The last week at the elementary was a busy one,with Red Ribbon Week and Halloween there was activities all week long. One was a balloon launch where we filled almost 400 red, white, and blue balloons to match the tie-dye shirts and let the kids release them all at once. They really enjoyed it, but wished the weather would have been warmer. We also held what we called a Pumpkin-Walk where the kids had decorated pumpkins according to themes, it was open to the public to come see and buy the pumpkins. We also held a Trick-or-Treat at the same time with light refreshments. It looked like everyone had a good time and we had a good turn out.
or lack of posts lately. It seems that I have been pretty busy lately, between all 4 schools, all 4 kids, and PTA I haven't had a lot of time lately. Today being a somewhat slower day I thought I'd try to get caught up on a few things.
First Football is now over-Hooray for me, not so much for Taylor :-(
Next: Dancing has just begun, this year DaNell's group has the chance to go to Disneyland and Perform, now we are struggling with whether we should let her go or not (Yes, I am a little over protective)
Schydi would like to start gymnastics and Leyton is still liking preschool and playing with brothers and sisters.
As for me I have been helping at the school a lot lately and have helped organize Red Ribbon Week next week. Here are some of the activities we planned, Tie-Dye T-Shirts, Crazy Hair Day, Crazy Sock Day, Hat day, we are doing a Balloon Launch will all 374 kids letting them all go at once, and a Talent Show. Hopefully I will have pics next week to share
Game 9 resulted in a loss for the Dolphins, but they did play a good game and only lost by 6 points. Taylor was very sad to see the season end and just couldn't part with his equipment just yet. He also wants to buy his jersey, so he can have it forever and forever. His biggest dilemma now is should he stay in Little League Football next year? Or should he play for the Jr. High team? OH......Decisions.....Decisions :-)
Field Goal Attempt. GOOD! Our kicker kicked it through the uprights, over then fence and cleared the road below. After that they made us kick our field goals on the other side of the field, away from the road =D
Dolphins vs. Emery (Castle Dale) resulted in a 20-16 Victory for the Dolphins! The 2 teams were pretty evenly matched, and it came down to Emery within 30 yards of scoring, but our awesome D was able to hold them :-)
Our last game is tonight at 7:30 vs the 49ers. Good Luck Dolphins!
Game 7 for the Dolphins was a disaster. With all that happened the day before the game, none of the boys were really up to playing the game. We had missed opportunities everywhere. I think they were all just trying too, too hard which resulted in a lot of confusion. I don't even know what the final score was, but it was not pretty.
The family of #32 did attend the game and told the boys thanks for all their support during this difficult time. The day after the game, was the funeral in which most of the football team attended, it was so great to see all the support they were not only for the family, but also for each other. They stuck together in a group through out the funeral and afterward they held their own moment of silence for #32. He will be missed by all that knew him.
Our next game is on Saturday at 1:30 vs. Emery. Here's hoping for a rebound for our team :-)
