We've been busy & we've got the pictures to prove it

Our family friend Sydney turned 18 this past Friday - she has a full-ride gymnastics scholarship to the University of Iowa 2011.

Coop started football practice almost a month ago - they had their first "game" on Saturday. It was our conference Jamboree - each team played four times, 20 minutes each game. Coop's number 85 & plays tight end and defensive tackle (I really don't know what that means but he's excited about the positions)
waiting on the sidelines before the game - he's turned sideways
Coop & his buddy Brock (they are the same age)
Coop & his #1 fan

Wow! That is a lot of pictures, which proves you have been busy! Piper has changed so much in the last year, it is just amazing. I love the bows you always have in her hair. She's so cute!
