Some of My Favorite Pictures from September...

You found me!

Conner literally fell asleep while he was writing in his workbook!

Micah gives his bear some juice.

Love my puppy!

Mommy's boys

This looks like it could be something out of a horror movie! (Yes, we did brush his teeth when we got home!)

I'm not real sure what Micah was pointing at...

Daddy is the best!

This is Chicory, our dog

Cowboy Conner

Dr. Conner

Bret has been so excited that Conner is finally showing an interest in watching football this fall. Here they are watching their favorite team, the "Fightin' Texas Aggies."

Soccer Update

Conner played his third soccer game today. This is turning out to be a good experience. We are glad we're doing it! We figured out that if we just let Conner come sit with us and veg for a few minutes when he gets hot and tired, instead of making him stay on the bench (which none of the other kids stay on, either!), he is ready to go back out in a few minutes. This makes everyone much happier! Here's a few pics from the last couple of games:
Exercising before the game

That's Conner in the front. He scored a goal!

Popsicles after the game are always a treat!

Conner's First Soccer Game

For Conner's birthday this year, we signed him up for soccer. This is our first venture into the world of kid's team sports. We're very excited, but anxious, too. We'll just have to see if he likes it! We are playing with the YMCA - the most non-competitive organization we could find. They have a short 8 week season, and the games consist of a thirty minute practice immediately followed by a thirty minute game on Saturdays only. (Many of the other clubs around have mid-week practices and hour-long Saturday games. Ugh!) Here's how the first game went:

By the time practice was over, Conner was hot, tired, and ready to go home. "But I already played soccer. I don't want to play anymore!"

It wasn't too long before his friend, Brian, came to see him play for a few minutes. Sharing Brian's "hot chips" was much more exciting and worthwhile than playing soccer!

Yay! We finally convinced him to go out and give it a try. Here they are lining up for the kick.

Micah brought his own, "goccer ball" to play on the sidelines...

...but eventually Micah got hot and tired, too.

Good game, everyone! (We'll see how next week goes...!)

First Day of School

Okay, so these are not the traditional first day of school pictures, and they really aren't even all that good. But, they are the best we could do this morning! It was Mommy's first day of school, too, so our morning was a bit hectic and rushed. Amazingly, we all ended up having a great day, though.
