Reasons why I haven't updated in almost forever: yard demo, soccer, full time work, and life. Not that I'm just complaining - just explaining :)
Yard demo... pretty self explanatory. We've started tearing up the back yard so we can re-do it. As of today, the patio is gone, stairs are gone, fence is down, the half of the yard closest to the house has been rototilled, and everything for the underground sprinkling has been bought. Here's the plan - putting in a wooden platform where the cement patio used to be. New stairs coming down from the sliding doors onto the platform. Underground sprinklers installed and then sod brought in for the yard that's closest to the house. The rest of the yard is going to have seed thrown down and then weed and feed. We'll see what happens with that...
Soccer... Joshua is doing soccer again. This is his 4th season playing - first year with WLYSC. We're REALLY happy with his coaches - they are actually the varsity coaches, so I feel like he's really learning at practice. He's AMAZING on defense, ok as a forward and not so great as a goalie, lol - but he tries really hard. We'll be practicing with him in the net though, for sure! Games are on Saturdays which means I have missed the last few weeks of yoga class, but that's another topic :)
Full time... I was offered a promotion at work. Yay for that! I've not worked full time since I was pregnant with Joshua, so it's a little of an adjustment. Luckily, the kids are handling it well and Rick and I are committed to making it work (I'm salary now, so it's WAY worth it!). I won't lie though - I've been a 'lil on the tired side lately.
A 'lil thing called life... Logan had Preschool Round Up today, I can't really believe it! He is going to school 4 days a week and it's going to be awesome for him. He BLEW through the assessments they had him do today - even I was impressed with how great he did. Funny thing, though.... it was pretty long and extensive, and when he decided he was done, he was D-O-N-E, lol. Even the teacher noticed it and mentioned it :)
I'm having a Partylite party/brunch on Saturday morning - I'm looking forward to some quality time with my girlfriends. There's just something about candles and brunch that suits me oh so well!
I guess I'll close this post out with some pics of soccer Josh this year and the backyard demo... I haven't brought out the camera to get the pics from the rototilling, but I'll get to that later.
