Summer is over...School has started!

WOW...the summer just flew by, but it sure was packed full for us and the kids' activities kept us BUSY!
Ben started the summer off heading to BSU to Football camp...

...and continued playing football, working out, playing golf and mowing lots of lawns. He even picked up a new hobby this summer...road biking...after he purchased his own bike.
Mason...started the summer heading to Hermiston, OR and running in the RunTrackTown Meet and qualifying in 2 events...the 100m and 400m.
By qualifying meant he would be running next in Eugene, OR at Haywood Field, one of the best known historic track & field stadiums in the US at the University of Oregon...it was a pretty AWESOME experience for Mason, but he definitely let his nerves get the best of him.
Then Mason went to both Bomber and Falcon football camps...
...and finally RYF started!
Day #1
 ...on Day #2 a big storm rolled in and practice was cancelled...Camryn and Mason decided to play ball in the house and this happened...
...so after calming him down and me trying to lift him up...we get him to the ER...2 resets later and an X-ray...we find out it's in fact BROKEN!!!
...so now he's in a boot for 4 weeks and NO FOOTBALL!
Camryn had an exciting summer, it was filled with her morning workouts, LOTS of RUNNING and LOTS of SOCCER!
She finished FOFA being able to squat 125lbs! She ran her 1st Half Marathon with me and she
 did awesome! She set a goal for herself to complete the half in 2 hours and 15min and she came in at 2hours 12min
Her soccer team took 1st Place in the Beaverton Cup!
...and just a few weeks later took 1st Place again at the FC Sounders Cup!
...the girls ended the summer with 2nd Place at the Mt. Hood Challenge.
...it was a great summer of soccer. They are already gearing up for their Fall Season.
We ended the summer taking the kids to see the Reign battle Washington Spirit in the NWSL semi final match on Sunday night at Memorial Stadium...even though it was a LONG NIGHT...the game was awesome!

...now it's time to get back into the swing of things with school and try to juggle all these sports schedules...wish us luck!
