Our alarm went off this morning at 7:00 and after 2 snooze button pushes - we were UP!!
No coffee, just got dressed and staggered out to the car.
We left the house shortly after 8:00 and the game started at 9:00.
We were still slightly asleep!
Harrison was the star of the show making 7 goalies!!!
Every time he made one, he would get so excited and run over to the sidelines to celebrate!
Logan loves to play but I don't think this will be her favorite sport.
She LOVES gymnastics!
I love Kailey's poses here! It was a cold March morning but she seemed to have a good time.
She has a good kick!
Trystan is our surprise athlete!!
Who KNEW this little princess could play soccer??
All in all, I was totally impressed with what Coach Mike has taught them so far!
They may not 'get' everything about the game, but they are learning that five players should be on the field from each team. They know which goal is theirs and they know what out of bounds mean.
The little redhead on the right is adorable!
He is nearly a full year younger than the others but he scored a goal!
He would also walk off the field to come over and pat Trystan's hair. Or give Logan a hug.
Or take his shoes, shin guard, and socks off to scratch his foot. We laughed and hollered and cheered the team on and even clapped when the other team scored. It was a lot of fun!
They only play for 30 minutes so it was over in no time!
There are 9 players on the team so the quads make up just about half of it!
Good JOB, Amber and Mike!!
Little video snippets of this morning's soccer game!
Did I mention it was EARLY???
But you have to admit - they were cute!!
After the game, we went in search of hot coffee and a good breakfast!
We tried Mama's Daughter and the wait was out the door. We tried The Egg and I - same thing.
Then we drove all the way back to Irving and into IHOP - REALLY long wait!!
Just as we decided to come home and cook our own breakfast, I thought about The Corner Bakery and we went right in and sat right down! Win! WIN!!
We even sat with our coffee and read the paper after we finished eating.
We hardly ever read a paper anymore!
Then we came home, put on our comfy clothes and went back to bed where we stayed all afternoon!
I talked to Summer this afternoon and she was holding up pretty well.
Still in a fair amount of pain. They took her bandage off and unhooked her from everything except the heart monitor. She will probably sleep better now that she's not all tied up in cords.
There's a chance she might come home tomorrow. If not - Monday for sure.
After I woke up good, I started cleaning both bathrooms.
What with working outside in the yard everyday for the past week or more, the house was in dire need of a good cleaning.
I started with my bathroom.
I seriously doubt that anyone could put more debris in a tiny space than I can!!
I love my bathroom!
If you suspected that I was neurotic or, at the very least least, eccentric - now you know it to be true.
The LOVE and MOM are from the 1970's and survived the house fire of 1983.
I should have taken the hats down so your could see the old faucet knobs I hang my jewelry on.
No doors on this bathroom - just white curtains pulled across.
No much room to add another thing but I DO see an empty frame!
Louis Dean custom built a small dressing table for me with make up lights above it.
So much memorabilia in here.
It's not every one's cup of tea but this bathroom is so ME!!!
Amber told me not long ago that she admires the way we make our house fit US!
I'll tell you a little secret. Growing up we did not have access to a bathroom most of the time.
Back then we made do with an old Folger's coffee can - the metal ones that had wire rims that would cut into our bottoms if we sat down on them with all our weight. As a young 8 year old and on, I would dream about scented bars of bath soap, toothpaste and toiletries. I longed for pretty things and I dearly loved all that was feminine and lacy.
God truly does give us the desires of our hearts and, while a bathroom like mine might not be for everyone, it suits me perfectly!!
Louis Dean made it the bathroom of my dreams!
I smile every single time I go in there!
Now in the morning, as soon as I throw the covers back, I will be cleaning the master bedroom in anticipation of Summer's arrival.
Thank you all for the continued prayer support for my daughter.
It was a journey to get the diagnosis and surgery and it will be a journey to her full recovery but we are rejoicing that she WILL be making a full recovery!!
I will end tonight's journal with the video that wouldn't load up last night!
Today it went on as easy as pie.
Personally, I think the prayer of a child is more powerful than just about any other.
Thank God for children who pray!!
May you be blessed to have one pray for you!
