Fully back to school now.

This is the first book Evie checked out at the school library this year. I have to admit, it was a bit of a knock to my ego.  The title is "My Mom Is Trying to Ruin My Life".  The ending is good, but before we get there the Mom and Dad both get thrown in jail for the crime of trying to ruin their daughter's life because they make the daughter clean up after herself, do her homework, go to bed early, etc., etc.  So, how would you feel about your daughter bringing home this book?  Cringe-worthy?
In other news, the kids started soccer this weekend.  Originally, Luke had considered playing Lacrosse, but his team didn't make so I tried to late register him for soccer.  Unfortunately, he didn't get on a team there either.  So, Chuck had the bright idea that Luke could be a helper for George's team.  I loved the idea.  Luke's still a little luke-warm on it, but he gets to wear a matching jersey that says "Jr. Coach", and that's pretty cool!
Now, George has been looking forward to starting soccer all summer.  So, he was giddy when it was time to go play.  He even invited his Aunt Mary (who was visiting) to come see him play.  It's hard to deny such a sweet invitation.  He actually scored a goal.  He had a great time!
And Evie is back with her team that has stayed together for the last 3 years.  They are awesome!  We've moved to two practices a week, but the girls love to play and it has been so fun watchign them grow.  I can't tell you how amazing the coaches are.  They make the team work!

So, that's our weekend.  It sure was fun!
