Play Time

Well today is yet another cool breezy day...but I don't mind it so much.

Hannah is officially a Girl Scout now...she is very excited and will be selling cookies soon. It will be nice for her to have an activity to be around other girls her age. She has friends in the neighborhood but most times plays with her brother and his friends. It will also give us something to do together when outings come up with her troop.

Logan is in soccer mode now and practices quite a bit so it keeps him busy after homework everyday. They are not doing to bad either...tied their first game and won the second. I like getting out in the fall weather to watch him play.

Chloe is a little busy bee today. We walk to school everyday and she kept conversation with me and after lunch said, "mommy, let's read...and build a tower." So that is what we did. We read a Care Bears Halloween book and built her tower.
Pretty good for a 4 year old...LOL. We have built bigger and better towers but this was her own. It was fun! Sometimes I get preoccupied and we don't get as much time to "play" when she gets home from school and I have to remind myself to slow down. The dishes can wait 30 minutes and I can fold laundry later. I don't want time to just pass us by. That is my goal for the week...take more time and slow down. I feel like I am fast forward a lot of the time and it's the little moments that kids remember.

Now it's time to get things done around the house before dinner and soccer practice tonight(because I have homework due later). So until next time....

Breezy Days

Wow, talk about a change in weather. If I didn't feel it before I do now-Fall has arrived! Although, I cannot complain...fall is my favorite season. I love the coolness without all the snow and ice, I love the smell of leaves burning, and I love that it is soccer season for Logan. Don't get me wrong, he played baseball for the first time this year and it was a lot of fun but nothing beats soccer season for me!!
Today was a busy day, and to end it we had soccer practice and Hannah is officially a Girl Scout. She is recovering from a broken arm so we all decided together that maybe she should sit this season of soccer out and find another activity. She found it....and is excited! Now Chloe is talking about tee ball next summer. Ahhh, having 3 kiddos can make for busy days anytime of the year let alone activities all at the same time. It'll work itself out though. I love being on the go....

Well this is kind of a short update, I am actually supposed to be doing MY homework right now and I am procrastinating, which happens often.'s off to work I go(on homework that is).

Until next time.....

School Daze

I am a little behind. Chloe really enjoyed her first day back to school. I on the other hand was a little sad, as this is her last year of preschool and she will be in Kindergarten next fall. It is crazy how fast kids grow, it feels like yesterday that she was crawling around on the floor. Chloe is much more independent than her brother and sister were at her age. When talking to Chloe I feel like I am talking to another adult sometimes. Earlier today she was telling me how "disappointed" she was that her brother "be's mean" to her. It was so cute. Her brother, Logan, actually loves her to pieces. Logan and Hannah are enjoying their new schools as well this year. This makes me happy because I was so worried about them starting a new school. We are keeping busy with homework, and then the kids want to run and hang out with their friends as soon as they are done.
Logan is getting ready to start another soccer season and I think that I am more excited than he is about it. With staying at home with the kids presently it helps to get out of the house every now and then.

Speaking of getting out of the house, it is time to get Chloe outside. She is a television junkie and I am trying to find other things to occupy her time. Until next time.....
