Soccer 2009 Transformers

"More than meets the eye!" Bradley's playing soccer again. His team is the Transformers. They started out as the Spidermen, but being typical 4 year olds, they like to change their mind. They all think they're Optimus Prime now with the blue/red uniforms. He's doing great this year!! We have our 3rd game tomorrow, but he's been getting about 3 goals each game. Watching from the bench.

He's getting toooo big. I can't believe he's going to be 5 soon.

Bradley started playing tee-ball a few weeks ago and had his first game last Saturday. He has practice once a week and then the weekly games. It's a little hectic right now because he's still in soccer for the next few weeks and we have to do a quick change to get to the soccer game after tee-ball. (I can't imagine what it's going to be like when Jake starts playing sports too!) But he has so much fun! It's fun to watch John as the tee-ball coach too. He gets all the little 3-4 year olds in their ready position and learning all the basics. Here's Jake and Bradley climbing the backstop with Grandma Flowers.

Happy Birthday Jake!

Our little Jakers is one year old! We had a small party for him on Saturday and he LOVED his cake. Really, he loved the frosting on his cake. I'll try to get some pics up soon.

No training wheels!

We took the training wheels off Bradley's bike a few weeks ago. He's so big!! But it's taken me forever to get the pics up. So here ya go! We made him wear the knee/elbow pads for awhile a few weeks ago, but not since. He just wants to get the helmet on and get out of the garage as fast as possible. Besides, the worst time he fell (because he was wiggling the wheel), he cut his chin and there were no pads there anyway.

Jakers is 11 months!

Well, he was actually 11 months about 2 weeks ago, but you know we're slow at our blog sometimes. About a half a second after the picture, he crawled away. He's really fast and is starting to take more steps. Usually he does about 3-5 steps before he drops down, but John saw him walk about 10 feet this afternoon.

It's soccer season again!

Bradley had his first soccer game of this year and WOW! So much better than last year. Last year, he loved the practice, but played probably only one quarter of a game and sat on the sidelines for the rest of the time. This morning he scored 4 goals and had a blast! He's really good at keeping himself between the ball and other players. But we need to get him to pass more.

Snack time after the game. Michael, our next door neighbor is on the same team, which is cool. They were passing to each other a little and highfiving when they scored. I also got B a slushie from the concession stand after this was taken. Bad Momma - it was about 9 in the morning and I bought him a slushie. LOL

The last two from the practice time. They do a half hour of practice, then go straight into the game. His team is called the Red Rockets.
