school and soccer

Happy Labor Day Weekend! So, to give some details about my last post...we are pregnant! :) I am only 7 weeks right now, but I am not one of those people who can wait to share the news, I was too excited! I am still in shock a little. When it takes so long to get pregnant the first time around, I just kind of mentally prepared that it could be the same this time around, knowing deep down that I was hoping it would happen soon because I didn't want Easton too much older before we found out. So, after 3 months of just seeing what would happen, it was official :) It will be perfect for my work, I will have the baby in late April, allowing me to take maternity leave straight into my summer break! Easton seems to be excited, just still figuring it out. He says that he wants a brother, but he thinks it's a sister. :) I am so excited to see him with the baby when the time comes! 

So, since summer has ended, I haven't had much time to hop on and update. I love love love my TV kids this year, they are so excited to be there everyday and are producing some awesome commercials already. Let's just say after 1st period, I have to take some deep breaths on my way to my other classroom and pray for patience and guidance. I have been dealt a big challenge this year. It's been a hard transition, especially after having it so good the past several years. But, I just have to trust God put me in that room for a reason and he will use this to my advantage when the time is right. 

After I am done with the school day, I am coaching golf. That has been really fun. The girls are great and I get paid to go out and play golf with them :) It is just mainly time consuming, especially on match days. Anyways, I am thankful for this 3 day weekend to catch my breath, BUT I go back tomorrow for 1 day of work and then Wednesday morning we head out to "Mickey's House!" Easton will be 4 on Thursday and we get to spend his actual birthday at the Magic Kingdom. I am so excited for this trip and can't wait to share the details when we get back. 

This weekend has been good, we had our first pep rally. Easton liked seeing the Panthers, but he LOVED giving the football players high fives as they marched out and walked around the gym. He is obsessed with football!!
 Saturday he had his first soccer game of the season. Of course last year he got slammed in the mouth and ran away from the ball after that, so we were excited that he forgot about that and ran after the ball! 
It was more of a jog, and he is still very aware and cautious about his surroundings, but he was more aggressive and...

got his first ever goal!!!! :) Here is the moment it happened, luckily Pop stayed focused in capturing it, I was too excited watching him dribble down to do anything. 
He was so proud of himself. It was awesome. He ran over to Drake and gave him a high five and was just beaming. It's going to be a fun season. 
Saturday night we had a quick date night while Easton played with some friends. We grabbed dinner and watched football at Buffalo Wild Wings. 
Well, we are headed in town to take Easton to the park. Then it will be cleaning up and packing! Have a good week!


  1. Oh man, I am just SO so so so happy for you guys. How wonderful that is happened so easily the 2nd time around! I was in shock when that happened for us too. :) I love the perfect timing for your summer break as well!

  2. How are you feeling? I hope you have an amazing pregnancy and that is so nice that the timing happened to work out perfectly with your job. We were the same way; surprised how quickly it happened for us the second time around. I can't get enough of Easton in his soccer uniform. What a cutie!
