Beating the Heat

We finally made it to the pool last week. Maddox waited until it was time to go before he would try jumping off the diving board and then he didn't want to leave.  The boys are thrilled they get to go every week through Summer Camp now.

Sporting KC

We made it to our first Sporting KC game along with Macens soccer team and their families. Since the boys won their division this spring, they were recognize at half time for their win. We occupied the first 3 rows behind the goal. When Sporting KC gets a goal, they shoot blue confetti out of little cannons right where we were. The kids loved it! We were also prone to flying balls during warm up so not sure its the best place to sit. While Macen's team walked the field, Maddox danced for all the parents, lol. We had a great time and the boys can't wait to go to more games.

Here is a pic the Heartland Soccer Assoc provided from when they were on the field during halftime.

It's Ball Season!!!

We were only able to get Maddox to play this summer and he had his first t-ball game this week. So much fun to watch this age - free entertainment at the ball field!

Killin' Time

Chillin' between soccer games.

First Year of Club Soccer

Macen has completed his first year of competitive soccer and the team ended with being the Spring Champions for their division. He (and us) got very lucky and had an amazing team! The boys played so well together from the beginning. They trusted each other and learned quickly to play off the strengths they each brought to the game. James and I got the opportunity to meet some amazing soccer parents. I mean we get to spend a lot of time together, lol and to have a group of parents this amazing doesn't always happen. Beyond grateful for the new friendships! 

I think at this point it is mixed emotions for all of us, lol. It was a long 11 months of nearly nonstop soccer. Macen is probably burnt out and he will enjoy the next month off. But his playing abilities have improved so much from a year ago and this has been a great learning experience on several levels for him. So prood of him!

Last Day of 1st Grade & 5th Grade

School is out! Everyone is relieved, lol! They celebrated with fidget spinner lollipops.

Wrapping Up Some Soccer

This guy finished his spring soccer. His team looked amazing on the field given most of them are 6-7 yrs old.
