Wow… time has flown, and dragged, and life is chaos, and it is not entirely Shand’s fault, to be quite honest!!
I am ecstatic… we got out the door to go to Thad’s soccer game (4 more weeks of soccer!!) – and remembered the car that we all fit in is in the shop, so we can’t all go… shucks! I guess I’ll have to stay home and… download pictures and BLOG and have that cup of coffee I have reheated 3 times already. (Don’t laugh Brad – BIL who can’t appreciate the valid reasons I have for never being able to finish a cup of coffee…) speaking of… I’ll just go get it now, so that I don’t have to reheat it again before I have even had a sip!
Yes life is crazy, as usual, made worse by summer soccer… I knew they couldn’t be on the same team… I RESEARCHED it, to make sure they’d be at the same place, and the same nights, even if at different times… I spoke to the WRONG lady, apparently… we have soccer… FOUR NIGHTS A WEEK!!!
From 6:00pm – 7:00pm
And on the nights that Bryan works… that is me, carting 3 tired kiddos around, getting over-tired, hungry, sweaty (isn’t it the day to wash sheets tomorrow?) kiddos in bed, and dealing with an attention starved dog and a hungry, its-that-time-of-night-for-fussing baby.
Here are a couple pics of the stars… oh they ARE funny and cute, even if I do get weary of watching them run after a ball for 4 hours a week.
Keenan has matured SO much… he has played 2 weeks of games, and 6 weeks of practice, and he hasn’t complained, cried about the other team, whined about being tired… given up… NOTHING… he is a trooper and has improved so much in gross motor skills and determination… it is awesome – we are SO proud of him!
Dad is quite the sideline coach (which – we really need, because his team’s coach is pretty clueless and can’t control the kids… but HEY she volunteered, so we are thankful!!) Thad was running after everyone – just following them around. Bryan told him to run out ahead and then cut off the other team coming towards our goal… He pretty much got the run out ahead part…
He just put his head down and ran for all he was worth… over and over… paying NO attention to the ball whatsoever… he just ran down to the other end… even if everyone else had turned around and was heading the other direction!! 🙂
He does manage to wear himself out, that is for sure!! – by the way… what is it with ordering sz 8 clothes for the 4 yr old teams???
pictures of the baby and such are coming next!! 🙂 – Hey I have a whole HOUR by MYSELF!! (and the baby – who is still in the car seat from when we thought we were going somewhere! 🙂
