The Beautiful White Mountains

What a beautiful sight. The White Mountains will always be home to me even if I don't live there anymore.

This is our 3rd year to go up to Sunrise Ski Resort in October and get free season passes for the kids. All the kids except Korey got passes this year. We are able to use them all season. It was cold this weekend. We had strong winds and heavy rain. We waited for a break in the rain to ride the lift to the top of the mountain and back. I wanted to take a camera and take pictures of the breathtaking views on the way down the mountain. However, due to the rain, I decided I had better leave the camera in the car to be safe.

Can't wait to get back up to Sunrise to go skiing this year. The kids are looking forward to it.

Soccer Season in Full Swing

Kameron and Kaulin are on the same soccer team this year. They are doing great. This year they haven't had a fist fight with each other, so I think we are making progress. I think they could both be really good if they learned to work together more. (They haven't realized that by being brothers on the same team, they could actually get more practice in at home.)
Kaulin will run all over the field after the ball and he is not scared to take it away from the other team. Whatever you tell him to do, he will do. Kameron is probably the fastest runner on the team. We just have to keep him motivated to play up to his potential.
It has been fun going to their games. They have a great coach, good team and wonderful team parents.


We went camping at the Head of the Ditch in Luna, NM over Labor day weekend. This was our traditional Wiltbank reunion that we have every year - same time, same place. The kids enjoyed being with cousins and meeting new cousins. The tire swing was a "hit" for all the kids to enjoy. So were the rockets the kids could launch. Can't wait for next year.
