Fall Soccer Begins

Brody had his first soccer game of the Fall Season on Saturday. He has a great group of boys on his team, and they are lucky to have the same coach he has had the last 2 seasons.  Coach Donnie is amazing with the kids and really teaches them foot skills and about the game of soccer.  The boys played great and got their first win!

This year, instead of having their own names on their jerseys, Coach Donnie suggested that the boys pick a professional soccer player's name to put on their jersey. He has been telling them each about their player at practice and encouraging them to watch their pro play.  We have all had fun watching highlight videos of the different pros that these boys picked: Messi, Ronaldo, Dempsey, Donovan, Bradley, Robbie Keane, and of course Kaka (Brody!).  Brody has declared that he wants to be ranked one of the best soccer players in the world one day...just like these guys.

Colby's 5 year well visit

Colby had his 5 year well visit with Dr. Hudson on Wednesday, September 4th.  We are so happy to report that he is looking and doing great!  Colby always amazes me with his enthusiasm at doctor's appointments.  This kid loves his doctors, and he loves going in for check-ups.

Colby did great with his eye exam and hearing test, and he thankfully passed both!  His weight and height look good too.  He weighed in at 32 pounds, which is a 4 pound weight gain since last year.  He even moved up a little on the weight growth chart!  His height is up 3 inches since last year to 38 inches tall!  This doesn't get him on the growth chart for height, but he is still maintaining his own little curve.  As long as he's growing, we are happy!
