Soccer Goals, Football Games, Parties, Presents, Candles, Cake, and Remembering!

As always, my little Super Heroes kept me extremely busy this weekend!  Friday evening, the boys went to the Milford Football Game with "Big D" (that's what they call my dad!).  They were so excited!  Cole was really into the game but Jackson was into how many friends he could spot in the stands!

Saturday morning we woke up and got ready for Jackson's first soccer game.  He was so excited...he's been looking forward to soccer since last spring!  He informed me that it was a pretty big deal since, "He was the first in our family to play soccer!". :)  Let's just say if you haven't ever watched 5 and 6 year old kids play soccer, you really need to!  I think I smiled more during the game than I ever have before!  During the game, I witnessed  a little boy stop and pick a dandelion for his mom...a little girl try and throw the ball in bounds but actually throw it behind her head (twice!)...a boy holler "Mom that was me!" when he made a goal...a little girl stop the coach mid game and ask for a treat...oh and the best part...Jackson scored 4 goals!!!!  Jackson was so proud and such a little hustler!  Can't wait to watch him next week!

Saturday was also Cole's 8th birthday!  Wow...where has the time gone!  I remember that day as if it were yesterday!  I'm pretty sure I never knew true love until that day!  He makes being a Mommy the easiest and most rewarding job in the world.  Not only is he handsome, but he is smart, funny, sensitive, and sweet!  He is an awesome big brother to his baby sister and he loves his brother...well most of the time! :)  He always has a hug for me and loves helping Brian with anything outside!

We had a Husker Party for Cole since the game was on...and he sure had fun!  He loves football food and he even got to have red cake!  (Thanks Grammy!)  The Huskers won so it was the perfect ending to a perfect day!

Today is September 11th so I can't write without saying a big "Thank You" to all of the men and women who serve our country whether it be the military, firemen, police officers, or paramedics.  10 years ago we all realized how important these people are to us and I pray we never forget!  One of my friends from church has a husband who is in Afghanistan right now and she and her 2 year old twin boys are missing their husband/daddy while he is serving our country.  Let's say a prayer for all the families who were affected 10 years ago and also today!

God Bless You All!
