Flying High

Just a few pictures before the avalanche of Kindergarten awards assembly and Pre K grad pictures. :)

A sure fire way to guarantee a sweet picture. Bonding over the kindle. We'll take it because lately Carson has perfected the art of being a pesky brother and Kate has not yet perfected the art of ignoring him. Our house has been extra noisy lately...and not in a good way.

Picture this space with weeds as tall as the kids. It was a jungle but 2 week ends ago Carson and I tackled it. Much better. I thought I was going to do something with it but I kind of like it blank.

I was surprised at how well $1 kites from Wally World would fly!

It's all about the boots;)

Soccer: Dragons Style

Today was the last game for Carson's soccer team. He has really had a great experience. His style is to stay towards the back and play defense and defend the goal. He says that its "his job" if you try to make him join the offense. I have no idea how he got that in his head. He was so into his team and being part of a team. He has a running commentary during the game that is hilarious and cracks me and all of the other parents up. We all think that he will be play by play guy when he grows up. :)

At times she was an enthusiastic fan, at other times I called her the reluctant cheerleader.

Ah yes the popular let's make the ball and the cone into an ice cream cone. This never got old,  for the kids at least.

Kate took her job of keeping stats VERY seriously.

I loved the size difference between Carso and our ref this morning.

His "MONSTER" kick!

He LOVED playing. When all of the other kids needed a break Carso was more than happy to go in and hated sitting out. Every game he asked his coach why he couldnt play all 4 quarters.

Everyone in hot pursuit.

This was a really special group of kids. This is what they decided to do at the end of the game. And there were always lots of hugs and high fives after goals.

Loving that trophy.

The motley crew. :)

I thought this was a pretty funny and original trophy

Carson's coach was amazing and Carson loved him. I think Carso gave him about 10 hugs every game. Such a patient and  great guy.

The Good Life

I have everything I could ever need right here and right now.

God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
