Labor Day Weekend the guys went to a baseball game:
Here's the happy group just before leaving the house (Mia slept over the night before and she was still lounging in her pajamas):
(I think the food is Jayden's favorite part of any baseball game he attends!)
Jayden was very impressed with the balancing talent of this vendor (I am too!):
Jayden's getting a better look at...
...Derek Jeter at bat!
And both Jayden and Mia started school again.
(Here's Jayden both excited and a little nervous on his first day.):
They are both very happy with their teachers and their classes this year! Whew!
And both Jayden and Mia are playing soccer this year:
Taking a few practice kicks before heading out to the game:
A little pep talk from the coach:
Jayden (number 15) helping a few team mates untangle from the net:
A few more practice kicks and then it's game on!
I think Jayden thinks he's assistant coach!
Jayden is 'all business' now that he has his Goalie gear on!
Jayden guarding his turf:
Mia is taking Instructional Soccer this Fall and she loves it!
Even baby sister Sophie comes to cheer her on each week:
Jayden giving Mia a few pointers:
"Did I do it right, Jayden?"
"Ohh! Yes! That was good, Mia!"
After yesterday's games some family came back to the house to celebrate Ellie's Birthday (she's in the background in the picture below):
Jayden loves his cousins! I hope he loves his baby brother just as much! (He's due to arrive today, but so far there has only been days and days of mild contractions, and so the waiting continues!)
I think it's adorable how Lori dresses the girls alike! I think it looks so cute and it reminds me of how my Mom used to dress my sister Diane and myself alike (everyone thought we were twins, and sometimes even my older sister Marybeth would be dressed like us, although I don't know if she thought it was so cute!).
So far September has been full, and active, and FUN!
