Vball Over, Paydon Turns 1, and 2 New Family Members

Volleyball season was a success. District, Bi-Dist, Area Champs, 8th in the state, and I was Dist Coach of the Year and All West Texas Co-Coach of the Year. I couldn't have done any of it w/ out the support of Pedro and my awesome kiddos. Paydon is now 1, but yet to walk. Mom and Dad are coming Christmas Eve so we're saying he's waiting for them. Libby and Emma are busy w/ gymnastics. Libby is actually on the team at Concho Valley Gymnastics, the youngest on the team. She's also busy getting herself and her horse Shorty ready to tryout for junior barrel racing in the rodeo in February. We got two new horses, our new family members, Charley and Snickers. Now we can all ride as a family.

Just wanted to post the cutest picture ever of the kids, the one at the top of the page. My little man is crawling all over the place. He's pulling up and standing now too. Pedro has the girls w/ him at his HS reunion. He wanted to show them off. I have a game so Paydon and I stayed home. Speaking of vball games, I wanted everyone to know how proud I am of my state ranked team! Go Grape Creek!

My team won 1st place yesterday at the Breckenridge Varsity Tournament. I'm so proud of them!

I'm also so proud of my little Libby. She started Kindergarten last Monday. I can't believe she's old enough for real school. Tears were in our eyes that morning.

Just some pics of the kids. Paydon is crawling now and pulling himself up on things.

They must be mine, they love to play vball already!

Look at Libby do push ups!

We love Grape Creek Volleyball!

Last Days of Summer, for a coach anyway!

Here are a few pics of the last couple of weeks. Libby was participating as much as she could w/ my team at vball camp. The others are of us on the way down to Corpus (girls asleep in the car) to see Pedro's mom in the hospital and to his cousin's daughter's quincinera. The girls had a blast dancing and enjoyed watching daddy dance w/ his neice. Paydon had his first taste of spaghetti, a Wednesday night tradition since I was a kid. Libby and Emma went to cheer camp, here they are w/ their favorite cheerleader Morgan. The kids got their new Grape Creek shirts and wore them yesterday for my first scrimmage. Yep, vball season has started!

Nana and Papa here(Papa's book is done!), 4th of July, Swimming, and a cute Level 3 Gymnast

My parents came to town to help w/ the kids b/c I was really sick w/ a GI tract infection. My dad has written a book on a NCAA football playoff and he received it in the mail when he was in San Angelo. He's going to be a best selling author! We made 4th of July pancakes, a Sunday ritual, we just decorated them for the 4th! Pedro had to work on the 4th so the kids and I went w/ one of my friends and her son to see fireworks. The family went to the pool yesterday! Libby has been chosen from her kindergym class to be the youngest in the competition level class. She'll start competing in Sept. I'm not big on the "sport" of gymnastics b/c the whole judging thing, but I'm so proud of her success and she loves it. I just think of it as it helping her just be an awesome athlete. I mean all the former gymnasts I coach are our highest jumpers and strongest. That'll be Libby. Let's see if Emma will follow in her footsteps someday.
