Lady Trojans

Haley was on the Taylor Jr. High 9th grade softball team. She played catcher, 3rd base & short stop. It was a tough season with practice every day after school and sometimes on Saturdays. Unfortunately they didn't have a winning record but she made a lot of new friends and enjoyed every minute of it. Here are a few random pictures of her playing.

She didn't waste a minute. As soon as the season was over she joined up with a city league team. This girl isn't happy if she's not playing some kind of sport!

Easter 2010

Easter Egg dying is definitely a tradition in our family. We do it every year and the kids love it -- even if the adults aren't so fond of it (or at least the messes that it makes)!

This is the first year that Jaxson has been able to do it mostly by himself. I enjoyed just being a supervisor and not having to get my hands dirty.

Poor Nate wasn't feeling good but he forced himself to dye all of his eggs.

After all the eggs were dyed we went across the street and hid them at the school. Here are all the kids in the backyard waiting patiently (ha ha!) for the hunt.

As usual the Easter Bunny was very kind to my kids. The boys got new church clothes and Haley got a church Hymn Book for the piano. Since Easter was on General Conference Sunday they didn't get to wear their new clothes until the following week and of course I haven't taken any pictures. But I will say that they are handsome boys!
