This is what the kids have been asking the dog...lol. He has been known to eat anything that wasn't nailed down, but this is actually Steve's doing. Bosco didn't eat the porch! I snapped this picture Friday morning, but since then the bushes are gone and he's hammered some wood to make the porch roof. I'll try to remember to take one tomorrow to update everyone on the house doings.
Miss E has had quite the week. First her rockstar reading, then she had her first soccer game on Thursday night. She scored two goals! I knew that she had the skills, but in practice she often laid down or did sommersaults, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect :-) The whole team did great! They looked pretty rag tag during the practices, but I think almost every kid made a goal or at least made a lot of contact with the ball. In the other teams defense half of their team was missing so they were getting pretty tired, but E's team still had a pretty strong victory (although you don't keep score at this age, but of course every kids does!) On Friday then she casually mentioned that her art teacher didn't send her project home because he wants to feature it in the school art show. Go Emma!
Tonight Peyton and Rylan spent the night with their cousins. They are all now hunkered down in Parker's room. Emma claimed the floor and Peyton and Parker are in one bed. Rylan is in the top bunk. Hopefully P and P don't kick each other too much! Before they went to sleep Parker explained to him that he likes to get up early because that's the best part of the day and you can get a lot done. He is SOOO like his father!
