Here is Miss KarLee serving!
My sister has helped alot (she Played in High School, and loved it too!)and my step mom! They really help encourage and talk with her about volleyball! I love watching any sport my children are in! I'm just used to coaching them. So its been so nice to be able to take all the pictures and to get to record her games! And I always think its nice for KarLee cause it seems like she listens better?!
With that being said, this year (after 5 yrs of coaching and being the Asst. Commissioner) I am going to be done coaching, and resign as the acting Asst. Commissioner for soccer (which was suppose to happen last year). And you know what I think I will be OK! Ryan doesn't think I can do it?! I know I can with him sitting next to me on the side lines, me taking pictures & filming my daughter, finally!! I think I have the 1st yr on tape and have pictures that I took, after that I coached and never had the chance, thanks to all the other parents who did and gave me some. I have really enjoyed be apart of AYSO! And am glad that we have this sport in our town!
Colby doesn't like cake, but LOVES brownies with CHOCOLATE Ice Cream?! Loves BBQ Chicken with WINGER sauce!! 3 Must haves for his Birthday!
His 4th must have is for me to make 1 night for the family, Baby Back Ribs-with Winger sauce!
Ryan got him this, Grid, a car racing game for his Xbox.
What is it??? KarLee got him this....
Fox shirt! I got him one too!
And money, money, money from all the rest of his family! Spoiled!
AND DON'T FORGET~The Fast & Furious movie he got to go to with 2 of his buds at midnight!!!!
Almost forgot, you really can't tell by his rodeo pictures
COLBY GOT A HAIR CUT!
That's right can you believe it? And he asked for one?
On his B-day, and by this age he is already tired of mom taking his picture!!
But isn't he so cute?!
Look at the HAIR!
He is so tall!! I hate it!
LOOK AT HIM NOW!!!!
It took me forever!! And I had to keep stopping to sweep!! I couldn't believe it, almost filled the garage can! OK not really, but wow! That boy had some hair!
Will get some more pictures on soon, loved the weekend! Even if it was so busy!

The Good news is HE did awesome! He was so nervous, but he won! OK here is the deal, he was the only boy so he wins for the boys Cutting/District High School .
Over all there was 3 of them cutting, 2 girls and he did beat them 2 out of the 3 go a rounds! So now he gets a buckle and goes to State.
And guess what TONIGHT is his first HIGH SCHOOL RODEO!
Its not Colby's first Rodeo.
(This wasn't either, he started out on sheep, I can't even remember how old he was, 3?)
Thank goodness through the years I have convinced him not to ride BULLS. He will be riding Saddle Broncs, not a whole lots safer, but no HORNS!
No he is not at all nervous, me mom, well yes but no, maybe its because he isn't?
He has so much confidence, but not really cocky, just excited and ready, so ready to do this. Not that he has practice tons but he has waited for this day since he was little! HIGH SCHOOL RODEO!
Even though cowboy life has changed over the past 150 years, cowboys still honor and live by their code. They are a source of inspiration that reaches back into our history, yet still speaks to us today. At a time when hero's are in short supply, cowboys are the real deal.

"Rodeo embodies the frontier spirit as manifested through the aggressive and exploitative conquest of the West, and deals with...the reordering of nature according to the dictates of this ethos. It supports the value of subjugating nature, and reenacts the 'taming' process whereby the wild is brought under control" - -Lawrence.

Colby and KarLee hanging out together!
(I had to get a picture of that!)
I didn't get the bubble before it popped!
It was way cool! There were ropes that were
attached to a hula hoop, in a pool of bubbles!
The kids could stand in the pool and they would
pull the ropes up around the kids and then the
bubble would pop!
I forgot my camera(of course) so I snap some pictures with my phone.
The school raffled off some games and showed us some different homemade activities to try at home!
KarLee really enjoys going to school activities and having mommy help out! Colby was a good sport and played with his sister!

We lost Stubbs.......
She will be missed by all, loved by all!
She love to lay on the couch and play with
KarLee or my hair and she would rub
her little head on Ryan's mustache.
She was such a playful and a very curious cat.
Loved attention from anyone that would give it to her.
All the kids always seemed like Stubbs!
We will always love you Stubbs!
