Aidan's trip and a little Pax

I found this picture online of Aidan and the two other boys from Colorado Springs who made the team that went to California last weekend.  It's a short article and if you'd like to see it click here.

He had a great time and made a lot of friends!  Their team tied the Texas team but lost to the California teams :(

I haven't shared pictures in a while so here's a few of Paxton.  Above - he's watching Mickey once he's ready for school.  Below - he's wearing Aidan's hat and looking cute!

Been way too long...

On top of finishing the school year, finishing the soccer season, Josh going back to work, me trying to keep up at work while only working half the time so that I can take care of the boys, I was sick!  Not only did I get some virus that attacked my throat but Pax gave me a stomach flu that Tristan and Aidan got later the same day.  It has been tough around here.

I have to share that Aidan missed his last day of school to fly to California!  He was selected to play for the State of CO at Ventura College!  Here is a part of the email that we got:

Coach Ward and his staff have been challenged with the task of selecting a team from the current player pool to attend this tournament. Those players who are listed below have been selected at this time to represent Colorado in the ’00 age group for this tournament.  Below is the list invited to participate in the PCI.
So not only was he selected but he was the first player listed and it was not done alphabetically!  I am so excited for him!  They have already played their first game and tied it 3-3 against Texas.  They play Southern Cali next which will be tough.
I hate not being there with him but Josh and I are getting some much needed yard work done and I'm trying to recover from everything in the first paragraph!

State Cup Semi-Finals

I am so proud to share that both Tristan and Aidan's soccer teams will be playing tomorrow in CO's State Cup Semi-Finals!  This is the highest level of soccer for their ages.  Their teams are both underdogs for this game so it will be a challenge but I'm very excited for them.

You can watch the games online for free at  Tristan plays at 9:00 a.m. Mountain time.  His game is Pride Predator 99 Boys vs. Rush Nike on field 21.  He's #8.  Aidan's game is at 11:45 a.m. Mountain time on field 18.  His game is Pride Predator 00 Boys vs Real National and he's #15.

Who knows - you might even see me going crazy on the sideline!
