Callahan Blackham ... A Basketball Boy's Blog


0728 We got waverunners a while ago and I haven’t mentioned it on here. They are the coolest things ever. I have gotten up to 63 mph. Your eyes hurt because the wind makes your eyes water. Mason has been going to Gene Fullmer now. Our summer season ended and we went 8-0. I went to dad’s work once and got some money. We also put a projector up so we have a bigger screen playing the Xbox. That is what happened in the last couple weeks.
 

0707 Youth conference was an amazing experience. After doing all the temple work we went tubing at Deer Creek. It was so fun. Corbin Crane was going crazy on his boat so Matt, Travis and me were hurting for a while after the tubing because he was going crazy. Alan Adams was pretty crazy too. I have been going to Gene Fullmer more often now. In the Gene Fullmer league my team has been kicking butt. So it has been fun for the last little while.

06-Something. Chicken butt! We went waverunning. It was fun. In the Grizzly Camp I won a shooting tournament. We also played in a basketball camp just to play against other teams. We lost in the first game of the tournament, the other team lost in the 3rd game in the tournament but I played with them a little bit. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

0609 School is out. We lost to South Valley and are out of the tournament. I got a 90-day pass to Gene Fullmer. Nothing much to write about, that is all that happened. In the 2 games that I played a lot of minutes I actually scored, which has taken a lot less time than the last time I broke my foot. Now I’m going to Gene Fullmer to day. Dad also bought some waverunners that I am going to miss today because of practice.

0602 I played in a basketball game, and played quite a bit. I started and even made the first basket, a THREE. After not playing for a long time I just wanted to stay in the game. That was all the points I had in the game, but we won in overtime so we are going to the next elimination round. We will play the number 1 seed, South Valley Hoops. We have beat them twice and tied once. The tie was stupid, it happened only because it was late at night. In church me and Landon kept messing around, so we might be in trouble with Dad.

0528 Not much happened this week. I got a fitbit. A fitbit is something you clip to your clothes and it records what you did that day. That day earlier we went to Virg’s and had breakfast. Then on the way home we stopped by PetCo and looked at animals. Last week we went to the Cheesecake Factory. It was so good! The cheesecake was amazing, we had some frozen from the factory after it thawed out, but this was much better.

0520 I finished all my CRT’s in every class. What was weird though, that in the math CRT’s it wasn’t anything we learned this year. So now she is making us take a final on what we learned this year. I got 90% on Language Arts and Science, but in math I got 95%. So I am pretty happy with my CRT’s this year. My dad also went to NYC and he got a 5lb Hersey’s bar, four ½ lb Reese’s peanut butter cups. That same week he ordered the 5lb gummy bear and a 2.7lb gummy worm. Then on Mother’s Day we got her flowers and a couple little crafts. I got her “frustration free” wake ups for the rest of the school year. That was a mistake because I am not happy in the mornings, it is a challenge to wake up with grabbing the blanket and stay in bed. Oh well. We also got a new phone by the pantry which isn’t that special. 

0505 We finished our CRT’s in Language Arts on Thursday. So again this week isn’t exciting. I guess a little. I can run now but not in games. We also played handball outside which was really fun because we haven’t played it in a while. Then after we did that Jacob, Travis and I went to go see Iron Man 3 at Cinemark. It was really awesome. It had to be the funniest Iron Man out of the three. Now on Sunday, Dad has come back from New York and has a 5 pound Hershey’s bar, 4 half-pound Reese’s peanut butter cups, and the 5 pound gummy bear and big gummy bear came from Vat19. So we are going to have very big dessert choices when we got to Clay’s for Maga’s birthday dinner. Before this we have started to through a ball around for as long as possible but we have failed pretty terrible. We got the idea from Friends. They did it for 4 hours.   

0421 I’m not sure what to write about. Not much happened this week. Went to school the whole week, but now when we come home it is bad because the younger boys are off track. The Avalanche got hit in the Herriman High School parking lot. Landon wasn’t really happy about it. It was damaged very bad, but the car that hit his was worse!

0414 A while ago Keaton got into Stars Wars. Now a couple weeks later into that obsession we searched for our plastic “lightsabers.” We have been having fights in the backyard. It has been really fun but, a couple people have got hurt. Mainly Colton and Cooper are getting hurt because they aren’t as strong as the older boys.

