Like many of you I am a soccer mom. This year we only have two in soccer. Luckily our practices are at the fair grounds or the park. The fair grounds has playground equipment and duck ponds. So the other kids have much to do while they are waiting. One day while Ashtyn was practicing the kids and I went to feed the ducks and watch Weston roller blade. The picture of Weston blading down the bridge wasn't something I thought would be a good idea. Then when I wasn't paying attention he took Ella in his arms and went down. BOYS! The kids had fun feeding the ducks and being together. I really need to get some pictures of Ashtyn too.

Ashtyn has been helping me try to get going on this blog. When I was finished posting some pictures we realized there wasn't much of her. So here she is playing soccer. Her team is called the Stikers and are such a fun girl color, GREY. The coach tried to come up with some silver, sparkly hair bows but didn't find much. Any ideas?
The other picture is of her on the zip line at the reunion. The zip line is tied to a high tree up on the mountain an then to a lower tree at the bottom. The kids love it. So here is my cute red head Ashtyn.

Okay I have a confession. I am a cookie addict. I am addicted to warm homemade cookies. I realized this was a problem years ago. Of course we all bake cookies now and again but my obsession is BIGGER then that. I bake at least once a week. And I am usually the only one who eats a couple dozen. I have taken Chips a'hoy chocolate chip cookies and homemade cookies on trips and the store bought one are gone in a flash leaving me to have to eat the homemade ones all by myself. The kids even ask me if I will buy cookies for thier lunch. Well something big happened this week. Trett's kindergarten class was working on the letter C and he was suppose to bring something that started with the letter C. We talked about a few words and the word cookie came up. He liked that idea and I thought for sure I would be running to the store to buy him some. Then the greatest thing happened he asked me if I would bake him some COOKIES! Will I bake him some cookies??
Along with all the rain came a swamp in my back yard. The kids love the mud and LOTS and LOTS of TADPOLES. The tadpoles are about marble size. The kids have gathered many of them and put them in buckets. I am not sure what they plan to do with them. Last year I can remember when they had a few six gallon buckets full of them. Gotta LOVE that smell.
