Today was a day where the "1 picture a day" format was pretty difficult. We did a ton of stuff, my in-laws are in town visiting and it is really hard to choose just one picture from the many that I have. In the end, after debating about who to include, what to include, I just went with the picture and event that stood out the most to me.
You guys - my girl played an hour of soccer in the pouring down rain. That's right. My 5 year old daughter, played an entire hour of soccer in the rain without complaining and scored 4 goals in the process. In fact the only power struggle we did have was I wanted to her to wear either a coat, or a long underwear top under her jersey and she was digging her heels in about wearing either of them. That girl can sense a power struggle a mile away and will almost always win them. I finally gave up about the clothing but once I pointed out that EVERY OTHER KID had a long-sleeved shirt or jacket on because it was freezing cold and raining she put one on under her shirt. And then she scored 4 goals. Not that we're keeping score or anything. I was super proud of her whole team for just being there and having a good time.
After that, it was rest time, a fire station tour so Peter could show his parents the new station, out to Ikea for shopping and dinner then home. Sprinkle in a run this morning for me, some shopping during rest time and I was a tired lady and the kids were completely worn out. By the time we left Ikea, Miss E was laying in the bottom of our shopping cart covered with a coat half-asleep.
