Tays last home soccer game on Tuesday

For the last home soccer game of the season the girls always do something special for all of the senior girls, this being their offical home game and all.

So with the stands decorated to a tee -- posters everywhere -- balloons -- tulle in yellow and green, and very nice soccerball die cuts with senior night 2008 everywhere, Each of the underclassmen (ladies) bring a small gift for each of the seniors, they wrap them and write a short letter to them and place them in a large gift bag, each of the seniors is presented with the bag, just to let them know hoe much they will be missed and how much they appreciate all they have done for the tem over the past 4 years. Its something to see.

Taylor wanted something different for them, so we looked and looked, and came up with this cute water bottle filled with candy, We stamped each seniors name on the bottle with staz-on, cute huh, we thought this is something they can use later and always remember the team!

Last home Soccer game - also Senior night

Sorry for the delay in posting, but our new fancy pants laptops have an anti virus that has been treating our internet/wireless modem as a virus -- who knew?

So we have been internet-less for the past week and a half or so, wow so many emails I feel loved -- I promise I will get to each and everyone asap!

The end of the season is here (insert sad mom face here) and were back to a slow and peaceful household, well until indoor soccer starts for Kenny, and Spring Soccer at the High School for Cody, and oh, I think Tay just decided she is going out for fast pitch (thats a new one) aaaaahhhh ... joking I love the fast pace and I love to cheer the kids on at their games. So for the holidays it will be a nice and much needed break.

Schilter Family Farm 2008

What a beautiful sunny day it was today, and it was lucky planning on our part, for the past 2 years it has been super nice outside when we have made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch.

This is the corn maze this year at the Schilter Family Farm, We had a blast, We started out on the Hay Ride to the Maze, and then we spent a few hours playing in the maze,
Each year they do a different theme, and this year it was about the Elections, If you look close at the maze you will see the Republican and the Democratic Symbols in the middle of the U.S.A. pretty cool huh.

We love to spend a Sunday with the whole family and pick our pumpkins, Get lost in the corn maze, and have special once a year treats, this year Ken, Cody & Taylor all had fresh Apple pie, and Kenny had fresh cotton candy, and I was a good girl and had a bottle of water. (arnt you proud of me)

If you have never had a chance to go and visit the farm, you should, It is so worth the trip to the Nisqually valley, not only is it beautiful, but there is so much to do there for kids of all ages. Kids hay maze, pony rides, corn cannon, pumpkin bowling, hay bale climbing and so much more.

Last Football game of the season and the end of the season party

This is Kenny proudly holding his Football trophy tonight after a great 19 to 7 win over the Curtis Vikings - They killed us the first time we met (27-0) and today we redeemed ourselves-

At the team party, one of the coaches made sure to tell each of the kids that each of their trophies said M.V.P. He wanted them to know that each was an MVP - why .... the line holds back the defense so the kids can run the ball and hopefully score, and the offense to prevent the score and so on and so on ... Football is THEE team sport and without each other none of them could be a sucessful team.
I was very proud of what Kenny took away from football, not only how to play the game, but to sucessfully learn to communicate with his peers to reach a common goal or touchdown in this case. he learned teamwork. I am proud of him!

Pray for Jinx's safe return

Our kitty jinx followed the kids to the bus stop early this morning and was hit by a car. Before the kids could get to him he hurried into the woords. They were late for school and with dad looked for hours and could not find him anywhere.

The lady in the car did stop and tried to find him as well, she said she didnt hear a "hit noise" so we are praying that he was scared and ran into the woods to hide.

We ♥ our kitty so much and have cried out all the tears we own, please say a prayer for his safe return.

Minnow Fish bowl

Saturdays game was like a fish bowl repeat - Kennys Tides team beat the Seahawks team 27-0
I was so happy for our boys, they always play so HARD and just fall short every time - So heartbreaking, But not today - They were the winners.

And, now for the sad part, the Seahawks team, who lost, is my friend Lori's sons team. and I felt just like when Kennys team loses. They played so good, I have faith that they will win their next game too!

Woke up to a little payback???? mailbox destroyed!

We had a breakfast date with some friends of ours this morning, and when they got to the house to pick us up, they found this in our driveway ....

Yes this is our mailbox, inside out, and the fron and the back are no where to be found! Someone about 3:30 this morning put some kind of a bomb in our mailbox and man, let me tell you, I woke up, but I wasnt sure what the huge bang was, But guess I do now!

Do you think that these kids know its a class A felony to tamper with a US Postal box??? Hope I dont find out who they are...............

(good thing I needed a new one, it was leaky)
