I am finally sitting down and enjoying some quiet. Yesterday was Zoe's last day of soccer, so she had 3 twenty minute games, a luncheon, and awards ceremony. Then we went to Jack's birthday party. Today was a crazy day at church having our last practice before our primary program next Sunday. Here are some highlights from the past 2 days.
Zoe played goalie during her last game yesterday. I must admit I was nervous for her since she wanted to be goalie while playing the white team - the team with mostly 6th graders who get many opportunities to score. Zoe chased after many missed goals, saved one goal, and missed other goals that gave the white team points. There were times when she didn't know what she was supposed to do, but overall she did well. I was proud of her for wanting to try a new position and giving it her best.
I like how Emily makes friends wherever she goes. She was bored at Zoe's games until she started playing with another girl who was nearby. She also made a friend at Jack's party and did not want to leave her new friend!
I was impressed that Emily went to the serving table by herself during the luncheon when she wanted something. In the past she would insist on someone going with her.
Kate had her first taste of cake yesterday, Mom you would have been proud! I was trying to enjoy my delicious piece of ice cream cake, but Kate was upset that I wasn't sharing, so I gave in. Eating cake is much more enjoyable when everyone is happy. :-)
I have an obsession with being in control which is why I ended up being in charge of the primary program again this year. I'm glad today's practice went well because at the end of last Sunday I was regretting my decision to be in charge.
Today was one of those Sundays where I had a list of things I needed to get done at church and a list of people I needed to talk to before I left, so it was busy. I do think I managed to get everything done that I could and of course enjoyed my meetings as well...except during Sacrament meeting when Eleanor decided to express her disapproval of Zach taking her book by biting him.
During some of Sacrament meeting I was in the Mother's room with Zach & Kate. Zach was ready for a snack, but I told him he would have to wait, that he could have a snack in his nursery class. It was so cute to hear Zach say "Thank you Mommy, thank you!" like I had just given him the best news ever!
