Mikenna Soccer Game

Mikenna and the 4 girls she has played with for 5 years now. This is the last season they will all play together on a recreational team. Mikenna along with some of the girls will be trying out for RCL - Three Rivers club team. Which is a higher level of play - and a lot more travel and commitment. There will be a A and B team. There is also a District level - which is still a higher level of play and will travel - but will be in areas closer to Pasco. We will see what happens this week after she tries out!

My Best Friend and Sweetheart

Mandy does not know that I am posting this. I just wanted to take a moment to talk about how much I love and appreciate her. Mandy is truly an amazing person. She is so talented in so many ways. She is so creative. I am constantly amazed at the things she comes up with for our family. It is amazing how well she can turn our house into a beautiful home where the Spirit can abide and we all feel comfortable. She truly sets the tone in our home. She is such a wonderful, caring mother to our children. She would walk through fire for them. I am so impressed by her capacity to keep track of SOOO much at the same time. Not only does she keep track of everything happening in our family she also somehow seems to know what is going on with all of our friends and extended family as well. I am lucky to walk and chew gum at the same time. :-) I am trying to learn from her example though. I am sure that if I learn from her and follow her example I can lighten her burdens a little. I want her to know how much I appreciate her doing this blog. I don't think I tell her that enough. It is a really neat way to keep a history of our family. I appreciate the hard work she puts into it. I don't think I can thank her enough for all that she does for me and our family. She is the driving force in continuing a legacy of love that goes back for many generations within our family and I am so grateful for her.

I want Mandy to know that I love her so very much! She is the love of my life. She is talented, funny, smart, wise, caring, creative, loving and SO beautiful both inside and out. I cannot imagine walking this eternal journey with out her by my side. I know that I have much to learn and much to improve upon to even come close to being the companion that she deserves but I am grateful that she is patient with me and doesn't give up on me. I know that life can be CRAZY! But I have a true champion to help me face the craziness and to enjoy the wonderful blessings of this life and beyond.

I love you Mandy!! Thank you for all that you are! I am forever yours!

Your husband and best friend,
