posin...

i'd luv to give a holla out to all my soccer girls from back in the day! hey...i know i could barely kick the ball...spent most of my time stoppin the ball...but like mother like daughter, i have a poser! this is vanny's first year of soccer...i hesitated to start her because it is (yes i'm going to type it) a little boring, her friend from pre-school was doing it, so here we are. she is enjoying it, her comment at practice...she comes running over to me while the team is still practicing....babe what's the problem? "i'm all sweaty mom!"
savannah's second year of pre-school....Miss Linda's class!

blast from the past...my college roommate sandy! cam ran a clinic down in pueblo last weekend and we decided to make it a little trip. i hadn't seen sandy for about 6 years, so it was so fun to catch up with her in her home town! we lived together my sophomore year and played on the hoop team together.


sandy & her sweet little emily...blonde and blue eyed, can you believe it!

we went out to dinner at texas roadhouse and then everyone came over to the hotel for a little late night dip in the pool...lucy is crazy, she makes me laugh!

i spent the day with sandy over at her house on her land (some hundreds of acres!). her husband runs a chile farm...it was pretty cool to see. they built their house right on the Arkansas river. sandy made us homemade green chile, took us on a tour of the property on her ranger, & talked about the good ol' days at mesa! luved seeing you sandy, you are a great mom! (and awesome science teacher & coach...busy momma!)

That is darling that Savannah is playing Soccer. She looks so cute in her pink uniform. Hopefully she'll still be playing some games when we come down. :) Looks like you guys are able to fit in a little bit of play time between all of the crappy hospital hours. We are excited to see you guys!

You're a soccer mom! How is it? That's a road we haven't went down yet.
That last photo is darling! Was she a crazy driver or something because Cameron looks like he is scared to death. You know what they say..."Women drivers no survivors"...hey wait a minute, I'm a woman driver...

Oh Savannah is so cute in her soccer uniform!! We started Kirk this year too and it is so funny to watch! At least we're getting down which goal we're headed towards. Now it's time for defense. He's too nice and won't take the ball away from anyone. So fun!
