It's Film Festival Time...

So, Kristen's brother and his friends created an awesome clip for the film festival. They had 24 hours to write, film, edit, export and upload a 3 minute film! They did an amazing job! If you want to see the film click on the picture below!

The Update...

Well, not long after our win last Wednesday night a friend of ours was hit by a car while walking to her ultimate game. She's okay, but broke both bones right above her ankle. I didn't find out about it until Thursday and we decided to go visit her after the game Thursday night.
Our game Thursday night was pretty sad. I don't think anyone on our team seemed too focused on the game. That mixed with the other team's talent made for a ruff game.

Inspite of the beating, we still had a great time together!

Well, our flag football season is over, but the floor hockey is about to start!!! :)

Here's a picture of a few of our team visiting Emily Plessl right after the game. We met there with some other girls that we worked with this summer.

We ARE the Champions!!! - Song of the Week!

So, this is definately the song of the week!
This movie clip is super long, so you don't have to watch it all. Plus, they aren't even playing the right sport! :)

Well, I don't have pictures to share this time, but we had our second flag football game just now. The first game I was able to catch an interception... this time I got TWO of them! We were rocking the field! Wish you could all come play; it's amazing!!!

CRAZY Connections!!!

So, the girl that gave me the 'pump' on her bike and that was part of my winter campout it Kristen Lee. She's from Logan, Utah and she's pretty much the bomb!
This is a picture of one of her crazy poses... she's hilarious!
Kristen and I worked together at Badger Creek this summer. One weekend part of her family came up to visit and I wanted to meet them so I told Kristen to come home with me to Rexburg and they could pick her up there. My parents were out of town that weekend, but there was a small picture of my mom's family in front of the Logan temple that Kristen's mom saw and was looking at. Since they are from Logan the had met my grandparents a few times and it was fun to have that connection.

Well, last weekend I was in Utah for Conference and I ended up going to Kristen's house Saturday night to spend the night watch the Sunday sessions. Saturday night I was asking Kristen where she grew up and where all she had lived. She was born in Provo, lived in Springville, moved to Europe, moved to St. George and then to Logan. It's always fun to find out that a friend lived so close to you at one point in both your lives.

On Sunday Kristen's parents started to ask some questions about my family. They asked how long we had lived in Rexburg and I told them that we just moved there a couple years ago. So, they asked where I lived before that and I told them Kooskia, Idaho. Then Kristen's dad asked what my dad did in Kooskia and if he still did it now. I told them that he did computer stuff for a company out of California. She the mom asked me what company and I told them Cadence. Then her dad's eyes got huge and he asked me what my father's name was. I told him Stan Benedict and they both freaked out! It was sooo funny and it scared me at the same time; I think I jumped. Anyhow, come to find out Kristen's dad worked with my dad before my dad got his job with Cadence! They would play raquetball and basketball together. Kristen and I went to work parties together when when she was 0-2 and I was 3-5! Crazy huh!?

This isn't my favorite picture, but it's one of my only pictures that I have with just the two of us... we'll have to do something about that!
It's so weird to me how many chances some of us have to become friends with spacific people. Kristen and I saw each other when we started our morality. We both lived in Logan at the same time, but never knew each other. Her brother moved into my USU student ward right after I moved out of it. Then we are both going to school at BYU-Idaho and have known a handful of the same people, but didn't make a connection until Badger Creek... what crazyness!
