soccer + sneaks

Can I just say I love this time of year?

For some reason this season, this year seems better than most. Maybe it's because I've spent more time outdoors lately. Maybe it's because the Olympics are underway. Maybe it's because I'm loving where I'm at in life right now. 28 is a great year.

Plus, we've done some fun things lately. Yes, that is my husband with 4 teenagers and a fire hydrant. He was asked to be the driver for a photo scavenger hunt. They had to go around town and take pictures of various items and they got bonus points if they were all in the picture with the items. Some of the funnier items were:
  • a picture of the team in a bath tub
  • a picture of the team eating a sandwich
  • someone in a bath robe
  • Big Red (WKU's mascot)

Also this past week, Greg's been coaching Noah's soccer team. Something tells me Noah didn't like the instruction he was receiving.....
I know you're not supposed to have favorites, but this boy is my favorite. I can just look at him and smile. Isn't he a cutie? His name is Patrick and he gets so excited. He's both a player and a cheerleader for the team. In this picture he had just scored a goal and was coming in to give all the "fans" a high five. His victory lap :)
Look at that form!
And, to get the kids to come back to center field after a goal, the kids give Greg "running-high-fives": a phrase coined by Greg himself.
Finally, the Studio Calico sneaks. These are from the Marilyn and Sophia add-ons.

And below is a stamp from Marilyn and the rest from the main kit.
