23-0 Undefeated 4A State Champions!

I was going to wait and post a detailed account of everything that happened! But in order to give the entire week justice, I figured I had better take a little time to write! So, in the mean time... these pictures say it all! :) What an incredible DAY! WEEK! SEASON! Wow! One of the girls said it like this:

best team. best coaches. best day. best friends.

There isn't a group of girls who deserve it more than them! More details to come! :) Until then... enjoy the pictures! The excitement on their faces just makes me smile!

My new favorite cheer! :) Some have argued it shows bad sportsmanship to do a cheer like this? The only thing they're doing is stating the obvious! :) Unfortunately there always has to be a winner and a loser. But... it's part of playing the game! (You'll have to pause the music playlist down at the bottom!)

Is that not the scoreboard?
Yes that is the scoreboard!
Is that not a 74?
Yes that is a 74.
Is that not a 62?
Yes that is a 62?
Is that not the winning team?
Yes that is the winning team!
Is that not the losing team?
Yes that is the losing team!
Winning team! Losing team! Winning team! Losing team! Winning team! Losing team! Winning team! Losing team! Winning team! Losing team!

:) Good one huh?! :)


Sorry for the hiatus... it's been a busy couple of weeks... more details to follow! :) When I have time to actually blog about it! BUT... in the mean time... there's been plenty of Olympic watching! I absolutely love the Olympics. I prefer the summer to the winter! But enjoy them still the same. Doesn't matter what the sport is, if the USA is competing, I'm watching! :) Hearing the chants of "USA, USA, USA" is so exciting! I've decided that... I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to win an Olympic gold medal. (A little too late? Maybe.)

Every time someone wins, seeing them stand on the podium, receiving their medal, and listening to the national anthem of the United States of America, gives me the chills, I tear up, and wish more than anything that I could experience it! How awesome would that be? I've come to the conclusion that since coaches don't get Olympic medals (although if I won one as a coach, I wouldn't complain. haha), my one and final hope to win one is... CURLING! I better start practicing! :) Perhaps I should learn the rules first!

Happenings of the past week or so! :)

Lots has happened over the past week or so! :)

We had a BYE last Friday and so it was a fun filled week of basketball! We had a "Hoosiers" practice. We watched Hoosiers, and taught everyone how to shoot an underhanded freethrow like Ollie! :) If I would have only known this was the solution to our free throw problems! We would have done this a long time ago! Okay, not really! But we did watch the movie! Many hadn't seen it. Tragic, I know! Saturday we went to the BYU vs. UNLV women's basketball game, to watch Ashley (who now plays for UNLV and played for us last year!) and have a little team activity! It was way fun! We went out to dinner afterwards! I've said it before, I get to coach some of the COOLEST people ever! :) They're so funny! (You can almost see everyone in this picture)

Sunday we had a little get together for Ryan before he left for his mission to Belgium/Netherlands! As always, it was quite the party! Amy promised me pictures... I have yet to see them! This is the only one I've seen thus far! We also got to watch the Super Bowl! I was cheering for Wade's Colts and Austin Collie... but apparently it wasn't meant to be! I felt okay about the Saints winning though, since they had never won before!

Tuesday, we got to take a nice little trip out to Uintah, a 3 1/2 hour bus ride! Took me back to my good 'ol high school bus riding days to games! I forgot what it was like, since we are spoiled and most of the teams we play are 20 minutes away! It actually went by kind of quick and it was a fun little trip! All the girls slept pretty much! Us coaches had fun at the front of the bus! :) Glad we only have to do it once! :)

Mitch came down for President's Day weekend. We went to Uncle Steve and Aunt Patty's for a couple days. We watched Greg play some basketball. Can I just say, one rule that should be taught to little kids, especially seventh graders, these seventh graders at least. WHEN YOU ARE FOULING AT THE END OF THE GAME, you HAVE to go for the ball! These kids just shoved the kids to the ground. I'm not talking a little shove. It was border line football tackle! It got a little violent! Aunt Patty had to restrain me, I about got myself thrown out of the gym. (JOKE! Not even close!) But really! GO FOR THE BALL! Overall though, it was a nice, fun, relaxing weekend!

Tonight, we had a Valentine's dinner at Rosemary's! It was fantastic as usual. Good food, cool people, fun times! Although Scattergories got a little heated, overall I would say everyone had a good time. We're all a little too competitive! Ha!

Life is great. Really great.

Good Days! :)

Yesterday, was a pretty excellent day.

Started off with SLEEPING IN! That is always a plus!

I headed over to BYU to listen to Rosemary speak at BYU devotional. We had front row seats! She did so great, and gave a wonderful talk! I've already said it in previous posts! She is AWESOME!

Afterwards we went out to eat at Brick Oven. Delicious. And fun to have lunch with some of us who had the best seats in the house! I mean we were on the Marriott Center FLOOR (like where they play basketball :) haha)!

And to top off the excellent day... we swept Spanish Fork! 3 wins for the night not bad! And NO technical fouls! It was a successful night! :) Have I mentioned what a freaking awesome bunch of girls I get to coach. :) Seriously. They are great!

It's always nice to have a good day isn't it?!
