It's Official.

"Life isn't measured in the breaths you take, but in the moments that take your breath away."

  1. I am a soccer mom. And I officially take back ever saying I was ready for both of my kids to be involved in sports! You see, we started soccer this month. At first it wasn't too bad. Tuesday and Thursday practice at 6:30 for BOTH boys. Alright. Not too bad. But then we got the soccer schedules. And they play just about every game at the same time. I guess it's good. It's just splitting up my time when at times I would much rather spend time with both! But hey - - soccer is going great and they both love it. We are keeping up with practice twice a week, so things, like usual are busy around here.

  2. Whatever is in the air is KILLING me and slowly at that. I've become best friends with several boxes of tissues and they don't leave my sight.

  3. In light of everything that happens, I've received several "words of wisdom" as you can see at the top of this post. And it's why we always try to make things count for the boys. So sure, 2 weekends ago was our first soccer game but the weather was beautiful! We jumped at the opportunity to take the boys camping on Saturday night. Sure it was a lot of work for just one night but hearing the boys teachers tell me how much they talked about that trip was worth it. Too bad I'm so under the weather or we'd go again this weekend.

  4. We have our Halloween costumes. Yes.......I am on top of things. You just have to LOVE the "Second Chance" store where you can score Darth Vader for $1.50. Care to take a gamble at who's Darth Vader & who's a clone trooper?

and I'll close with a few pictures from soccer and our camping trip:

The boys favorite part of camping - - the fire! And this time they made it!
