Life as we know!

Our life is revolving around this right now. It's crazy busy, and we are rarely home during the week, and sometimes it's hard to get it all accomplished (dinner, homework, housework, etc), but I wouldn't trade it. The kids are learning so much, and BayLea, at least, is loving every minute of it. Breccan right now isn't too sure. But man, he's a good player! They both are. And I love to watch them play.
 The photos of Breccan in this post was during a Fire FC WSSL round robin scrimmages where they played four 30 minute games back to back. Two hours straight of soccer. Breccan was goalie in the above picture. He had several scores against him, but he also caught several, and they were hard could hear the thump as it hit his chest.
 Here Bay is just at practice, but is scrimmaging against the other United team. This is her buddy, Isabel, who was her pre-k friend, and they stayed in touch for several years after pre-k, then Isabel showed up on her Dandelion team a couple years after that. Now they are both playing United, but are on opposite teams. That's okay; they practice together a lot.
 Here is BayLea driving it down the field, which resulted in a goal! Yay my girl!

 Breccan also played against the girl WSSL teams. Those girls are good, and they gave Breccan's team a run for the money.

 BayLea's coach is really nice, and we loved her coaching style. She told us in the parent meeting that the only reason a girl may be benched is if they "pull attitude, or if they decide to have a fit and yell at the other players or the ref". I told BayLea this, to which she responded, "I would NEVER do that!" which I knew...I really think this is going to be so good for her.
They do lots of running activities, and lots of stretches and strength building.
