first volleyball game!

Tessa is trying out volleyball for the first time ever this year.
It’s a sport that I’ve never played,
not even just for fun,
so I’m learning long with her.
June Anne, our production manager, is the coach
and her 5th grade team won their first set of matches!

Topeka Tourney

Last weekend Tessa and I headed (just the two of us) up to Topeka, KS for a soccer tournament,
I loved getting her all to myself for a couple of days!
 photo soccertourney3.jpg
One of the best things about soccer tournaments is terrorizing the hotel with hallway soccer!

Saturday morning it was a little foggy…

Her team played up in the older age group and took first place!

I love this dainty little necklace created with a sterling silver cube charm-
handstamp initials around the cube or add a heart, star or cross if you prefer!
Perfect for representing a family of 4, your kids, a couple (2 initials with 2 hearts would be sweet!)
or even a single girl with her initial all around the cube, so fun!

back to school (family randomness)

Last Thursday our kids started a new school year…
 photo 2014firstdayschool.jpg
We now have a 1st grader, 5th grader, 6th grader and an 8th grader.
 photo 2014efirstday.jpg
Eden was so excited for school to start up again and then shed a few nervous tears when we were leaving her the first morning: as I went to give her a goodbye hug she wrapped her hand behind my neck and didn’t want to let go and I saw tears spring to her eyes- broke my heart!
She seems to have adjusted- this morning I heard a quick “bye Mommy!” as she ran off to class.
She has the same lunch period as Tessa and I love that Tessa can check on her (they are close besties)-
last friday Tessa showed her how to go through the hot lunch line for a piece of pizza.
She’s playing both rec soccer (Flower Kickers) and academy soccer (Blitz United) this fall.
 photo 2014tfirstday2.jpg
Tessa’s favorite thing about 5th grade:
she gets her own locker.
Locker = best. year. ever.
Also, her cousin/bestie Isabella is in her class so that is just icing on the cake!
Her soccer team (Blitz United) is now officially a “competitive” team so there will be LOTS of soccer this fall (YAY!)
 photo 2014jfirstday.jpg
Jonah started middle school and is playing football this year–
so far his position is “slot receiver”, which I’d never heard of before, but he’s enjoying it,
and Ryan is the defensive coach for his team.
I. love. football season!!!
He’s also playing rec soccer- even MORE soccer to watch (YAY!)
 photo 2014cfirstday.jpg
Caleb started 8th grade and is officially taller than me at about 5′ 8″–
the monster kid wears a size 10 1/2 shoe and CONSTANTLY EATS.
He’s also playing football, he LIVES for football…
again: I. love. football season — it’s time to dust off the cowbells!

It’s going to be a great year!!!
