We are really enjoying soccer. Candy is having fun and scoring goals. She enjoys her friends and they have a team song.
Ice Cream is our defense guy. He loves to make sure no one scores a goal against them. He really enjoys that position. He does not love being up front and knows that is not his strong position. Ice Cream's coach played defense in college and encourages him. Most 8 year old boys on his team want to score goals and tend to tease him that he is not scoring. He tried being the goalie today and did not like it. He was really mad at himself when he did let a goal in.
Milk Dud loves to watch and thinks he should be playing as well.
We were able to head to the lake a day early to spend some fun days with my cousins and aunts and uncles. We all gathered for my Aunt and Uncles 50th Anniversary. It was fun to be with everyone but the weather was cool for June. We had about 50 people the night before for supper and since it was so cool we were all inside the cabin.
They had a great party and their kids did a great job putting on a program.
We wish them many happy years.
Below is some cousin fun.
Notice Ice Cream in his swim suit while everyone else is in pants and sweatshirts!!
He wanted to get in and in he did!!
It was cool but he loves the water!
Candy and my cousin's 4 year old were asked to wear the original flower girl dresses. We had them try the dresses on the day before and they just loved parading and twirling around.
As you can see they are great at posing for us.
Congrats to a wonderful family!
All of the nieces and nephews that were able to attend.
Our boys were off that day enjoying our nephews 1st birthday.
Happy Birthday "O"!!
Thanks Auntie for getting matching dresses for the girls to wear!
Candy loves her dress.
My Aunt and Uncle had many foster kids and they grew up with their own 3 children.
They ended up having 5 weddings in 11 months!! The little girls thought it was fun to pretend to be brides with the props after the party!
I was lucky enough to help in VBS again this year. Candy was able to go with a bunch of neighbor friends to our church. Milk Dud gets to go to the sibling room while I helped out. Below you will see a picture of Milk Dud looking out the window at us on the playground.
Candy had a great week. She made a few new friends and enjoyed going everyday.
