Tides at Quest Field today



















What more can you ask for, family, friends, a beautiful day and the smile on my sons face was worth it all! we lost again but he played awesome!

Kennys game PYF Tides vs. PYF Tides (in Tacoma? Hello?)


This is where Kennys game was Saturday.

This is Stadium High School, No its not Hogworts as my son said, Cute huh. And the school isnt bad either, beautiful but omg the stairs were a nightmare! so we had to walk along that long sidewalk, down the hill and then all the way down the GIANORMOUS concrete stadium stairs, Im so out of shape. WOW it was a work out for me!

It was a beautiful view, and I got a little sun.

And it was a sad game for Kenny, We lost to all of his friends from school, but worse yet, it was a beautiful day, so I told Kenny he didnt have to wear his Under armour, BIG MISTAKE, he hit the ground at a full sprint, was tripped, and managed to get himself a massive turf burn, knocked the wind out of him and even worse yet he has another game at 8:00 in the morning at Quest field in Seattle.

Ill keep you posted with the game in the morning, as his arm tonight it is pretty (VERY) swollen and no skin on the elbow about the size of an egg, OUCH Say a good luck prayer for Kenny to have a speedy recovery over night.

Dad the amazing -- The kids now have a regulation soccer goal





Dad bought the kids a regulation size soccer goal. And for those of you who have not been up and close to one recently, It is 8' X 24" thats huge! Thankfully we have a very large back yard, and the kids have been very lucky to have so much to do literally right in our own backyard.
Dads a hero! (he loves to spoil them)

Sweetwater street winner # 5


Im so excited, I enter alot of fun "scrapbook" contests and ran across this super cute site when I was online looking for my favorite papers ever (sweet water) and entered a week long contest and on the last and final day I won!

Wahoo!!! I won a tote bage and a pillow, i just placed my order tonight and am looking forward to my prizes very soon!
And so today was another mad crazy run every where day. Kenny had a 9:00 football game in clover park, which as you all know means 8:00 dressed on the field, oh and did I mention that dad took him today so I could get ready for work, Well about 30 minutes after they left, my DH called and said that Kenny left his football shoulder pads and game jerseys at home, so a mad dash to Clover park followed, and just in time, only for the Tides to loose to Graham Eagles 20 to 0 (ouch) and then I was off to work at the shop where I had my monthly card class to teach, we were very busy and had a super fun day, after work I was off to Taylors JV Soccer game, which they lost 0-1 in the last 20 seconds of the game, (ouch again) and now Im home in bed Sick! (super yuck) and where should I be????
At my godsons 3rd birthday party, but Im sick, cant breathe, cant hear out one ear and didn't think my sister would appreciate me sicking everyone up! So happy 3rd Birthday my sweet little ASH!!! We love you!

September 18th

Tonight is a rare night for me. Its 750 p.m. and I am home alone catching up on recorded shows, answering emails, and enjoying some quiet me time. I can't even remember the lat time I did this.

Taylor is off to Yelm for Soccer, she called all excited her team P.H.S. won 4-0 and she was excited to get her homework done while the Varsity girls were playing, they share a bus to and from games, so I was glad to hear she was working hard.

Cody is off in the Harbor at the skate park longboarding, and hanging out with friends, and then he offered to go to the high school and pick up his little brother who is there for Football practice, He is a good older brother, he loves to watch him practice, and then give him pointers. They make a good team.

and my DH is working very late tonight (sad:( face)

So Im left to fend for myself. Just me and my computer and the good ol DVR


Well Im looking forward to tommorrow, my friend Melinda is going to stop by the shop and visit me, so Im glad to be seeing her.

Well this is what we like to call Kenny and Golaith-

Goliath is number 81 (the monster 10 year old who is 5' 11") and my son the little one taking him on!!! He did awesome, it took 3 or 4 guys to bring him down, we did it, but he was a monster!

















Mom giving Kenny a pep talk at half time

Kennys 1st Football game

This was a picture that another mom took of Kenny and one of his coaches giving Kenny a pep talk. Aso you can see Kenny is the only one without a full uniform on.

We joined the team late and so Kenny had to have a full 3 days of practice before he could hit (with pads on) So as of today Kenny is geared up and spent the night throwing the ball with dad. He is so ready to go he can hardly stand it!

I cant wait to see how he does ... GO TIDES .... (shhhh... dont tell my other two who are Hawks)

First Day of School


Well, Today was the first day of school and this is the picture that dad took while Kenny was eating breakfast.

Since my you all know my job calls for me to miss all of the "First Days of School" Ken was his usual wonderful self and missed half of his work day to make sure all of the kids got off to school.
Cody is a Junior this year, and Taylor a Sophomore and Kenny a 5th grader. Can you believe this will be the last year that I have a child in elementary school. Im SOOOO sad. They are all growing up way too fast.

PLEASE .... Be sure to always kiss them good bye, Tell them you love them, and CHERISH all of the little moments, as I am learning they seem more now than ever to be the BIG ones.
I wish you all all a wonderful school year, and a wonderful days :)
