Let Summer Begin!

We had a great start to our summer this last weekend. Caden had his first soccer class, which unfortunately we didn't get any photos of because only Garrett went and there is a lot of parent participation, so he was busy too! Garrett did report back to me, though, that Caden did really good for his first time. He tried to listen to the coach and follow instruction. :) He learned the "soccer stance" where you put your foot up on the ball and roll it forward and backward and then side to side. He showed me this when he got home and is still practicing it. :) Garrett also said that at the very end he made a good goal. I am excited for him to continue this each Saturday for the majority of the summer. 
While Caden and Garrett were at soccer class, Avery and I went to a neighborhood garage sale. We didn't find anything, but we had fun walking around and being out in the nice weather. 
Later that day, after naps of course, we went to the Greek Food Festival that was going on. The kids loved people watching, Caden liked dancing to the live music, and Garrett and I enjoyed the tasty food. 
Sunday was also a great day as a family. After church we picked up lunch and then played out back for awhile with the hose. Avery watched us from her bouncy seat and Caden got soaked! He loves water! We ended the weekend by eating homemade chocolate cookies. It was a really great weekend and a perfect start to summer. I hope we have a lot more days like that in the months to come. :)
