PVHS baseball on Tuesday night had their Senior Night. Leslie Walker and her daughter Lakynn really went all out for our boys and their mothers. They had incredible decorations up, big posters of all the senior players, and wonderful gifts. It is so hard to believe that Carter is actually a senior and will be graduating in two short weeks! We played the first place, #1 ranked team - Desert Hills and defeated them 10-2. This set up an exciting game for Friday night - the winner would be the Region 9 Champions and the first place seed going into the state tournament. After an exciting and hard fought battle the Panthers came out on top once again... The score was 4-2 and the game was played at Thunder Stadium. Pine View will host three other teams on Saturday for the first round of the state playoffs. We are so excited!
Here at the old adobe we are starting to make plans for the addition and the pool. Carter and Ty have grown tired of sharing the queen sized be so Ty has been sleeping on a mat on the living room floor the past few nights. Looks like I'll be ordering some bunk beds today! I'm also growing a little weary of the small kitchen, but I've got some great plans for the addition! I'll keep you posted as it unfolds. I'm meeting with a pool guy tomorrow to do some measurements. We will obtain estimates from three different contractors. It will sure be interesting. One things for sure... I will have an outdoor fireplace! Can't Wait!
Here is a wonderful letter I received this week from Victoria in Sweden! Thank you Victoria for your thoughtfulness and for taking care of my boy!
Dear elder's families,
I just wanted to send you a sign of how your sons, your elders, are doing from the very north of Sweden.
From a mother to a mother, I know that this can mean so much for a normal day, when everything you wait for, is that EMAIL :)
Elder Larsen is doing so well here , with his swedish!!! Amazing! He has served 4 month and speaking swedish is so natural for him ( the way we hear it...we do know he has to struggle ...but he does have a gift to learn languages I understand ). He asks for words, what to say and how you say it, and then - he just remembers it! For a woman like me...with a brain that is tired and full of have to do things, want to do things, and everything between that, I am just so amazed!!!
Elder Milne gave a touching talk in church last sunday and he talked about his younger brother...who gave away a Book of mormon...what a sweet story..what a Strong brother, person , what a good example of love and faith.
Elder Milne talked about how he has changed and that he learned so much from his brother.
Your Elders, are serving with love and joy! We are so happy to have them here, in Piteå, for dinner and in Luleå branch to help us teach the gospel to the Norrbotten area :).
I do think we had elder Larsen´s brother over for Tacodinner, when he served in Skellefteå? Is that right?
We met Elder Milne last Christmas , when he served in Umeå and he was at my husband's sister´s home. He was a new missionary and he was a bit shy and quiet. It is so much joy to see him now talking and being open and relaxed!
I guess he wrote that he went back to Umeå for our district conference, and he could now talk and understand when people talked to him <3!
I want to say thank you for everything you have done, to fill your sons with love, faith and joy for the gospel.
We will take good care of them, and we hope we will bring someone for them to teach!
