9/16 KS State Fair

Paula, Cristi Gale, Kay Monroe, Alan and I head to the State Fair for the Third Day concert.  Interesting thing about this day was after months of heat and drought it was raining and COLD!  Cristi got us great seats and we stayed dry under the roof, although the band was soaked by the end of the night.

9/22 Happy Birthday Collin/ Volleyball

Erin's home volleyball game falls on Collin's birthday.  It was a busy  birthday: school, football practice, volleyball game and then Erin diss'ed us for the JrH football game.  sigh, no pics of Collin at all today!

9/18 goat fun

Our goat Emily gets upidty sometimes and today as Collin tried to put her in she reared up as if to say, "No way white boy!"

 Erin has knit a cape for Sunchip, isn't it cute?

9/17 Happy Birthday Me!

 The Third Day concert was my present to myself, to be honest.  We head to Derby for Hans' football game today.  We got there only to learn that the games were delayed 2 hours due to rain.  We were gone all day long and the game did not go well.  They not only lost, but Hans had some missed tackles that really upset him.
After the game we head to the church for a concert put on by the  Wismann family a family from up in Nebraska.  Erin could not help but admire just how much taller than me she is, so we had to pose for a picture.  Then Collin had to get in on it!

9.10 The moment he’s been waiting for…

Hans’ first football game against Trinity, a sure loss according to coach.  Yet everyone was pleasantly surprised!  Our boys came out ready to play!

Hans is #36 and gets a high 5 from coach for a fab tackle on the return!

Anderson and Scobee on the chain gang detail~


A fantastic tip by Lucas #12 and Hans is headed for the intended receiver to give him a hurtin’   He pulls up at the last minute!


9/9/11 What do you make of them sis?


9/8 JrH night…volleyball!

Last year we were divided with both a football and volleyball player in JrH…who do you watch???  This year each kid can have out total attention at their games…Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday…oh boy!

Erin's first game also came with doubts because she did not make the “A” team.  (actually this is only her first home game…I didn’t take the camera to game #1 bc she was convinced it would be so bad.)  

Here she is at warm ups looking good (and coach noticing!)

Go Team!



9/6 First Freshman Football Game

What parent/ child does not wait for that first game!  Collin, admittedly, was pretty discouraged coming into this game, convinced that he would not play.  “Too many players in my position ahead of me…”  He is #80 and did a great job.  He is playing Defensive End and even though we had to drive 1.5 hrs to see him play..it was worth it to hear his name several times over the PA.
