This weekend we were at the lake (like most weekends, luckily!). The kids were a little restless because it wasn't warm enough to swim so Papa suggested a game of soccer to C. He took to it right away!
Papa and C were playing against each other to start. Then she came along...
to be the coach. C then said, "Well, she's a pretty bossy coach, ya know." She had no contest with that, which was hilarious!
Not to be left out, she soon joined the game with Papa and Daddy at the goals.
Yes, that is the goal. The chair. They had to get the ball under the chair. Not so big. It made for an exciting game!
C often thought it was a wrestling match, tackling his sister. But having been with him all her life, she's used to it!
Daddy and A getting their game face on, ready to face C and Papa...
The game continued into the evening, past the sunset behind the clouds.
C got ready for one last chance at a goal to win the game for he and Papa, but...the game stayed tied at 3-3. I'm sure this is not the last time we will be seeing a game of soccer at the lake. Perhaps a new favorite activity?!
What do you say about yourself? Well, I guess I'm a wife, mommy and teacher. I am blessed with a wonderful family-a husband and twin 10 year olds. I can't ask for much more than that. I love ice cream and any other dessert that has chocolate in it. Is it possible to have too much sugar in one day? I have been known to have ice cream for dinner, but don't tell my kids that! I've been blogging for about 7 years and love it. It is the perfect way to keep track of my family's happenings for me, J and the kids.
Husband, Daddy, Cook, Jungle Gym...let's see what else can I come up with? These are just of the few names J has in our family. He does everything and anything! I couldn't ask to have anyone other than him in my life. Married for 15 years, together since high school-we've been through a lot! He is a wonderful daddy to our twins and loves them so very much. They are utterly in awe of him as am I, every day.
A is our little peanut of a girl. She is full of spunk and personality. She is a little Mommy in her 10 year old self, always taking care and keeping track of her twin brother, C. Her favorite thing to do dance in her room with her door closed. She has to keep that brother out somehow! Her current favorite family game is Uno, which she is very good at! She's an artist in training, loves to ride her two-wheel bike and is a great helper around the house. She loves school, swimming, reading books, eating spaghetti and anything that's chocolate. Hmmm...who's daughter do you think she is?
C is our boy...a "boy-boy" if you know what I mean. At the current moment in his 10-year-old self, he plays catch with anyone around, with whatever ball is in season! He loves swimming, riding bikes and wrestling Daddy. He is our adventurous eater and will try anything we give him...though he doesn't always like it, but at least he tries! We love him so much and couldn't imagine life without him!
