Noah's First soccer game

Here is a picture of the four kids on Noah's soccer team, him included. They play 3 on 3 and so we only have one sub to relieve them when they get tired or hurt. It was beautiful this morning and they had a great time playing.

Noah running around the field. They did pretty well because they didn't just all clump up.

Noah's famous pose of hands in the pockets. Kick back and ready to rock. The Ref had to ask Noah not to slide kick the ball/players. I told the ref that we have only had 2 practices and that I haven't taught him that. He was laughing.

Today they all complained of the hot weather and tomorrow they will all be complaining of the rain. Never happy. They had a great first game and they won 10-1. Good job Cheetah's!

Oh to Fridays!

So for the past year, I have committed myself to running a men's Bible study on my day off (Fridays) which allows me the opportunity to get up at 4:30. I meet 4 other guys and we make a big breakfast between 5-6 and at 6:00 a.m., we have anywhere from 14-25 guys come. It was a stretch at first to get up on my day off, but now I love it. The hardest part is actually getting to bed on time on Thursday night and rolling out of bed on Friday mornings. Now that the stage is partially set, the boys' and I sent Rebecca away for four days to San Diego to see her good friend, Stacy, so she could have some relaxation time and fun. Good birthday gift idea. Well, this meant that I had to stay home on Friday morning and I couldn't run the Bible study and cook. I couldn't leave the kids you know. So, low and behold, this morning at 4:30 on the nose, Jonah calls out stating that he needs to use the bathroom and he was scared to walk there himself. Afterwards, Jonah asked to crawl in my bed which just means that he shakes, turns, wiggles, jerks, bounces, coughs, snorts, and finally says, I can't sleep. All to say that I have now been up since 4:30, not cooking breakfast for 20 guys, but laying in bed longing for the time when I can actually sleep in on a Friday morning. I just don't think it's in the cards for me. So, here I sit bloggging at 5:18 in the morning, wondering what the rest of the day is going to be like. So here is to all of you attending Bible study this morning, "I'm up!!!!" The question is, "What else can I get done this early in the morning, besides starting the coffee maker? To all of you out there that are up earlier than you had hoped this morning, I raise a cup of joe in your honor.
