Do you know the ice cream man...

My kids just met him for the first time. 

My kids never knew what the yellow topped, Muffin Man blaring, slow driving van was until this year.
It was quite nice never having to look for money to give the little brats, but my precious neighbor girls had to tell these kids what this magical mystery bus is all about.  

As reluctant as I was...

... it made my mommy heart so happy.

Who doesn't love reliving their happy childhood memories with their own children!

truth be told:  I was horribly sick that day, tried not to pass out while I found money or paid the creepy guy,  and then had to lay down in the grass while they ate the drippy messes outside. Only for me to wake look up after a moment... to see Cora somewhere she shouldn't have been. 
Oh, the joys of motherhood!

*I'm behind because we are making some life changes.  I hope to sit down and get some updates on here soon.

1st Soccer game

This was the year... Josiah asked to play an organized sport.  I knew the day would come, and I was definitely not in a hurry.  

However, It is super cute to see him so excited and energetic.  I was super proud of my little man.
He made 3 goals in his first game... no goalies in this league ;)
He tried hard, "hustled"( I never liked hearing that word in softball), and he was fairly aggressive (another word I didn't like). 

 taking time to wave to mom
  I don't know what this is about because I know zero about soccer.

It was freezing the first game.

I am obviously a rookie mom.
I don't own a fold out chair, ear muffs, or know how to layer blankets so that the chair becomes some sort of wind blocking, heat generating igloo.  

Nope, instead I'm standing, more like hopping in place hoping to generate heat, with an extra coat wrapped around my head to keep the wind out of my ears. 

Oh well, someday I'll be comfortably hunkered down in my own igloo and look across the field at the coat wrapped kangaroo and think... Rookie.

Milk googles

Mom put these in the kid's Easter basket... brilliant.

We had so much fun them!
