Winter is finally giving up and letting spring win, Hooray! But with spring means lots of business as well. Jacob's soccer season has been in full swing so we've been enjoying a lot of games! His team has done awesome--in fact they started as a B league team and did so well they were bumped to the A league and are currently in first place in the A league! Semi finals are tonight and we are excited to go. Jacob has been feeling under the weather but I'm sure he's determined to win! Go Shooters!
Here's the older boys at one of Jake's games. I love it when Tyler comes to cheer Jake on.
Eric, Jacob and I went for a ride the other day as well. It was a short ride, just testing out a new horse we got. Jacob started on Penny, a horse we've had for a long time.
Look at Cinco with her little halter on. SO adorable. We even got her to lick our hands. Maybe she liked the salty taste? Who knows, but it was cute anyway.
And of course nothing can be easy, right? So guess who went and got herself sprayed point blank by a skunk?
Miss Ziggy. She smelled so bad, we tried everything, baking soda and peroxide, tomato juice, but she still stinks. Argh!
A few days before Cinco was born we actually went up to ride the horses a little bit around the field. Eric wanted to give the kids some experience being around the horses and dealing with them, etc. Which I think is a great idea.
This white beauty we call Crazy Alice. She doesn't act too crazy, but she looks a little crazy! She has such light fur and bright blue eyes. She's a good horse but hates to be caught. Once you've got her she's ok but sometimes getting that rope on her is tricky.
As the end of the school year approaches I get treated to some school programs starring my kids. Maggie had her first grade program last Friday. She was one of the hula hoopers. I had no idea she could hula hoop so well....I am miserable at it. She looked so cute and sang her heart out. I loved it.
And since life had been a lot about soccer lately, here's a few shots of Jake playing. Their normal team uniform is the white jersey, but since sometimes other teams also have white we wear the green ones (their name and number is on the back). Jacob really loves soccer. He plays defender and does a great job. He has such a fun team, almost all of them were his friends in school already. So it's great to see them play together.
Spring is here and summer is coming soon! I can't wait for school to be out and all the good times we will have over the next few months!
