Fall Soccer Season

Both Jackson and Audrey played soccer this Fall. They had a blast. Audrey was very competitive this season and loved the games her coach played to teach new skills. He involved the parents too, which made it fun for everyone.

Jackson had a great season too. He loves to play defense, and he did a great job watching the field and figuring out where to go and what to do. Of course, he still likes to play around on the field a little too. It's starting to look like real soccer though and was so much fun to watch!

Halloween Fun

We had a fun Halloween with friends. The fun began on Friday with a costume parade at school. Audrey was a cheerleader, and Jackson was the transformer, Optimus Prime.

Then each class had a party. I'm the room mom for both classes, which meant I was responsible for organizing the parties. Fortunately, we have a great group of parents to help out since I can't be in two places at once! I stayed in Jackson's class for this celebration and helped the kids make slime and play halloween bingo. They loved it!

After the parties ended, the Monster Mash fall festival began. There were game booths, dancing, face painting, raffles, and food.

On Halloween, Saturday, we joined our life group friends at one of their houses for a fun party and some great trick-or-treating. I didn't get any pics since it gets dark so early, but their costumes were the same. There are a few more pictures from Friday in the album.

Labor Day Weekend

So...I'm still behind on blog posts. Better late than never though! My mom came to visit for Labor Day Weekend. While she was here we spent a day at Half Moon Bay. The weather was perfect! We had lots of fun hiking along and climbing up and down the cliffs.

There was a lot of excitement about getting to the beach.

We loved walking along the water and watching the waves crash into the rocks.

The kids were most interested in playing in the sand. There was lots of digging and castle-building.

As the sun began to set, we made our way to a local restaurant for dinner...a little silliness was involved!

The next day we visited a park down the street and did a little tree climbing.

It was a great weekend! There are more pictures in the album.
