We found a good deal on a used trumpet for Malia for the fall and she couldn't resist playing it right away! Jack was quite intrigued by it.

Two thumbs up for a great win on the field tonight!

I started a free 34 day trial on this new budgeting program today (You Need A Budget). Hopefully this will help keep us a bit more on track with our spending...and also keep me from falling so far behind with our bookkeeping!

Oh Jack...waiting for Malia to drop him bits of food while she gets her lunch ready.

It's so sad that after only 4 games, we are already halfway through the soccer season. It's far too short!

Ground breaking news here today! Joelle went to a friend's house and got a make over which included JEANS! This kid hasn't worn jeans in YEARS. They looked great on her and she even wore them all evening at youth group.

Malia was thrilled to have little Nova (and her parents) come out to her soccer game tonight and cheer her on for a win!

We took the kids mini golfing on this long weekend Monday. No action shots of the game, but I did get this one of Malia in between holes.

I'm kinda sorta really glad I took the plunge with these red glasses.

Malia's teacher sent me this picture this afternoon. They dissected starfish today! Glad it wasn't me...

A well fought game tonight even though we lost 3-1. It was a beautiful evening for soccer.

Took the fam-jam to see Need to Breathe tonight. SO good! Even though the lead singer was under the weather and almost lost his voice by the end.

Getting ready to head to a BBQ with friends!

I finally took about 2 minutes before work this morning to put colour on my toes. Makes such a big difference!

Tonight was Malia's grade 6 spring musical. They did a jukebox time machine musical where they traveled to different decades and then sang songs that were from each time period. It was very well done!

The Darth Vader mask is coming along! Another half hour and the hat should be all assembled and I'll finally be free of it!

Making a silly/nervous/excited face before Game #1 of the season! A 2-1 victory was a great way to start!

I haven't been doing much crocheting lately, but this order for another Darth Vader hat has been taunting me for weeks and weeks. I've been procrastinating on it for far too long so today I started the finishing detail work on the 3D mask. Luckily I don't need to have it finished till June, but my goal is to complete it by the weekend.

Looks like everyone's tired from our weekend away!

This game has become a new regular in our household these days.

A dog really is great therapy. Love coming home to this guy after a long day of work.

My hubby, the soccer coach. The season officially began today with the first practice.

Due to some heat damage on my hair from using my straightener everyday, I had a small patch that essentially broke off. In order to hide the damage, I had no choice but to change my style to include bangs. It will take some getting used to, but I hope it will grow on me.
