Where has the first month of this new year gone? That is the question that I found myself thinking today. It seems like it was just the other day that we were fighting to stay awake to see the new year in. Now we are one month through it.
We have had so much going on that I feel like my body is literally spinning in circles at times. Between starting back to school and all the sports games and practices it is always something going on.
Yes, we did just get back from a nice little get away to California to see Mickey and friends. We spent most of last week walking the parks of Disneyland and California Adventure. We were so exhausted from all the walking that we almost felt like we needed a vacation from our vacation. HA! :) We had a great time but it has been non stop every since we drove back into town.
The night we got home we had just enough time to unload the car and then we were off to Kyle's soccer game. The next 3 days we found ourselves driving an hour each way to more soccer games. Kyle played in a tournament that was really far away. It was so far that most families from the team ended up staying at a hotel by the fields for the weekend. One of the days we had to be at the fields by 7am. I had to set my alarm for 4:30am that morning. Blah! (way too early or me). It was a fun tournament, they always are. Kyle's team ended up in the consolation round and won it. Overall, Kyle had 7 goals this weekend! He was on fire!
There is always Hockey on the weekends as well and this weekend was a big one for Tyler's team. They played the #1 team in their league and beat them with a 4-3 win. It was very exciting to say the least!! It has been a long time since I have seen grown adults jumping and screaming uncontrollably with such passion. hehe!! I think all the parents were more tired then the players from all the screaming, yelling and cheering.
Now looking ahead from here...we still have the crazy hockey and soccer schedules in addition to the start of a new recreation soccer team that the hubby and I will be coaching, and... Tyler will be picking back up with his song and dance group at church (more practices during the week to be at). Oh yes, these are busy times!
