Cassia's Last Experience with Soccer

Cassia played her last soccer game a week ago Saturday. We asked her if she wanted to play next year and she said she would. We then told her she would be on the big field (not official size, but much, much bigger) and that is when she said she was done. She'll probably change her mind, so we'll see what she says next year. Here are some pictures of her during a game a bit ago.




Hunter's Football

Hunter has just started a flag football league. I've only been to one game (and have issues with how the coaches run it), but he loves it. They have tried to pass maybe one time and it went straight up in the air and was intercepted. It's quite funny. So they run every play and they can barely get anywhere because no one can really block. I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to teach the game at this age. As long as he has fun, that's really all that matters. Here is Hunter running in an extra point (I guess it would be a two-point conversion, but that's not what they call it):






I love this last one because as he is celebrating, the other team is still trying to pull his flag.

Diving

So I finally went diving. I don't know why I put it off so long, it being my last week and all. I think it was because no one would ever go with me and I would rather do that with someone else. But Joy convinced me that I had to go and I am glad she did. Here are some pictures that I found the most interesting. After this I will also post a video.

This thing is called a hammerhead slug. It was about the size of my pinky nail. I had to get really close to see it and it didn't turn out well on the picture, but the things were absolutely amazing.


There is a fish here (a clown fish) that was biting us if we got too close to its home. It was incredible how small it was, but it would take on humans. They really don't want you close to their little spot.


A cool-looking star fish. After I took the picture, I kicked to swim and the force of the kick turned the star fish upsidedown. It must have been pretty light.


You really have to click on this picture to see why I posted it. The flash went off, which I didn't want to happen, but the end result was amazing.


These are really hard to see, but they are about 4-feet long and really skinny. They would travel in packs of 6 to 8. Really neat fish.

Redick is 2!



I can't believe my baby turned 2 this week! I know what everyone is thinking, "time for another" Well forget about it. I feel bad Kirk missed it but we had a great time without him :) We had a party at my parents house with all the family and Parrys. I hope to have pictures of the party soon. First I have to finish the roll of film. I forget how nice the digital age was. I love how excited he gets over every little thing, oohing and awing at each present.

We went to the cabin for Labor Day, so I thought I would post some pics:

Snorkeling

I went snorkeling yesterday (completely burned my back) and snapped these photos:



More from the Philippines

Here are some more pictures of the Philippines. It is such an awesome place and the people are so nice. I walked into a market today, much against the advice of the other eBay employees, and absolutely loved it. Everyone all stared at me as I walked down the middle, mostly because I am about a foot taller than most of them and about 100 pounds heavier. There is something to be said about a rice diet, I'll tell you that much.

 



Downtown Cebu:

 

 



These are called Jeepnees (Jeep-knees) and it's their version of a transit system. All the Jeepnees are privately owned and there are probably 50,000 of them in the city. Better system than Salt Lake though.
