheerleader for the powder puff football game. I thought I had a better picture of him showing his socks and shorts, but you can get the idea what he looked like with the headband.
Here you go, our oldest in action. Wow what a great bunch of fun kids. We are so proud! I look forward to your comments.
And here he is again...
night with the Monsons. Then went to Manti, then on up to Provo. Went to the Provo Temple, then
the next day to Mt. Timpanogus, Jordan River, and Salt Lake City. Then on Saturday they went
to conference to the afternoon session. Then the boys went to Priesthood session. lots of fun and
320 baptisms. Grandpa Dave did all the baptisms and didn't complain. Actually he only complained
about the kids at night not going to bed, and having ice fights.
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for a great trip!
At the Conferenct Center
BYU and Salt lake City in the rain
Just having some fun! This is one of those times 6 kids is a good number!!!
Can someone tell me how to get the pictures side by side instead of one on top of the other. I just shoot from the hip on this stuff.
So an update on the diet...I did it for 8 days. I was supposed to do it for 10 but couldn't take it anymore. I craved the taste of something other than lemonaid! Funny thing is I really was never hungry from not eating since the lemonaid fills you up, but my sense of smell was increased and I could smell all kinds of great smells and they were always from food. So I got back to food. For the first day however, my food was orange juice instead of lemonaid. On the second day, dinner was soup broth, soup from scratch, which was all vegies no meat. Third day was back to food and I had a burrito which gave me heart burn. Anyway, I'm back to all food now, but I don't drink soda anymore and I'm trying to cut out the fast food. Good experience!
So two more days off and the kids will be back in school. Sometimes these breaks are too long. It messes up our getting up time and going to bed time.
All are invited to our yearly Halloween party at our house. Also, we are staying here for Thanksgiving again this year, and extend an invite to any family in California that would like to come out and stay with us. This is unoficial, but it's extended to everyone. Amy and Ken are going to Utah, and I'm not sure what Jillian and Todd are doing. We heard some talk that some people would like to come out, so we are inviting.
Have a good week all!
Well, the kids have 2 weeks off for fall break, so we went to California. Mainly to take the van to my Mom and Dad. They took our 4 oldest and a cousin to Utah to go to conference. On the way they went to several temples and did baptisms at each one they visited. Thanks Mom and Dad, awesome trip! So Robin, Delaney and Clay stayed in Brea and visited family and friends and went to Sea World. Me...what did I do...oh yeah, I drove out with them and stayed a couple days and flew home. Someone has to work so they can play! Can I tell you, I was bored to death. While being bored, I decided to take Uncle Jimmy's challenge to do the Master Cleanse and cleanse my body. I have gone 6 days with no food, except for a special lemonade and herbal tea. The tea is called "Smooth Move", I will let you figure out what it's for. So, I have lost about 8 pounds, my sense of smell is much more sensitive, and I crave food. Strangely I am not really hungry, just crave tastes. Oh well, I'm trying to do it for 10 days. Jimmy just finished and did it for 18 days. Crazy.
Everyone add Delaney's new blog to your list. She is very excited and would love comments.
