Graduation went well. Once again I did some up-to-the-last moment editing on the senior slide show. It all turned out well. The worst thing that happened was that I got word our yearbooks would not get here in time for the yearbook signing party. The main company once again screwed up. They blamed the economy because they laid off a bunch of people that worked in their web design department. They violated our contract still. I really don't know when we'll get the yearbooks. I'd like to go back to the cd version. That way I know that things will go well and I have complete control over everything. If people want a book, they can print the pages out themselves.
A couple of weeks ago, I got home and there was a package from our California friend John Scarett. He sent it to Kennan. I had no idea what it was until Kennan opened it, this is what he sent to Kennan:
Yes, they are Laker shirts. Kennan is a huge fan of the Lakers. Right now he is pretty excited that the Lakers are in the Finals. He is currently playing in a team basketball camp in Evanston. It is a camp for high school JV teams. Coach Fiscus asked if Kennan wanted to go and he did. Kennan is actually playing in some of the games. Here he is a sixth grader and he is playing against sophomores. He loves it. Earlier in the month of May, they had World Day for Kennan's class here are some more pictures of that. Kennan did Mexico, if you couldn't tell.
This next picture is his entire class. Yes it is a big class and yes there are a lot of boys in the class and yes it is hard to think that we will not have a kid in the elementary next year. All our kids that will be home will be at the high school. And one final yes, yes I am getting old.
The boys and girls track team finished off the season by placing 2nd in both the boys and girls division. For the boys, it was quite a feat. They only had 5 who qualified for state and they scored 75 points. The girls made it closer than what some may have thought. Both teams lost to Burlington. It was a good year for the tracksters.
Brady sent us an email telling us how he and his companion have been tracting by horseback. It is hard to believe that he only has 41 days left, but who is counting. Back to the horse riding, he did send us a picture of how he and his companion are doing it.
I doubt that they will get any where using that horse. He is loving his mission and doing well.
McKenzie will be starting volleyball camp next week, then basketball camp, then more camps. A new era of volleyball will be starting next week. It is hard to believe that I am now the head honcho. Because of this, I quit being the faculty advisor to the student council. I wasn't getting paid to do this so it wasn't a big deal. Then the person who is taking my place told me that he is getting paid to do it. I checked with the office and it is true, after all these years, I was suppose to get paid as the advisor. The reason I wasn't getting paid is because when I first started, the secretary at that time told me that they don't pay student council advisors. So I never checked back. I only missed out on about $10,000. But I did get paid this year. If I wasn't a bishop and a head coach, I would still be the advisor, paid or not paid. I enjoyed working with the students.
Our other missionary also sent us a picture. Yes Trevor has put on a little weight. Not much though. Don says Trevor weighs about 215. He started to lose the weight at his last area because he had to ride a bike. Now he is back in a car. There goes his weight loss.
That is about it for now. The family is doing well. I'll post some more things later. Some things that will shock you!! Not really. Just want to keep you in suspense.
