Last Saturday was our first soccer game. For those of you that know us our older girls started playing soccer when Kami was six and Meghan was 5. We played soccer all the way though High School and Kami played four years for UCSD and won two Division II Championships. Mike and I both coached and played. Mike became the Head of both our local AYSO and eventually the head of the local "club" team. We said that when we adopted we were never going back to play soccer and we hoped that our daughters would develop a love for the cello.
As you can see that did not last long. Here are Emma and Meilynn before their very first soccer game.
This is their game look!
The Soccer Banner, I think someone is color blind. We are the Pink Unicorns. Do you think that those shirts are pink?
Well, this is what they really looked like in the game. They stood next to each other and wouldn't do a thing. And when Meilynn subbed out, Emma cried for her sister to come back. And just when I thought that Emma might do something, she was running to the sideline to tell me that she needed a hug. We will see how tomorrow goes. Cello here we come!
A play-dough cake they made for Lily. Emma cannot stop talking about her. She packs little bags of toys that she is saving for Lily. Today she asked me if when we went to China to get Lily, if we could also get a baby.
Lily's care package I am working on. Nuts and chocolates for the care takers, tooth brushes for the older kids, stickers to share. Crayons, pens, glow bracelets, a bunny to snuggle, hair things, some Hello Kitty treats a dress and a Dora press light.
I am really trying to start doing a letter a week. This week is Dd week. One of our activities was to form cookies out of cookie Dough. Daddy also took them for donuts.
