Look at Miss Attitude!
Emma had her 1st soccer game this past Saturday. I had no clue how she was going to do but she did AWESOME! I wasn’t sure who her coach was at first so I went up to him & introduced myself and Emma runs up, grabs him in a bear hug on his legs, and giggles. Then she told him she was 4. It was so so cute. After that she went on the field with her team (all girls) and followed directions so well and had a great time. The only time she gave us a sour face was when the other team would score a goal. She would stomp her foot down and make a mad face. It was rather funny. I kept telling George that these little 4 & 5 year old girls were aggressive! Much more aggressive than I thought they would be.
Here she was warming up and dribbling the ball into the goal-
Each game last an hour with the first 30 minutes being team practice. Then the play 4 quarters ( I think) and they take little breaks in between to get water and a snack.
The most exciting part of the game was when Emma scored her 1st GOAL at the end of the game! You would have thought she won the lottery! I have a video of it & will upload it later. I was so excited I almost started crying. ha ha. Oh and she kicked the ball into the correct goal. During the beginning of the game she kept going for the wrong goal which it really doesn’t matter b/c they don’t actually keep score at this age but it was so funny. We had to keep telling her to go the other way. I also loved how she kept her hands on her hips when she wasn’t playing. She is so girly! We put pigtails in her hair and then she wanted to wear her headband with a flower b/c it’s cute and she was just so dainty looking.
She has another game this Saturday and everday she ask if it’s Saturday yet!
After the game we headed over to George’s employer for the annual Easter Egg hunt. Hudson had woke up with a low fever Saturday morning but since I had already mentioned the egg hunt to Emma we thought we would check it out. You can tell in the pictures that Hudson doesn’t feel too great. We had fun though even though Emma didn’t get the golden egg. She was so so upset b/c at this age she is so competitive and wants to win everything and she just doesn’t understand that it’s okay to not win. So she had a game plan that she was going to run and find that golden egg. When they blew the whistle she took off and did not pick up 1 egg until she realized she couldn’t find the golden egg and then it was too late and she only got 2 eggs. She was so upset. It is so tough being 4!
Here are the kids with the Easter bunny. Hudson was not a fan!
Hudson’s egg hunt-
We went on home after the egg hunt and Hudson’s fever had increased so we canceled our plans for the night and stayed home. Then on Sunday he really just wasn’t feeling any better and kept screaming when he would try to drink and wasn’t eating much. After he woke up from his nap he was in major pain so I took him to Urgent Care. Turns out they had a 4 hour wait so we called our peds office & they said just wait until Monday morning & bring him in. He seemed to perk up a bit after he got more Tylenol but then at dinner he was in so much pain and then we saw his tonsils/throat covered in white blisters and his throat was so swollen. Once again we headed back to Urgent Care & sure enough, he has strep throat. He was quite pitiful and even threw up all over himself and me when the dr swabbed his throat. Yep, it was disgusting! But we got a dose of Amoxicillin in him that night and he was much better Monday morning.
Emma started running a fever Tuesday morning so I took her to the dr that afternoon. Surprisingly the strep test came back negative but they said it could’ve been too early so they were growing it overnight and they are supposed to call me sometime today with the results. She continued to run a fever last night and in the middle of the night but so far this morning she’s been fine. This is not how we wanted to spend her spring break!
On Monday the kids were playing while I was folding clothes and I came back in the room to find this-
Yep, Emma is under the clothes basket!
Please excuse Hudson & his messy shirt. I had given him a popsicle and hadn’t changed him yet.
Then yesterday while Emma was resting Hudson wanted to rest with her and it was so cute!
These monkeys are just so cute! They love each other so much and my heart just fills with love when I see them together.
Lastly, here’s the newest addition to our backyard. Last year we had put the rocks down and now this year we’ve added a new crape myrtle tree (Tonto) and 4 double knockout roses. LOVE them! I can’t wait to see them all with roses! Check it out!
With Tonto and his double knockouts-
I’ve got to run jump in the shower b/c today is my training session at the gym but I will be back to post video from Em’s soccer game and more pictures!
