Swim, Soccer, and Birthday!!

Today is my 31st Birthday! Last year turning 30 was really hard for me. This year I am embracing my age. I am happy to be 31. If I wasn't I wouldn't be where I am in life today. With my hubby, and 3 kiddos. I love being a wife and mom, it is my greatest joy. I have the greatest husband who is so good to me and tells me how much he adores me every day. I have 3 kids who are so sweet and keep me laughing and on my toes. I love being a big sister, and have always tried to be a good example. I love being a daughter, teacher, and all the many other rolls I play. I love trying to be the best I can be. Some days I fall way short, but I do try. Some days are definately harder than others. : )
Without living these 31 years I wouldn't be who I am, I wouldn't have the relationships I do. I am so blessed to have so many great people in my life. Whether you play a large or small part in my everyday life, I am grateful for all my family and friends. I am ready to embrace a new year, and am looking forward with excitement. I am excited to be 31!! (did I just say that? hahaha)

(Jaylee bought me the birthday hat and insisted I wear it. She was so excited that I really did. She is so cute. Love her)

EJ started soccer this week. His team is the Red Razors. He has been so excited and driving me bonkers about when soccer is. We are so happy it is finally here. He is playing with his friend Kaden, and Kaden's dad is the coach. His coach is so cute, and after one practice and game EJ LOVES him. He has a patch system for the kids to earn different patches to put on the back of their jerseys. EJ is trying to figure out how to earn them all. He scored his first goal at the first game. He was so cute and so excited! He was aggressive, and trying hard the whole time. Can't wait for the next 6 games. woo hoo! Go EJ!!

This week we also did more swim lessons. This time it was for Jett. My Mom and sister did private lessons for Sheryl's grand daughter Ava and Ali's daughter Davis, and of course Jett. It was so cute and so fun. They all did well in the water and improved soooo much over the four days. Some cute kids. After swim they would get popscicles. yum.

Happy Birthday! I think the 30s are the best years so far! Lily is playing soccer this year. Her first game is Wednesday. I can't wait to watch! After watching her practice I think she could use some lessons on how to be aggressive, she is way too polite.
