Soccer & The Beginning of Summertime

I signed Easton up for soccer this year.  We aren’t much of a soccer family.  We know nothing about it, really.  But, Easton wanted to try it, so we thought we’d give it a go.  The first practice and game was pretty sad.  It was obvious that the other kids on the team had played soccer the year before, and about all Easton knew was to kick the ball.  I was worried that Easton was going to get discouraged, but he did the opposite.  He started practicing everyday in the backyard, and he loved every minute of every soccer game and practice.  005011This was the first game.  Notice Easton is the only one without shin guards…170Ahh…better.024This was right after he scored his first goal.  He was so thrilled that day.  Right before this game started he came up to me and said,  “I’m going to score a goal today….do you feel it, Mommy?”  Of course I said I feel it.  So glad he got one.215Next game.  He got two goals….and of course, I wasn’t able to get either one on camera.  But he is completely thrilled about it.photophoto (2)Yep. That’s my child picking at his finger nails in the picture.

And now that it’s summertime, we’ve done a few fun things. Uncle
Brad got a condo up at Snowbird, so we all went up to swim and hang out.  091093094096098105107109

A little trip Trafalga with Ryan, Rebecca, Carson, and Tate.092093100101

And our BBQ Birds.  One day, Ace opened the BBQ to find a ridiculously huge nest and 6 robin eggs.  428431117And then they hatched.

So naturally, we made bird feeders with our cousins.198199201202206210212216218
I’m sure those birds were just ecstatic.

And on the days there is nothing else to do (most of the days), we whip out the sprinkler…132134135136139And then, dry off by riding scooters…144Happy summer days!
