Taylor Goes to Prom Graduates High School and Seminary

Taylor and Joselin go to Prom May 14th. I talked him into shopping for a new outfit 4 hours before Prom. He is such a boy.

Taylor graduated from Seminary May 22 in our Stake Center. On May 24th he was gifted many dollars he desperately needed, a beautiful quilt grandma Carol made, a Lacrosse bear I tried to create, tickets to Lagoon, trafalga and Chevron for gas. We celebrated before the ceremony by going to Olive Garden so he could have mussels and soup. Grandma and Grandpa Rowley, Grandma and Grandpa Anderson, Aunt Joy and her new husband and of course all of our family was there to cheer him on and celebrate this great accomplishment. What a great week it has been for Taylor in the success department.

2011 Lacrosse Championship

Warriors Goal for the year make it to the Playoffs.They take West andNorthridge with big leads.Squeak by Lehi in the semi final . Warriors play regardless of the weather.

Prepare for the big showdown between Timpanogas and the Warriors. A rematch of last years playoff when they stole the game 7-6 in the final seconds. Decorated doors and big awards party get us geared up.
TTay has yertel with him inside the goal for every game this year. Often referee's stop to look at whats inside the goal and then shrug and laugh. Its his personal turtle mascott

Game Day Park City. The first sun of the season May 21??? We are painted in red war paint, waving flags and stomping on the bleachers as we chant defense..defense! Very Tough first quarter ends 4-1 Timp is all over us. The Half ends Timp still ahead at 6-3. It looks bleak. Taylor is a wreck. He called it the worst half he has played in years. His coach says you need a short memory Rowley forget about the last half and go play a new game.Then the magic happens. We tye up the game in the third quarter. Goalie Rowley and his mad defensive team keeps them edged out of the box as our offense continues to score. 4th quarter we score number 7 they score number 7 and then in a crazy last minute play Timp trys to score but Taylor stops the goal, and then he throws it as far down field as it can go. One man alone from our team is down there (Big Head) Jake Merrill catches the pass from 3/4 of a field away. Timp is running mad to catch him. He makes it to the goalie who sees him coming and steps out of th crease to stop him. Big head is nearly past the goal post and shoots it from behind his head over his shoulder and it sinks in the pocket. Score 8-7!! 9 seconds left turnover and Taylor again throws the ball as far down field as far as he can.... time up. Warriors in a crazy upset take the game. I miss the dog pile as the team runs for the goal tackling Taylor in wild celebration. I cant see with my glasses off covered in tears. What a great day!!!! And what is my son doing as they line up for the presentation of the trophy? Comforting Wilkie his friend in lacrosse and the opposing goalie.

Little country towns can have imprompto parades and so they did. 3 fire and 3 rescue trucks and 2 ambulance all blareing their sirens.
