C is actually playing soccer this season!

He is older, wiser, and doing so much better this season. He consistently kicks the ball and follows the play. He was in the right place at the right time and scored this first goal this Saturday when the ball popped out from the crowd. This is a picture that Pops took with his phone last weekend...I know right? It is such good quality for a phone camera!

B is the head coach this season. It is surprisingly stressful making sure that all the kids and parents are happy, keeping all the kids on the field, and ensuring equal playing time.

The girls and I cheer from the sideline. Usually, AC sits around looking cute. AM, however, eats the entire game. She uses her cuteness to solicit snacks from other unsuspecting spectators. Even when I brought a box full of food, it wasn't enough.

The best part of the game is the end of the game tunnel! and the post-game snack.

Wii!

For B and C's birthdays, Granny got them a Wii... you know the video game console. This is AM and C boxing each other. AM is not really into it though:)
B likes to play the bowling and drink White Russians like he's the dude on Big Lebowski.


We rented Diego for Wii from the Blockbuster. That went REALLY well. C struggles with the games we have, but the Diego game is made for his age and doesn't let you lose:) B enjoyed it also.
I think this is such a great idea because you do have to be moderately active to play the Wii. You don't just press the buttons, you also have to move the remote accordingly to the game you are playing.
Here is B playing the baseball...see how he is actually swinging his bat. Awww...strike 3...your out :(

Who's four months old?

AC!! She is such a big girl now! She has rolled over a couple time already, but nothing consistently. She likes to sleep on her belly, but what are ya gonna do? She is laid back and pretty happy, but something is definitely going on teething-wise because she drools constantly and is trying to pull things into her mouth now.


Here she is sitting in her plush papasan.
She looks striking in green...

Who do you think she looks like?


Here is a compare and contrast with AM and C at 4 months...

First Day of School 09

Here is Last Years first day...

Monday was technically C's first day of school. We switched him to a new school where they have what is called "4 year old Pre-School". With his birthday being right before the cut off day, we will probably have him wait for kindergarten. At any rate, we decided to make the big change of schools this year. I, of course, was the only one who questioned or worried about this decision. C really took to his new school and has been sooo excited to go! Here he is on the first day!!



Here is AM on her first day...today. She looked so pretty, but smart too!!
At C's new school, they ask that he have a normal size back pack so his papers don't get squished. He borrowed Daddy's for the first day, but it couldn't be adjusted any smaller so we got him a new on that we could at least tighten it up. He'll grow into it...

This is C on his second day with the new backpack...that's better. ? :)

Here is AM's Dora backpack. She says, "Look! Dora! and no Boots!" She gets upset if you don't let her wear it when everyone else is wearing theirs!!
