Summer is coming to an end.....

Michael had a great time at soccer camp this week! He played for Spain this year, and just had a great time. He really liked his coaches and even got to play a little bit with the older kids. He learned about off-sides and penalty cards, and a few tricks. Last night we had to make the Spanish flag so that we could take it to his games today. In the picture you can see him painting it. He has grown another shoe size, and is now a size 2. The other night I came home to find him eating an entire Whopper by himself!

We had his school physical Thursday. He is now 46" and a whopping 51 POUNDS! We need to make another appointment with Dr. M to see if we need to increase his doseage. Right now, he is at a "6", but based on his growth and weight gain, he might need to go up to a "7". That is what the pediatrician said when she plotted his growth. He had to get one shot and then we were done. He is ready to go to third grade. His other top tooth is very loose now, and I am thinking he could lose that one this weekend. Maybe he will look like most of the other kids in his class now with their teeth missing!

We get a two day break from soccer camp, and then we start the whole soccer thing again on Monday. This time it is the regular season. Back to being very busy for the next couple of months. (As if we are not busy enough??) It was great while it lasted! Back to the grind next month.

Soccer "Camp"

Yesterday I had a day off, so Michael, Nick and I biked up to the Youth Center to sign him up for soccer camp. He has been soooo excited about this since the beginning of summer! This year, he gets to stay all day at the field. He is looking forward to playing again. The regular season starts on the 20th, and I am sure he will need a new pair of cleats. Mike and I are going to sit this season out as far as coaching and being the Team Parent-we are taking a break! Although I do enjoy being team mom, it can get a little stressful at times dealing with parents. He has his physical on the 16th and a little after that, it is back to school! I can't believe how fast this year is going by.
