But where have we been the last month!?
Jake started soccer! My cousin coaches him and he has a few friends on his team so he likes to go, but I think I might have a piano player or an intellectual instead of a sports fanatic! And that's ok, it's totally his dad in him. He is super excited to go but couldn't really care about playing, he'll do it but he's not into it at all! Tonight my cousin told him he had to kick the ball three times before he was alowd off the field bc he was asking to get off. So he did it right away and he did it well! That's what drives me crazy, he's super good at sports when he trys but if he doesn't care about something he won't give it anything. The opposite is true as well, if he loves it he'll work so hard at it.
This is my cousin Laurel, her little girl Galilee:), me and my friendly little monster out for brunch!
After I got home Sophie came up to visit from Portland! She is 15, and I used to mentor her. We are super close to her family and it just worked nicely for her to come up! We had a great time, and even got to go to a Switchfoot concert. However, I think she was a little disappointed i wasn't mosh pit material anymore.... I told her I once was, but somehow rubbing up against sweaty bodies just isn't appealing anymore!
Seeing our cousins on the island! (too bad Lauren you can't untag yourself here;)
Oh yes, here is Switchfoot!
And I had a birthday! It really wasn't a huge deal this year, the last two years my friends and family put on big parties for me and it was amazing! This year I wanted something low key because honestly I didn't think i deserved another party. Last year I had three surprise parties, so I didn't want to force anyone to try and top those ha ha! Ever since Preston died life has been alot about others caring for me, which I needed, but I'm so much more able on my own now and I would way rather pour into other people. So we just had a small family dinner and a girls night!
Well it's getting too late to even remember what else happened! So now that I've updated ya'll (I still love that word even though ppl make fun of me up here for saying it). I'll try super hard to update more often!
