Soccer Sensation!

Brock FINALLY gets to play soccer. He has been waiting for about 2 years now, so he is beyond excited!! His team is the Red Dragons and believe me, they are FIERCE!! There are only six of them on the team. They play 3 on 3 with no goalie. It is quite entertaining! They have only played 3 games but the improvements since the first game are amazing! Our little athlete is definitely tearing it up on the field. It is so fun to watch him. After a full day of school and an hour of running his heart out, by the time 8:00 rolls around he is exhausted and crashes as soon as his little head hits the pillow! Keep up the great work Brock, we love you!

Beaded Watch Bands

So I have found a little project for me that I LOVE. I have been making these beaded watch bands and they are so dang cute. I came across the idea while I was in Utah (of course) and knew it was something that I could do. I make a smaller size for kids and teens and then an adult size. I have all colors of beads to work with as well as different watch faces. The coolest thing is you can interchange the bands. So let's say you buy a silver or white watch face. Well you can wear tons with those colors! So then you can buy a couple different colors of bands and interchange them with the same watch face...depending on what you are wearing!! Below is just a sampling of what I have as I am making more each day. I will try to update as I go.

Pricing: Smaller sizes (including watch face)$18
Larger sizes (including watch face)$25

Bands only: Smaller sizes $10
Larger sizes $17

Brock's Last Day of Preschool!

Brock has officially finished preschool and will be in kindergarten this fall. He had a great school year and his teacher's thoroughly enjoyed having him in class. I can't believe he is going to be 6 this fall.....where has the time gone??!! Brock is such a sweet little guy. We are so excited to watch him grow. We love you "little man!!"

After returning home from his friend's house, Brock and I were looking through what he brought home from school today. He had a sweet little note from his teacher and I wanted to share what it said: Brock,

"You are a terrific boy. You are a wonderful student. You listen very well. You do good work. You have very smart answers and great thinking ideas! You are very friendly. You are fair. You are fun loving and you smile a lot. You are cheerful. You are a good friend. You are helpful in our classroom. I have loved being your teacher. Thank you for coming to my school."

It is always so refreshing to hear what other people have to say about your kids (especially when it is so positive). I always hope for the best, but never know for sure!!

We had the best Spring Break this year. We decided to splurge a little and take the family to San Diego. It was well worth it! We went to Sea World, Lego Land, and the Zoo! The kids had the time of their lives. They played hard every day. They literally (all three of them) had blood-shot eyes at the end of the day!! Misson accomplished!!
We met up with our friends, Chad and Katy and their little boy Isaac down there. We couldn't have aked for better company...they're the best! Thanks guys for a memorable much fun!! Brock making sure the cockpit is ready for take-off!

Leg Warmers

Hello everyone! Sorry, I have been slacking on the blog posts. I have been sucked into Facebook these days! So I have made more leg warmers for anyone interested. I know it is getting warmer (hopefully) but they are great for the little ones who are learning to crawl. They just give them a little extra protection on their knees! Below are pics of what I have available. I have duplicates of some so let me know if you want more than just one pair of the same style. I will continue to make more if I have enough interest so share my blog with your friends! Thanks for checking them out! $6 each or 3 for $15
