THS Soccer 2011

Mike started playing soccer this year for Tenino HS and he loves it. He really hasn't played a sport for a few years, unless you count bowling, LOL. So I was glad that he decided to join the soccer team. Most of his friends play also so that helped encourage him to give it a try. He's on the JV team and plays forward. These pictures are from his first game , which they lost unfortunately, but two games later they won and Mike made one of the two goals. Nice!

Summer with the boys

I scrapped this page last night. It's from last summer and shows lots of the things we enjoy doing during the summer. As soon as they are ripe, Cameron picks blackberries from the bushes in the driveway, then he and Jim make a pie. We usually end up with 2 or 3 pies and maybe one cobbler throughout the summer. It's kind of a tradition since we have lived in this house. Then of course there's fishing and fireworks and usually some yard work and goofing around. I love summer in Washington, so mild and nice. I just hope this years summer comes soon, I'm tired of the cold.

John's 18th birthday

Last Sunday we celebrated my nephew John's 18th birthday at his mom's house in Yelm. John is such a good boy, he has grown into an awesome young man. We spent lots of time talking about his college plans, he's a senior this year. He may go to PLU and he may go to OSU in Oregon, he's not sure yet but he wants to do something in business. Mom and Dad made it to the party and Dad even stayed for more than an hour. He really prefers to stay at home fro the most part now days due to the Alzheimer's but everyone likes to see him out and about when he can do it. The party was fun, John got a great new Cannon camera and was super excited.He also scored a ton of cash!! Lucky boy. Happy birthday John- we love you.

Hey there friends.....

Here I am!! I had a chance to scrap some pages over the last few weeks, yep weeks, and thought I'd post them here on the blog. Poor blog, it's been horribly neglected!
I have been a bit busy at work and I also seemed to have lost my scrap mojo, not sure it's back but this is a start. The first layout is for Scraptiffany's blog challenge from last week, her link is on the left side task bar, check out all of the great layouts if you get a chance. The others are some of the product I got at CHA and some were projects we did at the make and takes. There was some great new lines there and they gave away lots of product to promote the new stuff. Especially Teresa Collins, I used her new sports line for the football layout below.
Well, I hope  to post more often. I miss it and like to keep friends and family current with what's going on in our lives. Wish me luck! Have a great week everyone!