0407 We had steak today. It was very good. So was the mashed potatoes. Steak dinner is always good. I go back to school tomorrow after the weekend which sucks. We only have like eight weeks of school left which doesn’t sound like a lot but it is so slow at school. 2K13 is my favorite game ever. That is all I do anymore because my foot is still broken.

0331 Today is Easter and it isn’t the best Easter ever. All the “kids” are sick. Mom and Dad are fine. But all the boys are sick. We heard Clay and Courtney’s kids are sick the Crane’s are sick and Grandpa is sick. So yeah it is a pretty sick and nasty Easter. Kevin Ware on Louisville snapped his leg in the game against Duke which was bad. The team really started trashing Duke after that happened which was really cool to me. He had to have surgery. I will never watch that video because it would scare the crap out of me. 

0324 It has been a while since I have wrote in my journal. A lot has happened. My foot healed, then 2 weeks later I broke my other foot. We went to Disneyland before the first one healed. I had a New Year’s Eve party with my friends and brother- Travis, Jacob and Keaton. This foot is healing at about the same speed as the last one. It isn’t a good experience for a basketball player to have. Writing in my Journal is so boring! I got straight A’s through 1st-3rd quarters in school.

1104 We got back from the doctor and it was healing but it wasn’t all the way healed. My next appointment is in a month which means I missed the whole Fall Season. And that really sucks because I really wanted to play with Coach Heagren as much as possible. Now I can’t be on the 9th grade either. One of the better 9th grades torn or pulled some muscles in his wrist which sucks because the 9th grade tryouts are this week. So I guess it is better to get injured in 8th grade then 9th grade. And 7th grade because the coaches wouldn’t know me if I didn’t go to open gym or basketball camps.

1029 I think my foot is healing. I don’t know why but I believe it is. We have been heating it using vitamin D and calcium. I have been attending practices and games. Nitrous is 2-1 and CH8A is 2-2. We faced the two best teams in our double header. Then we have been destroying the 2 other teams. We could probably win Bengals and compete with Metro. It just makes me so mad that I can’t play. It is driving me insane.

1014 In the past month which I haven’t written in my journal we got a trampoline which was fun until I fractured my foot on 4 days after we got it. Fall season was about to start and I didn’t play in 5 weeks now I might not be able to play the rest of the season. I have been going to practices to learn the defenses and offenses. It’s not that fun but I need to learn and know the plays when I come back in the winter season. My coaches want it fully healed so if it is fine a week or two before the season ends they might not let me play because it is only a couple games. 


0902 So we had a birthday party for Keaton and Cooper. It was really fun. The party ended at 4. My mom said I can have friends over till 6 so we got our moneys worth. We had lots of babies(balloons). Then there was baby killers. Ridley, Tony, Mark and Easton. Porter and Ben did want to leave but I wanted them to just because I was so tired. I was playing in the water for like 5 hours so I was tired. That was my Saturday.

0819 Today we went to church like normal then went to Grandma’s and Grandpa’s house. We celebrated birthdays there too. There was too much sugar there. I started to feel sick.

0818 Today we went to Maga’s house today to swim and celebrate birthdays. We brought sponges in the pool and they were fun. I kept attacking Dad. We wanted cake forever then we had it like 4 hours after the pool.

0817 I went to Gene Fullmer for 4 hours today. 3 hours basketball 1 hour swimming. It was just me and Ben. Of course Alex was there to annoy us. When I got home we played Dodge Sponge. The Landon made Otis and Mom made homemade ice cream.

0816 Gene Fullmer again. Mason was there because his mom dropped him off. Rowland came and Ben and Porter and Stephen. We did 3 v 3. It was Ben, Porter and me against Rowland, Mason and Stephen. You had to win 2 seven-game series. They won the first one 4-3. Then we won 4-2 then we won again 4-1.

0815 Today we went to Gene Fullmer again. Mason couldn’t come today because “he had to mow his lawn.” Then Ben and Porter and Stephen came too. We did bets from half-court like we do. Alex brought chocolate fudge brownies. Stephen brought 6 sodas. And Ben brought pistachios.

0814 Today we went to Gene Fullmer like a regular day. Mason cam over early and Colton and Mason played me in the little hoop again. Colton is a hacker! Ben and Porter and Stephen came of course. So that was my day.

