Taylor's First Game

It was actually the team's third game of the season, but this was the first game for Taylor. Boy did she have a great first game. She was goalie for the first half, she handled the ball eight times and did a great job in goal. At half, the score was 2-0 in favor of us. Taylor didn't want to play goalie in the second half, so coach put her in as forward. She went in and scored a goal right off. It was great watching her, she was easily the person in charge on the field. She bounced two shots off of the goalposts. She scored another goal later. She did a great job, all the parents were cheering for her. The final score was 5-0. Our team did a great job.

New Job!

In case you haven't heard, I am the President Elect for the coming school year at Panorama Elementary! I just got back from my first meeting and I think it is going to be fun (a lot of work) but still fun! I wanted to get involved with some adults again. I am still working in Scouts, but 8-10 year old boys are somewhat lacking in adult conversation skills. I will be attending a Convention at BYU in May (I believe the dates are the 16th & 17th). I will let you all know when I will be up that way!

Meantime, the girls are doing well. We are all over our sicknesses and Taylor is going to play her first soccer game tomorrow! It is at 9:00 am, so we will need to take a blanket I'm sure. Love to you all.

P.S.-- Grandma J. We will look forward to you coming for Taylor's birthday. Everyone is invited! We are having a Hula Hoopla this year, so get ready to Luau! Talk to you soon

Here is a sneak peek of Taylor and Shaylie's Bedroom with everything in place. We got the border up last weekend and it looks pretty great! The girls love it!

Great Grades!

Taylor got her Third Term report card yesterday and it was terrific! She got all M's (which is the equivelent of straight A's...don't get me started)! Her overall percentage is 96% and she is above level on her reading (113.3%). All percentages are above 95%, so she did an awesome job this past term!
Way to Go! We love you!

Ad problems

I just saw that my site sometimes asks you to install some software. Whenever you see this, do NOT install it. It is not from me, it is an advertisement from some company. Remember, do NOT install anything. (Just click no)

Added A LOT of pictures

Due to the fact that we lost several pictures when the home computer crashed, I wanted to get everything to the web site. Therefore, I have added a lot of pictures to the web site. To see all the pictures, click here

Photos back online

I have put the photographs back online. I got a bigger server and were able to fit A LOT more pictures. Instead of 35 meg of pictures, I have 12 GIG of room. To see the pictures, click here

Lots of stuff going on, little of it good

This has been a bad few days. I met up with my family friday night, turns out all the girls were sick, in fact, they still are. We have taken both of them to the doctor, hopefully the medicine will help.

My home computer has again crashed and Microsoft still doesn't have a solution, even though this problem appears to be wide spread. I am reformatting today with an older operating system in hopes that it will stop dying. We lost some recent pictures of the girls, I am VERY upset about that.

A new worker was hired this week. She is the yet another example of the state hiring people that sit in front of a computer 8 hours a day, yet cannot use a computer to save their life. I have had 8 calls from her in two days, most of which to do things that are amazingly simple.

In some happy news, the girls really love their new bunkbeds. And since they are both sick, they are spending A LOT of time in their new bed.

Day 4 - Much better

The server's actually worked correctly today and we learned a lot. I am excited to implement some of the things that I learned today. The class is going much better and they are giving us food, so that always makes me happy.

Taylor had her first soccer practice on Tuesday. I hope that it went well and I can't wait to see her on play on Saturday.

My mom bought the girls' a new bunk bed, it will arrive on Monday, so Tonya is busy getting the room painted and arranged.

What a waste!

I am in Salt Lake this week for Novell Training. However, today did not go well in the class. The servers did not work right, the demos didn't work right, practically nothing worked right. The teacher said that we would be through the first book and into the third module, well we are in the first module of the first book! He said we have to hurry normally so that the last sections can have more time, it will now be unlikely that we will even get to those sections. The teacher said that he is going to spend his night there trying to fix things. I hope things go better tomorrow.

Tonya and Taylor have a story to tell, I hope they log in and write it soon.

Shaylie's Cast is off!

We went to the doctor today and Shaylie's cast was removed. She didn't like the big buzzing saw at all but she handled it very well. Her leg was mighty grungy and flaky under the cast, but I brought her home and gave her a bath (finally!!!) and it seems to be doing better. She won't put any weight on it though. The doctor said that would be likely, we should give her a couple days or even a couple weeks before she feels comfortable walking on it. I saw the x-rays they took today and the break was still visible but it was beginning to heal. So we will take good care of her until she's good as new. We go back in a month for another x-ray followup. We will let you know!

It's Snowing!

Sunny St. George, where all the snowbirds come to avoid the bad weather, is getting snowed on pretty hard! The snow is sticking to the ground, Taylor is out getting soaked in it, and all the green lawns are covered! Dry almost all winter, now we have had rain or snow 4 out of the last 5 days.
