So here are the pictures that I promised (a little late)
Here is Kayli Mae taking a bath
She's just like her mom, she really, really loves the water.

This is Kayli in her new high chair that Grandma and Grandpa have at their house. We almost lost her in that chair. She looks so small but she is growing so quickly.

Here is a picture of Aunt Kim giving her a taste of pickle.
We thought it was so cute that she didn't like the taste at all.
Well....look down at the next picture

She's eating it all by herself. She LOVES them.



Now the next set of pictures is a great bunch.
We (the family) had another first.
Tonight we went to our first basketball game in Jerome since Will has been gone.
Here is Angel and Kayli watching something funny. Although Angel's face is funny enough there, I don't know what she was watching.
Kayli was so funny, she just kept yelling at the top of her voice. Everyone was saying that she was yelling at the refs, but Uncle Will would never, ever allow that, so I think she was just showing support.

Below:
This was the reason the family went to the game tonight. The school put up a permanent memorial board right underneath the score board in Will's honor.
They also said a little something about Will and the memorial scholarship that will be in his name. At our meeting last week we decided that we will offer a$500 scholarship to a boy and girl. So they announced that. The crowd was very loud. How great that was.


Here are we standing underneath the sign. You all need to go and see this. Pretty impressive, huh?
(and notice-we won the game too)
Most of you know us and know how hard it was going into that gym. That was Will's life, passion, and joy. We all decided that it was harder than we thought but we made it through and we saw so many of the kids that Will coached, many parents that we knew, and lots and lots of friends surrounding us ONCE AGAIN. We will go again. The school's staff is amazing and made all this possible. What a great gift to Will's memory.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
GOD BLESS EVERYONE THAT MADE THIS POSSIBLE.

How awesome... gives me chills! He was an incredible coach and person! I miss him SO much and cannot wait to see another game in Jerome gym.
As you know Terri, Jesalyn started basketball this year. What a blessing it has been to sit back and just watch her "love the game"! I really didn't see it coming...
His spirit surrounds us everywhere we go!
I think Will must have something to do with her growing too because she has shot straight up in the last few months. lol More videos to come on my facebook!
SO CUTE!
Love the pics of the fam and little Kayli!
What a doll...
