This weekend (5/26)

Nathan has a game at 10:30, on Field 2.  Bren doesn't have one at all!  What will we ever do with ourselves?  He'll be busy with Papa and the boy scouts putting flags on Veterans' graves, though, so don't think he'll be sitting around with his feet up all weekend.

Today the boys are having Field Day at school.  They're going to be sweaty, grubby messes by the time they come home!

Don't forget!

Kindergarten spring play, tomorrow!!

Tuesday, May 22 at 9:45 AM and 2:15 PM.

Also, I added a search box over on the right hand side (---------------->), so you can find old posts more easily.  Brought to you because I couldn't exactly remember what time the play was, and the search box is easier than going through all of the archives!  You're welcome :)

Time change!

No, not the thing that happens in the spring and fall and makes me grouchy and nasty for weeks.  Brendan's game this Wednesday, which was scheduled for 7:15 p.m., has been moved up to 6:15 p.m.  Since it's a weekday, I don't know if anyone was even planning to go, but if you are, now you know.

Also, it'll be in a different place than usual.  It'll be at the NC Hudson fields, located at 5661 Stow Rd, Hudson OH 44236.  The only other time I've been there was last year during spring soccer and it was a disgusting, filthy mess.  The parking lot is gravel/mud.  It's been pretty dry so far this spring, so maybe it won't be too bad, but be prepared.  I also seem to remember that it was a little hard to see from the road, so be careful.  Not sure exactly who is getting Brendan there and how, but if you are planning on coming and need help, call our cells.

This weekend (5/12)

No soccer for Brendan!  It feels like a Mother's Day miracle!  Natey has a game at 9:30, field two.  Orange shirts.  I probably won't be there because I have a physical therapy appointment.

Then, it's PARTY TIME!  Nate's carnival is saturday afternoon.   Hope to see everyone there!  Mike's trying to ruin everyone's fun and won't let me give out goldfish as prizes.  In the interests of authenticity, I'm hoping he can at least provide some carnies.

He must really think we're idiots

So, another chapter of our lives is getting ready to close.  At the beginning of next month, Brendan will be graduating from elementary school and moving on to middle school.  I know!  I can't believe it either. 

Last night, we were talking about a class field trip they're planning to make to the middle school to take a tour and have a sort of orientation session.  Brendan was doing his level best (with a completely straight face) to convince Mike and I that they only sell slushies in the cafeteria as a lunchtime beverage choice.  Mmmhmmm, sure. 

He's growing up, that's for sure.  He was in the 75th percentile for his height at a recent doctor's appointment.  Another year and he's going to be towering over me.  Next year he'll be getting up to get on a bus at a totally ridiculous hour, and will be totally responsible for remembering to do and turn in his homework, without constant reminders from his teachers.  He'll also probably discover that girls exist (lord help us all), and have to find his place to fit in with a couple hundred other kids his age.

Overall, he's such a great kid, though.  He holds open doors, carried my stuff for me while I was on crutches, still likes to curl up next to me on the couch to watch tv, and begs for 'one more minute!' at night to read when we tell him to put down the book and go to bed.  He loves spending time with his friends from Scouts, and is turning into a first rate soccer player.  Let's just say he could kick my butt!  And probably Mike's, too.  He's turning into a little gentleman* right before our eyes.

* We shall not discuss the incident this weekend where I held out my hand to catch a drip of grease from his bacon, and he wiped the bacon on my hand like a paper towel.  *sigh*

UPDATE: Date change for May play

Apparently there was a scheduling conflict for the Kindergarten play.  It's going to be rescheduled to Tuesday, May 22 at 9:45 AM and 2:15 PM

(now do you see why we need a blog?  the paper calendar is worthless around here).

This weekend (5/5)

One of Brendan's two soccer games has been cancelled.  Luckily for us it was the early one!  That eliminates a scheduling conflict for us, so yay!

That leaves:

10:30 AM - Nathan, North Canton, Field 2.

3:15 PM - Brendan, Lodi, field 30.  (If I remember correctly, that one is in the farthest corner of the complex).

If the weather's nice, hope to see everyone there!  If the weather's not nice, well, we have thermoses for hot chocolate!  Nate can show off some of his fancy footskills, and hopefully Brendan can get another goal!  And you might get to see me sans crutches.

Maybe we'll celebrate cinco de mayo.
