March 2014

Kaleb had his last basketball game on March 1st. His team did really well and we had great coaches that made sure the kids had fun.

Kaleb did great in the district spelling bee. He was so small compared to all of the other kids who were mostly jr. high aged. He ended up getting eliminated on a word we had practiced that day that he had trouble with so I knew he might get it wrong but he made it through 5 rounds.

On Thursday evenings there were wrestling tournaments at different high schools. There were always so many people crammed into these high school gyms it was a couple hours of chaos. And they typically want your kids by the mats and parents in the stands so you're not sitting with your kid while they're waiting. There weren't as many kids Kaleb's age and weight and so most of the time he was with a kid that was much taller and 5-10lbs heavier but he's a good sport and didn't mind that he lost most of his matches. The kids his age and up are more serious about wrestling and Kaleb just wanted something fun to do. He was really good though at making sure not to get pinned.

Each week they would learn a new move in practice and Ashton would always use that move during his matches. You can tell by this video they learned how to take down their opponent by grabbing their leg. Ashton won almost all of his matches and loved practicing with Matt in the basement. I was amazed how quick he picked up on everything. He's always been a wrestler so we knew he would love it.

 Not a great picture but I had bought new shoes for Olivia and when I put them on her at the apartment she wouldn't move. She stood there holding on to the chair like her feet were glued to the floor. I finally moved her feet for her to show her she could walk. Something about new shoes threw her off.

Olivia loves "working" in my office. My business cards are her favorite but in this picture she had recently discovered the phone on the fax machine.  She grabbed a stool and pen and was talking on the phone while drawing. Such a hard worker.

 In March we also started constructing a bathroom in our basement. Because new plumbing needed to be installed we paid a contractor in our ward to do the plumbing and drywall and we did the rest. It's one thing to replace existing plumbing but another to put new plumbing in and we wanted to make sure everything was to code and done right especially when it's plumbing in concrete that would be a pain to fix later. We also enjoyed the warm March we had and took many walks, visits to the park and went on bike rides as a family. Olivia loves riding in the bike trailer and even her helmet doesn't bother her anymore.
