Sr Night/Graduation/MPSF Playoffs

Such a busy week! Here are some pictures I got from last week's Sr Night to start off.

During the "ceremony"All the Chilton's in attendanceThe Wives' Club and our husbandsOne of the posters we made for Reed. James & Ella did the hand prints and Evan did all the footprints! And apparently the kids are flamingos!
This is the only picture we got on graduation day. It rained all day, so we just took one inside the Smith Fieldhouse. Of course the next day was beautiful, so we headed out to take some more pictures.
The grad with his parents and Evan.And these are probably my two favorite pictures of the weekend. Evan was so cute and happy checking out the flowers!
Saturday night BYU hosted the quarterfinals of the MPSF playoffs. #2 BYU defeated #7 UCLA in an exciting 4 match game! So the Cougars are now off to Stanford to take on #3 CSUN in the semis! Good luck Cougars!

#3 CSUN @ #2 BYU

So of course our camera didn't work very well this weekend, so I'll have to post pictures as soon as I get them from other people!

This weekend we had our last regular season home games. And they were huge games. The games this weekend would determine our seeding for the conference tournament and where the games are to be held.

Friday night was awesome! Our Cougars swept the Matadors! CSCUM is a pretty dirty team. And we can't stand them-so it felt so good to crush them! And #1 Stanford lost-putting us at the top! With this win we were gaurenteed to host at least the first round of the play offs-so our seniors get to be in town for graduation (Reed needs to go to at least one of our graduations!)! Things were definitely going our way and we were so excited. Saturday was our chance to clinch the #1 spot and get to host the 2nd and 3rd rounds of the tournament as well. And it was senior night. No pressure, right?! The match went 5 long games. It was so intense. I was pretty sure I was going to throw up, have an anxiety attack, and/or drop my baby during the 5th game. Fortunately none of those things happened, but unfortunately stinkin' Northridge got the big win. Dang. The good news was that Pepperdine lost it's game and we have the tie breaker over CSCUM, so we are the 2nd seed. If Stanford loses in the 1st round, we will get to host the last 2 rounds instead of Stanford. Let's keep our fingers crossed!

Like I mentioned earlier, Saturday was also senior night. A win would have been nice, but we just had to remind ourselves that the season isn't over. Me and Evan (and Reed's mom) got flowers and the seniors all got leis, a BYU blanket, and a nice beach volleyball. The announcer read thoughts from Coach Patchell and then read thoughts that the seniors had written. It was a nice little program, but we are sad this night came so fast. We have loved being a part of BYU Men's Volleyball!
One of the biggest highlights of the weekend happened off the court. Reed's parents are awesome and they flew Reed's oldest brother, Todd, in from Chicago for the weekend! Todd has never been to a home game and has only seen Reed play once in his life. Reed didn't know he was coming, so it was a really fun surprise. And because classes are done we were able to spend more time with Reed's family. It was so fun!

The Cougars start play offs this Saturday at 7pm in the Smith Fieldhouse as they host #7 UCLA.

Cal Baptist @ #2 BYU

That's right my friends, BYU as moved up to #2! Pretty exciting! This week they hosted Cal Baptist. They aren't a NCAA team, but they always have a pretty good team. Our Cougars swept them both Friday and Saturday night! It was so fun and Evan loved not having to stay out quite as late.

This is how Evan is happiest:
He likes to practice walking

He likes to be upside down and with Dad

And he likes to be outside in the sun...with as little clothes on as possible! (Don't worry, he is wearing a diaper and shortly after this was taken we put a shirt and sunscreen on him)

This upcoming weekend is the last conference home matches of the season! I can't even believe it. That means that Saturday is Reed's senior night. I'll probably be a wreck. We have loved being a part of this team and will really miss it. But anyways, if you're in Provo, come to the games. They are so fun and it would be awesome to send the seniors off with a good crowd. And they are playing #3 CSUN-it's going to be so exciting! So if you're in the area, we'll see you Friday and/or Saturday night at 7pm in the Fieldhouse!

#3 BYU @ #8 LBSU

Quick volleyball update:

Thursday night the Cougars won in 4. It was another one of those night's where they should've won in 3, but whatever. Reed dominated on serving-he even had an ace!

Friday night was a much better night. They won in 4 and they played awesome! Robb Stowell in particular had a great night-he hit over .900 in the first set! Reed had 63 sets and 7 digs and the team hit .460. These were big wins for the team and they are guaranteed a spot in the conference playoffs. Few more wins and they will be able to host the first round and be around for graduation.
