Isaac Scores

Isaac is enjoying his first year of soccer.  He is on the Lincoln School team 1.  His team is made up of 5-7 year old kids, and while he is still 5 he is the biggest kid on the team. As parents, we are learning we may need to carry a birth certificate to let parents know he really is in the right age division.

He is having a great time and we are enjoying watching him.  He is learning to play hard and fair and even cheat a little (unknowingly).  In one of these short video clips he throws it into himself, we are pretty sure that is illegal.

Thanks to Grandpa Dorman, we have a pretty good stable of horses, plus a great trailer for getting out and about.  We recently took excursions to Southeast Idaho's sand dunes, and Harriman State Park.  We have been to the dunes several times, but this was our first time as a family to Harriman. We went on just one of the many loops and will return soon to enjoy the many rides that go along the river, past mountain lakes, and up over high mountain ridges.

We enjoyed a really beautiful Saturday hiking in the mountains near Kilgore, Idaho.  The drive was gorgeous and the meadows, ranchlands, and mountains where especially green because of our wet spring.  The hike to Aldous Lake was just 1.3 miles, with an additional climb of 1 mile to Hancock Lake. Emrie and Isaac where great hikers and Isaac caught a dozen frogs, and saw one very large one that he said had candy growing on him.  Jenna brought along her friend Alssya, and Matthew was joined by his father-in-law Lance, his brother-in-law Spencer, and their friend Cassy.
