I have been a lifelong resident of Taylorsville, except for two years I lived away at college and the first few beginning years of my marriage when we lived in Sugarhouse. Other than that(about 30 years!), I have always called Taylorsville home. I LOVE my city! It is such a great place to live. I love how close it is to everything, the freeways, shopping, entertainment, etc. I also love how the people who live here love their city as well. We have a very well run city government with people who only want the best for our city. The longer I live here, the more I know I don't ever want to live anywhere else. Another asset to living here is the great schools my children get to attend. There is a lot of pride in our education, schools, and teachers.
Here is Taylorsville High School, my old stomping grounds. I was a sophomore senator, a JV cheerleader, and a Varsity cheerleader during my years here. I made some wonderful friends who helped keep me on the right path. I had amazing teachers who challenged me to learn, grow, and become my best.
Last week, I saw advertised in our awesome Taylorsville paper, that the drama department was putting on the play "Metamorphosis," a play all based on Greek mythology. Mitchel, my 11 year old, LOVES Greek mythology so I thought it would be fun for him and I to go on a date to the theater. It was so fun to pull up to my old high school and see that wonderful things are still happening there. The play was well performed and interesting and we both loved it.
When the play was over, we wandered through the halls as I showed Mitchel my old locker, where I used to eat lunch, and the picture of the SBO's from my year. It was such a fun trip down memory lane with my son! There were new things in the school such as a huge Warrior statue that was really awesome, but mostly it was just how I remembered it, and all those memories were good. I look forward to the day when my children can call Taylorsville High School home.
Max, my 9 year old, has been privileged to be playing for the Taylorsville little league team for a few years now. He is starting to get quite a collection of Taylorsville baseball caps! This is his newest one he will be wearing this Spring on the 9 year old super-league team. They will be playing two games each Saturday competing against other 9 year old teams from all over the valley. He will also be competing in two tournaments, one in St. George over spring break, and one in West Jordan. I love that Max is loving baseball, and he's pretty dang good too! Taylorsville is known for their amazing baseball program and now I know why. The men who coach are so passionate about it and really want to teach the kids to love baseball. It's amazing to me how much of their time they devote to Taylorsville baseball. I feel so lucky that my son is benefiting from their dedication.
So I am a lover of Taylorville through and through! I had my sister-in-law make me these so that I could be the ultimate fan at all of Max's baseball games this season. I feel so blessed to be able to live here, work here, and raise my family here. Taylorsville is a really great city! (and we have awesome colors!)
