Holy no posting batman.....catch-up

Yikes it has been a long two months since I last posted.  Life has been crazy.  School started, soccer started, dr. appointments galore, surgery for Joe, etc.  Well now things are starting to slow down just a bit.  One more week of soccer and that is three evenings a week i will now have free!!  Whitney's has been trying really hard to do well on her team-but it's such a mixture of attitudes that they have a hard time working together. It is hard when she is one of the best players on the team-and she is doing most of the assisting.  I am looking into putting her into a more select/competitive league next year...guess i had better save up now.  Amber scored two goals her last game and she is pretty aggressive about playing. It's good to see her running up and down the field without getting too winded-but she's more motivated this year.  It really is fun to see them both progress in many ways.  Whitney will be playing basketball in the winter and we haven't decided if Amber will too.  Brooke started preschool last month-we do a co-op with her friends and she loves it. She went to see the foot/ankle surgeon yesterday and we discovered she will need to have surgery done on both of her feet.  She has vertical talus-so will get one foot done at a time to correct that.  She is off the charts on her height and i get comments asking me if she is two years older than she is.  Trevor started walking in August and since then has had a few head bruises to show his fearless efforts at running.  He likes to make noises and talk..he is looking like a toddler now.  I wish i could post pictures of all that's been happening and how my kids are growing, but our camera died on us while on our oregon trip and we haven't yet replaced it.  Besides being Whitney's soccer coach, I have been canning and trying to de-clutter the house a bit.  Right now I am busy with getting Halloween costumes together-it's one of my favorite times of year!!  I love the fall and sweater season-the crisp smell in the air and the glorious colorful leaves right before they fall.  This is the best time of the year-Autumn.  I even made some pumpkin pies on Wednesday to celebrate-and because Amber and Joe begged me to!  A fun Halloween Share:
