It has begun!

Soccer season has started! This year Emma is the only one playing. We decided we definitely needed some more family time, so the boys were taken out of everything except piano lessons, much to Sam's consternation. Emma needs to continue to play if she is going to try out for a school team next year, though. She scored her first goal of the season and did some fancy footwork that even her Dad was impressed with! It was so nice to be done after that and then get to take a nap. After a nap we went biking as a family- Ok, the kids biked (Emma dragging the trailer with Max riding.) Mom and Dad ran the 6 miles. On the way back a fire truck came screaming down the street, scaring me. I watched it, but couldn't see if it turned into the school were we were headed or continued straight. Pretty soon Rob was saying, "you've increased the pace!" I wanted to make sure Joe hadn't gone out of control and gotten hit by a car. As we crested the hill we saw all the kids, safe and the firetruck in the school parking lot. The school alarm had gone off. I was so glad it wasn't our children!!

Sometimes we have to make exectitive decision like that. We have all 3 in piano but she's a block and 1/2 away and takes all 3 4-5:30 on Wednesdays. I think I like Wednesdays.
