Long Overdue Update!

Juliana started first grade last Tuesday! I probably should have updated sooner but frankly I've been enjoying the free time in the mornings. After school is a bit hectic however. We now have soccer practices two days a week (with Saturday games) and ballet once a week. On the afternoons we're at home there is much running up and down the street between the neighbor kids' house. Juliana loves to play with her friend Bella, but I think she has a little crush on Bella's older brother Eli. (I know. I don't want to think about it.) I start my own dance class again tonight so the schedule is filling up even more.


Ava is doing marvelous on the potty still! She wears a pull-up to bed at night but all day she wears her Tinkerbell or Curious George underwear with only a few accidents this past week. She is so proud. Of course, she loves the reaction she gets from us when she goes on the potty so that means she wants to go all the time. Let's just say I've been logging a lot of time in the bathroom with her. I'll take that over diapers though!

Juliana had her first soccer game this past Saturday. I have to say that I really love to watch the kids play. I'm so glad we found a team for her again this year.



Her team- the Sunfish- won 7 to 5! We have a soccer prodigy on our team that scored six of the team's seven goals. It was pretty fun to watch.

Lastly, I have to share with you the girls latest favorite toys in the house. Juliana got some toys from The Littlest Pet Shop collection for her birthday and we must bring them everywhere now. So far, Juli has named two of them.

I present to you, John:

And Lindsay Lohan:

Yes, my daughter has named a little toy dog after the actress and notorious Hollywood party girl, Lindsay Lohan. God help us. She claims that she heard the name on the Disney Channel and liked it. Now, I love the movie "Mean Girls" as much as the next person, but for some reason when I hear my two year old squealing "I love you Linsey Ho-han!" it sends a weird shiver up my spine.

And there you have it. That's what's up in our neck of the woods. I'm out.

Wow! Back-to-school is sure a busy time. Both of the girls are growing too quickly. But it's all good. :) Are you now officially to be considered a "Soccer Mom"? ;)
