Officially a Soccer Mom

Katelyn and Taylor are both playing soccer this Spring at the city recreation center.

They are having a blast! It started as a way for Zack to spend sometime with the kids while I was home with the baby but became more of my time with the kids as most practices and games are during the week when Zack is working. He still sneaks off to see a couple minutes of them playing when he can! Katelyn is in the 1st and 2nd grade group which focus on learning a few of the different positions. She really has gotten into the game rather than standing off back like she did with basketball. Which we are very excited about! Taylor is in the coed kindergarten group who basically run around and chase the ball. It is so fun to watch them all enjoying themselves. I am glad to be a "soccer mom" as long as my kids are having fun. Isn't that what sports are all about?

The kids are starting to relax a bit with all the changes going on. It is fun to see how much they love their new baby Matthew! He is such a wonderful addition to our family. He thoroughly enjoys their attention which can become quite a bit! William and Joshua are very protective of their baby. Of course they are okay with picking on him but if one of the others get a little too close...look out! Matthew is really starting to respond to each one of us and smiles when we talk to him. I included a picture of William and Joshua being silly. Just a little FYI: If you click on the collages they will get bigger.

I did a little "photo shoot" with Matthew on the couch after I fed him; he wasn't all that interested! If he is awake and I am around, he would much rather be eating! I am his "fridge." When we went up to Salt Lake I stopped over at the Quilted Bear with Stephanie and got this cute vinyl sign which is above my laundry closet.