0813 I didn’t go to Gene Fullmer today but I did go to the school to find my classes and locker with Stephen. My locker ended up being right next to Stephen’s … on the bottom! Then I went to Stephen’s to hangout. We listened to music and danced with his little sister. 

0812 We missed Sacrament meeting today because the gold-medal game for Team USA against Spain was on. USA won. If they lost I would’ve cried. J Through the whole time in church I was looking forward to dinner. My dad was making steak and mashed potatoes. My mom made yummy pull-apart rolls. It was a great dinner.

0811 Today I went to Brendan’s birthday party at Kearn’s. The whole park was packed. It was really fun. I mainly was around Porter, Parker and Stephen. I found an indoor pool that I never knew about before. A lot of people didn’t know about it so we spent most of the time in there. The indoor pool we were in had a diving board so we did lots of contests.

0810 Today we didn’t go to Gene Fullmer I went to the soccer fields with Travis and my soccer friend Jared not Puma. It was fun. Soccer is more fun if you don’t play in a league if you just play with your friends. It started to rain so we left. Travis and I walked so it was annoying running with that wind and rain.

0809 Today we went to Gene Fullmer again. This time Mason couldn’t come because of Lagoon. I thought Luis was coming but he didn’t. So Siani showed up later. Then we played 2 vs. 2. Siani and me against Ben and Porter. Alex kept being annoying like always. Practice sucked again because I had to run all the plays again.

0808 Today we went to Gene Fullmer. It was Mason, Ben, Porter and me. Alex was there … of course. He is so annoying. We were doing bets on stuff. It is so fun. Then we went to practice which was boring. Mason tricked Klint to make me do all the plays for the one.

0807 Today we went to Grandma’s to swim. We were there for a while. My eyes hurt after because of the clourine. Then we went to KFC and Arby’s. We got the amazing Orange Cream Shake at Arby’s and cheese curds at KFC with drumsticks.

0806 Today we went to Gene Fullmer. It was Rowland, Mason and me and Ben. Mason said I challenged them. We had to win two seven-game series. They won the first one 4-1. Then we won 4-2. Then we won the next one 4-2. So we won them and I didn’t even challenge them. Then we did this bet thing, where whoever made it from half-court first would get a prize.

0805 So there was the best Sacrament meeting ever today! There was a billion of testimonies because of Trek, and Scout Camp. It went probably 40 minutes over. Then I had fast offerings. I got the route by my house. That route is really easy and fast.

0804 I had a basketball game today. We lost by like 15 because I was off  because I didn’t play basketball for a week. Jared wasn’t there and Porter wasn’t there either. So we were short on big men. Then we went to Mountain Mike’s later that day and got shaved ice. 



0803 (Friday) The hike up seemed like it took 2 hours. We had to get up at 5:30 in the morning. The hike down took like 10 minutes. We made a big breakfast today. It was so good. Then I had Envirn. Science again. It was easy … again. Then we went lunch. We had a 28 inch pizza  and amazing Raspberry shakes. We couldn’t get into the caves for an hour and a half so we didn’t go. Then Dad, Travis and I went home because I had a game on Saturday. We got home at 1 in the morning.

0802 (Thursday) We had Small Boat Sailing today. It was really easy. We got done an hour and a half early. Then we had Archery which was fun because I rocked! You had to get 160 points with 30 arrows. I got 204 points. You shot 5 arrows at a time and you can get a high score of 50 points at the most. I got 45 points in one round. Then we hiked up a mile up the mountain and had to sleep up there for Wilderness Survival.

0801 (Wednesday) My first class on Environmental Science was today. My teacher is awesome so it was fun and easy. My class was with Sam. The teacher plays basketball for Bingham High School. He was a 9th grader and played 10th grade and 11th grade basketball. Then we had Wilderness Survival later. That class was boringer than En.Science. Then Travis and I went to get some jelly and bread at the Dining Hall.

0731 (Tuesday) I had the swimming Merit Badge this morning. The first hour we talked about First Aid. Then we had to jump in the water with long pants on and make floatation devices with the pants and shirt. It was really hard but Kaid and I finished before everybody else. Then Small Boat Sailing was boring because we talked about First Aid and Knots. It was really windy so we went in the water. The waves were huge! It was so fun.

