More Soccer Fun

That's right... you are going to have to endure soccer tales and pictures through the month of May. They are exciting times around here.

Reese made her first goal! I had to turn the picture into black & white because in color, it was just too blurry. Hey, it's difficult to take a steady shot when you are jumping up and down screaming.

This is how David and the younger tots chose to pass the time while Reese was getting her team pictures taken. I kept yelling, "NOT SO HIGH!!" but then would snap a quick picture on the sly.


Everybody now...I believe I can fly...I believe I can touch the sky... or my personal favorite...You raise me up...when I am on your shoulders.... Good luck getting through the rest of the day without humming either one of those tunes.

Soccer Season

Reese's first soccer season has begun. She is so excited! Everytime she gets her gear on she asks the nearest person to hit her in the shins...harder...



I lined up a shot of Reese and this little girl popped up out of nowhere.

All About the Ears

Reese is wanting to get her ears pierced. But not in an annoying, whiny way. Every now and then, she will just casually mention that one of her little friends has their ears pierced then watch for my reaction.

Tonight, after church, we were cozied up in the chair together watching Idol Gives Back and she chose to tell me that Maddie, a little girl in her choir, has her ears pierced.

Me: "Oh really?".

Reese: "Yep and know what?"

Me: "What?"

Reese: "She said it didn't hurt."

Me: "Oh, well that's good."

We went on to discuss some other things yet our conversation somehow wound back around to pierced ears. I was talking about when I got mine pierced and was trying to think back to how old I was.

"Six?" Reese asked hopefully.

Me: ""

I thought that was the end of it. We continued watching the Idol special. They show heart wrenching stories of children in Africa and other countries dying everyday all because they don't have a $10 mosquito net. She was asking a lot of questions about those little children and cast sideways glances my way to see if I was crying.

They also showed some stories of the thousands of families who lost all they owned in Hurricane Katrina. Their homes, all their memories, everything. The last little girl on that segment quietly said, "I just want to go home...."

Reese's one comment on that story...."She has her ears pierced."
