Coleman started Kindergarten soccer last night, now I cried today for Kindergarten but Ryan nearly cried last night watching him play his first sport!!! He was really good, he scored 4 of the 6 goals and was the blocker the rest of the time. He could kick the ball pretty far and the other team only got 1 goal. Ryan's favorite part was the coaches telling him "your son's awesome", and "how long has he played?" And them telling him okay go in and make us come goals! Seriously Ryan cry's when our children are born, and I guess when they make their first goal!!
Ryan started flag football last night and hurt his leg, we think it's just bruised from a guy bashing into his knee so hopefully we can walk today! He looked really hurt last night. I think that this is definitely your last year hunny!

We went with the Brower family down to the cabin! The first night the 2 little ones were hyper, and making crazy face. That night about 1 am we heard someone throwing up, it was Coleman. So Ryan took him downstairs to sleep then he threw-up again at 3:30 am. A little later it was Boston throwing up and suddenly we thought it might not end with them. But no one else got sick, the boys had 2 friends also throw-up the day before. The next day we had our rafting adventure. The kids then just walked through the river and got wet since we all were already! It was a fun trip!

Coleman has been talking about this party since the day after his pirate party last year! Hopefully it turned out okay! I showed him a photo of a cake and in the morning he had to fix it and put the players on how he thought they should be. The boys played flag football, and a few other games. It was fun and a great day to have a party!
Ryan and I got engaged on August 18th, 1997. The day before Ryan's aunt had said she wan't to come visit me at work and I ssaid oh that's okay I'll just see you that night. And she said no I have to meet you before my nephew proposes, so I knew it would be that day August 19th. I told Ryan what she said and then he decided to change it and surprise me. He callled his friend Brad and said there's money on the bed I need the Bed of Roses soundtrack and a dozen Fire & Ice roses and one red rose. Take it up to your cabin and I will get her there. So that night after he got off the phone with his friend he came to my parents house for dinner. I was just finishing getting ready and I said "I'm just putting a ponytail in my hair, we aren't doing anything tonight" he begged me to do my hair so I did. When dinner was done he said Brad just called and he needed our help at his cabin, I was mad I really just wanted to do nothing that night. So I reluctantly got in the car and up the canyon we went. When we got there I saw his friends car, which also made me mad because we were supposed to be helping bring the benches down from the cabin. So we start walking in and the lights are of and I hear our song "Independent Love Song" was playing. I got scared and didn't really want to walk out there. When got almost there and we see his friend run past us saying "crap" he was supposed to be gone. There were candles and rose (Minuet roses) with the ring tied to the red one. Ryan asked me to be the mother of his children and marry him. I can't remember exactly and I said yes then he was shaking so bad he dropped the ring. It landed on a slat and didn't fall into the weeds below. we kissed and had some sparkling cider and went home to tell our parents.

