Exciting Weekend: SOTM & Soccer Season Kicks Off

So proud of Avery for being chosen as student of the month!  Ahem...first month, third year in a row-but who's counting?

It was so cute to see Ben walking in with his class to the rally.  

He was a little out of sorts with seeing his family sitting there...not one to embrace the unexpected, this one.

Looking very big.

We treated her to hibachi dinner that night.

Saturday morning we were up and ready for soccer games.  Ben's very first game!

Ben became a bit enraged upset when he wasn't allowed to run, unimpeded, down the field towards the goal.  Much to his disappointment, other kids were also trying to take the ball.  Little guy doesn't have the concept down just yet.  We'll keep working on it...

I love how you can hear Avery cheering him on.

Avery scored a goal during her game!  She was so excited and proud of herself.

We loved seeing her hustle and take control of the ball.  Last season she tended to shy away from the ball.  Hopefully her confidence continues to grow!

Cherry Berry treat after the games!  I don't know that there's a more exciting treat for these two...

Ben continues to gain more confidence in the pool.  He is now not only jumping off the side but jumping by himself with no one to catch him.  This is big.  Unfortunately we're coming to the end of summer!   We need to harness this momentum the next few weeks!
