Bighorn Sheep

We see bighorn sheep every time we travel on state highway 114, just east of Gunnison. I make sure we travel that way every time we are headed to Oklahoma! It's a narrow winding road, but totally worth it!

November Sledding

Maralee is so good at sledding, she can go backwards!

B-Ball

Savanna played an exciting game of basketball on Saturday. We were tied with Dolores 16-16 even after going into overtime twice! Those girls were working hard but they were destined to be tied that day.

Maralee's First 5K

We left at 6 a.m. yesterday for Grand Junction where Maralee ran in her first 5K. She has been in the fall program called Girls on the Run after school two days a week. This is a great program for pre-teens promoting a healthy lifestyle, self-awareness and self-respect.
The girls and coaches were warming up here. You can see that the Canyon View Park is in a pretty place.
Maralee is somewhere in this crowd at the beginning of the race.
Maralee actually missed running after school this week because of allergies and coughing. She still wasn't feeling 100% on Saturday, but she still pushed herself to finish the race.

Halloween Scenes

Here are several pictures taken over the last few days. This first jack-o-lantern was Savanna's carving and the second one was Garrett's.
Friday was the kids' Halloween parade. This is Maralee with her teacher that she had last year, Ms. Milord.
Maralee has always tried to win a cake at the Harvest Festival's cake walk, and this year she finally did!
