Our busy Saturday mornings…

Our busy Saturday mornings…

Our soccer star...

While a lot of you know how busy our Saturday mornings are…few of you have actually been able to join us on one of the whirlwind trips we take each week.  So, we thought we would share some pics of our most recent ‘crazy’ Saturday!  The schedule boils down like this:  soccer game for Cameron, Soccer practice and game for Ellie, ballet for Ellie – ALL BEFORE 1:00pm!!  It’s a chaotic morning each week – but we wouldn’t have it any other way.  The kiddos LOVE it, and (even though we’re exhausted) so do we!

As for Cameron’s games, people should have to pay admission to watch them.  They are so intense, and so well-played, it’s hard to believe they are in the U8 league.  This past week was without a doubt Cameron’s most difficult game yet – and while his team lost, Cameron played wonderfully!  We are sooooooo proud of what a wonderful soccer player he has become.

Ellie EASILY has the busiest Saturday schedule out of our whole family.  She has to switch from being dainty and pretty @ ballet from 10:00 – 11:00, to digging in and getting tough in soccer from 12:45 to 1:45!  And while it isn’t an easy transition, she handles it with ease, and does GREAT at both of her events.  We are so excited to watch her get better and better at soccer (she scored a great goal this week!), and she has always impressed us with her love of ballet.

Hopefully everyone is able to enjoy their Saturday mornings as much as we do…and while they’re extremely hectic – they are some of our favorite times of the week!

Take care,
Love – MJCE&CJ

    By the way – the picture of Cameron at the top of this post is probably my favorite picture I’ve taken of him in years. I cannot believe how mature he looks – almost as if he drove himself to the game! Ugh…what a great kid he has become. :)

    I was thinking the same thing about that picture of Cameron. He truly is growing up. It was quite a shock to see him look “older”. The change in the 5 1/2 months since I have seen the kiddos is amazing. What wonderful pictures. Ellie is so graceful in ballet and so focused in soccer. Thanks for sharing them. I will be out there soon! Warning or promise?????
    Love, Mom

    Great to see the kiddo’s loving a great game and Cam looks so good in this picture. And the grace that Ellie is showing! What a wonderful family!
