Football season is over for the Worland Warriors. They made it to the playoffs for the first time in 9 years!  They lost the first game of the playoffs, but it was a good season.  The Football banquet was tonight and Andrew received a few awards.  He got his varsity letter and MVP offensive player as well as the Junior special teams award for his punting.  He had a great season!

Eric, the wrestler

Eric has been doing really well this year in wrestling. His first meet in Lovell he came in first place in the B bracket. They moved him up to the A bracket and the meet in Thermop didn't go as well. But, he rallied and today at the meet in Greybull he wrestled in the A bracket and came in second. He pinned his first guy and looked really good. Way to go Eric!
Click below to watch his third period pin. I stopped the video a second too soon as the ref slapped the mat for a pin.

Halloween came and went.  It's not my favorite holiday, but Eric is especially creative and I had to post his costume.

The right half of him is Link and the left half is Rhett from the YouTube channel Good Mythical Morning.  The logo on his shirt is the show's logo that he cut out and taped to his shirt. It's a pretty funny show and this costume catches Eric's personality well.

I haven't posted any Van pics in awhile, so here is one:

Utah State Football Game

The boys drove to Logan last week to watch Utah State play Wyoming in football.  Wyoming won, but they were really there to see Palmer in the drum line.

All the boys are wearing different teams logos!

Palmer is second from right

General conference weekend

Our conference weekend started in Thermopolis at the cross country meet.  Lucy and Eric both ran and did well.  It was a beautiful morning at the Thermop Golf Course.  There was a last minute addition to the race-an antelope ran through the kids to escape all the people.

Here comes Lucy!

Come on Lucy catch that girl!

Lucy ended up passing the girl in front of her.

Eric's the tall one

Look at that form and my shadow as I'm taking the picture

Eric came in 17th place and Lucy came in 49th.  There were four schools running in this meet: Worland, Lander, Riverton, and Thermopolis.

We came home and watched General Conference, it was wonderful!

Andy, Lucy, Peter, and our fab neighbors Macy and Fiona, Emma and Eric are watching too, but out of the picture

Peter ended his 2 week swimming course that is part of the elementary school curriculum this last week.  He doesn't much like it when I take his picture, so I was sneaky.

I caught the elusive Peter!

The cross country meet this week was a home one at the golf course.  Eric had a PR in his mile split-6:23. He keeps improving each week.  Lucy did better as well.

Big storms hit...even some snow on the mountain in Cody!

Lucy and Eric and doing well in cross country.  They've been running in the rain, which is the best weather to run in!
