When did this happen?

When did my daughter become the daughter that hides her face from the camera? We have always battled over me taking her picture and the crazy expressions she gives me, but when did she become the teenager who hides behind her hands? I just know that we have a rough road ahead and that attitude will only get more fierce...but I love her anyway. :)

Bradley is so embarrassed by this car, but it keeps them occupied while shopping. The downfall: at the end when the car must be abandoned there are usually lots of cries and screams which does cause quite the spectacle!

Soccer - Ava's First Game

I am officially a soccer mom! The only sport Bradley would tell my pregnant belly that Ava should never play. And she loves it!

They had their first game this past Saturday. Ava is on the light orange team which has about 11 kiddos on the team. They play on Saturday mornings for the next month and a half. Of course we have struggled with dance and cheer (even though Ava LOVES them), but with soccer, she is doing fantastic. She is out there and having a blast.

She was super-pumped to score the first goal and she even got to play goalie, which she loves. Unfortunately for her, the yellow team never made it near our goal, so most of that goalie time was spent examining the ground. So funny to watch. I loved watching her play and it was so fun to see the excitement on her face.
