Seasons end....

So today was the girls' final soccer game, which I missed, because it was my volleyball team's sub-district day. We ended up playing three matches, and lost the last one 2-3, with the final game score being 13-15. Couldn't have gotten much closer than that! It was heartbreaking, but the girls played tough. The upside now is seeing Mike for two weeks before wrestling begins, and just being able to spend more time with my family. Wouldn't coach if I didn't enjoy it though, and I really did have a great group of kids and parents.

Check out this cute video Mike took at the game today. Kaia scores, but that's not the highlight:) Was a soggy field following a solid week of rain, but that makes it more fun, right? The girls were anxious to be back on the field after having to miss last week's game with the flu.

The girls spent the evening at our church's Trunk-or-Treat and trick-or-treating the neighborhood. Jaelyn was a kitty fairy, while Kaia was an angel. Mike said Kaia didn't want to keep the halo on because it was uncomfortable. Hmmm, could it be her little horns were getting in the way???

Josh is at Homecoming even as I'm posting. He has had a busy couple of days, and thankfully he is the only one in the family who has stayed healthy! Kellen is recovering from bronchitis, the girls are going on four days of fevers, Mike is recovering from his cough/fever, and I am beginning to feel as if I may be losing the battle!

Josh was voted homecoming prince for the freshman class, so that involved a photo session, assembly, alumni tea, and football game (in the first big windstorm of the season) yesterday.

Tonight he, his date, and a large group of kids went out for Japanese food, then now, at the dance. Can't believe he's already old enough to be on a date!

Happy Birthday to my family!

Sunday, October 11, 2009


Yesterday we spent a wonderful day as a family, celebrating Mike's 45th birthday. The day began at the girls' soccer game where they each scored a goal. Yeah! We then went to a Fall gathering at some friends house, where we made carmel apples, decorated pumpkins, played volleyball in the beautiful sunshine, and played in the dirt (guess which ones did that???).

Birthday dinner was a family favorite, my yummy chipotle macaroni and cheese, followed by a blizzard cake to cool down our mouths! I think Mike couldn't have had a better day of celebrating:)
