Triathlon

  Every year 3 Mile Creek does a Triathlon.  Dallin was really excited about this, and even more excited when Jackson Thurgood asked him to be his partner.  One person ran (Jackson), one person rode a bike, and then together they had to do a obstacle course.  Jackson was a very fast runner and was the 2nd person back.  Dallin took off on his bike. 
 

Coming back from his race, he was in 2nd place. 


I didn't make it back to the field in time to take their pictures through the obstacle course, but I saw them at the finish.  They were thrilled with their 2nd place finish.  They got a back pack, and a step counter. 





Afterwards, they were able to play outside until all the grade had finished the triathlon. 
It was a really fun day!

Nastics Trophy Day!

  The boys look forward to Trophy Day each year! They love to perform and show their stuff! Bryson calls it "nastics", and he loves it! His day was first, it was during the day, but Neil was able to still come.  He is in a mom and tots class, so lucky me, I am in all these pictures.  But I do love this class, I have been able to do it with all of my boys.

After we do things in the little gym, then the kids get to go out into the "big gym".  Bryson loves to do this on the rings, because Dallin does it!
Waiting so patiently for his turn.
Tada!
Showing his trophy
Then Dallin and Camden's performances were at the same time.  I took Bryson over to my neighbor's and that made life a lot simpler, since we were trying to watch both boys at the same time.

Rings routine, this is Dallin's favorite thing.  I was so proud of him, and he did it with no help from his teacher!

 Getting his trophy! When he was standing on top, a girl about his age was sitting right behind us, and she says loudly "he's hot".  I about dyed, he is way too young for that.  Then he went and sat by us, the girl said again, "I am serious, look how hot he is".  Needless to say, it did make Dallin's day!

 Camden took gymnastics most of the year, there was only about 6 weeks left, and he was really fighting me on going to gymnastics. Once he got there, he seemed to have fun, so I just kept making him go.  Then one day after his class, he went and got his teacher to talk to me.  I was a little worried.  His coach said, Camden says he doesn't like gymnastics because he doesn't learn any ninja moves.  He went on to say that he teaches a parkour class, during the next hour and wanted to know if I thought Camden could try the class.  They learn lots of ninja moves.  Camden was absolutely beaming while he talked to me, so he tried it that night and there was no going back to gymnastics, he is parkour all the way! It was really hard to get pictures of Cam that weren't fuzzy, because he is always moving fast!


 Posing in line!




They jump off this wall onto a huge mat, it is a pretty big drop, and Cam loves it.  Eventually they will flip off of it, and do more tricks.

Good job boys!
And another year of gymnastics comes to an end.  I don't know if Dallin will have time to take next year, but he really wants to do the rings, so we will see.  Camden can't wait for parkour to start!

Soccer Season 2012

So this year, Cam was on his Best Buds team, Jackson Ricks, he was very happy about that! I am not sure if Camden will ever be the aggressive player, but he had fun, and that is the most important thing.  Though I am pretty competitive so I feel bad, when other kids sit out for him to "play" and he just stands there.  There were a few moments in the season where he did get in the game more! We shall see!

Love the look on his face!


Doing a throw in!
Dallin was not a team with his close friends and he was bummed, but he was on the team with Quade, Cameron and Carson, and that made up for it! Brett Simpson was their coach, and at the beginning of the season I thought we wouldn't win a game, but Simpson is a great coach and really helped these boys a lot.  Our first game we lost like 6 - 0, we had to play that same team again on our last game, and we won them! It was so fun to see how much they improved over the season. 
He definitely has some hustle!


Team picture on our last day!

Dallin did make the All Star team, and was able to play a couple more games.  They did pretty well, but I honestly can't remember the scores.  I really need to get caught up on this blog, so I don't forget the details!
