Friday morning mom slipped on the ice and broke her ankle. She ended up getting a plate, 7 screws and spent 2 nights in the hospital. She will be very limited in movement until next Tuesday when she can get a full cast. Right now she has a soft splint because of the swelling and the slightst movement can cause great pain. It will be 3 weeks in the hard cast, before she gets a weight bearing walking cast, which she will need to wear for a full month, so it will be a total of 8 weeks in a cast. We are lucky for all of our friends who have brought us over food (Julie is the greatest), clothes that will fit over the cast and a used walker(thanks Kathy). Along with the many flowers and calls. Mom has moved into the photo room on the main level until she gets her hard cast becuase it is not worth the risk of going up and down the stair on crutches. She has a bed, recliner, TV and her array of chargers for the laptop and cell phone, so drop her an e-mail or give her a call. Christmas and the start to wrestling season is going to be a challenge but I think we will be able to help her make it work, cause that's what Elliott's do, roll up your sleves and make the best of what you have.

Well here is our other surprise Tabor was named All Conference! He had an outstanding season on both sides of the ball, with a blocking percentage of 85.18%. The 0.18% is needed because teammate Taylor Rudenik finished the year at 85.05%, so Tabor led the team in blocking for the 2nd year in a row. He was nominated for lineman of the year for conference awards, but came in 2nd in voing. Defensively this is the 1st year since 9th grade Tabor got to play sugnificant minutes and he showed he was up to the task, being 2nd on team in sacks with 8 and frustrated opposing guards. For a very exposive offensive team it is an honor to get this award as the only offensive linemen from Nicollet and one of two defensive linemen to receive this honor.
Tabor is narrowing down his choose for college next fall and is looking at Junior colleges that will allow him to extend his footall career a few more years.

Deep Breath

Wow what a week! This morning it has been nice just taking a deep breath in and relaxing! Yes, we lost but the boyz had a fabulous season! This is the last time Tabor will be a Raider Football Captain. But knowing that all three boyz got to play together for so many games will give them something to talk about for years to come.

Darin & the Boyz along with many other football players went to the DOME yesterday to take in some football. The team and coaches all get in free because we made it to STATE! They have been staying at a hotel next to the MOA. I decided not to go because my girls ( yes, I have 14 girls) started basketball practice this week and I have a boat load of work to get done!

Even though we are not playing the excitement is still happening! We will have a couple of great announcements shortly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The best part of my job is when colleges contact me about our NPS kids! We have so many talented young people with really bright future's. Then the icing on the cake is they want your own son.

BUT... Monday we start wrestling. And then in two weeks we are up in the cities wrestling in a tournament. No rest for the Elliott's
