Do I have photos for this post? NOPE! The only time you will catch me taking a picture at soccer is before play has begun. This mom has mental photos of soccer. So, permit me to brag about my awesome kids for a moment.....
Haley, she supports her brothers so well. And when she tells me that she is bored of being in the sun I tell her to "hush it up" and cheer some more. Yeah, I love that little girl.
William, another great game of soccer today. He does not like the bigger field, but he will get used to it. He tied his game 1-1.
Peter, he is a awesome little guy. Plays where ever the coach tells him to go. He did some defense today and ran all over the place. Then they put him in as keeper and he blocked those balls, worked on the drop kick and they won, 9-2!
Caleb, oh this boy!!!! He has such a great heart and spirit. Last night, he did not like me as mom. Bad practice=railing by mom. Oh, he was upset with me. But then we both calmed down and "talked" it over again. And today???? Scorching hot game and the score ended up 2-0. Oh yeah! You got it right, Caleb had a shut out!!!!!!!!!! OH, my boy! Took 12 shots on goal, one block by him, 10 saves by him and one awesome defense to back him up. And there was that call, that got him a penalty kick. By the grace of everything the kid shot wide and Caleb is happy to say he is perfect in his blocks of penalty kicks. The last 17 minutes of the game were so long.....just waiting for that final whistle to say, game over, your team won (with a shut out!!!)!!!! The whole team did great, played well together and it was awesome!
On to the next week, more soccer and cheering and supporting and encouraging. Love it!

A new season has approached. Hello, schedules. Hello, school. Hello, soccer.
Peter's team rocked it like no other. They won 20-0! Whoa. And Peter scored the last goal of the game. Good way to start a season.
William's team also did good. They won 3-0. William did not appreciate the heat nor the bigger field, but he will get used to it. It was fun to watch him play.
Caleb, the kid in green. Ahhh, the big goal. Ahhh, those Saturday games played right in the heat of the day. Ahhh, competition soccer - we say hello to a new era. They did well. Better than in their first tournament. They were able to keep up with the bigger kids and play well. We actually scored once. Unfortunately, we lost 6-1. Boo. But Caleb performed well. He made 6 saves, 3 blocks and they shot on goal like 17 times. It was a good first in competition, with much more to come.
And say hello to school. This awesome one started 7th grade and he was happy to do it! Hello, lockers and many classes a day and bell schedules and all the like. He came home talking about new friends and the cookies that the lunch lady served that tasted like pickles. Hilarious.
Diedre's first day of school lunch, I am proud of my cleverness.
Off to new learning and adventures.
Our silly Peter. He likes to be goofy.
Sweet little man. 2nd grade here he comes, and he has some of the best teachers that you could ever find. So excited for this new year.
This little Miss. She misses the deadline for Kindergarten, so she gets to hang with me, help me out and we will do our best at Mommy School again this year.

We packed a lot of adventure and fun in this last week!!! Whew! It was so much fun and I am even more bummed that school is starting. But on with the fun and awesomeness. Jonathan came with us to spend some time at the lake and we were so happy to have him along.
And we jumped, a bunch of times, in the lake!!!

The ward campout was this weekend and fun was had by all. Haley was the only one that got some decent sleep and she woke up in the morning saying that she loved camping. It was a perfect venue for the boys! The campground was surrounded by trees, small hills and mountains to climb and friends galore.

Oh, Summer! Where are you going?!? It saddens me greatly to think that school is starting soon and our relaxed and simple time together (at the cabin and at home) is coming to an end. Boo! So, to make the most of the time....
