2018 State Qualifiers

by | May 30, 2018 | Golf | 1 comment

Earlier this month, when we had to decide between traveling to the boys’ or girls’ regional tournament which were both taking place May 7th and 8th over 200 miles apart from each other, we decide to go to the girls’ since it was our freshman daughter’s first year playing.

I joked with the boys that they would just have to make it to state so I could see them play this year! I hadn’t been able to watch them play in over a year and apparently they have improved so much. I missed last year’s regional tournament since it was at the end of my pregnancy and I couldn’t travel or barely even walk. This year the baby hasn’t exactly been the easiest or quiet enough to take out on the course. I was so grateful for the pictures and updates from one of their coaches. Well…

THEY MADE IT TO STATE!
 

 

Our 15 year old shot a two-day total of 85-92–177 to finish 8th place overall and lead the Chieftains in the Regional Championship! He was once again named Athlete of the Week in the local paper.

The school’s activity bus wasn’t available and so they rented a Suburban. I’m still amazed that they were able to fit all six boys, two coaches, the boys’ luggage and food, PLUS EIGHT SETS OF GOLF CLUBS into that SUV!
The last time Rogue River made it to state was 2010-2013 when my youngest two brothers were playing for our local high school! I actually took the boys to watch that 2013 state championship. They were so little!!! 

We spent Mother’s Day driving up to this year’s OSAA Golf State Championship! 
I’m hoping to get a chance to tell you all about that trip soon… ⛳️

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
