Shoot. And I wasn’t going to do that. Last night’s soccer game was…fun. Livi scored her team’s first goal of the season, so that was very cool! This is her third season of soccer. Season one–scored her first goal in the last game. Season two–no goals. Season three–one game, one goal. I know soccer’s not all about scoring goals, but it sure is fun.
So, I was writing yesterday while Nina napped and Ava was at her assessment. Glance at my computer clock. 2:40! Nina’s sound asleep, and I’m supposed to pick Ava up at 2:45. We live super close to the school, thank goodness. Dash upstairs, sweep sleeping Nina out of her crib, grab her shoes and my keys, out to the van. Buckle her in, try to put her shoes on, give up, race to the school, carry her to Ava’s classroom. Get there at 2:47. Whew.
Interrupted nap made for very cranky Nina at the game. After chasing her on the playground for awhile, we tried sitting down for a snack and watching the game. Ha. Gabe and I took turns with her–stroller rides, walks around the field, back to the playground. We were both exhausted. Considering taking turns staying HOME with Nina every now and again, but neither of us wants to miss any games. Hm.
Ava starts school tomorrow. We are ready for this. I’m excited for her.
Gail has asked for prayer requests on her site. Thanks for praying, Gail. And what a great place to go and pray through everyone’s requests. I encourage you to take a few moments today and do just that. You don’t even have to know everyone. And it might even be a cool place to connect with someone in the same boat as you–you never know.
Have a great day, all!
