Meet #2….

Leighton had his second meet this past weekend down in Castle Rock which is south of Denver. We had to be there at 7:30 which meant we left the house EARLY. I actually had an adoption camp meeting that morning as well so I only got to stay for part of the meet but Clint…

Football Bracket…

So we aren’t huge football fans in our house. Basically we record the Bronco’s game and then on Sunday evenings after dinner and bath we watch 30-45 minutes of it and call it good. The kids would tell you that they are huge fans but I’m not sure they could name many of the players…

Ice Castle….

For Clint’s birthday which was on the 9th I decided to surprise him and all the kids and get tickets to go to the Dillon Ice Castle. I got tickets for the 16th because it is what worked best with schedules and so last week we headed up there. Clint had no idea where we…

Air Force College Meet…

On Saturday we got to go down to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs with Leighton. Originally he was suppose to have a meet down there but the meet filled up super quick and his team didn’t make it in. We heard that there was a college meet and decided to head down anyway…

Meeting Their Cousin….

Tuesday evening the kids got a chance to meet Johanna their new baby cousin. Heidi and Josh are staying during the week at my parent’s house because their house is under re-construction. The kids were very excited to meet her, but on the drive over to my parents house we reviewed a number of times…

First Meet of the Season…

On Sunday Leighton had his first gymnastics meet of the season. it was the big home meet too which was fun because my parents came to watch and so did Leighton’s good friend Kieran. And being the first meet of the season it went like one would expect, some good things and some rough things…

Making Things…

When Leighton went to the Mikulak Gymnastics Clinic back in November he took Clint’s shirt that he wears to meets and got it signed and also got his clinic shirt signed and asked if I would make them into pillows for his bed. So Monday afternoon he and I sat down and went to work….

A New Year…

Last year I started using a Simplified Planner by Emily Ley as well as a Goal Planner from Cultivate What Matters, and as I was getting everything set up for 2020 and reviewing what worked well and what needs to change and goals for the year I decided to expand that to our family and…

I’m an Aunt!

Last Friday the 27th at 4:02PM my brother and sister-in-law had their first baby, a baby girl. Johanna Sue weighed 6 pounds 14 ounces and everyone was healthy and doing well. My parents and I got to see her when she was just a few hours old. The kids haven’t met her yet but hopefully…

Birthday Hike….

For my birthday I wanted to go on a family hike. Not a bad idea if my birthday was sometime between April and October….but it’s not, it’s at the end of December. And sometimes in Colorado the end of December can feel like April….but not this year. We have had one of the coldest Decembers…
