Soccer – First Game!

September 16, 2016

K started his first ever sport team. We decided to have him begin with soccer. Both the hubs and I know very little about the sport. In all honesty, our thought process was ” they have to run around a lot and get tons of energy out – lets go with soccer”. I have two cousins in college who are pretty much all stars at soccer, so maybe I am hoping “it runs in the family”. We were warned not to expect too much from team made up of 3 & 4 year olds. For us, it is perfection! They know nothing about the sport, we know nothing about the sport. We shall grow and learn together.

There is something so absolutely adorable about K in a uniform. I love seeing his little legs with shin guards and soccer socks. There is also something so sweet about the little ones kicking the goals into the wrong nets and stopping mid game to look at birds or a plane flying by. I absolutely love these moments of being a mom. Seeing your children try something for the first time, it feels like such a gift. I get so excited to think about the kiddos finding what they love and watching them grow.




School Orientation

September 15, 2016

M & K were both super excited to go to orientation for school this year. There is something that feels really comforting to me knowing that they will be in side by side classrooms this year.

We got dressed and raced out of the door with pure excitement. I thought K might be a little apprehensive because can sometimes be a mama’s boy…….wrong. Don’t worry about me K. I’m good crying here in the corner by myself.

M is my social butterfly. She did immediately race up to her friends and play however, by the end of the hour she was sure to be in my lap. She has been needing extra cuddles and care and I am certain it relates to the new babe coming and all the transition. No worries M, I got as many cuddles as you want!

I think this is going to be a great school 2016-2017 school year!


Apple & Pumpkin Picking

September 12, 2016

Fall is my favorite season of the year. The weather is perfect. Outdoor activities are fun and beautiful. I simply love everything about it. We normally wait a bit later to do apple & pumpkin picking but, with weekend soccer games and busy schedules right up until the baby comes, we decided to go early. I am so glad we did. The day was amazing. You can’t ask for anything more. And definitely do not rule us out yet, we will try to find someway to fit this into our schedule again.
