soccer rocks!

This fall also brings about a change for our Saturday mornings. We have entered the soccer world. Melia has watched her older cousins play over the years and now it was finally her turn to get in on the soccer action.

With our last game approaching this Saturday, I have to say it's been a great experience. Melia loves to get out there and run around. Finally, a place to let her competitive spirit have at it. Fall is such a beautiful time to be outdoors in the great northwest. We've only been rained on once!

I think we'd better get use to watching soccer....this is only the beginning.

The soccer rocks (their team name) gang and coach Tim.

Going for the goal!

If soccer doesn't work out, I think she may have a future in cheerleading.

Perhaps the best part....treats at the end.

here we go

This fall season brings a major change about in the Wells household. Melia has entered the world of public education as a kindergarten student at Gubser Elementary. O hurt my heart! I can distinctly remember holding Melia as a newborn and thinking that those people who told me time would fly by were all wrong. Each day felt soooooo long and tiring to me. I was a mess of a new mother and the "school years" might as well have been light years away.

Now I understand what those wise women meant. It does go fast! Too fast. Yes, there are still some long days but Melia is growing up to be such a wonderful little girl. I have now banned her from growing any older. Does anyone know where I can get my hands on a time-freezing machine?
