Soccer Mom Is Back

Here we are back in full swing this spring.  A bigger ball, a new team, a new coach, and a new color to wear (finally - he was neon orange the last two years).  Landon is pumped!  He is loving everything about this team and he couldn't be happier.  They do play very well together and won both of their games.  Since these kids are older now (and some older than others), I have noticed that they play more aggressively.  I looked at Aaron and asked, "Are we watching soccer or rugby?"  It's rough.  I am excited to get my title of Soccer Mom back again.  I've missed it.  Another thing I have missed is watching Landon play. 

No worries, Landon came out unscathed.

Sam Peden on Easter Day

After all of the Easter excitement had come to a halt, Liam wanted to go to a park.  Aaron and I just looked at each other because we were so tired from getting up so early.  But, we went anyway.  We know our days with "little" Liam are numbered.  Landon just tags along.  Landon also likes to "torture" ducks by chasing them all over the place.  We'll chalk that up to being 14 and bored.

Forty-somethings shouldn't do this.  Just saying.

Happy Easter, From the Chocolate Monster and Egg Hunter!

Wow, it's hard to believe that it's already April.  I was a little worried about egg hunting outside this year since our weather has been more winter-ish than spring.  Hiding eggs in snow does sound a bit challenging and fun, but I was hoping we wouldn't have to.  Mother Nature gave us a good day, despite it being April Fool's. 

Just like our typical Easter morning, we get up and go through Easter baskets then go outside and hunt for eggs.  Landon was super tired so he wasn't really in the holiday spirit.  Liam is always game for some excitement.  Landon is more of the sweets kid, so he gets mostly candy.  Liam doesn't care for sweets, so he gets mostly toys.  They are pretty easy.  Happy Easter!
