Spring of Soccer

Soccer has definitely taken over our house life this spring.  Gary coached JV for the high school, Mckenna played club soccer, Noah played Varsity high school soccer and played club soccer for an NC team.  Whew!

It has been fun and exhausting.  Gary is done.  Mckenna is done, but Noah's is still rolling on.  His high school team made it to the semi finals for state but his club team won state yesterday!  It was exciting and he was thrilled to be a part of it all.  On to Regionals in a few weeks!

During all the chaos I have somewhat burnt out.  Not of soccer or kids or... any one thing really.  Just from juggling it all and not having time to just get organized and feel like I am ever caught up.  Not taking the time to run and recharge.  I feel like I was trying to hard to hold on to moments as they were going by at the speed of light!

Yesterday as we drove back from NC as state champion, Noah and Ayden Jane went on one of their goofy spells.  They are so stinkin' funny together.  Noah gets AJ going and she will do anything to perform for Noah (when in the mood).  Kayla and I were laughing and at one point I nearly had to pull over because I was laughing so hard!

Noah had Ayden Jane telling us stories.  Just think about jokes that kindergarteners tell and how little sense they make.  Just string that same thought into a looooong story that just randomly includes things we drive by as we go.  Of course the more we laugh the more outrageous the stuff she comes up with.  Then comes the songs.  Noah gives her a topic and she either thinks of a song to sing with that topic or just makes one up...  All in all, great day.
