Labor Day Weekend

We went to Harrison over the weekend and we had a blast just playing at Dan's parents house and relaxing. Dan and I went canoeing with Dan's sister and brother and two of their friends. It was an interesting trip to say the least but we had fun despite the rapid water...EEEKK! Here are a few pics of Caleb in the swing and Ariel on the tractor.

It's Soccer Time!!

Caleb started soccer for the first time this season. Our schedule has gotten pretty full but we are still managing good family time each week and are eating at least 4 meals a week at our family table that was my only goal!!!

It has taken Caleb a little while to adjust to liking soccer. He kept saying that it was too hard and that the other kids kept taking the ball away from him. Dan has been trying to coach him through it though and he had his first game on Tuesday. He did rather well for being a 5 year old...there were lots of staring off in space moments, fiddling with his shirt, coming off the field while on the clock to talk to us, potty breaks, drinks of water...ya know the typical kid things. But he said that he had fun and wanted to go back. I think next game I will make him rest a while before the game, maybe that will make things a little easier for him!!

Dan had remembered this picture of when he played his first year of soccer. Is this not the cutest thing ever!?

dinner with my man

Week before last, Dan and I went to PF Chang's for dinner. It was so nice to get away for a few hours and have a good dinner with him. Caleb (our little photographer) took this picture of us before we left. Dan and I don't get many pictures together so it is nice to have an updated picture!

Lunch with Caleb at School

For some reason blogger won't let me move pictures around anymore?? Anyone know why?

Caleb and Malea...Caleb's friend from church that goes to the same school as him.

Dan and I had lunch with Caleb at school last Thursday while Ariel was at Ainsley's house for a play date. It was a great opportunity to see some of his friends and to meet a few of his teachers. He absolutely loved having us sit with him at the special table that they provide for the parents. It was also a great time for him to be introduced to the school lunches. I had previously been making his lunch everyday for school but once he found out that they serve a lot of his favorite food (hot dogs (on wheat bun), quesadillas, hamburgers, chicken nuggets, pepperoni pizza, etc.) he was actually excited about eating hot lunches at school. They also provide fruit and carrots with ranch (which he loves) and skim chocolate milk. It makes me very happy to see that he isn't so picky anymore, even though he does tend to get out of eating my meals in the evening still, just because I don't feed him the foods that he loves, like those stated above!!

Ariel is learning to ride a bike!
