Special Olympics

This year for youth conference our ward volunteered for the special olympics that were held here in Cedar City. It was so much fun and such a humbling experience. To see this athletes and their excitement in being able to participate in this event was just amazing. The thing that I admired most about these people is there is no competitive spirit in them what-so-ever! They are just there to have fun and be a part of such a great event. During races they would stop and help someone running next to them and give eachother high fives after the race. It was just such a special experience not only for us as leaders but for the youth in our ward. So I am very grateful for the opportunity I had to volunteer and meet some of these special spirits that are living in our world today. It was AMAZING!!

Almost Summer!

Wow! I can not believe the girls are done with school this week. I am so excited for summer to be here. We have been very busy lately with soccer and end of school programs. Soccer is now done and the girls both had a great year. Bailey has been asked to play on a summer games team so she is really excited about that. It should be a fun experience for her. She was also asked to play on a traveling soccer team this fall. And so it begins, right? The girls are both starting softball this week as well. We have had several fun weekends in Mesquite sittin' by the pool and swimming. We are going to Logan this weekend for Meagan's wedding and to visit with fam! I am so excited!! Then my family is coming down the following week to visit and have some fun. My aunt Nancy is even able to come along with my mom and Mind. We are going to have a blast. Braxton is now 14 months old and still just as fun as ever. He has such a funny personality already and is keeping us busy. We hope all of you are doing well and we miss you all very much!
