What I've been spending time on...

Sorry I havent' blogged a lot....but I've been spending tons of time with Soccer stuff and this sale I'm consigning in next weekend. Give it a visit and check it out. I was able to set up this blog for the ladies hosting the sale and it's been really fun to pitch in and help get the word out. There are some fun and talented ladies in this group! Now let's hope I finish all this furniture sitting in my shop! Good thing Beppe's coming up to help with the last minute rush! :) I'll try to post pics of the sale so you can all see the fun if you aren't able to make it! The two pics above are just some of the little things I'll be hawking (sp?) next week.

A Beautiful Day for Soccer

Well, BO#2 had his FIRST ever soccer game yesterday! He did great! He's one of the youngest (though not the smallest) kids on the team but he didn't look like it on the field! He really goes after the ball and doesn't back down. We were a little concerned after his first practice; he kept falling down for theatrical purposes, but didn't do it at all for the game. We had one lost cleat episode. I guess big brother's cleats are a little too big still :) The team named themselves the Green Dragons. Gotta love little boys!

BO#1 had his first game of the season yesterday too. Unfortunately, both boys have their games at the same time so daddy has to miss BO#2's games since he's coaching BO#1. But the Tiger's (3rd picture) did great too! BO#1 wanted to name their team the Cheetos! Both boys have a pretty natural knack for the game...wonder who they get that from? Daddy, maybe?

I fear I've become a dreaded soccer mom. I've been roped into serving on the soccer board and running the league fundraiser. Not to mention 6 more weeks of twice weekly practices and Saturday morning games....cross your fingers that the weather stays nice through the end of October and I don't lose my marbles in the meantime!

Some more high chair fun

Here's some fun shots of BO#3 enjoying some crackers...oh how I love that he can feed himself! The boy said sayonara to baby food long ago. His favorites? Mini babybel cheeses, graham crackers, top ramen, grapes, mandarin oranges, peaches and lunchmeat. We figured out long ago that he loves salty/spiced food. I had to put the kabosh on daddy feeding him the top ramen; I think he drank a gallon of juice after the saltiness of that meal! Don't you love the squinty eye look? That was a favorite expression over the last couple of weeks. Too cute!