0730 (Monday) Went to Bear Lake today. My iPod got some use on the car ride there. I was planning on falling asleep but it was so loud that I couldn’t sleep. We had to go do our cold water checks right when we got there. Then I had Archery. It was boring today. We had to talk about the bow and the string and scoring our points. We finished early so we got to leave early.

0729 (Sunday) Today we went to church like a normal day. When we got home we had brunch. The bacon was amazing that day that Mom made another batch. Mom also made Homemade Ice Cream and Oreos.

0728 (Saturday) Keaton’s game was against a bunch of girls. They won easily. My game was an easy win, too. We went to Sam’s Club after my game. We got 2 Icees. My mom also got a yummy fruit mix. 


0727 )Friday) Today we went to Jump N’ Bounce with the DiFran family. When we played tag we only tagged Bailey. It was pretty funny. We didn’t bring the football either. Keaton and Tony’s friend Joey came too. Then mom gave me a dollar. I had to work it off by cleaning off the table. That was all that happened.

0726 (Thursday) I got my physical today. I went to the doctor before I went to Gene Fullmer. Or Jacob would say, “Did you get your cough, cough?” Because they make you cough while they check your private spot. Then when I went to Gene Fullmer Porter was there. Stephen and Ben showed up at 6ish. Cole and some of his friends showed up. I played Cole in 1-on-1. I won 21-19. I did some drills with Cole and then we had practice.

0725 Today I went to Gene Fullmer with Porter and Stephen. We played like we usually do. Then I did some drills with Stephen. Then Porter and Stephen went swimming while I played. Alex didn’t annoy me while I was alone thankfully. We also tricked him into saying that are names are Trevor(ME), Wyatt (STEPHEN), and Micheal(PORTER).

0724 Today was Pioneer Day. Then Dad paid me to go to a movie because Landon, Keaton and I didn’t want to go. It was funny. I also got a Slurpee. Then later we shot off fireworks and had ice cream and gingersnaps.

0723 Today I went to the gym with Mason, Porter, Stephen and Ben. It was awesome. It was a normal Gene Fullmer Monday. Alex was there too. He is one of the most annoying kids ever. Then when I got home we played Handball at Lavallee’s. Travis couldn’t play because his ankle got sprained.


0722 Today we went to church like a normal Sunday. Then Mom made Oreos, Homemade Ice Cream, Waffles, I made Pancakes, and cheesy bread. We had a lot of goodies. It was Mom and Dad’s anniversary. They have been married for 20 years now!

0721 Today my Rec. game was easy. Then Ben took me to the Superleague game (because Mom and Dad were gone on an anniversary date.) It was an elimination game. We were playing Swoosh who was somehow in 7th place. We lost by 7 points. I sucked. I couldn’t make crap. So we got an early elimination. Stephen only got 2-3 minutes of playing time. His dad got really mad and talked to Klint. I don’t think Stephen is playing with Klint again.

0720 Today was a boring day. We did nothing … well pretty much nothing. Marc came over to play with the little boys. Mom and Dad went to see "The Dark Knight Rises" and left me babysitting brothers. Parker, Bailey and me got some “piercings.” We use the little balls for the Magnicube. And that was my day.

0719 Today I went to Gene Fullmer. Porter was there and Stephen was there. My old basketball friend Siani was there. He is a year younger but he is really good. Ben came at 6:40. He hurt his knee going into the bath tub. He is so clumsy. Practice was easy then Mom picked me up. She went to the store to get me some yummy food. Then we went to Wendy’s because I was in the mood. 

0718 Today it was Stephen, Porter, Ben and me. We played till practice again. Time flew by again. 3 hours doesn’t seem like a lot now. Alex was there and was really annoying … again. Then there was practice. And that was my day.

0717 They have a basketball camp at Gene Fullmer on Tuesday-Thursday this week till 1 o’clock. So Ben and I were they only ones who were there. We played till practice. Time just flew by. Then at practice it was fun. Even though we did plays it was fun. Mason and I made fun of each other again.

0716 I went to Gene Fullmer today with Brandon and Sam. Then Ben and Porter came also. This one kid who thinks he knows us because we played him in basketball and has seen us around followed us around. He is pretty annoying. Sam was pretty annoying, too.

