duck, duck....goose!



The day i've been waiting for has finally arrived! Tim took both boys duckhunting together for the first time this past weekend......while the girls headed to the mall :) Dylan had a blast sitting on a bucket blowing his goose call and saying "dad, there goes one!" Austin enjoyed it for the first 45 minutes, and then got a little bored.....but everytime a duck flew over he would perk up again, blow his call, and point his cap gun in the air.

stella's crawling

stella's 8 months old and crawling..... where has the time gone? It makes me smile to watch her crawl, and see that look of glee on her face when she reaches her destination-- it just makes me sad how quickly time flies by! it almost makes me want to have another (gasp!)

i must say, this crawling thing with 3 older siblings is interesting. our first 3 were born pretty close to each other, so when dylan was a baby the others were 2 and 3. they did not play with little legos yet, or tiny beads, or google eyes, or make paperclip necklaces etc. (can you guess all of the things i've fished out of stellas mouth today? :)

anyhow here's a little video mom. dana, do you remember this sweet little outfit?

random soccer, static and stella

fall soccer season is officially done......sigh. what beautiful weather we have had! i have such mixed emotions about soccer. it's such great exercise, and the kids love running around playing with their friends. it's also fun to watch them grow and learn teamwork ..... however it makes for more busyness right when you're trying to figure out the school thing again. don't get me wrong, i'm not trying to complain- i realize i only have 2 kids playing .....i'm just happy it's done until spring!


austin loved to play "right defender"
