Soccer soccer everywhere!

Two Mondays ago Bryce started Soccer. He was so excited to be going to Soccer for him and not Noah. We got there and got all set up, he was running around kicking the ball, making friends and taking his water breaks. It was so freaking cute! Then Coach Matt comes out and starts some fun games for the kids and parents. With the kids only being 3 parent participation is required. I know Coach Matt from all of Noah's classes at Seacoast United so I wasn't too worried about having to run around with Bryce. That was until they played a form of freeze tag and Coach Matt went to tag Bryce......the poor kid took off screaming crying with a look of terror in his eyes. By the time he got to me he was shaking he was so scared. So the rest of the practice I ended up having to hold his hand and tell him it was okay. Not really how I thought it would end up but he still said he had fun. I got some cute pictures too, my camera doesn't work that well indoors....not sure why probably operator error. We missed last week due to Bryce having a cold which made his Asthma flare up and since I don't have a rescue inhaler for him yet we stayed home. Plus with all the sick kids from the week before I will admit that I was scared about what could be flying around there.

This coming Saturday is Noah's last game with HYA and is also the start of his Seacoast United league. One game starts at 8am and one at 8:30am, still working on that. We are really excited for Seacoast United to start again. Noah has always played there but this will be the 1st time he is old enough to actually join a team. His old team United from HYA picked up kids from 3 different teams to form another "United" team. We just found out last week that Noah would be playing cause the coach forgot to tell us that he signed Noah up. He said he just loves Noah and needed him to play. Noah is super excited cause his buddy Zack will be on the team with him and I think his other buddy Shawn is coming to play as well. This league runs 6 on 6 with a goalie and is all indoors. Indoors is better for Noah with his Asthma but his coach as gotten used to Noah needed his inhaler half way threw the game. Ben's a little shocked that his 5 year old is already starting "club" sports but is super excited for him to learn more.

Here are a few pictures of Bryce and Noah from last weeks Soccer events.

Halloween Party

Saturday was our Annual Kids Halloween Party. It was a perfect day for a Halloween Party, lots of wind and rain to set the scene. Everyone started showing up around 2ish and of course we were not really ready yet...opps. I still have no clue what time it ended but we all had a great time. With a bigger turn out then last year everyone had fun. The kids all seemed to have a great time with dancing, crafts, playing, showing off their costumes and of course breaking the pinata. We had more little ones then I thought so next year I need to plan a better craft for them to keep busy :). Here are some pictures of the days events. The only picture I got of Noah swinging at the pinata was a second too late but look at the faces of everyone in the back...1 hit and he bust the head off, it went flying into the wall and busted. Noah loved it!! I some how managed NOT to get a group picture of all the kids......maybe next year.

Trying to keep up....

Ever feel like you never have enough time to get everything done? Or your going, going, going and no matter what you get done that day your "list" never seems to shorten? Welcome to my world!!

October has been insane over here to say the least. Ben's work schedule has been very busy with little time at home. He spent a week in Washington and has seemed to be spending the rest at the station. He finally had the past 2 days completely off and to us (only 2 this month) YIPEE, it was great to have him home. I felt bad for taking Noah to school since Dad was home but he still went. Noah's Soccer is going great and the team is really coming together. So much that they are forming an indoor team this season at Seacoast United. I love that place but another 8 weeks of Saturday Soccer......we all know it will happen. He has been doing really well in school and his teachers have nothing but great things to say about him. His Halloween party is coming up in a few weeks and of course I will be there to help out and bake some goodies. Dad is going to try and get off for the parade at school as well. Bryce is doing great too. He started Soccer this past Monday and he loved it, for the most part. He cried once when the coach was chasing him (for a game) but other then that he was fine. It's parent participation at this age level so there I am 6 months along running and playing as well. Coach Matt is awesome and knows us already so its nice to have him there to help be Bryce's partner too. He has been sick a few times this month already, poor guy. I spend most the days cleaning, playing, entertaining, running around and trying to keep everything organized for the next day. By 6pm the kitchen is closed, boys are in jammies and close to being in bed. I should get stuff done while they are sleeping but I'm so tired I end up laying on the couch watching TV and falling asleep. Which is kinda nice :)

Our Kids Halloween party is this Saturday. Where did that sneak up on me from? The boys are super excited and so is everyone else. We have lots of spooky food, games and treats lined up for the kiddos. This year will be our best turn out ever and I feel totally unprepared for everyone. We have 15 kids that have RSVP with parents, 5 maybes, and a few I think will show without a call. So it will be busy here!

Baby girl is doing great and will be here before we know it. We had a doctor appt yesterday, heartbeat is 140 and she is growing just fine. I have 1 more 4 week appt left then its onto 2 weeks from there. Next appt will be "hopefully" the last of my tests I need and we will be scheduling the Cesarean date, WOW! We got her bedding in yesterday and I can't wait to set up the room for her. We figure if its set up by Christmas we are in good shape!

Lighthouse with Mom

While my Mom was here we took her to the Portland Maine Lighthouse. We packed a lunch and make a picnic out of it. I just love that place, its so pretty and quite up there. We all had a great time and it was a wonderful family afternoon. I only wish the trees had a little more color on the drive but all in time :)