0715 Dad had to go to work while we went to church. Church today helped me get back into a regular scripture reading. I either read before or after I watch Friends on nick @ nite. Aunt Live came and gave us haircuts. Aiden came, too. Aiden is cool but he can be annoying.

0714 My Rec. game we played a Taylorsville team and won by 22. It was close until the 4th quarter. This one guy had a beard! Then Keaton played Brian’s younger team. They lost but they cam close. Then my Superleague game we lost by 2. I did get a steal with 2 seconds left in the 3rd and made a half-court buzzer.

0713 We went to Jump N’ Bounce with Jacob and Bailey and Travis. Landon came too. These little girls kept chasing us and putting us in “jail.” That was really fun. When we got home we played Handball.

0712We went to Gene Fullmer before practice today. I had a sore throat so I was debating if I should go or not.  Ben, Porter and I were there so we played 21 a lot. Then at 5:45 Stephen showed up and we played two on two. Brendan came and wanted to play. Then Stephen and Brendan got on my team which sucked. Brendan kept missing layups and Stephen wanted to take the ball up. At practice we scrimmaged Steve. That was fun. Then Stephen had to come to our house because his parents were at the hospital. We watched the USA game. They won by 50. So a good day.

0711 Today, went to Gene Fullmer with Mason, Ben, and Porter. We were gonna play 2 on 2’s but then Stephen showed up. Then this kid who follows my friends and I around showed up and wanted to play. So we had 3 on 3. We played full-court with these kids and kicked trash. Today was 7-11 day. We were gonna get free slurpees but they ran out of cups. Then for scouts it was Triple D. In dodge ball I hit 3 half-court shots to bring my team back in.

0710 I went bowling today with Brandon, Bryson, Dallin, Payton, Tanner, Logan, Casey. It was way fun. I got the high score, 125. Then our second game we just played around. I threw it in between my legs and got a strike. Then we would spin ourselves for a couple turns then throw it. Then we went to Brandon’s for popsicles and basketball. Then I had practice which was fun because we did lots of competitions.

0709 I went to Gene Fullmer today with Mason, Ben, Stephen, Austin, Porter. So we did some 3 vs. 3. That day was really fun because more people were there. When Mason and I are on teams it is so fun! We just hit 3’s. We run our “play.”

0708 We went to Clay’s church for Sam’s baby blessing. Then we went to Clay’s house for an hour or two in 90 degree weather. It was so hot! That’s all we did today.


0707 I had my Rec. game against Steve Rogers today. He was Keaton’s old coach. We won by 15 or so. Keaton won his game by 4. He made a 3 with about 5 seconds left. I didn’t see it because I had to leave early to my Superleague game. We were playing Utah Dynasty. We won by 13 points. So I had a pretty good day.

0706 We went to Jump N’ Bounce with Bailey, Jacob, Travis, Tony, Mark, and Mara. We played tag for a long time. It was really fun until people started to tell on us. We threw the football from one bounce house to another bounce house. This lady told us to stop that too! So we had nothing to do. Then we went  home and got wet and had a water balloon fight. The water balloons actually popped on contact! It was awesome!

0705 I went to Gene Fullmer with Stephen, Luis, Jared, and Ben. We had practice after so we were there for 8 and a half hours. My 9th grade friends showed up for 2 hours or so. Ben and I scrimmaged them. Stephen, Jared, and Luis left. They are good because they play basketball a lot. They were on the Copper Hills 8th grade team last year. Practice we just scrimmaged Keaton’s old team.

0704 Today was the Fourth of July. Dad went to get some fireworks. We actually got some aerial ones. They were pretty cool. We went swimming at Maga’s today, too. I didn’t’ want to go but I was forced to. Aunt Livi went hiking in the morning and called in and didn’t know where she was. So my Dad went to the mountains to find her with Search and Rescue.

0703 My friends and I went to Gene Fullmer today. It was Stephen, Luis, Ben, Stockton, and I. Conner and Keaton went too. I got a month pass there. They had to take my pictures which I thought was pretty funny. It was really fun. After that we went to basketball practice and Jared’s church. Only five people showed up so we only did fun stuff.

