Meet Baby Sydney

On Friday, September 27th at the early hour of 1:20 am, Sydney Lynne Koehler decided to make her quick arrival into this world. We were all beyond excited to meet her and welcome our new niece and cousin! 

Sydney Lynne, 7 lbs 14 oz
One proud Auntie! 
Her big brothers, Aiden and Liam already adore her. 
Liam kept saying, "Mommy can we take My Syndey home"

Lola and Ellie could not see Sydney in the hospital, they had to wait until the following day when she arrived home. Lola was beyond excited, almost giddy with anticipation to finally meet her new cousin and hold a real newborn baby. Ellie was very excited too, just not as intense as our little mommy Lola! 

All girl, all ready!

Destroyers...SEASON TWO

So all of us moms and dads decided to try it again! Last year my friends and I started our very own "mom and pop" soccer team. We named our team the DESTROYERS, rightfully so, as you can imagine... Two, Three, and Four year-olds being coached by their parents to a play a game most of their parents never played (except in high school PE of course), is a sight to be seen. Our 2012 season was far from a stellar performance of athleticism to say the least, but the kids had fun anyway. I will have to note though, we always get walk-ons the day of, from general park participants who are impressed by our efforts. Now, another year older and with possibly more skills and coordination under their belts, we have higher hopes for this season. We are ready: decked out with new shirts and some awesome new team members!
Cheers to a fun and winning 2013 soccer season!
Team members include but are not limited to:
 Ellie, Lola, Ella, Joseph, Henry, Xavier, Sam, Leo, and Vivian.

Lola scoring a goal!
Ellie taking a shot!

Our team completing drills with none other than pregnant coach Leslie.

The kids favorite drill, by far. It's so fun the parents even play.

...and that's a wrap...
Practice is over for the day, time to play! Off to the park these little umbrella ladies go!

Last week my friend Melissa came down from Northern California to visit. It is always a great time. She brought her sister and mom and of course her adorable little boy Brady. We all met at Kathleen's house for a night of fun!

All the kids having a blast!


Trampoline fun!

Crazy Kids!

First day of Pre-K

The girls started pre-k last week and that day marked the first day of pre-K and the start of their last year of pre-school. They are attending preschool three days a week this year. The girls were excited about starting this year of school, absolutely no hesitation. They were looking forward seeing their friends and teachers again as well as playing in their new classroom. This year was an easier transition for me as well, but very bitter sweet at the same time. These mile stones just seem to be flying at us faster and faster each and every year. How are my babies starting their last year of preschool already? 

Ellie  and Lola age 4 1/2
My Ellie, so sweet and so grown-up. 
My Lola, so lovely and mature- yet she still needs her blankie. 
 Sister, these girls are so lucky that they get to experience the excitement of life together. 

 My independent little ladies leading the way to their new classroom. 

 The girls were beyond excited to see their new play equipment, 
in what Sacred Heart calls the "Shark Tank" So fun! 
 New classroom, New cubbies, and New centers...
 all because they are in the 4 year-old/ Pre-K class. They are the big-wigs on campus now! 

 Ellie,  One Proud Momma, and Lola. Love these ladies. 

 The "school fairy" came again this year. I am not sure how she knew which car was mommy,  but she left the girls a first day of school treat in their car seats. The girls were beside themselves with excitement when they realized what was waiting for them in the car. The school fairy left them a bag of treats which included M&M, princess tissues, a girlie wallet with a dollar bill inside and yummy chips. 
Lucky Girls!

Here are some shots of the girls during their first week of pre-K. I love that the preschool director sends me periodic pictures of the girls having fun at pre-school. It simply makes my day. 

Can you tell it's Lola who is reading the story to her classmates before nap time.
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree now does it? My Lola, a little teacher.
It was a great start to what's bound to be a great school year!
