Isaac nearly scored a goal here. Notice his smile and wave at the camera. He did score later in the game.

A month ago, Isaac stuck a Q-tip in his ear and ruptured his ear drum. He has a hole 50% of the size of the ear drum. He goes in Friday so they can put a skin graft over the hole to stimulate regrowth. It is outpatient surgery but he will go under a general anesthetic (since he won't sit still).

At ISU they were having "Welcome Back to School" activities. Because Rob works in Student Services, they set up wheelchair races in the quad to create some interest. Rob was undefeated in all his races...until Emma came along! The kids had a fun time.
It's a lot harder getting a wheelchair up the ramp than you would think.
Isaac getting ready to kick the ball off.
Cosette playing "Sweeper" and dancing to her own music.


This is in here because we decided to go camping for Labor Day. Since we chose our campground so late, we got the leftover spot. I don't think we did too badly, although the wind was atrocious!! The kids enjoyed themselves.

Today was a real test of patience for Isaac and Cosette as it was the first day they got to play soccer on a team in a real game. Neither could wait for game time and it just about drive us bonkers.

They play at the same sets of fields and at the same time so we had to split time between them switching half way through. While Rob was cheering for Isaac he got a break away goal. Isaac was by far the toughest kid on the field and the fastest so he wound up his leg and kicked the ball as hard as he could, passed all the other kids racing for the ball and finished it off with a strong kick into the net... WAY TO GO ISAAC. He gave high fives to the coach and looked over at Rob who was beaming ear to ear and gave a enthusiastic thumbs up. He did a similar kick later on that landed right in front of the goal and his teammate tapped it in for another score.

Cosette also had lots of fun as she got in lots of kicks, got to do a throw in, a corner kick, and play goalie. The rest of the day was filled with chatter about this or that from soccer. Oh and of course "I scored a point" a few hundred times.

We are so excited the kids enjoy everything they do.

First Week of School

Ethan started preschool this year. He has a late birthday and will actually have three years of preschool. He's so excited!!
Here is breakfast on Cosette's first day of school. She starts at 7:55am so it means an early morning for everyone. She was awake at 6am wanting to get ready for school. How long will this last?
