Football Game ~ Jasen

Jasen's first football game was this afternoon, and they did awesome! Jasen is stoked that his 2 best friends are also on his team. And although I only got one photo, they beat Meridian Middle and are off to a great start!

Football Game ~ Hunter

This morning was Hunter's first football game of the season. His team lost, but they did get a touchdown, so it wasn't a total loss.

Survivorman Campout

This month's scout campout was the annual survivorman, where the boys hike into a spot and camp by themselves for the night. This year they chose to go to Duck Lake, and once they hiked in, they set about finding their camp spot. One group of 4 boys (including Jasen) ended up finding a big hole and piling together in that for the night. The other 2 boys spent the night in a hammock and survival tent, respectively. After a pretty cold and miserable night, the boys had a great morning of fishing and swimming in the lake, and overall it was a pretty good campout!

First Day of School

Today was the first day of school for the kids. Tristan is now a sophomore at Rocky Mountain, and spends every other morning at Meridian High doing shop classes, which he loves!

Jasen is in 8th grade, and starting his last year at Heritage.

Hunter is now in 4th grade at Prospect, and he is so excited to be starting his second year in the GT program. He'll go on Wednesdays, and he can't wait!

Brinley is a big 1st grader at Prospect. She loves school, and is so happy to be going back!

Happy Birthday Hike

This year for Cahl's big 35th birthday, we wanted to go for a family hike, so we took the day off and went to Blue Lake. It was an easy hike in, less than a mile, and the lake was beautiful! Cahl and the boys all had fun jumping in and swimming, and we all walked around the lake and had lunch. Of course, we had to stop for ice cream on our way home! It was a great day, and awesome to spend Cahl's special day with him the way he wanted.

Black and Purple

Tonight was Tristan's football Black and Purple, which is their big kick off to the season, with scrimmages, raffles, food trucks, and lots of fun. It was also really cool that they called out and recognized both Jasen's middle school team, and all of the younger players that play in the same league as Hunter.


Hunter's football Jamboree was this morning, so we headed down to BSU for his team photos and scrimmages. Poor kid was close on his weight, so he weighed in wearing his sneakers, but he made weight! He loves football, and loves that his best friend Dalton is on his team!

Raingutter Regata

Hunter's scouts held their annual raingutter regatta tonight. Hunter has worked really hard the last few months to finish all the requirements for his Bear before football started, since he misses scouts for a few months during the season, and tonight he was awarded his Bear! The kids all had a great time, and Hunter won some races!