0702 We went to Snowbird as a family. They had the Alpine Slide a Mountian Flyer (Zipline), bungee trampolines, and a mechanical bull. It was really fun but I got sunburned on my face and neck. The Alpine Slide wasn’t as good as the one at Park City.

0701 We went to church had the sacrament. Had a lesson. I had to do Fast Offerings. They took 30 minutes in church clothes in 90 degree weather. Then I went home to rest and eat. Dad also made homemade ice cream!

0630 I had a 8 o’clock game (morning) and a 3 o’clock game. The 8 o’clock was Rec. game. It was really close. We only won by 8. We pressed them the whole game. That was the only reason we won. The 3 o’clock game was against Pump N’ Run. The rematch of last year’s championship game. Half there team was gone at a camp. We won by 19 points. Mason and I hit 6 threes together. After that game was the neighborhood carnival. It was fun but not like last year. Travis got hurt running from Landon. He slid on the Slip N’ Slide and hit a stake.

0629 We went to Jump N’ Bounce with Travis, Bailey and Jacob. It was really fun. Landon actually came this time.  We brought a football and we threw it from bounce house to bounce house. It hit a light once. When we played TAG Landon was chasing me and I got a way because I jumped over this little kid to a bounce house then bounced back.

0628 I had practice today which was pretty much it. It was fun … I guess. The NBA Draft was going on during Keaton’s practice. So I watched it. It was good. The first 2 picks were from a great basketball school, Kentucky. Anthony Davis and Micheal Kidd-Gilchrist.

0627 Today I pretty much did nothing. I didn’t feel well, but I didn’t barf. I felt a little better when I woke up from a 30 minute nap. I played “Around the World” ping pong after my nap.

0626 Today I went to practice after not feeling very well. Landon took off his toe protection then I didn’t feel well. Then 2 hours of practice in the sun doesn’t help either. After practice my mom got Domino’s pizza. I wasn’t in the mood being sick and all. That was about it.

0625 Mason, Ben, Porter and I went to Gene Fullmer today. Mason and me went at 9:10. Ben and Porter showed up at 10:30. We stayed till 7. So I had about 9 hours of basketball. I was so sore! I went home and went outside to hangout with friends, it was weird. Then I begged Dad for a tramp. He wouldn’t budge. He really doesn’t want to buy anything for that spot in the backyard. I hate it!

0624 Our summer league started with a win by 5 to a team who was in the upper division but didn’t do very good. Then the other game we won by 22. It was really easy. We did full-court press that destroyed them. For scouts we went to Gene Fullmer to pass off our swim checks. It was really fun! We played basketball in the water. I’m not as good in the pool than I am on the court. J I’ve been wanting Junior Mints (AMAZING CANDY) and a trampoline. We want a trampoline because we went to Scott and Amy’s house and they have a tramp. We did lots of flips because our cousin does parcoure. He does tons of flips and stuff. It is way cool.


0610 So we went to the championship with basketball. Grizzlies vs. Pump N’ Run. This team didn’t lose in the whole season. We were the 2nd seed and they were the 1st seed. We were missing Stockton and Rowland. So we were nervous. They won Lights Out and we lost to Lights Out. So yeah. We played and the outcome was … GRIZZLIES win! We got barf colored T-Shirts. But I got another T-Shirt for winning and now I feel good! J Then we went to Maga’s for Aiden’s and Amare’s birthday party. It was really fun! We went swimming and had pizza and cake. Pretty good day.


0606 I went to Airborne today. I went with Jared(Puma) and Travis. It was free in the morning from 6-9. I woke up at 5 in the morning! I didn’t want to get up! But it was so fun! The time seemed to go to by fast! It was the greatest ever! Mom made me do this because she has been a nice person.

0603 I finally had a game! We didn’t have one last week because of Memorial Day. This was elimination. We played Herriman2 before and won but they were missing players. This time it was more tense. We won by 5 but it was a yelling game. The other coach got a technical. He went to the corner because he didn’t want to be thrown out. I watched the game after because who won in that game we played next week. We play Pump N’ Run. We never played them before it was nice to scope them out. I’m also out of school. So now I can sleep in. Yay!

