This past Saturday, Logan finished his last soccer game of the season. He LOVED soccer and is now begging to start basketball lol. As a celebration, we took the kids bowling. Dave loves bowling and we almost never go, so this was quite a treat.
Trent's first time bowling by himself. He was barely able to get the ball rolling lol.
Logan took a few chucks himself, but we at least tried to help him. He wanted to carry the ball himself everytime!
Laycee loved to get the help throwing the ball and then she would sit on the ground and watch it roll.
Haylee was loving this. Bowling is something she really enjoys and she was "serious" about this. She wanted the best score possible.
It was so much fun. The lanes here were surprisingly nice and we loved our time playing. We purchased an hour and got through 5 frames of the second game. I was impressed the kids could keep up to try and get as many turns in as possible. I was thankful Dave decided on this spontaneous outting.

Simple Fun

Thursdays: Karate, followed immediately by soccer, followed immediately by Activity Days
What does that mean? No one is home from 3 until 8. Sad huh? Well sometimes we just need a little fun. After the kids waited and waited patiently for each other to finish their activities, they were so DONE being patient. So, while Haylee was Activity Days, we piled in the back of the car and watch a movie together. The kids had to much fun and it was such a nice change to "family" time. Oh the simple pleasures in life... watching a movie together in the car.

After a cold day of playing in the snow, you just need a little hot chocolate with colored marshmellows to make you feel warm and comfortable. Or at least that's what the kids tell me!

All you need is Love

Some days, all you need is a little love to make it through the day. My children are who I love and I am thankful to have so much time with them!

Haylee got a pottery set for Christmas and I finally let her try it out. It took a little while, but she got the hang of it.
She's molding away.
Laycee was very sad that she wasn't able to participate. This was one of those things that I didn't want those little hands in on lol.
It was great fun for Haylee and she has enough clay left to make another pottery item. I can't wait to see what she makes next!

First Game

Logan had his first game a few weeks ago. The game was a bit chaotic because the other team only had two players, but they all had fun!
He's getting ready to attack
He was out run :(
It was great! I cannot believe he is old enough to play but he loves it.

What more can I say? They are adorable and make me smile!

Logan has loved sports since the day he was born. I believe one of his first words was balls. The first song he learned to sing was about balls and his favorite toys as an infant/toddler were... you guessed it, Balls. He could play throw and catch for HOURS. Well after 4 years of waiting, he is FINALLY old enough to play a sport. This is his first year of soccer and he loves it.
The kids are warming up, he is in Orange.
And he's off!
He keeps pretty goood control of the ball too.
He is smiling from ear to ear.
Every practice and game ends with a smile like this. He just loves it. I am so thankful he is finally old enough to play. Even in the insane wind and freezing cold, he still loves to get out there and play.

Outside, We're Going Outside

It was a rare day where the sun was shining and the weather was warm enough to go out an play. So, I sent the kids out to play while I made lunch. Haylee was begging for a picnic, so we took it to the driveway.
We had gone out that morning to Walmart. I hardly ever go to Walmart anymore since there isn't one just up the road. So while we were there, we picked up Subway. The kids LOVE the meatball sub.

Here is our Sassy who is now shaved. We took her to the groomers because she was in serious need to grooming. Well, the groomer came back with disappointing news that the matting (that she had when we got her) was too bad and she would have to be shaved. It was really sad, but she is beautiful and it will grow back.
I was thankful for this sunny day. We all needed a little sunshine and a picnic.

Burrito baby

Some days, you just wanna curl up nice and warm and sleep. And somehow Laycee figured out a way to wrap her little body into an even smaller blanket. I love her!
