School Days!?

Soo David is getting ready to start kindergarten this week and we are all exited (nervous too!). Hopefully he will be as excited about school as we are. :)

Another soccer season is coming to a close and David once again had a blast! He has gotten more comfortable with the ball at his feet and doesn't shy away from bumping shoulders for possession like he did during the Fall season.  He says his favorite part of soccer is scoring goals (..and he scored a lot. We aren't supposed to keep score, but Momma couldn't help herself.) and taking the ball from the other players.  In the end, I am just glad he is enjoying the sport and I hope it continues for many seasons to come. :)

Attack of the Phantom Menace

Soo... I believe I have been raising David right, and by right, I mean with healthy doses of Star Wars mixed in to insure proper character development! :)

Up until the release of Episode 1 in 3D, David had not seen any of the prequel movies. (I figured he needed to get his basics down first.) However, since seeing The Phantom Menace in the theater last month, he has been on a Star Wars kick you would not believe!

It has been fun watching him play with his action figures, running around the backyard reenacting the movies, even while cleaning the bathrooms. I hope he always keeps his sense of play, and hopefully I haven't steered him too far down the Dork side. ;)

He's Growing Up!

This summer's been fun, full of learning and firsts. We visited the farm in South Dakota, he took swim lessons two times and practiced at home and in Jackie & Susie's pool, spent lots of time in Daddy daycare, spent a week with Poppy & Granna, fed horses for the first time, participated in his first VBS, and shot his first gun. He learned how to write some of his letters, and even drew his first family portrait. Overall, it was a great summer!

Look Who's Five!

David recently celebrated his 5th birthday with family and a "How To Train Your Dragon" cake. We ate at Cafe Antigua, bought some soccer shoes for his upcoming season, and napped before the party began. Then it was all fun and lots of cake and ice cream! Happy 5th b-day, kiddo!
