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. While the big kids were busy huddled up for some soccer instruction someone decided to make a quick getaway with all of the soccer balls. Too bad you can’t start until you are three ball bandit. She 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.
Picked up some little plants at the neighborhood plant sale.A 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!
Let’s hope that these two have green thumbs.
They were so excited! We 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! Dumbo 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.
She 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. 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.Then she wanted Josephine to get to ride too. (Name Given By Henry).
