Bug is Growing Up

Birthdays for us are kinda crazy. We have birthdays in December, January, February, March, April, and July. It gets a little stressful to figure out whose birthday is in the month we're in when I can't remember what month it is to begin with!

But, March is Bugs' birthday. She is FOUR YEARS OLD this month. I just can't believe it. She has grown so much from the first day we met her. She was 9mo old and such a little thing. We have had her for three years now and we can't imagine life without her. The kids were talking and they don't actually remember our family without her! She is a sweet addition to our family.

She is a handful sometimes though! She definitely keeps us on our toes and trying to guess what she is going to do next. She keeps us laughing constantly. We love her so very much.

Happy Birthday, Bug. You are a challenge and a joy. You are loved.

Conditioning

Soccer this year for our Homeschool Organization is starting early. Ok, not technically. They are starting Conditioning practices to help the girls get in shape after the long, dormant winter.

Practices are two hours long and consist of a 15 min run, 10 strength exercises, dynamic stretching, running, drills, running, extra sit-ups and pushups and running for missed passes/goals, and a bit more running! Three days a week.

The girls worked hard for the entire month of February and we can see the difference in them. They are definitely in better shape and ready to start the season.

This year Bethany is playing again for the High School team as well as Sarah. She joined late and didn't get as many of the conditioning practices but is catching up. Hannah decided to join the Junior High team this year and is doing well.

Now that the regular season has started we are having practices three days a week for two hours a day. The girls are responsible for doing their workouts on the off days as well and if they don't there is more running!

I can't wait to play our first game--I am Assistant Coach for Junior High and Varsity(second or third assistant!) But I am helping and loving it. The girls that embraced Bethany last year and helped her so much are amazing young women and I am blessed to be part of their lives.

Go Warriors!!
