Blake took off on his annual fly fishing weekend and of course we had a jammed packed couple of days to fill in. I wasn't going to brave soccer alone but I'm SO glad that I did! Emmy for some reason just decided to be really on her game today. In the third "quarter" she did a fast break and ran down the field with the ball and scored a goal!! The best thing was that when she did it, she ran off the field as fast as she could and came and gave me a huge Hi-five. I gave her a big hug and said "All right! Go make another one! And she said "I just did that." and sat down for a snack. Oh well, baby steps!She did go in for the last quarter, and I was SO proud of her for willingly "playing" the entire game. We're making progress. Coach Brad awarded her the medal for the day and she was SO excited. She kept telling me "it's BEAUTIFUL!"
They made a little "prarie dog song" for the little kids to sing. Most of the kids in the choir hadn't listed to the CD quite as many times as we had evidently ;)
And here's the big performance! I was pleasantly surprised that Emmy actually performed. Last time they sang in choir she turned around and watched herself on the big screens the entire time. The musical was REALLY long, so it's amazing that after sitting there for an hour, the little prairie dogs were still on their game.
After such a big weekend full of so many eventful things, we of course had to finish off with a bang, literally. We ran to Sams and brought Emmy. She was walking behind the cart and fell, slamming into the bottom rung of the buggy with.. drumroll please... the EXACT place she STILL has glue from her stitches. It was pretty brutal looking right when it happened and still pretty impressive that night. Her poor little face is never going to get a rest!
Ok, we're ready for Blake to come home now! It's been a CRAZY, productive, happy couple of days!
