The beginning of Soccer Mom

I am offically a soccer mom. This is the first of many years my boys will be playing soccer. I have a feeling that in a few years I will be camping out on Saturday for AYSO games. But that's fine because I love it. It's so much fun watching and cheering on Brendan. It's amazing how much he has improved already this season, and he has had only 4 games. I must say that Brendan does have an awesome coach.

Doggie Barber Shop

They are at it again....yesterday while I was taking a short nap, Mike caught Brendan and Austin giving the dog a haircut with my good scissors that I use for cutting fabrics. Of course when Mike confronted Brendan about it, Brendan quickly hide the scissor behind his back and acted like nothing was going on. I was shocked that the dog let them do it....but at least they moved on to the dog instead of each other.

So who's fault is it????

That is the question I had to ask this morning after I found 1 and 1/2 bags of double stuffed oreos gone. I was getting ready for a purse party I have tonight when I stepped into the kitchen and noticed that there was a empty package of oreos on the counter. Now I didn't remember seeing that earlier this morning, but I thought maybe Mike had eaten some after I went to bed last night. Although it's not like him to eat that many (1/2 package) but I thought who knows......

Then I checked the freezer, that's were we keep our oreos and there was only one package left in there instead of two...I bought 3 total because they were on sale last week. That made me go investigate into the matter more. I found three boys either eating oreos, hiding oreos, or evidence of oreos on their mouths.

Of course when I asked who got the oreos out of thr freezer in the first place no one would fess up. Why do my kids have to make it so diffcult by using that "I don't know" phrase. Life would be so much easier for me, as a parent, if I didn't have to spend so much time figuring out who's fault it was. It would also be easier on them...I would only have to spank one kid instead of all three.

I never really got a straight answer, but through process of elimination I think it was Austin aka Naughty Nick.

What the future will bring....

The other day, out of the blue Mike asked me "Do you ever wonder who Brendan's friends will be in high school? Do you think they will be the same as they are now?"

My response was "I just hope he's making friends now, much less worrying about who will be his friends in high school."

Over the past few days, the Mike's question keeps going over and over in my mind. Are Brendan's friends going to be the same as they are now??? How are his friends going to affect Brendan as he goes up??? Those are just a couple of the questions that keeps coming back to me. But then I need to remember that it's out of my hands, I need to have faith that God will lead his life down the right path.

Guest Blogger - Brendan

(This story is written as Brendan told me - not correct grammar at all, sorry)

Hi, I'm Brendan and I wanted to tell you about a fishing trip I took with my dad in August.

One day, my daddy got me up really early when it was still dark outside. I got changed, we had breakfast and got into daddy's truck. After we got into daddy's truck, we drove and drove and drove and daddy's had to go into the store to get something in case it was going to rain - daddy's left me in the truck because I was kinda sleepy. Then we got there and parked. We found a guy who had a lifejacket for me. then we got on the boat, and we waited and talked until two more guys came, they didn't take any kids though. Next we drove for a little while and waited for fish. Daddy caught a fish before I did.

It was a long time before I caught a fish. Some guy held the fishing pole while I reeled the fish in. It was almost as tall as I am. There was a guy who had a camera and he took my picture.

While all the other guys were catching fishes and one eel, I ate some donuts. I don't remember how many donuts I ate - maybe 4 or 5.

When we were done fishing we had to wash and cut the skin off the fish. After that it was time to go. On the way home we stopped for lunch.

Below are some of the pictures from the fishing trip.
