An exhaustingly good day

Yesterday was great!  We had a lot planned and knew it would be fun but tiring.  There was soccer to be played, soccer pictures were scheduled for after the games and then we had planned to go to the state fair with Steve and Jorge that evening.
 Peter's team had their very best game of the season yesterday.  Peter played goalie for the second half of the game and did a wonderful job!  With some coaching from Caleb, Peter got in there and made a lot of great saves.
 Caleb's team did terrific also.  Caleb played goalie for the entire game and did great!  You cannot see Caleb too much in this picture but I posted it anyway to show you how he made most of the saves for the game.  He took charge and went into the crowd of greens to pick up the ball, time and again.  He really did a great job and his team won.  Good thing too.  It is always nice to have a good game on picture day, to be able to look back on the day and know you gave it your all.

Finally and after all that time in the sun we went to the state fair.  The kid enjoyed a lot of different things from the fair.  Haley loved seeing all the animals and had fun petting the bunnies.  William and Peter had fun watching a small portion of the rodeo with me.  William had his dream come true and was able to go on the high jump.
Caleb's favorite part of the fair was playing the games to win a little prize.  Oh, and I think he also really liked his fried scone with honey butter. :)  Each of the boys were able to win a cute little stuffed animal and they were so happy to crawl into bed that night and not have to walk any more.  They were tuckered!  What a fun way to spend a Saturday.
One other thing that I do not want to forget about last night was Peter losing another tooth.  Peter seems to always be ready to lose them right when he is so tired that he cannot deal with the pain or drama of it all.  We were at the fair, getting ready to leave and Peter wanted some cotton candy.  He loves the stuff so I obliged and the boys were happily eating it when he started to cry about his tooth hurting him.  He did not want us to pull it but it just hurt him so bad.  There he was in tears and he said, "Mom, I can't even eat my cotton candy."  Broke my heart.  Here it was all he wanted all night and now he could not even enjoy it.  So, we get home and everyone is sooo tired.  But my awesome Peter went upstairs to brush his teeth because he knows that is just what you do before bed.  All of a sudden I hear him exclaim, "Mom, my tooth fell out!"  I ran upstairs to see the evidence and he said that while he was brushing the tooth just popped out.  Yeah!
