There are things in life that just doesn't come easy, you have to work hard and earned it yourself, if you really wanted badly. Our kids are starting to get the hints. Justin had been thinking about playing high school football at first, somehow he changed his mind and wanted to play soccer instead. He saved up his money and used it for whatever needed for soccer. Justin stayed after school and practice day after day knowing there are 50 kids trying out for soccer, and a lot of them had been playing since they were 5 years of age. So he had a lot of pressure on him. He has to be good to be able to make the team since coach will only pick 27 out of 50 players.The last several weeks he came home with big appetites. I was wondering why until one day I dropped Kailee off at school for a basketball practice and I went to see if Justin needed a ride, I realized that the soccer kids were working hard at the Field right after school till 5 or 6. These last three days were try outs. After working hard for several weeks, Justin made the team. He is so excited. It was his dream and passion. He did it on his own.
A couple of weeks before Valentines Tyler had asked me to make dinner for him, his date (Stephanie), Tayler and his date(Jessica) before the Stake dance. I didn't really say anything. A week pass by, I told Tyler that I didn't really want to spend all day cooking on Valentines Day. Paul said I'll take you out for diner honey, whatever you want. Somehow Kailee heard me talking to Tyler and she said "I'll make you guys dinner Tyler!" So I told her that I will help. Valentines Day come, Kailee got up and went horse riding with Paul. When she got back we started on the dinner. She was very creative. It turned out awesome! We had a very nice candle light dinner. We enjoyed our steak and shrimps, mashed potatoes, salad and fabalous dessert. Kailee, Justin and Sunnie served us. Kailee also got to go to her first Stake Dance Saturday. Can't believe she is old enough!
