Playing Catch Up with blogging news

I thought I would use a few posts to play catch up with what has been going on in our lives. So ...

My dad (Lawrence), who lives in Amarillo, Texas and Janet Henderson, who lives in Juneau, Alaska helped us move to Tulia. They were a great help driving and a really big help with our four kids!

We stayed in a Hotel that had a swimming pool with two slides. The kids really had a ball zipping down the slide! That kept us pretty busy as well.

Alexis and Makayla played soccer this year ... for the first time! I think they are MVP material!

They played on a team coached by Cody and Melissa Culwell. They whipped into shape in no time at all!

In the final tournament, the team placed second! We are proud of them!

That is probably way too much blogging ... be patient ... I am a beginner!

Hi Bairds, this is the Wiists, if you don't like long blogs, don't bother looking at ours. . . I'm a writer. But I'm also a photographer, so there are lots of photos, if you just want to skip the reading part of the whole thing. Glad you have a blog, will be fun to see your family, last time we saw you, there were only 2 kiddos and one in the tum! Now there are FOUR!!!! wii3mcfamily.blogspot.com (since clicking on my name/picture will take you to my photography site which is not linked to my personal site. . . .oops!

Hey Brooke, things are going great here! It is nice to be around family again.

Wiist family thanks for stopping by. I checked out your blog and I can relate to Alani out-growing her shirt. Sad thing is she is supposed to and I shouldn't!

Hey, I was reading trey's blog and saw that you and your family are blogging. Welcome!!! Seeing your name brought back a lot of funny memories....like you pouting that your youth group forgot your birthday and you went to your mom's all the while we were planning your surprise party!! Thank you for being an inspiration to me!

Bruce and Amanda Baird said...

I can not get over how tan Amanda looks in the background of Lexi's photo. (Yes, we see you there, Amanda. :)
Glad you guys are doing well.
Carly keeps asking, "Who moved into Hunter's house?" And when I tell her, "Bill, Amanda, and baby Marie" she says, "Hunter's mom and this lady have the same name!" It just cracks me up.
