Pole Vaulting Cody's Junior Year - April 2013

Cody is amazing. He is such a gifted athlete. He loves pole vaulting and he is good at it! I hope after his mission he will be able to pole vault in college. This is a series from his junior year. It probably isn't the best one, but I still love watching the progression.






Here is a better series from the same season.






He cleared 14'6" last week. Pretty impressive!

Chicks April 2013

Jayce had the awesomest second grade teacher. Seriously, the best teacher I've seen ever. And that's saying something because we've had 185,694,302 teachers in our parenting career. Anyway, they hatched chicks in their room and then made these cute little pouches for them. 








Wish I would've gotten pictures of the eggs....

Pinewood Derby March 2013

Jayce has not enjoyed cub scouts very much. It's probably our fault because we are kind of tired of the cub scout thing. One thing he did enjoy is making a pinewood derby car with his dad.


I don't think we won many races despite dad's engineering attempts at making it faster, but it was still fun!




Thanks to the many scout leaders who work tirelessly to make this program great for our boys!

I also found this gem! Jayce was in 2nd grade and losing teeth is a way of life in 2nd grade!

First Day of Third Grade!

I don't know how it happened, but Jayce is growing up! 

I am now employed at a high school, so the first day of school is a very, very busy day, and I wasn't able to go with Jayce to his first day of third grade :(. The day before I told Jayce I wanted to talk to him about something important, and then I asked him if he is ok with me not taking him on his first day of school. He acted shocked that I thought it was any big deal and he was fine with just Mark taking him. Whew! But, Mark sent me these pictures in the morning -





Technology is wonderful...the next best thing to beign there!
He has a teacher who is brand new to Park Village, and so far so good! We're off to a great start of the school year!

Sutherland Family Reunion in Breckenridge!

Words can't express how great it was to be with the Sutherland family last week. We were so bummed to be missing Dallin, Erin, Caitlin & Billy.

The whole crew who was able to come.








Once again we had a bbq dinner and a show by Two Below Zero. Loved those guys!







The Sheriff and Dan. Dan is made the new deputy.

 Kelly, staring as Daisy May!

Rock climbing!











White water rafting!











The best part of the week were the devotionals by the grandkids, and the family home evenings by our generation. Grandpa has established as our family motto "No Empty Chairs at our Celestial Table." We all talked about how we plan to make that happen. I love our family!
