Soccer, Soccer, Soccer

Practice three times a week (she WANTS to go to the optional 3rd one done by the league), plus a game on Saturdays. I feel like Claire is living and breathing soccer right now:

I am surprised to find that I miss her a little. I don't stay at her practices any more.  I just drop her off.  All this soccer is eating up a lot of the time that she's not in school and I actually don't see her as much as I'd like. I'm thrilled that she's enjoying herself, spending time with the great friends she has on her team, and getting exercise.  I love that she's learning non-academic things. But she has actually reached an age where she's kinda helpful and fun to talk to, so when she can keep from fighting with Scott, I really like having her around. So yes, I miss her.

Great. Now I'm a sap AND a soccer mom.

Whoa. Claire looks SO BIG! She is growing up! It's fun having older kids isn't it? I spent a day at lagoon with Gwen a couple weeks ago and had a great time!

Thursdays are my favorite because it is the only day that nine of my kids have anything on their calendar!!! I totally miss them the rest if the week!!!

I was flipping through my reader and saw the picture and thought...het! Those look like Livi's uniforms! :P. * inserteyeroll*
