Quick Update

This is the last thing I should be doing right now, but I'm doing it anyways. Life is full but good right now! School has officially started and so has soccer! The very last day of summer we took the metro from North Hollywood to Union Station to check out Olvera Street. What a trip! If you would like to culturize your kids and take them out of the safe bubble we like to keep them in then I would highly suggest doing this! You can always just drive to Olvera Street but what fun is that when you can take the underground metro!? It def took me out of my comfort zone too and Danny got a kick out of that!

 This is where you would find this guy if I let him hang here all day. He says "Daddy vroom vroom" and walks to the garage door. He sure is coming into his own little person and it's been fun to see. Along with entering the tamtrum phase...which hopefully we stay on top of, otherwise we are in for it!
 Our little soccer girl...I don't recommend it. haha unless soccer is your thing, don't sign them up for AYSO if you just want to "play for fun". She's in the next division up this year and it got a lot more serious, including practice twice a week plus games every saturday. oh yeah, and can't forget to mention I got suckered into team mom. So yeah, this naturally unorganized mom has a lot on her plate right now.
 First Day of school. Not gonna lie, it's been nice having both girls in school all day. From someone who has despised a schedule and routine, I'm starting to like it....a little. ;)
That's it for now. I haven't been on instagram for a few weeks now and I'm not sure if I am returning, so I plan to blog a little more often just to be able to document our lives somehow. :)

Summer Happenings

I feel like summer is quickly coming to an end...probably because it is. In just 2 short weeks I'm gonna have 2 kids in school all day! So weird!! Summer has been good. We crammed a ton into the 2 1/2 weeks that Danny had off. We've had many great trips to the beach, most days with suprisingly good weather! We headed up to Kingsburg for a few days to celebrate Stetson's 3rd bday as well as see many of our old friends. How fun it was to see how many kids everyone has now and how old they are! It was great seeing Taylor get SO excited to see Marlene and spend time at their house. Brent and Marlene were Taylor's "adopted grandparents" as they didn't have any grandchildren of their own yet, and they took us in as if we were family. So it's cute to see, even though Taylor was too young to really remember, she still has such a thing for them! Danny and I also were able to get away for 2 nights to Palm Springs thanks to a special treat from my parents! Danny's back at work now, but we get to go to the river this upcoming weekend before school starts! And oh my am I have total anxiety about starting this school year! It's gonna be B-U-S-Y!!! And as you all know, I hate busy. So this should be interesting. Taylor starts soccer up next week, and I just found out they practice twice a week, plus 1 game a week. Plus AWANA and 3rd grade being a hard year...I know it's not much to most people, but for me it is. So I'm gonna have to try my best to be oraganized and plan ahead!! :)
