To the Max

Max started soccer. All my other kids started at 6 because the 5 year olds played on Sundays, but here they don't! Yahoo for Ohio! They play squares here for Kindergarten league. The field which is very short with small goals is split up into 6 boxes. There is a kid from each team in each one of the squares plus one in goal. That way it is always just one on one. They are not allowed to pass their line. The coaches rotate them around so they get to play each position at one point in the game. It is funny to watch them going, going and then just stop dead when they reach their line. At first I didn't like it, but now I think I do, because they all get a chance to get the ball at some point in the game. Max scored in his first game. He is really loving it!
Max was teaching himself to be Indiana Jones and catch things with his whip. He caught a tree and a bed post.
We got Joseph a new bike and put training wheels on his old one. Max is now learning to ride that one. He doesn't like it, but prefers to ride his scooter. He is getting so fast on that scooter!
The other day we went to the Beavercreek Popcorn festival. Basically it was a bunch of booths where people were trying to sell junk to you. The boys used there own money and bought 2 wooden guns that shoot rubber bands and one wooden cross bow that shoots plunger arrows. Max is the only one that would get dressed up like a firefighter. Isn't he a cutie pie! Sam is getting saved from the burning building.
Max's favorite saying right now- Barnacles!

From most of your blog posts, it sounds like the move to Ohio has been positive in many ways. I hope your family continues to have a wonderful time living there. Do you think you might become Reds fans?

Max is so stinkin cute! I love that he says Barnacles! Hilarious! I'm glad that you guys are enjoying Ohio. Your house is beautiful and huge I might add. Another blessing of leaving VA I guess. Money goes further. :)
