Soccer Antics

IMG_0914 Been having a blast at soccer practice lately. Henry loves Coach Eric. It amazes me all of the fun games they come up with to get the kids doing drills. They are adorable. IMG_0901While the big kids were busy huddled up for some soccer instruction someone decided to make a quick getaway with all of the soccer balls.  IMG_0912Too bad you can’t start until you are three ball bandit.  IMG_0905She loves to cheer for Henry and the highlight of her practice is when the big kids get a water break and Nora gets to hand Henry his water bottle.  IMG_0930

We Planted A Garden

IMG_0932Picked up some little plants at the neighborhood plant sale.IMG_0940A quiet moment for planning and love before the digging in and getting dirty. Found oh SO many worms and centipedes. The kids are fantastic diggers but not too careful where they step. They keep stomping on the plants!

IMG_0961Let’s hope that these two have green thumbs.

Magic Kingdom

DSCN2132 They were so excited!DSCN2134 Florida Trip 013 Florida Trip 017We had a beautiful, perfect, crazy day. So thankful to Grandma and Grandpa for their willingness to join us on an adventure that I hope our kids will always remember! Florida Trip 019Dumbo was Nora’s favorite. Henry, of course, loved Buzz, for me it was It’s a Small World. I had never realized how gorgeous that ride was. No wonder it is still such a great attraction! I think Greg’s favorite was those race cars.DSCN2241

I Guess This Happened

IMG_1713She wanted her baby doll, Trudi, to ride the dinosaur. She now calls it “Monster” and it did live for a while in a toy bin forgotten. Until today. I guess there are girls who play dolls and girls who play dolls riding dinosaurs.  IMG_1717 But Nora was so frustrated that Trudi (Doll Manufacture Given Name) would not stay on the dinosaur. I was busy doing something and found myself kneeling before this nearly two-year-old as she explained in a variety of ways what she wanted to do. Rubber bands to the rescue. “Doll sea belts” I told her.IMG_1721Then she wanted Josephine to get to ride too. (Name Given By Henry).
