Yup, those are their soccer team names! Haha, I guess when you leave it to 4 & 5 year olds to decide, they come up with some pretty exciting names:)
This is both Bubba Love & Buddy Boy's first year playing soccer. They have both been looking forward to it all summer and now that it is here they can't hardly contain themselves.
Even though they are on completely different teams, they both ended up purple! #3 & #4.
The kids had their first games this past weekend and it was entertaining.
Bubba Love kind of understood what she was suppose to do, but was having a hard time keeping up with they slightly older/bigger kids. She also was more concerned about snack time then game time!
Buddy Boy had absolutely no idea what was going on and he spent most of game time either chasing the bigger kids or picking grass. Daddy and I tried to encourage him to try to kick the ball, and he did!! Aww, the look on his face... he was SO proud of himself.
After seeing their performance, Daddy decided we should probably practice at home a little bit more:)
Bubba Love's Game:
Bubba Love started kindergarten almost two weeks ago!
She was so excited to be starting school. She picked out her clothes the night before and told me exactly what she wanted me to pack for lunch. She got up in morning and she could not stop talking about how she was going to be learning to read and write and how she was going to make new friends.

We had our 6 week visit with the midwives this week!
I can't believe it's been six weeks already since little Squeak was born. It seems like just yesterday that I was hugely pregnant and ready to pop:)
He is growing so much and so fast!
He weighed in at 10lbs 8oz.
He is beginning to smile and coo.
He sleeps great at night (and so do I!)
He loves to be in the Ergo.
He had his first cold last week:(
He is very easy going and so sweet.
I wish I could slow down time and enjoy every second of him. But the reality is, he has three older siblings that are keeping me busy and unfortunately he gets the short end of the stick. Hopefully I will get more time to enjoy him once the big kids are in school. For now, I get my snuggle time at night:)
This week is of official last week of calm!
It's also the last week of life as we have known if for the last 5 years.
Bubba Love starts kindergarten next Thursday!
I can't believe this day has finally come. It is bittersweet. I am so excited for her and I know she will LOVE it and thrive... but she has been home with me for five years and I am going to miss her SO much. She will be in all day Kinder, which is going to be an adjustment but will be nice for me to have a little longer break during the day:)
She went back to school clothes shopping with her Great Aunt last weekend and we have all her supplies ready. Just a few more days and she will be spreading her little wings and leaving the nest!
Also, in September, Buddy Boy will be in preschool three days a week!
This is going to be an even bigger deal then Bubba going to school because Buddy Boy has NEVER been in any type of school. He has never been away from me unless he has been with another family member. He is so ready and excited though! I am excited to have 3 hours 3 days a week with just the two littles:)
The two big kids are also starting 4H, soccer, and gymnastics!
They are busy little kiddos:)
I can't believe we are entering into"big kid" land!
