Here I am

Well, I did it again.  I really thought I was going to get back at it and start posting again, but you can see that it has been months, close to a year, since I last posted.  I am not going to try to do a Christmas letter style catch up like last time, but will instead just say, here I am.  All is well.  The Mechams are still plugging along, older, wiser and happy as always.
Hopefully I will make time for some blogging this year, but I can't promise anything.  :)

And so it goes

I am pretty certain I have been wishing for this day for years.  Yelling down the hall after two little boys skating in freshly washed sheets,  "Grow Up!".  The Numberless times I have said "Use your brian' or 'think a bout it for just one minute'...  Yup, he is actually doing that lately.  On his own.
Less than 2 weeks and he is off to the new home for him. Helaman Halls at BYU.  Two weeks and he will be there and I will be here.  Big changes for our family.  Big Time.  I have grown so accustumed to him being here afer shool.  So used to his Tuesday/ Friday games.  I am ready to watch our football show by 8:15 every week.  All the traditions will change. WE are getting everything ready, but I don't know how to feel ready for him being away.OH don't you ever grow up!

And he is accepted!
Joey is off to Provo.
We are very happy!

We will be seeing a lot more of this
 over the next year!
Is it possible for our family to watch more lacrosse?

This year I am the advisor to new lacrosse team at my middle school.  The boys (all but one)are all new to the sport.  Our team is bar far the youngest group in our division.  Of our 20 boys we have three  8th graders, three 7th graders and 14  little 6th graders.  Last night they had their first scrimmage ever.  It was a 'double header'.  We ended up winning both matches.  The little guys actually carried our goalie off the field on their shoulders.  Precious!

I love days off

It is going to get up to just about 75 degrees here in Vegas today.  I know, I know.  I love the cold weather.  I do.  Right up until January 1.  After January 1st, I am ready for days like these.  Not to mention it is MLK day and here in CCSD that means NO SCHOOL!  This morning found me at the gym bright and early, home to do some house cleaning and now just blogging about how lucky I am.
Finals this week for all my kiddos.  We are half way through another school year. Wow.

San Diego

Joey had his last all star tournament last weekend in San Diego.  Doug Millie and I went down to watch.  His team had high hopes of being the first Vegas team to ever win the Elite A division of this annual event.  Coaches and players alike thought this was our year.  Unfortunately a loss in the first round kept the team from the goal.  All in all it was a good weekend.  Another addition to my book of 'lasts'.  This is the last all star team event Joey will participate in during high school.  Doug hates my 'lasts' but I am fond of it.  It makes me recall all the moments that I otherwise might just let pass.  Here are a few photos.

On a completely different note, last Sunday night and Monday morning Vegas was blanketed in the white stuff!  Nope, I am not kidding.  Snow in Vegas!  A few more inches and we may have seen a snow day.  Which I might add would have been the perfect end to a wonderful winter break.  I love snow !
