Well, our son has started playing soccer. We decided to let him choose which sport and he chose soccer first. I am OK with that. I think it's a great way for him to learn about teams and really, no skills are needed to play soccer at this age level. We had our first game this past Saturday. It was fun to watch and he did really good. Especially for this being his first game. I saw some of his competitiveness come out and he did a great job of getting into the game.
Here he is trying to look like he knows what he is doing. He played a good portion of the game.
This video is when he got the ball and almost scored. Please excuse the screaming. I was just so excited for him.
Do your kids play sports? If so, which did they start with?
Our school district has had spring break really early in the last couple of years. And when I mean early, I mean like 1st or 2nd week of March. Early. It used to be the week before Easter, but due to state testing, it is now earlier in the year. This year, it was just the kids and I for the whole week. M had to work out of town that week. Thankfully we had some beautiful weather and spent most of the week outside. We rode bikes, took our last swim in my mom's pool (she sold her house recently) and generally just played outside. It was a nice, relaxing week.
Pretty Girl has taken to holding our cat, even if the cat protests. This is her telling me "see? Trevor stays." Yea, yea. I've heard that before, right before the cat growls at her
I found this yummy drink on Pinterest. It's supposed to be with a Naked strawberry drink, but tastes good even with Fruit Punch :)
We went for a walk with our old neighbor one morning and were finally able to meet her little bundle of joy. It was a really nice walk and a great chance for her and I to catch up. We only live two roads away now and need to try and get together more.
We had to get Booger's hair cut, so we did and I really like how it turned out. Although I must say, it makes him look like a big kid. :( There are no more babies in our house.
Playing nicely together. It's amazing how nicely they will play together outside, but once we would go back inside, it was all fighting and screaming. Hence why we were outside so much. :)
Taking our last swim in grandma's pool before she closed on her house.
Of course the dog needed her hair cut as well. :) So to the groomers we went as well.
Oh did you guys notice how short Pretty Girls hair is now? Oh yea, I wasn't planning on cutting her hair any time soon. However, SHE decided it was time for a hair cut. Yup those pics are of her hair cutting skills. :( I knew she was too quiet in her room. Thankfully M was awesome and able to fix her hair. I had a small coronary.
All in all it was a great break. Too early in the school year for me, but what can you do? I don't get to choose the dates.