0528 No games on Saturday which I was bummed about so I went to Stephen’s and Keaton came with me to play with Conner. Stephen and I went to Gene Fullmer. We were there for 3 hours. It was fun but with more people it would’ve been funner. Sunday I had to speak in church which was the first time I had done that. I was scared but it wasn’t that bad. Then we had steak and mashed potatoes with Grandma and Grandpa. Then on Monday(Today) we went to Virg’s and we were supposed to go to the Alpine Slide in Park City but it was too cold for mom I guess.

0513 Saturday I had 4 games. It was pretty crazy. My toe hurt the first game which we won and let us go on to play another game at 12. We lost at 12, we played Lone Peak and the refs were pretty bad and our coach got a technical. Then I had another game in Dimple Dell at 6. We were SUPPOSED to play a GOOD team. They SUCKED! We won by 32. The refs weren’t great here either. Then in rec we were surprised because the other team came out and took the lead at the start, but we came back and killed.

0506 On Saturday I had games back-to-back-to-back. The first game was easy. The second was really sad. It was against one of the best teams in the state. Then we played Brian’s team in rec. Coming late was nerve wrecking for me. I was hoping it would still be close by the time I got there and it was only 5-0. We still lost by 5 or something but I was double-teamed the whole game so I didn’t score. I wasn’t happy about the double-team.

0429 I have had 5 games this week and my record was 2 wins and 3 losses. Not a great record. In our Dimple Dell game we lost by 14 to a team that we have beat before a while ago. Jared took forever to get there because he thought the game was at 6. So he showed up in the fourth quarter. After my first game I wanted to get new basketball shoes and I did! Flywires! I also got new Nike Elite socks. So I was pretty happy! J In our rec game I made 5 threes like I said I would.

0422 We had a BYE for the Grizzlies yesterday which I was bummed about because I like those games. We still had a game at Gene Fullmer which was an awesome game because I destroyed that team with threes. We won by 44 points. We are starting CRT testing for Language Arts on Tuesday which sucks, because CRT testing is so confusing and stupid!

0415 So yesterday we had a game against the Hawks. We won again so now we are the best team in the league but we have had one more game then the other undefeated team. The other game ran over by 15 minutes so we started late. Mason and Rowland had a game after this so they left after the first quarter. It didn’t matter so yeah!

0408 This five-day weekend has been good so far. On Friday I went to Topaz Mountain with Keaton and our troop. Another troop came, too. I wasn’t very excited that another troop was coming, but it was fine. I was actually happy they came! The other Scout Leader was in the military and he had a M4, M9, .22, and a Raging Bull AKA .44. I shot everything besides the Raging Bull. We played Pirate a lot. That is a fun game! Glade got a lot of Topaz in this pocket up the mountain. It was pretty awesome! The ride there and back was one of the more pleasurable things for this trip. I won’t be able to go next year because I’ll be a Teacher. Oh well!

0401 So the Grizzlies played Herriman 2 on Saturday. I came in thinking it was a pretty good team just because of scores. It was a pretty good team but we still won with comfort. Most of my points were at the free throw line. But I did make a half-court buzzer at the end of the first quarter. Then on Sunday it was General Conference, so we went to Maga’s house. It was fun because Clay was there and he made his famous donuts. Also this week is a three day week because of Spring Break, it’s gonna be so awesome to have a four-day weekend!!!

0325 Since I forgot to do a journal entry last week, I have to do a “triple double long one,” says my mom. So Dimple Dell’s game was at six. We played the “Dawgzz.” Doesn’t seem like a great name. Mason was late and Rowland wasn’t even there, or Parker. So we were short on big guys. Mason came at about halftime. He sparked the team for some reason. Right when he came, we got a ten point lead. That gave us a little bit of a cushion. We almost got to a twenty point lead, but it never happened. The lead went to nine with about a minute left. We just passed the ball around and won by thirteen. Then we went straight to our Rec game. We killed….of course. Mom isn’t videoing those games anymore, she wants to run the track again. Mom was really tired because she ran five miles in my game and five miles in Keaton’s game. So she got her workout.

0317 Finally my Dimple Dell Superleague season began. I couldn’t wait! We got Mason and Rowland back, which makes the team stronger. The lineups went like I wanted too! Mason, Rowland, Luis, Jared and me. That is a really strong lineup. We were missing Stockton though. We went to the Jazz game. LOWER BOWL! I’m jealous how he has season tickets L



0304 We’ve had Jr. Jazz tournament games. Had one on Friday and Saturday. Friday it was at Magna Recreation Center. I don’t know why, but I was really nervous. We won by 14 and had a nice start. Next game was a piece-of-cake win. No one could guard me. My threes just wouldn’t drop though. Then Sunday I woke up with a pain in my ankle and I still have it. Let’s hope it heals before Thursday, my next game.

