Saturday update


I love, love, love this. Having kids old enough for sports. This is worth getting up early on Saturday mornings! Ethan is enjoying soccer so much this year...and really improving too! He scored 2 goals today!

Poor Simon is dying to play too, and honestly, he is almost as good as Ethan (maybe better). I don't think they have 2 year old leagues, but he wishes....

Dave let him sit on the bench for part of the game today. :)

I haven't posted much since our trip, but things are good. We're trying to do school a few times a week (I'm trying, Ethan is begging :), and so far, so good. Ethan is reading the first level Bob Books pretty well. There are a few books with 6 and 7 word sentences, and he always worries that they are too long for him to read...but he can sound them out every time. I am just LOVING that he is learning to read and is so excited about it!

Great job E!
So, are they kicking around a basketball?
I love that Si wants to play too, are there any other younger kids that come and watch too that he could play with?

No, that's a soccer ball...just a weird color, I guess. :)

Thanks so much for all your prayers for Zeke and our family! You really don't know how much it means to me. I also appreciate your words of encouragement. Soccer is so fun...Bryson is just now getting into it and it's really fun to watch!
