I can not believe almost two months have passed since I have been able to share on here! Everyone keeps telling me how much quieter and less busy my life must be with Luke and Zach gone. HA - is all I have to say to that. With Ethan in middle school football and Erin in Varsity Volleyball nothing is quieter or less busy I can assure you. I think I drove the road from Pinedale to Kemmerer at least once a week for 6 weeks (2 hours one way) - either to a volleyball tournament or a football game. Alas fall sports are over and we had a great fall. Ethan was so excited to play football this year and he really showed his enthusiasm on the field. In the one game against Star Valley we won the game 34 - 0 and Ethan had scored 32 of the points - quite a highlight for him. The last game of the season they played Rich County and beat them 40 something to 6 and the highlight of that game was getting to play on the new turf on the high school field. Those bright orange end zones must have really attracted those boys!! Luke was able to make it home for Homecoming and was so jealous to see the new field and the lights. The coach invited him down on the sidelines so he had a lot of fun doing that. We really enjoyed having him "home" - even though he wasn't really here that often.
Erin was the starting middle hitter on the Varsity Volleyball team this year. She had a great season this year as she led the team in kills. The biggest highlight for her team was that they made it to the Wyoming State Volleyball Tournament. I believe it's been about 10 years since that has happened. They were beat in the first game by Wheatland - this year's champions and then again by Glenrock. We are truly excited to watch her team in the future as there were only 3 seniors on the team this year and the rest were sophomores. Way to go Lady Wranglers!!
We have about a month reprieve before Erin starts her basketball schedule and so Kenny and Ethan have plans to meet with my brother Rick and Luke and Zach in Eastern Wyoming to do some pheasant hunting. Erin and I have a shopping date to Idaho Falls and I think she's going to a Christian Concert next weekend. Ethan didn't want to play basketball as he is "saving himself" for the ski season. It sounds like everyone around us is getting tons of snow and we haven't hardly had any yet! Needless to say he is not very happy about that.
Well I'll try to get some pictures in here and hopefully I will get my new camera ordered this week!
