I know. I know.

I havent been around. I am sorry for that. You see, in just 22 days, I will be moving from CT to OH. So, most of my time has been spent preparing for the move. I will be back, with some resemblence of frequency after the move. Until then!

My thoughts...

are with the families and victims of today's tragedy at Fort Hood.

May peace be with those who lost their lives to the hands of their fellow soldier.

Girls' School Pictures

What we've been up to...

We've been very, very busy since I last posted. Sorry for the lapse. So without further adoo...

Soccer weekend #5 (October 17-18)

It was really, really cold that weekend. Luckily, we had went to Dick's and gotten Emali some UnderArmor. They lost, yet again. But, they were definiately working better together.

Soccer Weekend #6 (October 24-25)

We couldnt have asked for a better day to play. While it was windy and still wet from the previous night's rain, it was relatively warm outside. Emali scored her first (and only) goal. They still lost, but it made Emali's day. She did also manage that day to do a bellyflop into the ONLY puddle of water on the field.

After the soccer game on Sunday, the 25th, we headed into Waterford for Smacktoberfest 2009. It was ski races, bus racing, demo derby and trailer racing. Totally the best fun I have had here in a while. Emali LOVED the trailer racing. Alvin just like the cranes/loaders used to move the wreckage.

Thursday night (October 29) we headed up to Providence to Roger Williams Park Zoo for Jack O-lantern Spectacular. They had over 10,000 carved pumpkins on display. I am so glad we went. It was definitely an experience we couldnt have gotten back in Ohio.
Last night, we went Trick or Treating around housing. We went in full theme: Wizard of Oz. Erin was Dorothy, Emali was Glinda, Erin was the Tin Man, Alvin was the Cowardly Lion, and I was the Wicked Witch of the West. The girls scored MAJOR amounts of candy.

Soccer weekend #7- the final weekend
So, today was Emali's last soccer game. (They played yesterday, I just forgot my camera). They managed to tie the last game of the season. Emali had a really good year playing. She got filthy again today. Then after the game, it was off for the season ending pizza party. The kids got the coach a signed soccer ball. He awarded the kids with various awards. Emali got awarded "Most Outstanding Defender". She hated playing defense but she was SO good at it.

So, there ya are. All caught up. Things should slow down in the coming weeks and I should be able to update more often.
PS.....Eric and I also celebrated our SECOND anniversary in this last non-update period. So, Happy (belated) Anniversary honey. I love you!
