I'm behind reading my missionary emails.  Here's what I opened this morning from Darlene Jones.  The message under the picture said, "We beat these kids in basketball, so they had to listen to our message."

That just makes me smile.  Way to go Colby!

. . . kept them young forever!  I always wanted to be only a mother.  To play house forever.


You win some and you lose some.  Dixie over CV . . . 2 to 1 in 8 innings.

It's really hard to take a picture through a chain linked fence at the Dixie Flyer field when the hard sun light is setting in; but I loved the look of these boys as they hung over the dugout with their own personal swagger.  There's my boy second in on the right.  Can you see which one is yours?

What am I going to do without you . . . Keely Bugs.  My heart hurts already.

Keely came home from work today; she actually filled in for me.  I had sooo much to do and catch up with and she on spring break.  She said, "Mom, whatever you need me to do."  Thank you Keely.

Two waitresses made a big mistake, between the both of them, they didn't know how to fix it.  That's when my "go to girl" was asked to step in.

She's bossy, she's smart and she knows how to take care of business.  Keely, I hope you make all your dreams come true.  Love you . . . and thank you.  Will you come home on holidays and work?

Over Dixie 8-7!

(This article was online with the St. George News ) Canyon View 8, Dixie 7

It was a tough-luck loss for the Flyers, who held a 6-3 lead into the fourth inning. That’s when Keaton Kringlen bashed a grand slam and changed the outlook of the game.

Kringlen’s heroics made it 7-6, but Dixie responded with the tying run in the top of the sixth. Jackson Vasi ended the thoughts of a road win for the Flyers as the Canyon View outfielder ripped a double to the gap that brought home the winning run in the bottom of the seventh for the Falcons.

Ty Nielson gave up seven runs and 13 hits, but got the complete-game win for CV, while Gavin Graff was the tough-luck loser for Dixie. Kringlen also doubled in the game, while Chance Aplanap had two doubles for the Flyers.

Canyon View, 12-6 overall and 6-3 in region, plays at Dixie Wednesday at 7 p.m. and then closes league play with a two game set vs. last-place Hurricane. The Falcons have the last bye of the region season.
Dixie, 10-8 and 3-4, still has two-games series left with Cedar and Pine View.

Thank you St. George News.


Oh, how life changes.  Story coming later.

I send the kids out the door to the dance hall, and then an hour later, I sneaked into the Heritage center to admire them.  Oh, I love my kids!

They even stick together when they are dancing. Oh, I'm going to miss these days; my kids being home with me.

 They are happy; and I am too.
Look at that hair!  Curls and all.  They are having fun!
 At 10:30 pm, the top 7 Junior boys and girls were brought to center stage to announce the royalty.
 Keaton was announced boys 2nd attendant.

With Alyssa Maxwell his partner.  Look how cute Keaton is congratulating her.
The 2014 Junior Prom Royalty.  Keaton, Alyssa Maxwell,  Queen Alyssa, King Dantley Eastman, Taylor Nelson and Dallin Tripp.  Congratulations kids!  When Mike saw this picture, he asked, "Where is Keaton's jacket?"  Darn it I thought.  Keaton always takes it off because he gets too hot!  I wished he would have had it on; I didn't even notice when I took this picture; I didn't even notice until Mike said something.  Oh, I think he is awesome anyway!

It was a fun night.  The kids came back to our house for a midnight snack.
