Busy Bee's

We had a wonderful weekend this past weekend. The kids to their excitement got to spend the whole weekend with Auntie and Uncle Caleb! Jake said he didn't want to come home, he wanted to stay with Auntie!! They got to go out to eat and to a birthday party and just plain have fun! It is great that they got to spend some time with them they enjoy it for sure!!

We however got to spend some time with friends! Our good friends Tom and Lynn got married on Saturday. It was beautiful wedding and a good time was had by all even if there was LOTS of rain!! It was nice to see everyone and just hang out.

We also started Dave Ramsey classes on Sunday, so things are going to get very interesting around here. It will be a good thing, we have lots of things we want to do and following this plan will help us to do this! I am hanging on tight for this ride!!

At the bottom here I added some of Emmah's soccer pictures! Enjoy!

Bunch Ball

Emmah had her first soccer game yesturday and it was fun! She has been waiting to play soccer since she was little, so this was her shining moment. We didn't even have to tell her twice to get her clothes on! It was an early game, 8:30 (early for mom and dad too!!), a little chilly too! But nothing could take the excitment away from her.

With her cheering section all lined up she had to start the game by sitting out, but when it was her turn she was ready to go. I am pretty sure that she spent a good portion of the game waving to her fans!! She played some defense, almost scored a goal, and then to her complete joy she got to be the GOALIE! She has said she wanted to play that from the start. During her time in the goal she spent some time sitting, dancing, and twirling around with another little boy on her team. Overall, she did a great job, her team ended up losing 7-5, but fun was had by all and to top it all off there was a snack and juice box involved!

Jake is getting so big and wants to help with everything. We just have to find the right things for him to help with. He too wants to play soccer, we are going to check into it for him. It would be indoor, but at least he gets to play.

I officially have a KINDERGARTENER!!!

Well, we made it through the first day! When you have a child you realize how hard it will be letting go, even as a baby leaving them for the first time, but when they head off to school it has that feeling that they are growing up and readying themselves to leave the nest. Okay I know that is like 13 years away, but still time flies!!
She was so excited to go and ride the bus and everything. I was surprised how quickly she fell asleep last night. I had prepared myself to read many stories and having to go into her room and tell her to please go to sleep. However she surprised me again and drifted right off into dreamland!
I had to hold back the tears as she jumped on the bus this morning, knowing she would be fine and have a great time. But as some you know and understand, that is still your baby heading off into a whole new world without you. She of course had a GREAT day and can't wait to go back tomorrow!! I am so glad she is enjoying it and look forward to all the new things she will learn and share with us!
