Nick got to go to Chicago for the Nascar race this weekend!  He got to go with his dad, grandpa, brother in law, uncle, and 3 cousins.  He had so much fun!  He will be talking about this for a long time!

This weekend, Dad is out of town, so on Saturday, the boys and I got to go with Nana and Gramps to visit Great Grandma.  We really enjoyed the day.  That night, Ben, Conner, and I got ready for bed and I started to read.  These two could barely stay awake!  Conner's eyes kept closing and then fluttering back open.  Ben actually did fall asleep before the end of the book!

Game Time!

We had soccer pictures and our first real soccer game today!  The boys were bouncing around with excitement all morning.  It was awesome to watch them play!  They definitely were tired out by the end of the game!  So proud of these two!!!

Soccer Help...

Soccer practice takes up a lot of our nights lately!  Nick is helping at practices now, too, and this really helped tonight!  The boys listened better and they played better overall, so I am so thankful that Nick was willing to do this!

After such a great soccer practice, we decided we didn't really want to cook and headed out to eat.  We just went over to Culver's and it was packed with people.  There was an out of town girls volleyball team there.  The funny part was that when our food was finally ready, Ben wasn't eating because he kept turning around and looking at all of the girls.  We kept asking him to stop staring, to which he replied, "I just can't help myself, those girls are all so beautiful!"

One More Time...

Today is Labor Day and the boys and I definitely enjoyed a bonus day at home!  We are missing our summer days!  Nick got home early and we decided to make one more trip to the Splash Pad before it closes for the season!  The boys had a blast!

It's usually the little things that get these two excited and today it was getting to bring home a balloon.  I had to take them away so they wouldn't pass out!  But they were very proud that they could blow up the balloon all by themselves!
