What? No talk?

Last week was Pete's first time sitting up with the bishopric since he got his new calling of Second councilor. I'm not loving the sitting by myself thing with the kids during sacrament meeting. Especially because the Sunday they asked Pete to do this calling was the first Sunday in 6 years we were able to cuddle and sit next to each other at church. Pete's lap and sides are usually occupied. Sundays are rough. Let's just say they have been warned with in an inch of their lives if they don't behave. They did ok last week but I got a kick when at the end Bridgette looked really confused at me and asked "but daddy didn't give a talk?". I don't think they realize it's an every Sunday sorta thing now.

Bridgette's First Soccer Practice

On Saturday, Bridgette had her first soccer practice/game.  She is still in the age group where the practices and games are on the same day.  She is also in the age group where the boys and girls are on the same team.  We were not aware of that until we showed up on Saturday and Bridgette loudly exclaims "You told me there wouldn't be any boys on my team."  Oops!!  Bridgette was very upset and spent the first half of practice with her arms folded, frowning and half-heartedly doing the drills.

During one of the water breaks, I told Bridgette that she would get a Slurpee after the game if she scored a goal.  Suddenly, she was flying all over the field and trying her hardest to score a goal.  She came close a bunch of times.  And, one of her attempts was headed in, but another player came running and kicked the ball into the goal just a few feet away from the goal.  I decided that an assist (that would have been a goal) counted.  Honestly, I would have been happy to give her a Slurpee just for how hard she tried. 

The best part came afterwards when the team was gathered around to get their drinks.  One of the boys, who has played soccer for a few years and who scored most of the goals, says: "Mom - I thought I would be the fastest kid on the team, but Bridgette is faster than me."  I wish I had taken a picture of the smile on Bridgette's face.

Davin's first soccer practice.

So a couple of people in our ward put a boys 3-4 yr old soccer team together and today was Davin's first day.  He did great at all the drills and had a huge smile on his face the whole time. The trouble started when they decided to play a game. Davin thought he was suppose to tackle people. Not just the boys with the ball either. Pete finally had to pull him off the field and explain the game to him. Luckily no one was crying and they just laughed thinking it was funny. Total hand to forehead moment for us.
