This little guy works really hard. The field is bigger and the kids are bigger but he runs hard and trys to get at the ball the best he can.

This little guy is just hilarious to me. I love listening to him talk. Especially when he talks like a big kid and uses his hands. I just had to capture the moment with him. The video is a bit long but at the end you get to see him show his muscles.

Andrew has a crazy spike going on and Adeline has multiple ponytails. Adeline received and option to get a free t-shirt. She already had a t-shirt and could have chosen something different but instead she took a new t-shirt so that she could give her old one to Andrew. Such a kind sister.

I get a call from my friend Rebecca. She is asking me how I am doing. Knowing that this has been a pretty trying time for me and that I have been a bit in the dumps. As we were talking I was just being really honest in how it's been tough and how I am struggling. At that time the door bell rang and I said "Hold on Rebecca, someone is at my door and I have to hop over and see who it is". Well it was Rebecca (and her son Eli) who brought me flowers, a bag of peanut m&m's, and a clear afternoon to take me grocery shopping. Really? Does this really happen? How unbelievably sacrificial. She spent the entire afternoon pushing me around the store (with the most positive attitude) and not complaining once (even when she could hardly move the cart).
Towards the end my girlfriend Jamie also met us and pushed another cart and helped with checkout as we were rushing to get the kids on time from school. Two great friends, taking time out of their days to love on me with an amazing act of service. I am unbelievably grateful....words can not express how I feel.
Eli was such a trooper. He didn't even complain when he sat in the kid seat. I'm glad we grabbed Andrew's phone so he was able to play games. And he played it the entire time :-)

It's been one of those weeks. With me down and unable to walk both kids have been sick with terrible coughs. Andrew though has been having trouble breathing and so per Grandma's very concerned request we got him an appointment to see if he has the Enterovirus.
This is my first time driving in about two weeks. First we went to my appointment and found that surgery is inevitable Then we went to Andrews appointment and then headed off to the lab for blood work and the flu/Enterovirus test. Let's just say that Andrew had the shorter end of the stick...that nose swab was awful (and they did it twice). Andrew won himself a happy meal.
Even though it's been rough taking care of sick kids and being unable to walk I must count my blessings. .. #1 I have two beautiful children to care for.....and for that I am thankful!!!
(Enterovirus came back positive. Two points for Grandma...kids will stay home until cough goes away)

Andrew was a bit nervous for this game with "bigger" kids and a bigger field but he played so good and worked so hard. His jersey is so sharp and he looks just way too grown up in this picture.
Andrew asked his coach if he could play goalie but his coach said no.....I'm sure it's because he needs Andrews speed on the field. So in this video you see Andrew jumping on the ball (something he's never done before). But I think it's because he was wanting to be like the goalie.
We won 5-2...and the boys were pretty pumped! Andrew had two very close attempts to goals and he was very proud of his hard work as were we.
