Well, apparently I was a bit tired after I posted the last few sets of pictures, because I erased the posts that went with them. So.... Here is TAKE 2 of Daniel's Birthday, Fiesta Run, and More Soccer!
Daniel's 5th Birthday-My little guy, last born, sweet angel turned 5 on September 23rd. He started the day by having chocolate chip waffles and playing his new Nintendo DS. Then it was off to school for a field trip to Storyland/Rotary Park. This was his first ride on a bus too! We had a blast! Then he got to choose where he wanted to eat for dinner that night, followed by a party with friends and a bounce house a few days later. I know I have said it before, but "where does the time go?" It seems like they were just little babies...
We were privileged to run in the Reedley Fiesta Run on Saturday, October 10th, 2009 and raise money for WIGU (When I Grow Up). WIGU is a non-profit organization created by our church to raise money for children around the world. We were challenged to get 100 people to participate and raise $100 each. At last count there were 143 people from Redeemer's Church who ran (still waiting to hear how much we raised! Stay tuned) and it was truly amazing to see kids and adults, all walking and running to help others who are less fortunate. For more information, check out www.reedemerschurch.com click on "Videos" on the left hand side of the page and then scroll down to WIGU. Thanks so much to all of you who sponsored us in the run.
Yes...More soccer pictures. We are having a great season. Every other year the girls are on the same team. And other than 1 year that my friend Kate and I coached (or was it two?), they have had the best coaches-Josh and Orlando. They know the game, are naturals at working with children, and are great role models for both the kids and the parents. Go Knights!
Daniel plays on the Blazers and also has a great coach who is patient, enthusiastic and always encouraging. I love that at the end of the game he brings the kids in for a cheer, shakes hands with the other team, and then reminds the kids to "use your manners." Thanks Coach Aubrey.
