I am so sorry that I havent posted anything new lately. I had sinus surgery on July 10th and did not expect it to knock me down the way it did. I thought I would sit at home recovering and scrapbooking while enjoying some time off of work. Obviously that did not happen. I was one of the lucky people who has sinus surgery and doesn’t get over it in a few days. This is the first day that I feel somewhat normal. Needless to see I didn’t get any scrapbooking done at all :(

Sunday I managed to drag myself out of bed bright and early again for another soccer game. We are doing soccer through a program that is called i9 sports. i9 sports is a program that is not about teaching your child the fundamental of that particular sport but just getting the kids out there to have some fun. So when I say my daughter is playing soccer she is really just running around with a bunch of other 4 year olds chasing a ball around and trying to get that ball into a goal. There 4 so they don’t even care which goal they kick the ball into! Any who the point of this is that every week there is a skill that is picked and the child that exhibits that skill during the game gets a medal.┬áThis week the skill was listening and of course Raena got the medal and of course mommy was feeling like crap and didn’t even have her camera with her at the soccer game. Talk about feeling like a horrible mommy! My little princess was so proud of herself and all she could think about was coming home and showing her older brother that she has a medal just like him!

In she runs and barges into her big brothers room yelling “DADA look I got a medal just like yours”. Anyone that has 13 year olds at home can understand that my 13-year-old was not the happiest 13-year-old on the planet by being woken up this way! I have to say that I am a very proud mama as he gave his sister a high-five and told her that she was AWESOME!

Here are the little soccer players saying gooooo Lightning, which is the name of their team!

Raena is getting the medal for being a great Listener!!!

WhoooHoooo go Raena you got the medal!!!


Soccer Sunday

So I signed Raena up for soccer….oh what was I thinking was my first thought at 6:30 A.M. this morning. When you have to be at soccer by 8:30 A.M. you have no choice but to bite the bullet and get up at 6:30 A.M. on a Sunday morning. So again what was I thinking? LOL. I got up and went straight to the Keurig for my morning coffee. I highly suggest a Keurig for coffee lovers. I think it is my favorite appliance in the whole house! I don’t have to wait for a whole pot of coffee to brew anymore and since I am the only coffee drinker in the house it is the best thing ever!! So I get my coffee, get dressed and go wake up my little monster! She didn’t want to wake up either this morning but as soon as I told her that we had to get ready for soccer, her eyes popped open and she said ok mommy let’s get ready.

Then we get to the gym where she is going to play soccer at. Thank God it is indoor soccer as it is blistering hot in South Florida right now. We get there and all of a sudden Raena has become shy and she doesn’t want to play. Which I was very surprised about because she is normally my social butterfly.

This is Raena’s I am shy and I don’t want to go play face

Then it was play time. Obviously 3 and 4 year old’s do not know how to play soccer nor are they ready to learn the basic skills of soccer. What do they do they do, you might ask? They run around and kick the ball!!! It ‘s great exercise and she had a ton of fun. So next Sunday when I wake up at 6:30 A.M. and wonder what am I doing I will remind myself that Raena had a blast and is really looking forward to going back to play at another soccer game.

Here she is warming up with all the other 3 and 4 year olds! She is #41

Next weekend I think I will bring my SLR camera so that I can some great action shots! I am definitely looking forward to scrapbooking Raena’s first time playing soccer. This is a whole lot different from dance class where I wasn’t allowed to see her dancing and couldn’t get any pictures.

Here they are just running around after the ball!
