The newest member of the family.... Leighton Rigby Minnich! She was born on Labor Day cuz who doesn't deliver on labory day? She looks a smidge like her older brother Owen and is damn cute. Meredith is a great helper and very good at it too. During our visit we got to watch "O-Man" football game and he is a playa! Pretty intense for his age. It was fun. The family is doing quite well and we can't wait to go back to see her! Shutterfly Shared Picture Detail

August 24, 2009 - the last first day for my little Scooter! boo hoo! he's so happy he was giddy. Kyle, though he would never admit it, was excited too! normally he would never wear a pink tie dye shirt but he was a CMT rep. They were both a little dissapointed that the fog wasn't a little worse? So we're off! It's non-stop running from now until June. Goodluck everyone!
The boys won the AYBT National Championship tourney on July 21 in Ft Wayne at the Spiece center. They finished 17-8 for the season. We went 2-2 into the tournament draw so ended up in the lower division which worked in our favor apparently. After getting beat by Jay Co and Findlay (two teams we had previously beaten) we won the rest of our games. We beat a team from Michigan that were very colorful and I don't just mean their skin tone. Our boys heard some words they've never heard before. Most of our kids had never heard the word "cracker" used in that content. There was a little rumble between the fans after a so-called jump ball with 1.8 seconds was called when Kyle got picked up and thrown to the ground. but "It's just basketball" and they are "Just kids". We were almost flawless in the final game and it was fun to watch. (from our side of the stands) the final score was a little lopsided but we've been on the other end more than our fair share. So CONGRATULATIONS boys! We are So Damn proud of you! You always, always give it 100% and play to the end. You deserve it. See you at Cedar Point.
Scoot was asked by our neighbors to watch their pigs for a few short days while they were camping. Seems simple enough. Solo the dog jumped into the pen so Scoot opened the gate to let him out and didn't seem to get it completely shut. The next morning we get a call that 6 of the 9 were roaming the neighborhood. A search party was sent out on 4 wheelers and a couple hours later they found them. They had almost made it to the dairy? go figure? Pigs are stupid BUT here they are going home. Sorry Dani, Tanner and Tyler! It really wasn't a conspiracy.
. . . it was my lucky night. Not only was Devon Golden in town to run track for Wapak but her good friend Melon Eickholt came to watch! The quest for famous people pictures is "my definition of famous"and I consider these two to be very famous in the high school sports world. These two are the most competitive high school girls basketball players that I have seen in a long time. I admire both of them for their accomplishments this year. They were very fun to watch this year. I wish you guys great success in college.
