Ashton and Hadleigh both ended their spring travel soccer games in June. They had a fun season, but it was nice to have July off. They have been playing soccer since the beginning of last August. Our local recreational league starts after August 1st and ends in October. They started indoor soccer right away and that went until March, and then they joined the outdoor travel team. It ended the very end of June. We just started practices for the Fall session this past week for our rec league and the travel league, so we are back at it again. I'm hoping to take the 1st session of indoor off, but we'll see if that's possible. I enjoy it, but I have to admit that having a couple weeks of nothing in July has been heavenly! It's nice to just have a night of no practices or no running around.
I love miscellaneous photos so much. They really capture the kids' personalities and just random fun.
Sawyer is my kid that can sleep anywhere. He loves to sleep and gets tired easily. I sometimes worry about it, but he's always been this way, so I guess it's his normal. lol
I found Hadleigh outside playing after a rain in her sweatshirt, rain boots and Daisy Red Ryder safety glasses.
Don't be jealous of my wooden sidewalk. lol
When we ripped the rotten porch off of the house a couple of years ago, we took out the sidewalk too.
This is our temporary solution, but it seems to be a longer temporary than I was hoping.
Hadleigh went to volleyball camp over the summer. It was a week long and put on by the high school volleyball team. She really enjoyed it.
I couldn't see her face from where I was, but you can see her serving.
Hadleigh and her friend on the ground after they made their serves over the net. They were able to lay there and watch the other girls.
Hadleigh's friend had her kids party at a local historic mansion. This mansion is a restaurant and they do a lot of themed events and they host weddings. The girls had a tea party with their American Girl dolls. It was so cute! They all dressed up and their dolls dressed up. She had so much fun and the little girl's grandma made each girl attending the party a crocheted outfit for their doll, and they each got a purse filled with goodies. What an adorable idea!
Hadleigh's June horse show. This was on my 35th birthday. We had her show and then we had to leave there and rush to an away travel soccer game. It was her last game.
They attended VBS at the church down the road from us. We had to cancel our VBS this year at the last minute due to building repairs, so I'm glad they were able to make one VBS at least.
This was the last day and they did a little bit of singing for us.
After the last day of VBS, my friend Vicki had us over to swim. The kids had so much fun and Vicki and I hung out on the deck chatting. While the kids were playing a baby bird flew onto their deck railing. It was adorable!
We had a busy, but fun June.
