We missed most of his competition because we were in Sacrament Meeting. This photo was something Kyle's fiance got from this mornings competitions. We barely got to see him in his last Clean and Jerk lift by the time we finally got logged into the Team USA website. We are so proud of our son for chasing his dreams. Even if he NEVER makes it to an Olympic podium or if he decided to quit tomorrow, we are VERY PROUD of him! He is pretty awesome! We admire his determination to pursue his goals. Go Kyle! He is an awesome young man!
We have 4 wonderful children. Danielle may NEVER stop going to school. Even after she receives her PhD. I think she just loves the whole idea of education. I tease her. She says she is going to keep going to school until she gets her Masters. I keep telling her, why quit there. Just go all the way and get the PhD. Why not? She get so mad at me when I say that. :) Mom's gotta have a little fun, right?
Curtis has a busy week this week. He sees the dentist Tuesday night. Look out! This is just to get the ball rolling so he can get into the oral surgeon. He needs his wisdom teeth removed. So does Danielle. Shoot! We could all use a little visit to the dentist. Some of us just for a cleaning and a check up. Others for more fun stuff like wisdom teeth and root canals. EEK!
Next it will be off to the regular doctor for his physical and shots! shots! shots! (don't tell Curtis. He doesn't know much about the whole shot thing yet.) I have to say, I have never seen a young man more excited to go on a mission. It's funny. Curtis was always my kiddo that was trying to get outside and have the adventure. Life has always been one big adventure for Curtis. Now he is preparing for a great big adventure. :) This will be great! I can't wait for his adventure to begin. His mission. He can hardly stand the wait.
It's late and 4:30 a.m. comes early. Time for me to get some sleep. Have a great week.
