First soccer practice of the season

Well we have another hit. This girl just loves it all. We are going to have to start being pickier…I think we have hit our limit on activities.

So we headed out this weekend for MB’s first soccer practice and game of the season. It was 110 degrees and hot. TB and I managed to sweat more than you can imagine and end up with our first burn of the season, yes right when summer is over.

We love the soccer club though. The coach was great, really worked the kids with drills and fundamentals. Plenty of water breaks. Which were so cute. TB would hold up the towel and I would hold up the water- MB would run to us and grab the towel as she ran around our chairs and come up on the other side to get the water. She was in full spirit of the game.

After about 40min of practice they started their game. No goalies for this league and they did 6 on 6 and then 4 on 4 and 3 on 3. MB had the ringer on her team and he quickly scored the first goal. TB and I were both really surprised to see out right in the middle of the action MB was. She was right in their pushing and kicking and going after the ball.

She scored the 2nd goal and it was her first. Talk about a confidence builder. She was so bumped. I didn’t manage to get any photos but it was too cute to see the kids high fiving each other and really being supportive. Loved it.

The white team (MB’s team) ended up wining 5-0 and she loved it all.

Now TB and I have gotten some more breathable chairs in hopes that will keep the sweat down next weekend….that and hopefully temps below the 100’s.

Family fun and humidity

Posted on July 22, 2010. Filed under: Capture the moment, Circle of Friends, The places we have been | Tags: , , , , , , , |

A long weekend with family in Indy. 4 little ones ages 5 and under. Lots of giggles, a little whining, and tons of fun. Splash in HIGH humidity and bugs, which in the words of MB: “I know why people move to AZ, so they don’t have bug bites” reminded us that 110 degrees isn’t that bad if the humidity is low.

We spent majority of the weekend poolside at TB’s parents house. Unlike our pool they have a slide and a diving board. MB with her running splits & long jumps and TB doing flips. The favorite was the slide. For the first day it was just normal sliding. The 2nd day brought all different kind of combos. Forwards, backwards, on your stomach, on your back. Then the “big trick” was coming off the slide onto the boogie board and staying up. After lots of lots of practice and being told that I didn’t hold the board right (TB needed to hold the board) she had it mastered and could come down the slide, right to the boogie board and glide across the pool. What fun memories. I  know we are going to hear begging for a slide at our house soon. (wish I could post the video!)

We also had some of TB’s old friends join us with their kids at the pool for a BBQ and more pool time. Water guns were the toy of choice, for the big kids and the little kids!

Outside of the pool the kids played non-stop. I caught the girls practicing cheers in the gym. MB teaching lil Sis “up-up, down-down” with the pom-pom’s. The boys took MB for a ride around the yard in their Caddy. Enjoying summer nights…seeing fireflies. Setting off some pretty impressive fireworks.

We had a family dinner which was full of really good eats. TB’s sister-in-law makes some really good coney sauce. I say this as someone who doesn’t like coney’s but loved her sauce!!! I am waiting for the artichoke dip recipe too- another WOW. Bellies stuffed and the kids are quiet. I go upstairs to check on them and MB says “Mommy, we have been playing a really long time with no arguing, isn’t that great?”. Yes it is and I am running back downstairs quickly so as not to ruin the quiet :).

The visit was short…but one of those that fills your heart and soul with happiness and recharges you for life ahead! Even if I still feel sticky thinking about the humidity!
