Catching Up...

Can't believe May is already here (probably because it still "feels" like January!!!)

My dad snapped his Achilles tendon while playing basketball with my kids at the beach and had surgery as soon as we got home from Spring break. No fun for him--especially when he walks 5 miles six days a week and will be laid up for a couple of months!

Hailey finished up her lacrosse season on the WXHS team.

She loves the sport as much as her sister and is almost as aggressive...

The team got their new uniforms halfway through the season (farewell kilts!!!) but usually had to wear underarmour and sweats because it rained or snowed almost every game...

Until next year...

Garrett and I were "privileged" to participate in our stake road shows this past week. Our ward's was based on the TV show "Lost" and we started off at the airport in the ticket line where a lot happened in front of the curtain (missionaries saying goodbye to family and girlfriends, groups breaking out in song from Fiddler on the Roof, etc.)

Of course the plane crashed and we encountered talking animals (primary children), Gilligan and crew, Castaway & volleyball Wilson and many changed words to "Wicked" and "High School Musical" songs. John was able to play the ticket taker the first night and then got "promoted" to stage hand once the original ticket taker returned. I think I know why we only do road shows every 10-20 years or so...

Your poor dad - tell him to make sure to listen to the doc and wear his boot for the full time (evwn if he is feeling better). Blaine didn't and ended up re-snapping the tendon. Twice in one summer is no fun.

And why is it always basketball?

The Roadshow turned out great--I think we should do one every year for Stake Conference! I am soooo glad Lacrosse is over...maybe we will finally get our summer.

What a bummer for your poor dad. That will be a long few weeks for him. I wish him a speedy recovery! You all did great in the road show. Nice job!
