Soccer Tournament

Break away ... the story of Xander's first soccer game at the annual tournament.

My favorite part of the day was how proud of himself he was after each goal, clapping and looking over on the sidelines to make sure we had seen him score the goal!

He LOVES to score goals, and he did so well that at one point the coach had him try out the goalie position in the net, just to give the other team a break!

Bowling Boy

There are no words ... the child is beyond athletic ... seven strikes and one spare in that last game!

Sunday was a divide and conquer kind of day. Grammy and Pappy and Aunt Kelly took Connor and Sawyer to the circus. Daddy and I took Xander to the "Touch-A-Truck" event in town. Xander was one happy kid. He wasn't excited about all of the horns blowing (not sure why we didn't think about this and pack his noise-canceling headphones, but we didn't). That took a little getting used to, but he quickly adjusted (hands over ears in places) and explored away.

Nothing like a bunch of trucks to make Xander happy. He was disappointed not to see his "FedEx Trucks-es" but seemed happy with everything else. His favorites were the ambulances (not one like Daddy's, but a few others were there), the big semi-trucks and the garbage trucks, of course.
