Evan’s Summer Wish List: British Soccer Camp

This post about British Soccer Camp is one such post.

What does Evan want to be when he grows up? A soccer player.

That’s why I’m not at all surprised when he was full of delight when I asked him if he’d be interested in spending a week of his summer focused on soccer skills. I didn’t even have to bribe him with “you’ll get to ride to work with Mommy and maybe we’ll stop for coffee one or two days”, because he’s just that into soccer. Score. keep reading

A Thankful Birthday

arievan2016

Today we celebrated The Bigs, a thankful birthday party filled with food, fun, and family. Just the way we like it.

With an October birthday for Arianna and a December birthday for Evan, we try to go with the middle road and celebrate both in November. While it’s confusing for Evan in December, it’s a nice way to separate his day from the holiday hustle and bustle. keep reading

Super Wings

(We received Super Wings in exchange for this post.)

Raise your hand if you can rattle off the name of all the shows your kids watch. Mine is not raised. You see, I didn’t know that Evan was into Super Wings until I brought him home some figurines and asked him if he wanted to check out the app. He looked at me like I was on something, like why don’t you know I like them?!?! keep reading

Back to School 2016

back to school 2016

No idea how this happened, but the Bigs have made it through eight days of school already. Before things become like Ari’s last day of first grade, we present the official back to school 2016 photos!

Okay, who stole our babies and told them it was okay to grow up and into a Kindergartner and Second Grader? I mean seriously. Thank goodness they think this is funny. keep reading

Evan and His Shoes

Oh, Evan and his shoes. Somehow, the boy has grown out of shoes overnight. Like from a size 11 to needing a size 13 all of the sudden.

And of course, none of the shoes we have in the house were his size except for his soccer cleats.

And of course, none of the shoes at the store were going to be just right, either. keep reading

First Friday

First Friday

Tonight started a new summertime tradition for the kids and me – First Friday. It’s an event local to us up here in Armstrong County, a food truck roundup on the first Friday of every month in the summer.

We’re pretty lucky to have some really motivated business people in our area. The event was brought together by some of our favorite food truck owners in hopes to bring the community out and supporting local small businesses. keep reading
