Game 2 resulted in another loss for Wellington. So now we get a day off then it's back to practice tomorrow and on to another tournament on July 12th in Nephi again. I don't have all the specifics yet, but will let you know when I do. I still have faith in our team and believe they can do well in the next tournament. GOOD LUCK WELLINGTON!
Game 1 of the All-Star Tournament turned out not so well for our boys. We lost by a lot. Taylor did manage to be the only player to hit and make it safely to 1st base, and only allowed 3 stolen bases. Today is a new day and we get to play again at 4:00 in Ferron we don't know who we play but will be going in with our heads held high. Here's hoping for a better outcome today! Good Luck Boys :-D
This past weekend turned out to be quite productive. Friday we went walking, then came back and did a bunch of yard and housework, we cooked stuffed green peppers in the dutch oven for dinner, they turned out really well. On Saturday we stayed at home, doing yet some more housework and I managed to finish my project I had started on earlier in the week (at least the quilt top is finished) I still have to put it together with the cotton and backing. Then I began another project, making a summer dress for Schydi, I was able to finish it on Sunday and it fits her pretty well. We also worked on painting some more in Taylor's Chargers/Nike room here are a few pics. Any suggestions on the quilt, should I quilt it or just tie it?
During the week Schydi and I have been making progress on the new project we started. We went from over 340 cut pieces to 49 completed blocks, and the rest cut for the borders. All that is left is to set it all together and quilt!
Friday afternoon we took a drive up Huntington Canyon and roasted us some hot-dogs and made Smores. The weather was nice and I managed only 2 pics. (I forgot the memory card in the camera)It was a nice outing. The kids tried to get wet in the river, but decided the water was way too cold. They really enjoyed the Smores. Can't wait to go camping!
Over the weekend I decided it was time for a new sewing project, I managed to cut out the pieces and plan on starting to sew it together today....Wish me Luck I hope it turns out how I have it pictured in my head!
The weekend here was a fairly busy one, Saturday we went to the Helper Outlaw Car Show to check out the cars. The kids enjoyed looking at the cars new and old, Taylor manned the camera for most of it, his favorites were the Corvette, Mustang, and a Special Truck dedicated to 9-11. After the car show we went and checked out the Railroad and Mining Museum, they are working hard on expanding this one, the kids liked the Caboose sitting outside and the cannons the best. After the museum, we went back to Grandpa's where we grilled burgers, steaks, Keilbasa, and hotdogs for lunch. Yum...Thanks Grandpa and Grandma :-D The kids played in the Sprinkler at Grandpa's too, they had a blast! After that we had another Party to go to for a nephew, it was a nice visit and the cake and Ice Cream was good too. After we returned home, we were all pretty tired. On Sunday, I started with making a pineapple upside-down cake, cooked hashbrowns in the dutch oven, and made eggs and toast to go with it. Schydi told me that the potatoes are usually good, but this time they were, "more gooder"....Thanks Schy! Next it was off again to make the rounds. We went to Elmo to visit, then into Price, and back to Wellington. We decided to go watch the new Jonah Hex movie that just opened on the 18th. A couple of the kids stayed in Elmo so it was just the 4 of us, we all enjoyed the movie, pretty action packed, but also pretty short. Taylor's favorite part was all of the one's with Megan Fox in them ;-) All in all, it was a nice weekend. I think I will need a couple of days to recover.....Yeah, right......it's back to Baseball practice every day. Hopefully they have the when and where the boys start playing so I can make plans.
We have taken a couple short road trips this year, one was to the Great Hunter Panel in 9-Mile Canyon, and the other to Scofield fishing. They caught a bunch of chubs at Scofield, the kids didn't really care though as long as the fish were biting, they were having fun. We talked with a sheephearder camped by Scofield and he let the kids ride his horse around for a few minutes, they loved it as it was some of their first time ever on a horse. DaNell took to it like a natural, Taylor had a hard time with the steering. Schydi and Leyton rode together with the horse being lead around. We had a picnic lunch at the park in Scofield then went over to Electric lake to fish some more, didn't even get a bite there, off we went again to try Mammoth which as of June 4 was still icy, the kids had a snowball/ice fight while we were there. Our final stop was Cleveland, where again no bites. We did get a few pics and had fun! Last weekend we went to Diamond Campground to check out a new campsite, looks like fun to us-Look Out August-Camping here we come. We have already cleaned the trailer out and it is ready to go :-D
Wow....it has been so long since I posted anything, that I am not sure of where to start. I guess I will start with the end of school. The kids all brought home many awards and good grades on their report cards, Schydi, Taylor and Leyton are happy for the break, DaNell not so much, she has even attended a Science Workshop already this summer and really seemed to like it. She is beginning to look for ideas for a new science fair project, hoping to get an early start. Science Fair this year is a requirement, not an option, as she has been placed in Advanced Science. If anyone has any ideas we are looking :-) She has read every book she has and is on the hunt for some new ones to tackle. Also if all goes well, she will get her braces off in 5 weeks. Can you say excited? Taylor is very happy to be leaving Elementary after the year he had. One of the teachers did not like him no matter what he did. He even spent 2 days in in-school suspension for talking and slouching in his seat. I was told he has body language issues and he "looks" like he is not paying attention. ???? I told them to look at his test scores, if he wasn't paying attention, how could he pass all of the tests? Anyway, at the end of the year, he received the Presidential Academic Fitness Award, based on performance and attitude. I still haven't figured that one out. As for baseball, closing day was June 12, where they lost their final game. After the games, they held a dinner and announced the All-Star teams, he was picked for the 5th straight year. We haven't gotten any specifics on the when or where we play yet, but as soon as I do, I will let you know. Schdyi performed in many Choir programs during the last month of school, she really seemed to enjoy singing. She is sad to leave her second grade teacher, but also excited to move on to 3rd grade. She also celebrated her 8th birthday in May, we had a glitter toe and hair flair party, she had a lot of fun, and it still sporting some of her chosen blue hair flair. During the summer she has been enjoying playing in the sprinkler, reading, and going to Grandma's and Grandpa's every chance she gets. On to Leyton, He is finished with pre-school, and on to Kindergarten. One day he says he is ready for kindergarten and the next he wants to go back to preschool, so we'll see when it actually gets here. He participated in his preschool singing program and seemed to really enjoy it. No bribing him this year :-) He is very glad to have all the kids home now to play with him. He told me next year he is playing baseball and football and whatever Tay plays. He looks up to his big brother so much, it's so nice to see that. So there's a quick update of what's been going on here lately. I am going to try to post on a more regular basis....Hopefully I can keep up!
