Jake behind the ball.

Jake is our Chicago Land Grandson. He is 6 and in the 1st grade. Unfortunately, we can not make it to his soccer games so I had Jane to take some pictures for the blog. Aunt Joy was telling me a funny story about Jake making a goal and then trying to do a belly bump with a team mate in celebration. I might have to come back and edit this story. Jake is a cool kid with a great sense of humer. We all love him, miss him and wish he were closer.

The February Birthdays are Peyton and Angie. Peyton turned 13!!!! You have seen Peyton featured in the blog several times. She plays soccer, basketball, and volleyball. She is also in band and plays the saxophone and was inducted into the honor society in her grade. We are all very proud of her.

Bob received an award where he works called "Circle of Excellence". Approximately 80 other people also received this award. This was an all expense, all inclusive trip to Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico to stay at the Las Velas Resort for the employees and their spouses or guest. We had many activities while we were there including a boat trip to Las Caletas, and an ATV ride in the mountains and countryside, and many other things to choose from. Some played golf or went to the spa. It was absolutely a wonderful experience. Everyone working at the hotel was so accommodating. You could say we were spoiled for a few days.

This is Peyton, number 15, playing on her seventh grade basket ball team. She is very athletic and excels in all of the sports she participates in. Their team has done very well this year. Last Monday the team was at a disadvantage because their star player fouled out right away and things went downhill from there. Regardless, they have high hopes for the district tournaments next week.
