We jam-packed last Saturday.
Dave ran a half-marathon.
I’m so proud of him.
Along with taking the team pictures, I got to cheer Elle on in her last game I’ll get to see since we’ll be out of town for the finale game next week.
(Note the beautiful yellow winter grass we have here.)
Man, this girl is a soccer player! She hasn’t played since we signed her up when she was like four-years-old and cared only about how cute the outfit was. But for the last few years she’s asked if she could play. And I finally got on the ball enough to sign her up this year.
They took third place, and let me tell you, there were some GOOD players there.
I had to tear myself away early to go speak at the stake baptisms (although I must say I kinda like that too).
I came home to find the Dave shooting baskets in the driveway with Max (who is trying out for the Jr. High b-ball team this week…send good vibes his way!). After the marathon and a tennis tournament. I know, Dad of the Year is totally coming his way.
No pictures of that though since I had to run to one of my two Christmas photoshoots (people that had scheduled a whole year in advance before I had my big epiphany that I needed to choose to take a hiatus from the whole photography business that was taking over my life for a little while). Here’s one of my favs. from the shoot…more when I get through more of them.
We topped off the evening by taking Max and Elle out for dinner to thank them for all that they do to help out around here, because you know what? They totally deserved it. They are such good kids and sometimes they just go about their jobs and homework while the “needy” younger kids suck out so much of our attention.Love these guys.
