first year of volleyball

emery and lucia played their first season of volleyball and I coached their team.  they loved the balls they chose, having their own water bottles and the girls on their team! it was a short season and we learned a little about volleyball.  they think they are "real players!" it was fun and interesting to coach the girls for the first time:)

millers. . bloomsday. .basketball . . the best!

we had the most wonderful weekend.  the miller family came to portland for a long weekend and it was magical.  the boys went to spokane and had their own adventures.  kinkade ran bloomsday and broke his record by a minute.  keagan traveled with the degenharts to yakima to compete in a basketball tournament with the warriors.  the boys squeezed in some friend time too and of course a visit to Dr. Grummons to get bottom braces on.  They even flew on their first solo flight home and did great!
