If you already do not know are family is football fanatics. We love the NFL,especially the CHARGERS and are starting to get involved watching college. Boise State has become the team that sparks are interest. We are also looking for the best opportunity for Hayden. I know that I have told you this before but Hayden's dream is to become and NFL player. He has the talent and the heart to achieve this goal.
This year Hayden and Jim had the opportunity to be a father and son coaching/player team. It was amazing to see the dedication that these coaches gave our children. I have never been more proud to have witness the FAMILY that was created between these boys and coaches. Before each game they prayed and not one parent stood in the way or criticized this decision. It taught the boys to be strong, to stand up and be proud no matter the out come.
We started the season 0-3. This was so hard on the boys because the talent that existed did not represent are record. We tough coaching and changing up are game plan, we ended are season 4-4 and took third place overall. To accomplish this we took out a team ranked 1st while we were ranked 7th and beat them 6-0.
This was the BEST football year ever. We even had our 1st concussion(not fun and scary) but he is all right and still loves the game.

Well where has the time gone. I went back to work officially in May working full time. It has been a very stressful adventure. I will not lie. You never realize all the joys that fill your life until you are not there half the day. I really love working in the office I work in and all the knowledge that I have been taught. I have a CAREER not just a job but the sacrifices my family has made are many and I truly think about how short TIME really is.
I have a freshman in High School, a middle schooler, 4th grader, kinder, and my baby is turning 2. I truly feel blessed beyond measure. You may wonder how I can do everything--work, serve in church,5 kids and all the activities that go with our crazy life and the answer is THE LORD. I have never in all my life prayed harder, expressed my gratitude more and have felt the love of my SAVIOR more than I do now.
I truly believe with all of my heart that we have trials that shape who we are to BECOME. My trials will never be yours and your trials will never be mine. So what ever you may be going through just know that Savior has suffered all for us and he knows are SORROWS AND JOYS. He will never leave our side nor have us fail. It is our own insecurities that makes us FAIL, but with savior ALL is possible. WE CAN DO IT!!
These times bring many challenges that I thought I would never face. It makes me really search to know what I believe and what I want my children to believe. It makes me know that I belong to a fabulous church that builds up strong family values and it is the true church. This is what I want for my children and generations to come. If I have to sacrifice everything for one "lost" sheep than I will. I will never give up. I will not the my doubts or what the world presents to my children WIN. I am a fighter and I will WIN.
I love all of you and are grateful to all of my friends and family that have been there, listened, sacrificed and just loved ME for who I am.
