I can't believe that I forgot to post about our trip to Disneyland last month. Sandy and I were realizing that the boys and girl, especially the biggest boy, were getting to the age where the "magic" of Disneyland was disappearing. So we decided to spend a few days there for one last family vacation while they're all still "kids."

Congrats to Emery! She graduated up to the next gymnastics class.
She's worked on this one for a couple of months - the pull-over and back hip circle.
The back walk-over until took 1 day. Emery loves her gymnastics! We're glad she's having fun and working hard at it too.

Our Bible verse memorization has taken a hit the past year. I've managed to keep the boys and girl maintaining their verses but have not added too many for a while. But at our new church, Community Bible Church, the boys and girl go to a children's program where they have been memorizing the book of Philippians. With the move and all, we didn't really get into the program fully until this year. So we are now back in the swing of things and have been memorizing Philippians 3.

Another year, another basketball season for Andrew. This year, his team is the Trojans. We won't hold that against him. Go Bruins!
I did a horrible job behind the camera. I spent more time watching the game then actually filming it. So imagine all the incredible basketball that happened before he scored. This was an out of bounds play that worked to perfection.
Andrew's coach is really good this year. He's an actual coach with years of experience. And his team is quite good too. Most of the kids in his division are in 7th and 8th grades. So it's been good to see Andrew hold his own against older kids. Maybe it's the new prescription goggles that are giving him a boost!
Andrew plays pretty focused defense and manages to score almost 10 points a game. He's having a lot of fun with this new level of competition and intensity. I really enjoy talking with him after practices and games about his play.
