VSCO Girls at the U-High Football Game

For the football game tonight, the kids were supposed to dress like a VSCO girl.  What is a VSCO girl?
VSCO girl is a term, generally used as an insult, for a young, usually white woman who posts trendy pictures of herself edited on the app VSCO (a picture sharing app).
A VSCO girl wears oversized t-shirts or sweatshirts with short shorts. Has Vans, Crocs, Briks, and wears a shell necklace. She always has a hydroflask. She can't leave home without a scrunchie. 
Katie had fun at the game and then she and some of her friends came back and watched a movie at our house. 

Harry Potter Escape Room

We did a Harry Potter Escape Room on Friday night.  It was really fun.  It was made by a lady named Cheryl Hanley in our stake.  She just put it together because she loves Harry Potter.  The object was to solve the clues in order to be able to open 6 different boxes in order to free a magical Harry Potter creature.  When we opened one box, there was another clue that would lead us to figure out how to open another box.  We were able to free the creature with only a little help from Cheryl.

Garret Teaches YM

Garret got to teach the lesson in Deacon's quorum on Sunday.  He chose to teach about Elder Stevenson's talk in the April 2019 conference titled "Your Priesthood Playbook".  He gave me his lesson and it was awesome! He was a little disappointed because by the time he got to give his lesson there were only 10 minutes left, but Kirt was there and said that he did a great job getting his main points taught.  Way to go Garret!

Garret's Fall Baseball Season

Garret is playing fall baseball.  His team is the Vipers again.  His coach is James Javier.  The boys on his team are Sam Javier, Lincoln Murray, Zander Isabel, They play 4 weeks of double headers in September and then the 1st week of October is a tournament. 
Garret played 1st base most of the season with a little bit of outfield.  He says that 1st base is his favorite.  He's really good at it because he has a really long reach. 
The first Saturday September 7th they played the . They won the first game 20-0 and the 2nd game 22-0. It wasn't very much fun because the other team was so much worse than them.
The 2nd Saturday they played the Thunder.  They lost the first game 14-3 and the 2nd game 10-4. Garret actually liked this game because there was some competition.  The other team really wasn't that much better, but Garret's team made a few big errors that let them score a bunch of runs a few times.
