Courtney is busy with volleyball at the school, she does great, don’t let her fool you. But I know her first love is me, oh wait I mean softball. Keegan is working hard at his next season which is baseball. Can’t wait to see what that little munchkin will do in the future, he is such a natural athlete.

We are also glad that Brandon is going back to CC in the summer. Courtney’s tryouts and softball going well and Keeg… well he is going to do his best to keep everyone busy. Good job Keegan. Hope your week is going well. Love to all

a moms love

February 24, 2009 by  

Just checking in and letting everyone know how proud of my children I am. First ther is Brandon, you all know he has been strugling with the decision as to go back to Casper, or stay in Fort Collins? Well he has made the choice to go back to school in Casper, for this we are very proud of him. He is truely an amazing young man, and we feel his choice will serve him well in the future. Great choice Big B, know we will miss you lots but support your decision. Next there is Nathan, well he is a much stronger person than his father and I are. We have both been trying to figure out why he did not place at the state wrestling tourament. But Natie has the right answers. Just that it was not in Gods plan. How mature is that? Much better than I!!!!!!! Nate we are so proud of you, you are awesome at all you do! Keep up the great work. Sissy, well she is busting her you know what at volleyball try-outs. She is great because she always gives 100 percent at all she does. We are proud of her too! Good luck Courtney Morgan, go for all your dreams! Just so you all know she is doing awesome at softball, she is an amazing young lady. And then there is Keegan, well he is going to wrestle in the all state tournament this weekend. Along with wrestling he is busy with baseball practice. He is such a natual at all he does we are sure he will be just fine. Well Tony and I are good too. Just busy trying to keep up. We sure love you all and can’t wait to be able to spend some time with everyont. Just don’t know when that will be. Love you all so much! See I am getting better at this blogging thing! Love, Wendy

Nate Steps Up!!!

February 22, 2009 by  

Well it happens to all of us —- we get older. Things change – life takes unexpected turns – basically we grow up. It happened to The Mom and I (some would argue if I ever really have grown up mentally), it happened to our children, and now our grandkids are finding they have to step up. The Big B is in the process (doesn’t happen overnight) – and now Nate is starting the journey.
Nate has worked his proverbial backside off developing his wrestling skills. He has sacrificed, he has stumbled, but Nate has never been counted out. He has always come back. Some people have it handed to them, some people earn it, and some people never get it. Nate is one of the “earners”. He works hard, keeps his eye on the brass ring, accepts setbacks, and keeps on going after it. And Nate will get it. I have absolutely no doubt.
Nate really “stepped up” this weekend. He finished out his High School wrestling career with alot of “firsts” – put his name where it can never be erased in the history of FossilRidge HighSchool. BUT – he fell a little short of the State title and had to accept that after all of his hard work. And he will. Nate stepped up —— he matured alot more in the past couple of weeks than he can possibly realize today. He learned some valuable (though not necessarily “feel good”) lessons about life and he learned them like a man. You take what God wants you to get and you deal with it —– asking why is useless because God’s plans are not easily interpreted. But you are bigger, you are wiser, and you mature with those lessons.
I was laying awake feeling for Nate the other night. Next morning I sent him a text relaying my pride in him. What I got back I will never forget – cause Nate “stepped up”. Here are some words from the text reply I received from Nate that brought big tears of pride to my eyes: ” yeah, I’m okay. It just wasn’t God’s plan for me.” He then just relayed his hope that there were good things in his future. What a man Nate is. Took the results and is ready to move forward. Nate stepped up! Oh …. and lest there be any doubt in anyone’s mind – I am totally confident there are much bigger and better things to come in Nates future.
Wendy & Tony – you have done a masterful job with numbers 1 and 2, and 3 & 4 look just as promising. God Bless you and thank you for your strong, tight-knit family and the ethic you have instilled in your children. Fruit doesn’t fall too far from the tree.
Just had a text from Wendy. Keegan is 1 – 0 in his matches today. And Courtney has softball practice today. They just don’t slow down in Colorado folks!

Ryan and Spencer still in Oklahoma watching OSU play BYU. Dusty Harvard, one of Ryans old players, is playing for OSU. Ryan texts that it is pretty cold down there – and i am guessing he will come home with a fever of sorts – baseball & coaching fever is my prediction.

Steph & Mike & Ashley & Stephen busy here. My mom said she enjoyed a trip out to Johnny J’s with them last night. She really appreciates getting out of her “home” occasionally – thanks to them for taking her along.

I sure have alot to be thankful for and my family tops the list. I could go on & on —- and I probably will in future blogs —– today i just want to pay tribute to Nate ….. I love you nate and I could never be prouder. You really stepped up Taters!