Our big surprise Coleman has been a blessing since he was born. Here is his story (long story!), which we have told many times because it was such a miracle, but now it is written for posterity. We found out we were pregnant on New Year's Day, our baby Ashlynn was 6 months old! SURPRISED was an under statment. Thankfully I had agreat pregnancy and was not sick at all. I even had plenty of fluid! On August 16th I was almost 36 weeks pregnant, Ryan was helping my dad pack-up for the bow hunt, I was upstairs with my mom and I said "I feel like this baby is coming today, and he's not ready." I thought nothing of it until 2 minutes later were all heading down the stairs, I was carrying Ashlynn and my mom said "Let me hold her the last thing you need is to carry her down the stairs." Three stairs later I fell from the landing down 4 stairs landing at the bottom. I didn't hit the baby just my hands & knees, I thought I was fine. We went home and I laid down to rest, then Ryan's mom came to hel seal our wood floor. I left to get lunch for the kids, I wasn't aloud in the house (fumes), while driving I prayed to ask if I should call the doctor. The answer was "YES". I continued to think I was fine and overreacting and decided not to call. There has been only a few times in my life where the Spirit has actually yelled at me, this was one of those times, CALL THE DOCTOR kept coming through my head. When I returned home I did just that, they told me to come right down. I went to the office and they said with your blood type (0-) you have to have a test done at the hospital. I picked up Ryan who happened to have the day off and left the kids with his mom who also happened to have the day off.
I had the test done and it came out fine and the nurse said "We have to have the doctor check this and you will be on your way.". About 10 minutes later she came back and said "The doctor will be coming to talk to you, but he want's to keep you over night." She couldn't even tell us why, but the doctor came in and said "Coleman's heart beat is completly stopping every 10-15 seconds, so I want to keep you on a monitor for awhile to see if it's just stress." Wow we were surprized during this time frame my mom called my dad's new truck had broken down this morning on his way to Fishlake so she was on her way home form picking him up, he was going to get a loner truck tomorrow and continue on his way for the hunt.
The next morning the nurse came in and said "The doctor will be in anytime, I'm sure you are going home the baby is looking great." My mom called to say my dad was back on the road, and I said I should be home in the afternoon. 3Hours later I was pissed still in the hospital, wanting to go home. The doctor comes in and says we need to do an amniocintesis if it says the baby's ready we are taking him out, he's heart is still not doing great. If he's not ready I will be staying in the hospital for the week because he thinks my baby may die if I go home. Ryan & I were tough and then the doctor left and we cried, scared that we would lose our first son. I called my mom and told her the update, she preceded to tell me that my dad's loner truck had broken down within sight of the other broken down truck, and she was heading to pick him up and bring him home. She said she would be back in cell service in a few hours call her with the update.
After the amnio the doctor came in and said "he's right on the fence you two need to decided if we have the baby or wait", a decision you think would be very hard but after he doctor walked out we said a prayer and the answer was a huge "TODAY". We told the doctor and he scheduled it for 11:00 pm. that night. I called my mom and told her the news, and she said they were close so they would come to the hospital when they got into Orem.
My dad was saying "Coleman just really wanted him to be there so he broke down 2 trucks to get him home."
On August 17th, 2002 at 11:17 pm Coleman Ryan Crockett came into the world, 7lbs. 6 ozs. he was huge for a month early, the attending doctor said you guys got the due date wrong he's right on time. And then we got the answer of why his heart was having problems. The cord was around his neck causing his heart to stop beating whenever he moved around, he would have died before my next doctor's appointment. I truly tell my kids that my guardian angel my Grandpa Hirst pushed me down the stairs, so Coleman would make it here.
Coleman's dramatic story does not end there, he was not ready to come and had to be put on ventilator and life flighted (by ambulance) to a bigger hospital. But he powered through it all and only stayed in the NICU for 5 days and then he came home.
Coleman is our rare illness guy, if we take this kid to the doctor with a problem it's usually one they remembered it being mentioned in medical school, and they have to look it up in text book. But he is a joy in our life. If you must have only one boy Coleman's the one to have he loves all sports and is good at most of them, he can play outside forever, and is just all boy. He learned to ride a bike at 3 1/2 years old. He is great and we love him!

If you haven't guessed all 6 people in our family have summer birthdays. Two in June, 3 in August & 1 in September. So it is party central, we celebrated Coleman & Jaxsyn's early (deer & antelope hunts always interfere!). Jaxsyn was funny because she kept saying "ooohhh" "ooohhh" with every gift! It was great! Coleman got a huge set of Lego's and also a biker dude. Jaxsyn got mostly baby stuff!

Christy & I were able to go to the BYU Women's Football Clinic! It was so fun you get to eat, take a tour or the locker room & press box. Then the coaches & players talk to you and answer questions. Then we went on the field to do some drills, and then watch a movie while laying on the field. Then after you do a women's break (we go into a circle and say "women")! We were like kids in a candy store all giggly and excited. We were truly so pleased that we were making our husbands proud! We plan on doing this every year!
