Making Stacy Happy

I just don't know what is wrong with me and my lack of blogging skills lately, I seriously need to get with the program if not just for the simple reason that I'm sick of getting comments from Stacy about the lack of blogging going on. So here I am, dropping everything else just to update to make her happy. Well, I hope you are satisfied.
The kids and I went to Boise for Spring Break this March to see Sean's mom. It was great, we saw movies, went golfing, and just did whatever we wanted to do. I need to be a permanent vacation. Someday.

Jared Wrecked my mom's Cadillac, and is going to make a necklace out of the Cadillac symbol off the front. Ya, that whole experience has been fun.

My sisters and I went to the Woodburn Tulip Festival with all the little kids. It was great. My kids stayed home for things like school, track, and the ever important, Weight lifting.
Not that much real crazy stuff has been going on with us lately, but it is getting close to summer, and you never know what can happen next.
Oh, and one last thing. Captain Freedom now lives in the house, but he hasn't done anything "super" yet. Will keep you posted.

I Phones Rock!

OK, so I just loaded a I Phone blogging app, oh Stacy, you should be so proud. So now I will be able to keep this up to date a little better than usual. But here is the crazy thing about this app, I was ready about it, and the person who wrote the discrition was not an English speaking person. I hope it works because the broken English discription of it was a little sketchy. Oh well, here is to making my life easier.

Been A While

Here are some pictures of things we have been up to, since I have not been updating, but I will try and do better, I promise.

3 Strikes, And I Take Your Keys Away!

A lot of people have asked me what is up with Sean and the cars all of a sudden? I have tried to keep my comments to myself, so as not to jinx myself (knock on wood right now), but I got my Suburban back yesterday after a 2 month repair, so now I am ready to share Sean's streak of car bad luck with you all:

Strike 1:

Maybe we can overlook this one, after all a bullet is not real uncommon in a war zone. But this did start it all, the infamous "bullet through the windshield" in Iraq, and we received this picture via e-mail with a title of "Woo, that was a close one". Luckily the military has their own insurance to cover such mishaps.

Strike 2:

4 days after his triumphant return from the lovely spa like desert of Iraq, we traveled to Bend to watch Jared break a finger and get a concussion, yet keep playing a fab game of football. On our way home at 11:00PM, in the middle of nowhere, I might add, Sean strikes a huge Elk going 60 miles an hour. Luckily again for him others were driving home also from the game, so we just abandon the car there, and went back for it the next day. I almost cried leaving my most favorite car I ever owned on the side of the road. Sigh.

Strike 3:

Well this is the last of Sean leaving his mark on a car. With our fleet dwindling, he borrowed his Grandfather's truck to go to Portland, and on his way hit a deer in Rice Hill. Oh the humanity. The good news is that there was no were no humans injured in any of these accidents, but for all of you animal lovers out there, sorry.

We are hoping that the theory of bad things come in 3's holds true, my mom says that all the time, and by my experiences as a mom now I know that moms are always right. Isn't that true Jared.

Bad Blogger!

So, Stacy has given me the gentle hints that I am not a very good blogger. I will try and work on that. Sorry! Well, here is the latest updates... football is over, and we can get on with our lives for now. Jared had a great season, and has proven himself to be a real hard worker. And Monte lives up to his nickname "The Monster", it only gets bigger from here. Jared has only been done for a week now, so he is trying to decide what to do with all his extra time. He is still in the weight room every day after school, but that only uses up an hour after school. He has taken to teasing Maile until she screams. Kill me now! The driving range would be a great alternative. Monte on the other hand went strait from football to basketball, and is doing great. I'm just glad that I don't have to do all the running, and can just watch. Sean is home from Iraq, and has put 2 cars in the body shop. My Suburban by way of an elk, and his Grandfather's truck, a deer. We are glad to have him home?? I on the other hand am either blocking out what I have been doing on a daily basis, or just forgetting. I don't know which one. All I know is I drive a lot, and my mom's Cadillac (which I am glad that she is letting me borrow) is about a quarter of the size of my Suburban, but only one more day until I get it back. So anyway, there you go . I will try and pull myself together and keep this up to date for everyone. I promise with fingers crossed behind my back.

Smelling Like Camp Fire

This past 2 weeks have been a downer, but I have the feeling that things are going to be looking up soon. Or at least they better. First of all Jared's team has lost 2 in a row, brought down by Pirates from the north (Phoenix), and Pirates from the west (Marshfield). Jared had well played games though, even if his team couldn't quite pull it together. Don't worry boys, things will be looking up this week, that long drive to Eugene will give everyone some time to think. Monte on the other hand had a fabulous game against Scenic last Tuesday, with so many tackles that the coach had to pull him off of defence in the 4th quarter due to the 44 to 8 lead that we had over them. Both of the boys are playing so well, on both the offensive and defensive lines, getting lots of playing time. Monte takes to the field again against Eagle Point today, hopefully they will do well. Good Luck! In other news, we had a huge wild fire here racing up the hill towards my Grandpa's, and Aunt's houses. They fire came within feet of them, but they fire fighters were able to keep a good fire line around them. Grandpa had a terrific view from my parent's front yard, it was as good a view as you could get, and the helicopters and the fire crews were right next to us out in our field. There was also a fire that broke out in Medford shortly after the one in Ashland, and we got a ton of ash dropped on us at work, as well as a great view of that on also. Both the fires have calmed now, but it was to close for comfort for our family. Now we have smoke, and everything in Ashland smells like camp fire, and probably will for a couple more days.

First Game

Jared had his regular season opener against Henley on Friday. They took the Hornets down 22 to 19. Sean got to listen to the whole game on line in Iraq, isn't technology amazing! The saga of the numbers was also solved as a tall lean number 60 ran on the field that resembled Jared. Finally after 3 number changes this year, I think he is going to stick with this one. One more week until Monte has his first game, but tune in this next Friday for the update after the Grizz take on the Phoenix Pirates.

Football Season Begins

Jared has officially kicked off his football season with the traditional red and white scrimmage where Jared debuted his new number.He would not tell us what his new number was after he got moved to the O-line, and we are still not sure if the one he wore tonight is the real number, we will see next Friday in the season opener against Henley. Anyway, he played great, and had an even better time. Monte also kicked off his water boy season, and is looking forward to dressing down in the pads next week when his own football season starts. Meanwhile, back at the Hall of Justice, or I at home, whatever you prefer, the trailer has been coming along nicely. I can't wait to have it done soon! We updated the Gorgeous Georges blog with new pictures of all the trailer work. Well, the world is now safe, so until next time... see you all on Friday night under the lights! We will update on the number saga soon.
