Cameron's Soccer pictures...

Better late than never (especially since he has been in basketball for a few weeks - lol). Larry got to coach Cameron which turned out great! Cameron worked super hard and was awesome on the field! It was fun to watch when I wasn't chasing Ezra! Andrew did a great job of helping watch Ezra during the games.
We had a fantastic soccer party at the end of the season! Steve & Ericka made a phenomenal soccer photo book (and you know how I am with photos). They also made each of the kids trading cards that the team loved!!! It was a great end to a very fun season!

Soccer Mom

What a fun soccer season! Andrew and Cameron both worked really hard on their teams. We are so proud of them. They both were determined to hustle after the ball! I never knew that I would really live the term "soccer mom" but I do! I drive a mini-van and I love watching them play their sports. It definitely is time consuming but great to see them compete! Now on to basketball........

I have had problems uploading pictures for 2 days so I just decided to upload these ones of Andrew now and do Cameron's in a new post!

the Portland Bridges!

Ok, so I have some inspiration to do more blogging!My friend Kelly is trying to do a blog post a day in November. While I doubt I can do that, I can definitely do a lot more than I have been (2 a month).

Today I had an awesome opportunity to go on a field trip with my son Andrew's 3rd grade class. This was an all day field trip where we went to downtown Portland where they have been studying bridges. Portland has a ton of awesome bridges! We were able to get a tour by a lady who has wrote a book about the Portland bridges.

I had an awesome time with Andrew and the kids! We were able to go on the Morrison bridge and even go underneath to see how the draw bridge goes up and go in the operating booth! We also went to ODOT and saw how the keep track of traffic with over 160 cameras in the Portland metro area. The highlight for the kids was getting a chance to ride the new tram! I had a great time!

Thanks to my friends Jenny's (2 of them) for watching Ezra so I could spend the day with Andrew!

Halloween 2008

So Halloween has gone by! We had a great time! Both of the older boys had parties at school and so we split our time and went to both! We got to go trick or treating with lots of neighbors and friends! I can't believe how much candy I have to avoid now! Introducing....
Guitar Hero? More like Drum Hero!
Scary Skeleton Thomas... although right before we went trick or treating he wanted to wear last year's dog costume!
I went as my little Guitar Hero's Mom!
The "Gang" Ok, he is faster than a speeding bullet (just kidding). But it was really hard to get a picture of Oscar standing still but here he is in his cute little weiner costume!
