Back at it...

Easton Albert

I know it's been 8 months since my last posting but I am up and running again. I am unable to woirk on these at school so I'm less efficient at home.
As you can see from the pictures, it was another intense NBC Team Camp this summer. This time I went as the head coach. I got re-hired in May after my good friend Don Faris stepped down. The girls and I spent most of June and two weeks in July competing in tournaments and camps in Darby, Missoula, Bozeman, Ronan, Gonzaga and Whitworth. Overall we took some time to get back in our comfort zone, but it was a very productive summer of hoops. We have very high expectations for the season!
The other picture is of another adventure Easton took in June. He attended the Freedom Alliance's Military Leadership Academy in Pennsylvania for two weeks. It was very challeging but he enjoyed every minute of the experience. The trip reaffirmed his desire to attend West Point after he graduates.
We have now started fall sports and are off to a great start in cross country. Our boys are trying to win our school's 2nd state title in October. It won't be easy...but is anything worth doing ever easy?!
Jaylee will be starting as an outside hitter on the varsity volleyball team...her mom is pumped to have another daughter play VB:)
Kaurie has worked her tail off this summer earning money to go back to Whitworth University this fall...though I don't think she will be working with adolescents again anytime soon:)
The big news of course is the wedding of Ashley and Gage in 2 days...Saturday, August 18th 2012 at First Pres. Church in Missoula. I am excited and nervous but happy for my oldest daughter and our new son-in-law. It should be a special celebration!
Keep checking back as I will be more on top of my blog this season.
God bless.
