The Sports Craze Begins....

Trevor had his very first soccer practice this week and I thought to myself.....there will be no turning back now!! He loves to be active and to meet new friends!! He has the BIGGEST smile the entire time and I feel good knowing he's getting all of that energy out!!!! He is also going to be starting swimming in two weeks and baseball in two weeks as well!!! WOW!! I have looked forward to watching him in sports since the Dr. said "It's a Boy"!! Here we are....can't wait!

One big change in our house is that Sydney is taking a break from Cheerleading :(...Cheer has been a big part of our lives for the past two years. 4-6 hour weekly practices and weekends full of competition. I love the PS family and the entire organization. PS was a very positive experience and I'm so glad she excelled at it and enjoyed it. Syd wants to try some other things and I can't say that I blame her. She is so small and I will never have these years back....these are the sweet years and it might be selfish to say but I want her home with me and not at practices all week....there are many years ahead for that!! She is going to start horseback lessons and swimming in the next few weeks so I can't wait to see her experience something she's been begging to do since she could say "horse". All of these other extracurriculars aren't near as time consuming but she will have a blast all the same.

Summertime is here!!!

AHHHH!!! 4 more days of school for the kiddos!! Always bittersweet for me!! I do like a schedule and I always miss all of the school activities! I always find it challenging to find things for Trevor Sydney and Em to do all summer. Fighting has also become an issue as they get do people deal with this...send me the ear plug brand asap!

I am excited for sleeping in and not having to rush out anywhere....ready for swimming, watermelon, movie nights, sunscreen, grilling out, boat, tubing, fishing, scrapbooking (I think I am up to Thanksgiving 2007), lots of friends over and just relaxing!!!

Todd and I had date night last night and went downtown for dinner!! We sat on the patio listened to live music and had the BEST time!!!!!! It was long overdue! We absolutely love downtown McKinney.....I go down there any chance I get!!!
