Yep! It's that time of year again, Hudson is *LOVING* soccer. He is enjoying everything about soccer right now.....practice, games, snacks, friends, everything. He is even playing his own games in the backyard by himself. His team is filled with lots of friends, so we have really enjoyed all the fun times together. It has been so fun to watch him enjoy playing and working hard to develop some new skills. Now for the pictures....

Plano Balloon Festival

This year we went to the Plano Balloon Festival. I was really excited about it and thought the kids would love it. However, this picture was the most exciting that it got:( Unfortunately it was too windy for the balloons to launch so we didn't get to see ANY hot air balloons. Oh well, but thank you to the Lambs for bringing this super cool wagon to provide us with some excitement.

Hudson's 1st day of Pre-school

Back in Sept, Hudson had his first day of Pre-school. When I was working he went to school, but this is a little more "focused." So far, he loves it. He is going 9am-noon on tuesdays and thursdays. There have a been a few moments where he has told me that he doesn't want to go because he wants to hang out with us but he ALWAYS has a great time. He is enjoying all the different crafts they do and the bible stories that they talk about. Here is a picture from his first day and a picture of Parker (she just didn't want to be left out)

10 months

Once again another month has passed and our littlest one is now 10 months. I can't believe we are only 2 months away from being a 1 year old. It has been an absolute joy to watch him interact with the world around him. He adores Hudson and Parker and often tries to play their games with them. Recently, he has started waving, giving high fives, clap, stand on his own (balance) and say "dada". He is eating all sorts of squash, quinoa, avocado, beets and sweet potatoes. I love his toothy grin, hopefully the other front tooth will debut soon. We love you little man! Happy 10 months

Way back in September........

For labor day we packed up and went to stay at my (Erin's) Uncle Pete and Aunt Sue's house. It was a perfect getaway for us before Christian headed off on what would be a month of figuring out where his next job would bring us. Our weekend was fantastic!!! We swam, played air hockey, watched some football, enjoyed a cousins birthday party and had some great conversations with family. This weekend was an amazing blessing to us before the month of craziness. Thank you Uncle Pete and Auntie Sue for opening your home to us and allowing us to invade your space.
