The Box

Scotty misses Amelia when she's at school too. Today he and I made a secret hideout.
The first thing he said, "I can't wait for Sissy to see it, can we go get her now?" It was only 10:15am
Then it turned into a Tiger's Milk Bar stand.
PS- Target has really cheap grills in clearance.

1st Soccer Game

We had Junie's first official game and he was a total star.
He lined up and obeyed the coach.
He ran super fast.
He did what little boys do...
He got so happy when he made a goal.
He waited for me to see him.
He waited his turn.
He took the ball away from the other kids.
He listened to the coach.

He got all sweaty and dirty.

While these 2 crazies had their own fun.
"Look Mom, this peach has buns!"

Introducing... Sammy Soccerboy

We told Scotty long ago that when he pooped in the potty we would sign him up for soccer. It's hard for me to believe that this day has finally arrived. He loved every bit of his outfit. If his feet look a little large it's because those are size 13 1/2. We found them and the shin guards at a garage sale this past weekend. $4.00 AWESOME!!!
So excited!
Practicing the dribble.
Time to kick it.
The best sister on the earth was babysitting.
They found sticks and leaves.
Water and prayer break. (only in Wheaton IL!!)
Time to scrimmage.
Junie in the goal...
Games are Saturday mornings at 8:30am!


Amelia is doing a great job as a first grader. The days are long and I have to confess that I sit in my car in the parking lot and stare at her on the playground (creepy and not normal, I know)

This new pink skirt is her very favorite!! (Marshall's clearance $7.00)
Tonight we told her we would do ANYTHING she wanted to do and she said family moive night and a family dance party!!

1st Grade

Yesterday was Drop Off Supplies/Meet the Teacher for Amelia. Her new teachers name is Miss.Clark and she seems VERY nice!
We are really thankful because our friends the Hogan's youngest son Tyson is also in the class.

Is this funny or what, could they stand further apart?

This morning we made Amelia her favorite breakfast and some Chardonnay... I mean apple juice;)

We got her all clean.

Then it was time to take her to school. (sniff, sniff)

How on earth can our little baby Amelia be in 1st grade already?

Doesn't she look too little waiting for the doors to open?

Scott sure will miss her.
My little sweetheart waiting in the gym for the teacher to take her to class...
Who's that naughty, barefoot baby?!
A quick wave as she follows her line down the hallway. (I'm thinking about homeschooling!!!)
The boys and I were waiting at the door when she got done. We missed her so much and to think that it was just a 1/2 day today. Is she really going to be gone 6 hours tomorrow?! (boo,hoo)

Zoo and Lake

Lincoln Park Zoo was awesome and Mr. MackyMac loved the fake monkey. Notice he's wearing a vest to keep warm, it's August?!?!
The real Apes were amazing.
They showed Scott all the animals.
Macker found a leaf.
Road a tractor.
That one.
The lion house.
Splash pad, it was freeeeezing.
The beach. Notice that NO ONE was swimming.
Macker found a ball.
Nice face Junedog...
Sweet moves, Sissy.
Eating so much sand he spit up his lunch. Neat.
Mr. SuperBrave.
Almost ready to go home.
Watch out for Mac!
The end.
