Fall Fun

Seriously, I've been really, really bad about posting!
Ben tried so hard to help Katie onto the pumpkin for a good picture...sadly, this was the best of the bunch!

Rainy day paint project in the garage...

Tonight Ben's team, the Aftershock (orange) played the ever-talented Wildfire (red). Under 6 soccer with no goalies has never seen such a battle. The duel, of course, ended in a tie. But Ben scored the first goal...woohoo!!

Playing no avail.

Big kick!

The ending high fives may have been his favorite part (:

Back to School

Today is Ben's first day of Pre-K and he was SO excited to go! Uniform? Check. Supplies? Check. Getting his backpack on the right way? We're getting there...

Hooray for Us!

To celebrate being in our house and having our very own yard for one whole year, we made outside Twister and a baseball diamond in the back yard...ahhhh, the wonders of spray paint!

And...both kids loved it!

Mommy's Birthday

Ben and Katie made awesome birthday cards for me and the World's Best Ice Cream Cake...

Note that Katie has switched her crayoning hand!


It was also the world's messiest cake...Ben had to take his shirt off during dessert!

Gone Bananas

And we're back, after a four-month-hiatus! We made FAB frozen bananas last weekend and I'm hating myself for taking so long to make them...
Step One: freeze the bananas

Step Two: get your toppings ready (chocolate chips, graham crackers, toasted coconut)

Step Three: label so no one can steal your FAB frozen banana

Step Four: enjoy while little sis naps

Step Five: catch up with the boys!

Bath-Time Fun...oh how they'll hate me one day!

Practicing the soccer moves at home

So intense...

Multi-tasking and making a fashion statement while she's at it

Two goalies

Ben's Soccer Camp

Ben is in a month-long sports camp where they do a different sport each week...last week was his first class and it was soccer, his fave. Today was golf, but no pics...we'll do better next week!
The butterfly stretch, that Ben now makes us do whenever we put on our shoes.

Green team!

The world's tiniest goal...

Katie was SO desperate to join in!

The Graus made a pilgrimage to Athens! Four kids under five under our roof in the rain...and we're all still recovering.
