Okay, so normally I would refrain of posting this kind of picture but I couldn't resist! Today was Tana's pool party and it wasn't the nicest of days but really, 8 & 9 year olds just don't care. There were many jumping contests and here's the boys striking their pose after the best "Fashion" jump! Too funny!
It was the last game and man, was it hot out! There were a lot of red faces on the field this nite. The outcome was a 1-1 tie with a penalty kick in the dying minutes of the game for us to tie it up.
This was the rematch against the Dakota team that beat us. They were the only team to beat us so far and we all wanted to win and win we did! Yay. Good game, girls! Now we are officially U9 division champs for Bonivital!
Gavin's soccer windup was on Monday. They have various stations set up where the kids do different activities and one station included a lesson with "Fred". Fred is awesome and teaches soccer camps and such to the younger kids. It was the first thing Gavin mentioned to me when he came in the door after the windup. That and it was the best windup ever!

After winning two games in the heat on Sunday, the girls advanced to the final to play Maples, whom they beat in their first game. Unfortunately, Maples had more in their tanks than our Knights did and beat them with a score of 1-0 to take home the Gold medals and the Slurpee Cup trophy! Way to go, Purple, we are so proud of all of you for your efforts!
Day 2 of the Slurpee Cup and after winning Game 2, the girls got the opportunity to get the coaches in the hot seat, namely the Dunk Tank! It was a hot day and both Coach Rick and Coach Thomas (Daddy) got to taste the drink!

These are good times, my friends. Spending the morning with my son's Kindergarten class at Fort Whyte. It was a great day for it. We won't mention the mosquitoes. Saw some pelicans, turtles, geese, went critter dipping. Good times, good times!

After the incident at soccer last night that really bothered me, this picture is very appropriate. And yes, I cheated and didn't take this picture today but a couple of years ago when I was in Fargo.
I will be blogging about this incident in my other blog in the next day or two.

Now this is a sight that warms my heart! My kids reading with their Papa (though the book that Gavin has is a little beyond his comprehension but he wants to be like his sister and read Warriors too!)
by Bejewelled! The online game I am obsessed with and addicted too. Its always just one more game....and I can't seem to stop. Nor can I seem to get the highest score of all my friends that play.

While watching Marley & Me, Boots all of a sudden noticed the dog on the screen and ambled over to the tv to take a closer look - and proceeded to watch for a few minutes! Too funny!
In my attempt to declutter (albeit slowly), I organized my closet and tidied it up and whilst doing that, Boots decided to make this nearby box her home! You can just barely see her eye in this shot!
