A sweet kid

On Friday it was raining pretty hard, T came down stairs and asked me for my car keys.  He wanted them so he could go out to the van and get my umbrella and bring it in so I wouldn't get wet.  He also started the van for me since it was "kind of nippy" in the van.  I think he's a keeper!

Weekends recap

Last weekend, the kids got to go to our small airport here and go on a 30 minute flight.  The pilots volunteer once a year to take kids up to get them interested in flying.  The kids, needless to say really enjoyed it.  :o)

We then went and played tennis and then grilled out and had dinner on our deck.

This weekend, we celebrated Z's birthday, we got him a new bike.  His birthday dinner was:  ravioli, cheesesticks, french bread, peas, strawberries, and chocolate cherry cheesecake.  He was quite happy with his choices.  :o)  He also got a new camera, clothers, a remote control care and a gadget that shoots an air plane into the air.

I know my blog has become very neglected.  At some point, life may slow down enough that I can think of posts again!  The kids are enjoying soccer.  Emily's team is undefeated.  The others are still enjoying soccer in spite of losses.

Work is going really well, but incredibly busy.  I don't know if I'll ever be caught up.  I had a conversation with a co-worker about how my dream job when I retire from nursing will be to have that job of a runner or transport person.  You get your exercise, and every day is a brand new day, nothing left over from the day, week, month before!  I feel very blessed to work with such great people, though.  They are truly a great bunch of hard working people.

Soccer Mom

The kids are back from Illinois after a month away.  I am happy to say that children and grandparents all survived and still claim each other as relatives!!!

Three of them are now in soccer, so I suppose I am officially soccer mom!  I have to say, it is going to be a busy 6 weeks.  We have soccer at least Monday through Thursday.  "E" and "Z" have something going on at the same time in different locations almost every Tuesday and Thursday.  I guess it's a good thing we have two cars and can each take a different kid somewhere.  Oh, yeah, just remembered, "K" and "E" both have soccer on Monday nights too!  Crazy!!!
