Soccer in the POURING RAIN

Mallory and Hayley played in the pouring rain in Bountiful today!!! Soccer games are only canceled if there is lighting!! They didn’t have any subs but the played exceptionally well. They ended up winning 8-0 (Mallory scored twice). They were sopping wet and cold to the bone but they didn’t give up!

Hayley and Anna

Even though Mallory and Hayley were frozen, the wanted to stop and get ice cream on the way home. Our new thing is to stop at Smith's (every once in awhile) and everyone picks out their own carton of ice cream-- same price as a small shake and you can enjoy it for a day or two (Mallory eats here in a day or two but some of us make it last a whole week)!

Mallory's Piano Recital

Mallory’s piano recital was today. She played “Holiday in Paris” by William L. Gillock and “Play it in Peoria”  by Melody Bober (a duet with her teacher, Becky Hollist--Sister Holllist). She did a beautiful job! 

Mallory was really nervous because she has been with her new teacher since February and wasn't sure what to expect from the recital. I loved how it was small and intimate (her teacher does three different times and only a 8-10 students at each recital). Mallory was lucky to have her Great Grandma Wood attend plus her dad, Hayley, Brittney and I there.

Recital Group
Back L-R: Emma, Jane, Sister Hollist
Front L-R: Hayden, Isaac, Jeffrey, Hyrum, Addie and Mallory

Becky Hollist and Mallory

All of Sister Hollist's students, design a recital cover. Here is Mallory's cover (she traced the piano) plus the recital program. 

I wish I would have take a picture of the back of heads of the performers on the front row in the Recital Hall at the Piano Gallery. Mallory, Addie and Emma all sat together in a row, and all three had their hair done almost the exact same way (half up in a bun with hair still over their ears-- just a little something I noticed).

Great Job Mallory!

Lunch with the Mayor

Hayley was able to go to "Lunch with the Mayor" today for school. She was so excited! She rode from the school to the city building in a unmarked police car and back to school in an ambulance. Hayley can now say she has been in a police car and an ambulance (I've been in both too but for different reasons ;))! 
Congratulations Hayley!
