Oct.7, 2007

This weekend went by way too fast.Me, L.E., Grandma , Annie and Reagan went to visit the witches at Gardner Village. The girls loved all the pumpkins and fun fall decor. Reagan loved the witch riding a bike although I think she was a bit freaked out at first. Seeing the witch suspended in mid air while peddaling would be a scary sight at that age. L.E. was even happy this year to have her picture taken next to the witches... a big step from previous visits which usually ended in tears of fright. Even though I am not excited for cold weather, Fall is my favorite season. The leaves on the mountains are beautiful this year. We can't wait for Halloween!
L.E. has been busy the last few weeks playing soccer for the first time. She has her last game next week... her team has come a very long way. I think the first two weeks the other teams scored about 10 goals to our one, even though our team actually may have helped them a bit...oops. They have learned their directions, its not the end of the world to fall down, and they can "take one for the team" (or several). They are still learning that once the ball goes out of bounds they can stop play, ( although the parents enjoy then stilll chasing the ball through our chairs) they should wait for timeouts to get drinks instead of mid play,and to leave the dollie on the sideline.L.E. has scored two goals this season and wanted to make sure everyone saw it each time.
The rest of the weekend we moslty hung out at mom and dads, watched conferene and ate a lot of food. It was fun to have Annie and Mathew dowm all weekend and for Drew to make his occasional appearances. Of course we made it to Grandma Wynns for usual conference Sunday visit. It's just not the same with some of you so far away.
