I'm a soccer mom

Logan's participating in Little Kickers soccer, which means six weeks of learning some basic soccer skills.

We're in the last weeks, so the kids get to scrimmage against other Little Kickers teams. It's so cute! Some of them are good, some stand there with their fingers up their noses. Some refuse to play. Some run and score goals the wrong way. Logan is pretty good. He gets it and plays hard. He's not afraid to get in there, steal the ball, etc. It's a lot of fun to watch him play. He has scored a goal in each of the scrimmages so far. I was so proud!

Plus, the coach is hot. (But then I'm partial, since I'm married to him and all.)

So, yeah, I'm a soccer mom and I'm proud of it. No minivan, though. I could sure use one sometimes!

Here are some "action" shots from Saturday's scrimmage.

A beautiful autumn

We're having a gorgeous October here in Michigan. I LOVE this month.

A real post!

Hey everyone!


Anyone there?


Oh well.


It's been a while, and we're all moved into the new house.

Well, except the basement. We have a utility room that's stuffed with a bunch of storage tubs that need to be organized (Logan's outgrown stuff that's waiting for Jordan to use, holiday stuff, camping and hiking gear, my craft and scrapbooking stuff, etc.).

This is SO MUCH house compared to our old one. It's pretty close to twice the square footage. We have plenty of space now!

My bedroom, for example, went from looking like this (completely unable to walk around the bed, and barely able to open the dresser drawers)

to this.

Now it's pretty spacious to the point that we will probably eventually get a couple chairs or something to put in there.

I love it!

The move was just plain insanity. My husband, his buddy and his dad worked their butts off hauling stuff from one house to the other and the boys and I were here catching it all as it came in. Two mirrors got broken, but other than that, it was all pretty much intact.

Then came a week of putting things away like crazy.

Blah blah blah. No art on the walls yet, so it still kind of echoes in here. Got a new TV stand thingy. Got a light to go over the kitchen table since the previous owners took theirs with them. Had to have a plumber come out and fix the boys' bathtub faucet because only hot water would come out. Internet connection here is sucky so it's not nearly as easy to post photos or blog or anything. Grrr.... I got really spoiled by high-speed at the other house!

Hubby and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary yesterday. No big to-do. Just some lasagna for dinner.

Getting ready for Halloween. Logan wanted to be a gorilla, but I totally failed in making his costume, so I made him a robot costume instead, complete with flashing lights that work off a battery pack. It's cool. Got him silver hairspray and face paint too. He loves it.

Jordan's going to wear the monkey costume I made for Logan when he was 1 1/2.

So that's that. The weather here has been sooooo spectacular. We've just been enjoying October in Michigan, which can be just breathtaking. Some days I'm just plain dazzled.

Hope all has been going great for all of you, too! I missed blogging big-time! It's good to be back.

I miss blogging!

This is a test.

Thanks to a super-slow internet connection at the new house. Blogger's been refusing to post anything I write.



I repeat, this is only a test.
