Soccer Season

Holly is enjoying soccer season! It is a busy time of year with moving into school full time, activities and soccer. However, she is really enjoying it and coming a lot further with her skills. She is not a very aggressive player so that holds her back some, but she is working on it. Getting her not afraid to get in on the ball is tough but she is slowly building up that confidence and courage to do it.

Here are some shots from her last game!

Holly's Fair Entries

We visited the fair this past weekend and finally had a chance to see Holly's fair entries. She was thrilled to look for them, in fact it was the VERY first thing we did when we got into the fair - headed straight for the Pavilion to search them out.

Holly did great! She received two first place ribbons and a second place ribbon. She is over the moon!

Love These Moments

As Hudson is growing up you can find the kids playing together more often. I love how every few days there is a new focus in my living room... right now trains! A week or so ago I had a large farm living in my living room and music instruments grazed every surface a few days before that.

Trains right now are a fun one as Hudson is really loving 'choo-choos'. We don't do much TV however one day Holly was watching a Thomas show and Hudson finally noticed the television (never happens)... he became very excited over the 'choo-choos' on TV. So, off went the TV and out came the trains. The living room has been filled since with hours of train play. I love that Hudson is enjoying it and Holly is not too old for it. They play well together over trains. I honestly love those moments!!!

Cattle Parade

We were able to enjoy the tradition of the Puyallup Fair's Cattle Parade again this year -- making it year 4 for Holly and year 2 for Hudson! The kids had a great time. Holly enjoys the cattle drive that starts the parade... which appeared to be smaller this year. Last year they had one take his own journey into a nearby Cheveron Mini-Mart Gas Station so this year they seem to have run fewer and had more on hand to guide them than ever before. Hudson loved them - he was very excited! In fact, I'd say Hudson love it all.. the horses, the tractors, the bands... all!!! It was a great morning - we look forward to next year too!

Labor Day Weekend

 Labor Day weekend was filled with sweet beautiful sunshine so we enjoyed several hours in the sun. We spent the weekend out visiting Grandpa Hawk and the kids enjoyed the water. They played in the yard with a small pool, a sprinkler and the slip and slide. We also visited the local lake in which the kids enjoyed the water. It was relaxing, summery and fun... a great way to enjoy the weekend!
