singing her song
Igor at his best. She did a
great job portraying her
here's how Klaire spent the program.. thank goodness it was in airplane mode! She is an iphone expert. She is also a good sport about waiting on brother and sister!

here is Kennedy with her teacher, Mrs. Baxley at the Halloween program. Her class was supposed to dress up as Igor, Dr. Frankenstein's assistant. Daddy came up with the idea to put a pillow under her hoodie and brown pants. She hunched over really looked the part. the only hard part was that only two of ther classmates dressed up like him too.

they sang some cute songs and once again the music teachers outdid themselves. Here are some more shots of the kids singing their songs.

Scott's first year of soccer came way too fast. He played on the Bulldogs(original, I know). He played soccer a lot in the yard but was official this year at 4. Here he is running toward the ball. He did very well for his first time. Scott scored quite a bit! He was so proud. GOOOOOAAALLLLL!!! THis was his first of the season.

Once again, dad was conned into coaching. This time he recruited Terral to help him. The boys are Aaron, who turned out to be a great soccer player, Zachary, soccer is not his first love, Tyson, the best player on the team, Hudson, terrals son and scott' friend, we traded a girl for Hudson and he was well worth the trade, and Scott. These boys ended up winning all but one of their games. they played together as a team and the coaches did a good job too!

Scott and Tyson having a heart to heart with coach Sean. As Pospsy would say "Strategizing"

I am so thankful Hudson got to play on our team. He and Scott got to be close and hopefully will play together again. These two could cause some serious trouble in the years to come.

New Years

I have already broken several of my New Year's Resolutions. One, was to take more pictures, keep up with blogging better, and lots of others that I should know better than to resolve. Soo, after seeing Erin's blog book and how cool it was, I decided to catch up with my blogging.
WARNING: This will be a work in progress and take some time. But in the long run I am sure it will be worth it.

There are lots of things I want to remember. Here are a few things that I need to write down for posterity:

A conversation I had with Kennedy at Christmas time about talking to Jesus. Here's how it went:
me: Jesus can talk to us anytime.
K: Really, how?
me: Well, we don't always hear His voice out loud or hear his voice at all. Sometimes he talks to us through the Bible, other people, or circumstances.(yes, she understands that word)
K:oh, like when he talks to me when the wind whistles through the trees. (yes, completely HER words)
me; yes, K what does he say to you?
K: Jesus tells me He is proud of me for wanting to tell people about Him.

This made me so proud. At times, I wonder how we as parents are supposed to instill the teachings of Jesus in our children exactly. Well, sometimes I focus on us too much. Jesus will lead and show us and our children those teachings. Kennedy is such a sensitive spirit. I am so proud of her desire to do what's right.I hope it continues throughout her life.

Today, Klaire sang most of her alphabet. I have been so terrible about documenting things that she has done. Her fun personality makes me laugh on a daily basis. I also want to pull my hair out on some days because she does such different things than my other two. She is so good to go with the flow but when she has had enough, she get enough.

Scott had surgery for his ears on Tuesday. I did not get pictures because I didn't take my camera to the hospital. He did great. They put in T tubes because this is his third set. His chronic ear infections require this action. he was almost asleep when the nurses took him back. I was thankful they drs didn't have to give him the Versed. This makes them forget the procedure but also makes waking up afterwards that much harder. It makes Scott a grump. he didn't this time. He has been so good,
