All done...

Soccer ended on Saturday and it was such a great season. Miss S's team ended up #1 - they are the #1 team in the highest bracket for their age. They are an amazing team! Most of them have been playing together for 4-5 years and they all get along and encourage each other, it is really fun to watch.

It has been an eventful couple of months, busy and crazy. We had practice every Monday and Wednesday from 4-7:30 and then 2 games every Saturday. Mr. T survived a foot injury and is now feeling well again :) He had it rough for a while and couldn't even run, but he stuck it out and played wherever he could. He makes an awesome goalie! He finally got to let loose and run the last game and scored in the last 5 seconds of the last game. We were so happy for him!

It is always a bittersweet thing when soccer ends. I miss the friends we have on the team, they are great. But you know it is bad when you are excited to have a Saturday to clean the garage!

Bread and water...

Last Sunday was the primary program in our ward. The kids have been practicing it for a couple of weeks. Mr. T had a line to say with his class and Miss S had to give a 2 minute talk about serving others. She did awesome and looked so beautiful, so grown up. I am really proud of her, she has an amazing ability to speak in front of people.

Before church I saw this piece of bread on the counter. I didn't think too much of it. With three kids I see a lot half eaten food left on the counter. No big deal, I left it there. Whoever ate some of it might come back for more. I didn't realize what this little slice of bread meant to my little guy. When we got to church Mr. T had to wait until they called his class up to sit in front, that's when I learned.

Mr. T - "It's okay, I already had the bread and water. I did it at home."

Me - Confused, then remembering the bread at home, "Did you bless it too?"

Mr. T - "Yep."

It was so sweet. He thought he wouldn't get the sacrament if he was sitting up front and so he did it himself. It was sweet because he thought about it ahead of time and knew it was something he didn't want to miss. It was sweet because he didn't involve anyone else, it was important to him. It was sweet because I was able to see a little bit of his faith. He is just sweet.

Trick or Treat...

We had a great Halloween! My kids got to go trick or treating 3 times this year and you should see the piles of candy in our house. It is ridiculous! I need to find a place to donate candy. Here are some pictures of Tinkerbell, Captain Jack Sparrow and Hannah Montana...