0226 The past weeks I haven’t had a lot of basketball games. I had one on Saturday. We played Olympus…again. We lost….again. I did pretty good….again. Then on Saturday also I went to Branden’s church ball game. Ellie, Sam, Parker and Emily(Branden’s sister) were there watching. Most of my friends are on Branden’s team. Austin and Carson were on the other team. Branden’s team lost by one point, it was sad. We went to Branden’s after. I love his house, I don’t know why. Then he went to dinner with his family so Sam, Brady and I went to Dallin’s house for All-Star Saturday. Jeremy Evans won the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest!!!!! J

0219 Tuesday I went to Fun N’ Motion with Stockton and Stephen. They are closing next Monday. My mom had coupons so we went and used them up. It was really fun. We had pizza a punch. I destroyed them in Lazer Tag. Stephen’s gun didn’t fire properly, it was hilarious! On Thursday practice was canceled because of lacrosse. I went to Stephen’s house because we were already there and my mom left so I went to his house. They have a cool hoop in their basement. Connor, Stephen, and I played there, most the time. On Friday I went to a Copper Hills game. They played Jordan High School. They destroyed in Soph. They lost in JV. Then in Varsity they won again. It was a great time. I went with Branden, Sam, Tanner, Bryson and Dallin. We played in the auxiliary gym a lot. On Saturday Branden, San, Tanner, Bryson, Dallin and I went to our friends game. They destroyed. We went to Branden’s house after the game. It was really fun. We dunked on the hoop in the backyard. Then when we settled down downstairs Sam attacked me and made my hair all wiggly and soft again. He soaked it with sponges then dried it off. Then I attacked him. His hair stayed the same because he uses a ton of gel. It was a pretty great week!




0213 We played Juan Diego again. This was a tournament game. We destroyed. This time we had Cody. 48-20. We went to Mountain Mikes first. I like their breadsticks. I had a church ball game on Saturday. Travis wasn’t there. We won. I got new shoes. They are Protégé. I like them. They are cool.

0205 Yesterday most of my seasons were ending. Church ball isn’t but we won by 4 and I did pretty darn well. Then I was late to Brian’s game but we still won. Then for Klint’s 8th grade it was 1st seed against 2nd seed. We were the 2nd seed and we lost by 11. We were getting killed in the first quarter but we came back with threes. Copper Hills was a blow out game. We lost by over 20, I think it was 28. But they were a good team.


0128 On Saturday I only had two games. CH didn’t have a game this week. Brian’s game we schooled again. Klint’s game we lost by 3 by a buzzer beater. I went to Mason’s church for his church ball game. I saw Rowland play. Then the other team didn’t show up so I played Nate, too. Then it was Mason’s game and they had 3 players I played and it was with 4 players the whole game and we won by 17 and they were all Priests.


0122 (Sunday) Saturday I only had 3 games today. I won all three. The first was easy (Brian’s game). The second game was harder, it was the game that we won by three before but we won by over ten that time. I had to be late to my Copper Hills game but I would’ve been there on time but the game started early.

0115 (Sunday) Saturday, I had five games, but I would’ve had six but two of the games were at the same time. I won five of the six games. We should’ve won our last game, but I was off. Then I had a game on Monday and we won. I played the team before on another team and we won both times.

0108 (Sunday) We didn’t go to church today, well not our church. We went to Shane and Alicia’s church for Calder’s baby blessing. Then we went to their house and eat. I wasn’t really hungry. Yesterday I had three games and I made it to all of them. The first one was tiring. I was sick the day before that’s why I was tired. The second game I was better and the third game I was best.

0101 (Sunday) It's 2012. We started 9 o’clock church today and I was really tired. We went to Travis’s house for New Year’s Eve last night. We played Kinect Sports on the Xbox 360. It was really fun. I wish I had one. In church I was so tired but I couldn’t fall asleep. I got a new class which I think will be fun. Then we did a combined lesson with all the young men.
