    4 goals that is great! I think in my entire soccer career (2 years) I scored one goal. :) My daughter had a few more goals than me.

    Our weekend was terrific... but busy. The kids had a school performance Friday, we went to a fall festival on Saturday and hit the beach on Sunday (finally a warm enough weekend day!!). Needless to say all 3 kids we're fast asleep by 6:35 last night.

    Tuesday is DD1's EIGHTH birthday and we're all excited to celebrate with her and then have her party on Saturday. The rest of the week is filled with school, preschool, soccer, taekwondo, dance, gymnastics and... a pedicure.

    Kids are as happy as ever and still healthy despite 3 weeks of school. 8

    Late to the party...

    How was your weekend? Exhausting. We helped pack up some friends (a family of 5) and move them 5 1/2 hours southwest of here. The kids stayed with my parents as we caravan with the family and two other couples. Got our friends settled in their new house and headed back home. It was a beautiful drive through the mountains, though. The golden aspen trees were unbelievably beautiful!

    Any plans for the week? Hmm...still catching up from the weekend. I guess this week is just the usual activities. Friday night we are going to celebrate Sukkot with some friends.

    How are your child/children? They are doing amazingly well. The school-aged ones are loving school. The little ones and I are having fun with our "special" time together.

    News you would like to share?

    Hi KC! I've been lurking here again for the last couple of weeks and I saw your name, so I had to say hi.

    Hope you and the family are doing well.

    I really miss our old group of moms...
    KC_94920 replied to 1andonlybaby's response:
    Hey there stranger! I miss the old crew too and keep hoping they'll magically reappear one day. Thanks for checking in. We're all good and the kids are growing strong and fast. How's your not-so-little guy doing these days?
    1andonlybaby replied to KC_94920's response:
    Joshua is doing great KC; growing like a weed! He's doing well in school, which is great.

    Your kids are sooo cute in that pic!

    I'll definitely be checking in more often.
