Joey’s Summer of Lacrosse

It was a lot of fun this year to watch the guys grow together. The upperclassmen were great leaders for Joey and the other upcoming 7th graders and they never gave up on the younger guys. Nolan who played as our goalie was terrific all year and Jackson and the other stars of the team had a great tenacity about them. The coaching staff was great. It was a lot of fun to watch the high school coaches work with the boys through the state tournament.

Joey grew this year as a Lacrosse player. He scored his first goal and a second soon after thanks to great passes from his teammates. I was very happy to be there to see and capture both goals 🙂

The end result of the season was claiming 4th place in state. They should all be very proud. Thanks for letting me ‘shoot’ your games!

Glacier & Theodore Roosevelt National Parks – 2018

This summer we went on another national park adventure with the Lenzen family. We played games, had camp fires, smores, hiked (and sweated), swam, rafted, kayaked, canoed, enjoyed camping food, ice cream, and each other’s company.

Our trip started with a stop west of Fargo, a night in western Montana, and finally arriving in Glacier National Park which was our home for about 8 days. We decided to leave Glacier early to break up the trip and spend a day in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, camping in Medora.
