Colony Knights 3/4 playoff game

The Colony Knights 3/4 team was in first place going into the playoffs. After a slow start and three turnovers the Knights ended up beating the Wasilla Warriors 38-0! Logan was one of the captains for this game.
I took this picture so everyone can see what football is like here in Alaska. Notice the snow-covered mountains.
Logan is getting some advice from "Coach Dean"/Daddy during halftime. I think he was more interested in the oranges than anything else. Ed was the coach for the Colony Knights Green 7/8 team.
The Colony Knights after the game. Still Undefeated!!





The Stripe Comes Off!

Before the playoff games all the players had to weigh in again. Logan was hoping that he had lost enough weight to get the stripe off his helmet. The max weight was 103 and he ended up weighing 101.8. He was so excited to take the stripe of his helmet.

His teammates had to join in and help him take the stripe off.

Katie's Birthday

Katie turned seven today. I can't believe that our baby girl is already seven and in the first grade. The time has gone by so fast. Her birthday was on a Sunday this year so we had her little party after church.
Here she is posing with her cake. She helped decorate her cake and that is why all the sprinkles are in the middle of the cake.
She really wanted a pillow pet for her birthday this year, but they don't sell them anywhere up here in Alaska. They also don't ship here. We went throught so much trouble so she could get her pillow pet but seeing her smile when she opened it was well worth it. She got the unicorn which see has since named "Magical".

Colony Knights 3/4

Logan is loving playing football. He is the center for his team and does a great job. He is #55. If you are wondering why he has a stripe on his helmet and none of his teammates do, it's because he is considered overweight for his age group. The kids with the stripes on their helmets cannot carry the ball because they "could hurt the smaller kids".
Here are a couple of pictures of "Mean Dean" in action.
Logan is the one snapping the ball to the quarterback.

The First "Football" Injury

Austin went over to a friend's house on Thursday and was playing on the trampoline. While on the trampoline he got his finger caught on Logan's leg and his finger got bent backwards. He went to football practice that night and the next night and even played in his game on Saturday. On Sunday he told us that his finger was really hurting and when we looked, it was swollen and black and blue. We decided to take him to the hospital and they confirmed that it was broken. He couldn't practice for one week and he had to have a splint for two weeks. Luckily, his team had a bye week so he never missed a game.
