31 for 21 | day 1 | 9.29.2012

Ok. So I cheated just a bit for the very 1st 31 for 21 post for 2012! LOL! Sue me...  :)

Saturday, Matthew competed in his 1st Special Olympics Golf Skills Contest. He has done swimming the last couple of years, baseball for 3 years at least and basketball for 2 years, but this is our first year with golf. He has done very well at practices, listening to the coaches and has added to his skills - LOL! Of course, this weekend, it decided to warm up again and was over 100 degrees that day. Ugh. But we had a nice time and he had fun!!!
We got there an hour early (as we were asked to) with plenty of time to try on his new shirt, pose for some photos and spend a little time on the driving range.
Next year, we now know to get there and have breakfast at the Club House...

Stylin' man...

Then it was onto the start of the competition...  They were given 5 shots in 6 different areas.

Then it was all tallied up on his score card...

And it was time to relax and watch the players finishing up!

Awards time!!! Taking home the silver!!!!!!

With his buddy, the Gold medalist!!!!!   :)

The state competitions are coming up early Nov. and we're hoping to attend. Hoping also that in the next few years, he will move out of the "skills" level and be ready to tackle the greens...

Saturday was a busy day. Matthew had Golf, Ryan has his 1st Band Competition of the season and I have my 1st photo session of the season. Too bad it decided to be so hot today! :)


Mesa High JROTC | Freshman

Ryan received his uniform for JROTC this week and wore it for the 1st time on Thursday. He looks entirely too grown up!


SO City Swim Meet | Sept. 15th, 2012

Matthew swam the 25 meter freestyle and the 50 meter freestyle this year. He was a little more "seasoned" about it all this year. Next year he is going to be all over it!

He took home 4th place in the 25 meter...

With one of his buddies!

He took home a silver medal in the 50 meter freestyle!!!

With another buddy!

It's kinda funny for all this time when we'd talk about swimming fast for a medal with his this year, he'd say he was going to get 2nd - a silver medal. And low and behold - he did!

And here's a video of him swimming the 25 meter race...


MHSBand Performance | Sept. 14th, 2012

It was Junior High Night on this Friday night. Michael & I were to go alone and leave Matthew at Gma's, but Michael came down with the cold I've had and we realized that Matthew had his City Swim Meet bright and early the next morning, so they stayed home and rested.

Ryan with one of his buddy's that's also in ROTC with him.


Labor Day | Picture Day | 2012

We had a pretty quiet Labor Day weekend. No swim practice, so 3 days of whatever we wanted. We ended up going out to shoot on Monday morning. The boys had a blast!

Matthew had his picture day at school and I thought he looked so sharp, that I took a few photos myself before he left for school...


Lately | 9.12.2012

We have begun football season around here. Not as the parents of a player, but as proud Band Member Parents - LOL! This was from the very 1st football game...

Coming back from Concessions...

Circled up, getting ready for halftime. It was too muddy to march though, so they circled up again on the field.

The next week was an away game, so the 3 of us stayed home. This last weekend, the band dressed out in their uniforms for the 1st time, but it had rained most of the day and the field was way too wet to march. Michael and I again decided to stay home (we want to see them MARCH!!!). It was Mesa HS's 1000 game, which was pretty exciting. They had fireworks and other celebrations. I have a couple of sweet friends that took some photos for me...

Again - muddier this week yet and with the uniforms on, they circled up on the track.
 This one I took off the internet...  Ryan is the 2nd from the right.

Matthew has been doing alot of  Special Olympic sports - swimming on Saturdays and new this year to him - golf on Tuesday evenings.
