Last High School Soccer Season

Even though the girls might play soccer (Hayleigh really doesn't care, and Kirsten would rather hang out at home), it is surreal that this is our last year ever of having a son playing high school soccer!  We've been doing this for so many years, it's going to seem so very strange next fall.... Overall, it's been so much fun!  There's been many highs and proud moments - like Kyle being voted to receive the Raider Award by his team mates, Keenan scoring the most goals his senior year, Tyler making the Record and Landmark all-county team, Ethan getting the MVP award his senior year, and Dallin being the top scorer for the JV team.  There's also been many stressful moments - like Kyle breaking his nose during a game, Keenan getting a yellow card while he was waiting to be subbed in, Tyler getting a red card because he was the last defender and fouled a player who had a goal scoring opportunity, Ethan dislocating his shoulder several times in games, and Dallin getting 5 yellow cards in 7 games and having to sit out a game in the beginning of the season!
(and yes, Brandee, had I realized that your sisters aren't all that interested in playing soccer, I would've had a blog post just like this one for your last season.  You never know, I still might post some of those photos anyway!!)

For All Eternity

On Saturday, September 14th, Tyler, Caitlin, and Emmy were sealed together as a family at the Washington DC Temple.  It was a beautiful (and long!) day!

Getting Ready to Go

Last week, Ethan and I went shopping for mission stuff.  (We also went to Philly Pretzel Factory and Rita's!) After having Kyle and Keenan go on their missions, we sort of have a good idea of what Ethan will actually NEED on his mission.  Since he's going to Arizona, we figured that instead of long sleeved shirts, short sleeved ones would be better - except we couldn't find a single one!  I ended up ordering them online - really hoping that they'll be here ASAP!  Having too much stuff as a missionary is just not fun to pack up and move from area to area.  Packing too much from home doesn't make sense either, since Brandee and Scott meet the boys in SLC and can take them shopping for all of the 'stuff' that takes up too much room in a suitcase or that the airlines won't let you take anyway.  Ethan was also able to go through the Temple yesterday at the same time as Tyler and Caitlin - it was such a wonderful day for our family!  Ethan is going to spend the next 15 days (YES - THAT'S ALL HE HAS LEFT HERE!!) packing up the things he wants to store for after his mission and packing up what he wants to take.  We're sure going to miss him, but 2 years goes by so quickly!

First Day of School 2013

It's come as quite the shock to us, but believe it or not - we only have 3 - yes, THREE!! - children in school this year!  One in Elementary, one in Middle, and a Senior!  So very bizarre....

Kirsten eating breakfast and looking semi-happy (until she came home and realized she was just too tired to play and school takes up too much time!).

Hayleigh - in 8th grade (early morning seminary for her next year!).  She is going to be the cross-country team manager.  She 'gets to' (hahahaha!) run with the team, but doesn't have to compete.  She's not fond of competition.  Just like the rest of the Watson family - (hope you hear the sarcasm!).

Dallin - Senior!!
