Baby Mania

Poor Mama Mel

Six girls lined up and ready to hold her baby. Mel will be glad when Ina's baby is born as it will take a bit of attention off of her. Kaia is already saying, "Pretty soon I will hold the baby in Ina's belly." Pretty soon as in about 4 months! Assuming the new parents will even be comfortable with Kaia holding their precious bundle!

Mama's Little Helper

We get so much work done around here.

Don't you wish you had one of these to "help" you pack! Daddy just can't understand why the house looks so bad when we stay home all day working! Any ideas to help me enlighten him? Feel free to share.

Mismatch And Crazy Hair Day

She outdid herself again this year!

I had fun making her hair crazy. It's hard to convey just how crazy it was with a photo. She was actually a little nervous about getting on the bus this year. Her brother? Two different colored socks just isn't photo worthy!

Soccer 2011

I think this was Ayla's favorite part of soccer, sitting on the sidelines. I'm not entirely sure she'll want to do it again next year.

Kaia with the best seat, on grandpa's shoulders.

Next year will be his last year with community ed. soccer. After that is the travelling team which means more practices and travelling. It really bugs me how early kids are hyper-focusing on a sport these days. Parents complain about how busy they are, but they seem to forget that they do have a choice in the matter. So far we've made the very unpopular decision to keep our kids mostly unscheduled ~ just not sure how long we'll keep that up........Anyway, didn't mean to turn this into a rant, but while we're on topic how do you feel about kids and sports?
