A Day of Competitions

We didn't get any pictures (turn off your phones rules at one event and no camera rules at another) but Dallin and Rachel were involved in two competitions yesterday.

Rachel had a dance competition. She was sick the day before but thankfully she got better just in time. Her team, the Starlettes, performed Under the Boardwalk and Supermodel at the Spotlight Dance Competition at Cashman field. Her team won the Rubies Award for both dances. Under the Boardwalk was also the category winner, a special spotlight award winner, and made the top ten.

Dallin was part of a varsity Science Bowl team for Centennial High School which attended the Regional Science Bowl at UNLV and PBS Studios competing against 32 High Schools from Southern Nevada and other locations. His team did great and came in 3rd place overall! It was interesting seeing the kids challenge and appeal rulings during the contest. Some of them would make great lawyers if they don't continue to pursue science.

Sadie's 2011

Dallin had a great time at Sadie's this year. This is his date Amy and their matching shoes. His friend Greg and he, both Sophomores, were asked by two Junior girls. The four of them took pictures by the Marriott Resort at Summerlin, ate dinner in the park, got to see Blue Man Group, stopped by the dance briefly, and went out for Yoghurt.

No Training Wheels

Ethan learned to ride without training wheels thanks to some help from his friend Calin. He has been wanting to do this for a long time now and insisted that his training wheels come off a long time ago. So, we're glad he was able to learn quickly and without his elderly parents having to try to run along beside him for too long.
