This summer Gage joined a competition baseball team, it was a great learning and growing experience for him! They played double headers every Saturday for eight weeks.
He has done a awesome job learning responsibility and growing into a great young man.
Broc has also been busy this summer. He is such a good easy going kid I don't know how I got so lucky! Broc spent a lot of time with us at posse events and was great to keep an eye on Macy. He also went for a couple horse rides with Kory and I at scare canyon, he rode pony until she was wore out! Broc played Rec Baseball and loved it. Broc is such a people pleaser, and easily makes friends. He was busy swimming and playing with friend all summer. Broc also learned some responsibility and started mowing our lawn. Broc is a all star student at school and gets great grades.Broc just turned 8 and is preparing to get baptized as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, such a big choice he is making and he is so excited to be making it!
Macy had a big summer, starting with a big dance recital in June, it was her first time dancing on a big stage (Weber State auditorium) in front of lots of people and she did great!! Sadly 5 days later she had a big turn of events... she climbed on the fence to the horse corral in our backyard to pet our horse Rusty and he came over and bumped her off with his nose. This fall from 2 1/2 feet up broke her leg. She had a spiral double fracture to her Tibia. She was in a splint for 1 week and then a cast for 6 weeks. Luckily our orthopedic surgeon Dr Hendry (LOVED HIM) applied a waterproof cast, so that meant she could go swimming, get in the bathtub and anything else that you can do in the water as long as it was "Clean" water. they told me "no running, jumping, climbing, try and keep weight off it!" I reminded them thay were asking that of a 3 year old haha!! It took about 5 weeks until she would put any pressure on her leg, so until then we carried her around, she would crawl, or even slide around on her bum. Once it was mostly healed she would walk run and dance on it. She even was able to take swimming lessons the last week she had it on. I am thankful it only took 6 weeks to heal (longest 6 weeks of our summer!)!!
After this our summer went fast, and before we knew it school was ready to start.
Gage is in 5th grade, Broc in 2nd, and Macy started her first year of preschool!
Kory has been working in Vernal all summer, they are building a Vernal town center (strip mall) it is a big deal for Vernal. He leaves early monday morning and comes home for the weekend on friday. It has been an adjustment to him being gone but we have handled it very well!
Sorry for not keeping up the blog, I will try to improve! :)
