29August2016 ~ waiting for the bus
L was excited for the first day of school on the first day of school.She wasn't so excited before that day. I thought having a play date with her closest friends before school started would get her excited..."nope." When asked if the girls were excited about school it was a yes from everyone, but L.
Back to the first day of school...a little sister did was not ready for L to leave her. Lexiloo was trying to be as close to her sister as possible.
Lexiloo started in the Pre-K room one week after L went off to 3rd grade.
I'm happy to report...L loves school so far. She talks about school and is doing her homework without us asking her. She also wants to read..anything to not go to sleep, but I'll take as a win.
Our life is consumed by soccer...all year round. L has come to love soccer and it's something she and Dave share that is special to them. There's the town team, winter team, the league and clinics that L is involved in. Right now there's two nights with practices, a game on Saturday and two games every other Sunday. Some weeks there are three practices, with one of them back to back.
February ~ GPS winter games
All of L's hard work is showing. She has become aggressive and goes after the ball whether in offense or defense. She loves to score to the point where it may be considered being a poor sport. I'm working on this. Dave does not discipline much, so it's up to me to do it. L doesn't like it when it's me who brings her to soccer. I've told her if she kept up her attitude it will be me taking her to all her practices and game. This may be more of a punishment for me.
This is what Dave and L will practice on for hours in the yard.…
07Jan2017 ~ First snow storm of the New Year.
Lexiloo and L needed to get out of the house even after they both ran errands with me. Lexiloo wanted to build a snowman, but the snow was too light. L had 6 soccer games today and all was canceled. With the snow storm everything was canceled.
