CHAMP


So this is our family CHAMP! So many of you know, stock is a wrestler. He is part of the rocky mountain wrestling group. So i realized when we got into this a little over a year ago how intense it is and just how much pressure is on these boys and how tough they have to be. last season was a roller coaster to say the least. today was one of the first tournaments of the season at AF. Stockton rocked it! something must have clicked in his head cause now he is the athlete i expected nate to create with his DNA! needless to say he took first place in his bracket! he beat out a few kids that are known to be pretty good wrestlers. i am so excited, more excited then him and so proud!


so i have a phone dilema. my phone is toast. it has water damage and i cant get it to work effeciently. meaning it works but it turns off whenever it feels like it and it incline's itself with this action about 50-70 times a day. so i am not in a great financial place to purchase a new phone. i am not elligable for an upgrade which means at tmobile i would pay full price. i am considering buying a used refurb one but am nervous and dont know anyone with any experience or knowledge about that. i also am considering buying a prepaid tmobile phone and switching out the sim card (a great friend who used to be employed by tmobile told me this secret). either way it looks like i am looking at least at $100 any other magic tricks in your hats? does anyone have a used tmobile phone they arent using, that works, that they want to sell to me for CHEAP? so here is the phone i am dreaming of, dont have to have it, probably wont get it anyhow but just so i can dream.

Way to go CHAMP!!! He's such a stinkin cutie. So..I am queen of phone's being ruined in some sort of way. I have used refurbished phones and they have been fine. Also, you could try looking on Ebay. You can buy them online way cheaper. Good luck to ya! Can't wait to see your decor.

My phone died a couple months ago (figure it was killed by baby drool) -- same situation -- out of warranty. I was worried about buying a new or refurb one, too. I found one immediately on Craigslist. It was brand new, in the box and in its original wrapping. Got it for almost half the price and I didn't have to wait for an auction to end or for it to be shipped. Picked it up the next day and spent 15 minutes on the phone with Sprint to get it activated. We blue-toothed all the numbers off my old phone so I didn't lose anything there, either. Its worked like a dream...

Like father like son! Drew got kicked out of primary last week which just validates the fact that he is SO Joel's child. He was also the only one who had to be removed from the stand during the primary program for beating up the other kids and arguing with his teacher. I remember the days when Stock had anger management issues and I remember laughing...it's not so funny when it's your child :) I love that these boys are so much like their dads though...there's no limit to what they can do with that much determination! Drew runs circles around everyone in the neighborhood with a football in hand...so great! CONGRATS TO STOCKTON!
