I LOVE watching Puck play soccer, LOVE it!  It is the most exciting thing to see him giving 100% effort at something.  Yesterday was the first game and he really did use all the skills he learned last year.  I miss our old team but it's always nice to meet new people too.  I didn't take any pictures as it was hectic with both Puck and Muffin's games happening at the same time.  Muffin wasn't as excited about playing soccer this time, not sure why.  He loved it last time.  So we will have to see how that goes. 

Can't wait until next weeks games, photos to come for sure!

I love the Summer but I'm usually ready for it to end once Fall rolls around.  Cooler weather, sweaters, and blue jeans.  We've been sleeping with the windows open and when you wake up the air is fresh and the sheets are cool against your body.  Of course, it's really dark when you have to get up early to go to work, but there is still just something special about it.

So far the year is off to a good start.  Muffin is taking Kindergarten in stride although I'm sure he doesn't eat lunch at least 2 days a week.  Lasagna was not a big hit for my picky eater but I'm inclined not to give in and pack his lunch yet.  I love that he is exposed to new food choices everyday and surrounded by peers that are eating all of said choices! 

Puck has started CCD.  I have to admit I haven't been to Mass since I was married over 10 years ago but since he is in 2nd grade this year and this is the year 1st Communion is received I felt compelled to get moving in the religious education department.  Hubs is not catholic so it took a little convincing but the first class went well and it's truly time for Puck to know that there is a higher power than mom and dad enforcing all the rules.

Soccer has also begun and the boys are really enjoying it, especially Puck.  That week of summer soccer camp really paid off and I can't wait to watch him play in his first game on Saturday.  I really love to watch him play:)  It's fun to see your child really excited about something and wanting to be good at it.

Me...well I'm trying to take it all in stride.  It's a really busy time of the year.  I'm trying to set my priorities for myself and my family.  I need to take better care of myself, physically and mentally.  I've been cooking a bit and looking into healthier ways of eating for both me and the kids.

Fish Bowl

Not that anyone is even reading anymore but I have been unable to blog.  Truthfully, I started blogging as a way to talk about things that were deeply personal.  I saw it as therapy.  Now I feel like I'm swimming in a fish bowl and people that know me IRL are reading without letting me know they are reading and so I just don't want to say anything at all.

I'm just not sure where to go with this blog.  I miss reading your comments and I'm so behind on all of your blogs and for that I'm sorry.

Not sure what to do...

Tomorrow is the Day

...that I send my baby off to Kindergarten.  I can't believe the time has come to put Muffin on the school bus and watch is drive off down the street.

I love this kid and he has come so far but he is still Muffin.  Last night he had a total meltdown when we realized his new favorite PJ's were in the dryer.  He cried for 45 minutes (the compete dry cycle) and he kept telling me he was "so sad" and the tears just kept coming as if it was the worst possible sadness he could imagine.  He wasn't going to give this battle up and he didn't go to sleep until I pulled the warm PJ's from the dryer and handed them over.

Muffin in St. Augustine, FL this summer
I know I will ball like a baby when I put my "baby" on the bus tomorrow morning.  I know just the site of him wearing his new Mario.Bros backpack will make the tears prick my eyes.  I hope he just gets on the bus with only excitement and no fear.  I don't want to send this kid out into the world but I know I have to.  I literally feel like a Mama bird pushing her baby bird out of the nest and forcing him to fly.

Good luck tomorrow Muffin, I know you are destined for Kindergarten greatness:)  So much love:)
