Getting Comfy

The kids are adjusting quite nicely the new place.  They think it is fun to use the wet bar for 'lunch and a movie' location.  I finally got the net put up on the trampoline, Jonathan likes carpet and Kevin love mom and dad's bed...and his daddy's basketball magazine.

Time to Lower the Crib

I came into the boys room to find Jonathan standing in the corner of his crib so very proud of himself.  I guess it is time to move the mattress all the way down.  Kevin wanted me to take a picture of him too (still wearing dad's shirts as pjs) but wouldn't open his eyes for it.

FHE: Elementary School Playground

For FHE this week, we went over and played at the elementary school playground.  Kherington was able to show off all her newly learned moves including crossing the monkey bars both ways and hanging up-side-down.  Kevin played a little and then danced around on the table (and hid when I came around with the camera). Also, a fun outdoor event in Texas wouldn't be complete without a red ant bite.  Kevin was the lucky one.  Someone should really learn how to kill off that species of ants.

Exploring the Neighborhood

We went for a family walk this afternoon.  The neighborhood is older but very nice.  At one corner we could hear constant cheering coming from one house and a huge football player blow-up at another.  Welcome to Texas football season (and on that note, we get phone calls from Kherington's elementary school about high school football games).  The kids loved playing at the neighborhood park.

Freezer Meals Prep

Our upright freezer got delivered on Friday so I went into stock the freezer mode.  I've wanted to try freezer meals for awhile so I used a Costco freezer meal plan found online and went to work.  It took about 4 hours to make 20 meals.  While I did that, Ryan took the kids room by room and taught them what they need to do to clean it.  Sweet deal for me.

Uncle Bren Came to Visit

Uncle Bren was taking some Oral Exams in Dallas so he came to visit for a little while.  The adults played games at night time after the kids were in bed. The kids loved having someone else to climb around on.  I loved that he happily took a very cranky Jonathan on a run with him while Kevin was at a friends house so I got a little alone time.  I love alone time. 

We wish we lived closer to his family.

Kherington's First Soccer Game

Kherington had a blast at her first game. They are the Honey Bee's. They didn't have their uniforms yet so someone made them these temporary uniforms (lets be honest, they could have just used these the whole season). She is the smallest and probably the youngest on her team.  By game time she had played all of 1.5 hours of soccer in her lifetime.  I really hope (mainly for my sake) she learns to be a little more competitive but am happy she is having fun.

Her brothers are great cheerleaders.  Things are a little different here.  Instead of bleachers, the parents all bring their own camping style folding chair, line the sidelines with them so they can sit and watch.  Luckily we had the the wool blanket in the back of the car to put on the wet grass.
