Last week our cute U9 ZEHNOS played in their 1st competitive league soccer tournament! The girls were soooo cute in their new uni's and with their "bags"!!! The first game was against the home team Rampage #1, we whooped them 15 to 1 (& the one goal was off of our player)!! The second game was against another Rampage team, we put the hurt on them too!!! ....11-1. Then the 3rd game we got the chance to play La Roca, from Layton, they were amazing, like us, just a little more experience. We lost to them 9 to 2....ya, ouch! Our 4th game was against ANOTHER Rampage team and we BEAT them 9 to 1. This put us in the CHAMPIONSHIP game against La Roca! The coaches had a little different stratagey for this game.... MORE DEFENSE! The plan did work but the ladies~in~red were still scoring against us. At half time the score was 3 to 1 for La Roca. The second half we did a lot better, more aggressive and more bodying~up!!! We scored 2 more goals (by my sweet Ry...gettin the give-n-go down)!!!!.....but, lost 6 to 3!!!!!
It was an awesome game and we could not have been more PROUD of the girls EFFORT!! For our 1st games together and our 1st tourney....we were incerdible!!!
What an awesome experience and education we are having with Morgan and the Zehnos!

So this past weekend we celebrated the 4th of July! We live in the land of the free and easy! Or is it just the free? Anyhoo, I'm not going to bear my testimony or anything....but, we are so lucky to have all the luxuries and choices we enjoy! I am grateful for all of the service men & women who are protecting our rights and country....Dan has served in the Nat'l Air Guard for 24 years! ...My Dad who is now retired Army served for 40 years! And my bro's-in-law who have been to Iraq and serving now in Carasau (sp?)..!! So, lets all thank our lucky StArS we live here in the great USofA!!!

My sister Jami was here for a few weeks with her boys. It was fun to see them & to hang a little with my little sis! We did go shopping one day, Me, my mom, Mandy & was the same old for what about 2 hours and then Jami was we did lunch and laughed a lot at each others misfortunes and shortcomings! We can be so ruthless sometimes! Mandy and Jami had to remind me of my potty-mouth and party-days and how they thought I was going to hell! Why do they have to be so judgemental???? Like THEY were angels!?? ya right! They just had a different kind of know, orange jello, rook, rOoTbeEr, bArbiES!

Neither can I!! ;) he got home just in time for his Birthday on the 23rd! the kids picked out his presents this year.....a Smoothie maker and the new UnderArmor Crosstrainers! We all went to lunch and then out to CuTLeR for some serious WaKEboArDinG!!! That night we had a little fire in our fire-pit, roasted smores and watched the sky for shooting stars!
