This Spring was U L T R A B U S Y for our family.
We had prom, soccer, baseball, track meets, dance recitals, guitar recitals, graduations and the beginning of cheer practices. It is our "N O R M A L", but it was busy nonetheless.
Nick took Madison Poulson to Prom this year. She is a darling girl. It was fun to get to know her better and we hope he brings her around more in the future. He also had his best friends in his group and they all had a very fun time.
YOU LOOK VERY HANDSOME, NICK!!!
Jack continued his baseball playing with the South County Lynx. His hitting has improved including a home-run over the center field fence, and several doubles this year. He is quickly living up to the nickname "Jack Hammer". He plays outfield and second base and even got in a little time at catcher in the last season game where he tagged out the runner to clinch our win.
WAY TO PLAY JACK!!!
Shay played soccer for her second season. She really likes it. She seemed to play a lot of "goally", and we're not sure if this was by her choice or the coaches, but she did well there... learning a lot from Coach Camilla. She even scored a goal this year, which made her very happy.
WAY TO GO SHAY!!!
Nick finished his high school baseball career and had a great season. He had 0 errors at Centerfield. He batted over .500 in the playoffs and tallied the most stolen bases of the team. The Skyhawks finished their season in the State Playoffs literally minutes after their graduation ceremony (in fact, they had to leave graduation a little early.) Their heads were not in that game due to the tough circumstances. But they played well throughout the season and can hold their heads high as outstanding young men. GREAT ENDING TO A GREAT SEASON, NICK!!!
Marissa and Shaylee had their dance recital and they did a fantastic job and they both looked beautiful. Cindy is wonderful and they learn a lot and have so much fun with her and Carly and Cassie. They highlighted Marissa for making Cheer at Salem Hills. It was very nice.
Then they had their guitar recital. Miss Claudia said that they are her most advanced students and for this we had to chuckle, because they have only been taking a year. I was very impressed with how well they performed though. They even sang a duet and Marissa has threatened me to not put it on the blog. But it was very very good.
WAY TO SHINE GIRLS!!!
Shaylee had her first Hershey's Track Meet (Jack opted out of his this year... not his favorite thing.) She had a great time hanging out with some of her best friends and she took second in her heat the first time around. (She's in the grey with pigtails). She was happy to have done well.
GREAT EFFORT SHAY!!!
Jack graduated from Sixth Grade and completed Elementary School. The students performed a great program. They danced and sang and they were so cute. I loved seeing them having so much fun. The best part was when they sang Dream Big and they randomly held up signs stating what their dream was. It was so great. As his mom, I got a little choked up seeing my "not so little" boy getting so grown up. He has more amazing things ahead of him as he's starting Jr. High this fall.
NICE ACCOMPLISHMENT JACK!!!
Nick graduated from LDS Seminary and we are very proud of this graduation too.
WAY TO FINISH, NICK!!!
And last, but not least... Marissa started her Cheer practices, which she absolutely loves even though they are at 6:00 a.m. nearly every morning this summer. She is doing great, learning a lot and getting to know and love her fellow cheerleaders. We are so excited to see so much more this fall as football season begins.
KEEP AT IT MISS!!! CAN'T WAIT TO WATCH YOU!!!
