Soccer Time!

Soccer started up for Mayli and Katelyn. They enjoy it so much and had lots of fun at their games on Saturday.
Here is Mayli after playing hard! She did so great! She made 5 goals and almost made 6 but at the last second passed it over to her teammate who was right next to her so her teammate could make a goal. That is so Mayli always thinking of others! She had so much fun. All the parents kept asking if she's ever played before. She hasn't but she sure did great! She also was so fun to watch running after the ball. She didn't really run she leaped everywhere. So graceful even on the soccer field! WAY TO GO MAY!!!

She really likes her coach and assistant coach. She kept giving them high fives during the game especially after she would make a goal!
Celebrating after she made a goal! Yay Mayli!

Here is a far away view of her making one of the goals.

Katelyn has a great team with fun coaches too! She had so much fun playing but was getting pretty hot after the first half. It was at least 95 degrees out there. She played hard when she was in and was always up with the ball when it was her teams turn. She did great! Her team made 3 goals and they all worked so hard! WAY TO GO KATE!!!

Here is Kate kicking the ball.

Katelyn talking to one of her coaches about what she needed to do. She was a great listener and stayed in the positions she was told to play in.
We are excited for the rest of the games! Way to go girlies! Love you!

Juliet is 6 Months Old!

Juliet turned 6 months old on July 28, 2011. She is getting so big and we are so lucky to have her in our family. She loves to laugh and smile. She is so curious about everything and wants to explore whatever she finds.

Stats for this month:
Weight: 15.4 pounds
Height: 26 inches
Head: can't find my paper will update later

She is growing up so fast. She loves to smile and laughs all the time. She loves to 'talk' and makes lots of noise. She had a fun 6th month. We celebrated lots of birthdays, she stayed in a hotel for the first time, tried lots of new fruits and vegetables, she learned how to hold a bottle, got to celebrate Independence Day and loved the fireworks, rolled all over the place, had another ear infection, went to a family reunion and got sunburned (I really did try to keep her covered), learned she loves sleeping on her tummy, and tried a sucker for the first time thanks to her sisters. She loves to play with toys and rolls everywhere trying to get things. She is so much fun!
Here she is holding her bottle

Here she is rolling over, which is her favorite thing to do right now! We love you Jewels! You are a joy in our lives!

Weekend with Matt and Michelle

Where did July go???? It was a crazy whirlwind of a month! One weekend Matt and Michelle came to visit us all the way from Hong Kong. We were so happy to see them! We had such a fun weekend. We met up and played at a park.

Everyone had so much fun! We all stayed at a hotel that night and got to go swimming. The kids had so much fun!
The next morning Matt and Amanda ran a half marathon. We went to go cheer them on. They did so great! YAY!!!
We hung around at the park for a little bit after then race and then we headed to the Hill Aerospace Museum. It is always fun to go there.
After the museum we headed out to Grandma and Papa's to have some more fun and celebrate all the July birthdays. Here is Aunt Michelle with Jewels.

Michelle, Sara, and me. I absolutely these ladies!!!! We have so much fun together! :)
