Please Congratulate....




the assistant coach of the year! Last night we attended the annual 'Y Awards' and much to my surprise, and Shawn's, he won the title. What an honor! We were just chatting away in the very last row of seats, not paying much attention. Then they began giving Shawn's description, and with a few familiar words, Shawn started listening, and then I did, and then his name was announced and he was invited to the stand to give a speech...if you will. He literally threw his gum at me and then took the stand. He did a really good job, considering the shock and un-expectation, as well as the crowd that consisted of every athlete at BYU, all the athletic administration, every head and assistant coach, spouses, and so forth. Anyway, he is going to be mad that I posted this, but it's quite an accomplishment. It's earned through votes from the whole athletic dept and players! Congrats Shawn. We are very proud of you and are so grateful to have a father/husband that takes his duty as a provider seriously. You work so hard and love what you do so much that you make supporting you not too difficult. LOVE you...Happy Anniversary too!

Shawn and Farrah,

Mikey and Tracie here. That is so completely awesome! You are gonna be one incredible head coach soon enough:) And to Farrah, that award is just as good as yours. I know when Mikey was awarded Valedictorian at his last school, I was patting myself pretty hard on the back:) hey you guys, up for a trip to Heber/Park City any time soon? We would LOVE to have you over for dinner soon! Also, if you don't have access to our blog and are bored out of your minds, send me your email address to tracie.wilton@gmail.com, and I'll add you. Again, congrats. But we're not really surprised to tell you the truth.
