We went to watch Sophie's friend Madison perform in the play, Cinderella. One of my young women, Chyanne did the costumes. It was a great opportunity to support our friends.  It was jus ta bonus that the play was so well done. Lexie came with us.


Luke's legs get stuck occasionally.  Sometimes it doesn't bother him, like in the above pictures.  Sometimes, he screams and screams until we come undo him.  Only to promptly stick his legs back through the slots.

On our way to Utah...

My personal favorite- the snowman family,
complete with Scout, Queenie, and Dashie.

Luke Logan can wave!

He is darling, as he waves to everyone!

All-Star Frogs

What an amazing swim meet this turned out to be for Porter and Sophie!

Sophie went into the freestyle finals ranked 1st! She had to swim up a heat to place.  As we listened over the loudspeaker for the swimmers who made it to finals, we thought she hadn't made it as they called 8th, 7th, 6th... Then they got to 1st, and it was Sophie!!!! She made her ponderosa time twice that day.  We went back that night for the finals, and she placed 2nd in the finals.  Wahoo!!!

Porter went into the finals ranked 2nd!  He also had to swim up a couple of heats to place.  We had the same thoughts as we had during the finals call for Sophies race, and were thrilled when we heard his name called for 2nd.  During the finals race that night, Porter placed 1st.  Wahoo!!!

We left the next day for our month long excursion to Utah.  Our A/C in the van  had gone out the day before, so while we were at All Stars, we had it fixed. We had to get baby sitters for Ethan and Preston, because we couldn't all fit in the white car.
