Some of my favorite Grandpa memories are definitely snow skiing in college and him making the best sandwiches to eat on the way home.
Going to visit in college when I was homesick and didn't know very many people. Always was a safe place to go.
Him throwing me in the pool (I must have been little!!) at the country club.
Also a cool fun fact is my grandpa's name is on the inscription of the Marriot Center at BYU because he helped with it. And we found out from my sisters awesome investigative skills in family history…a newspaper article that says he was awarded the first businessman of the year award from BYU…no wonder he was always such a BYU fan.
He sure loved my family and the kids and I worry that Jason and I personally shaved off a few years of his life with how much he worried about us during unemployment. My most tender letters from him were during this time.
So we found out about that early Saturday morning…and then had to be at Darby's soccer game at 7:15 a.m.
Jason and I divided and conquered because Luke had to be at his game shortly after that for pictures so I just took Baylie with me.
The last soccer game of Darby's we went to was a slaughter and it was super hot so really we were just hoping someone would score a goal since that had not happened yet and this was game 3!
Well, the first little bit of the game Darby was moseying along, like walking to the ball! It was driving me nuts and I yelled, is your foot hurt, why aren't you running? And she yelled back, because I don't want to! which got a big laugh from the parents who heard.
But then her hustling self kicked in and she scored a freaking goal! The first one I was yelling and jumping and texting Jason and my family who I already had been texting all morning.
Well then she came to see me during a time out and I said that was awesome, do it again!
And that girl did. And then again and again! The only person to score, I was jumping so much and such a proud mama! 4 goals in one game and they won!!! The other team was huge so maybe she was intimidated in the beginning but wow that sure was fun to watch. Poor Jason was so sad to miss it but I don't think it will be the last she has caught the bug!
A friend of mine came and said hi after the game cause she said she could hear me from far and said, I know that voice! haha, and embarrassing ;)
Then we went to Luke's game and he wasn't too pleased with it but today he had a game (Monday nite) that Jason missed as well and it was great! You can only do as much as the coach puts you in but where he was put he did great! Threw a touchdown pass and had an interception and pulled a bunch of flags. I'd say it was nearly his best game all season. Sometimes you have a great day and sometimes you have an off day ya just never know.
I just so excited I brought my big camera! Such better pictures :) and plenty of my buddy Baylie
At the end of the game, is that a happy smile or what?!!
ahh, this is a cute day picture :) and the girls with their devices…what a strange growing up they have!
