It's been a month...

Well, it has been over a month since I have updated the blog. We have been busy with soccer. I think B is finally getting the hang of things for the first few games he was that kid. You know the one who is staring off into space as the ball went by him. It took everything I had not to be that mom. But, in the big picture he is having a blast.

B has also become a big Cal Poly sports fan. At the first football game of the year, Jeff and he were asked t0 be ball boys. B scored a picture with the cheerleaders. Jeff scoped out one of the 49ers who was there watching his little brother. Last Friday was Mott Madness. A couple of the players who worked the camp remembered him and had him come down on the court with them for a picture. He was pretty amped.

For B's birthday, we bought tickets to see Montgomery Gentry in Pozo. They are one of B's favorite country groups. He has been rocking out to "Gone" ever since I can remember. When he cleans his room their CD is often blaring. The concert was a blast. A local group was one of the openers. B bought a hat so he could get it signed by the band. One of the event staff saw that B was singing and rocking out to the the MG songs offered to get try and get his "do rag" he bought signed by MG. And she did.

Addy has turned into quite the little climber. If she can climb it, she does. B's bunk bed ladder is her favorite apparatus of choice. I lost one morning while making breakfast and found on his ladder. For all you safety freaks, we keep his door shut at all times now and are teaching her to climb down. She also loves to play with her Dad and brother not matter what they are doing, which includes sticking her in a trash can.

HummBaby, the Giants are in the playoffs. I was lucky enough to be able to go with my Grandma, Uncle Joe and Auntie Gail to Game 1 of the NLDS. The atmosphere in the ballpark was incredible. And Timmy was lights out! It is a good thing I have had the Giants to watch because football season has been pretty disappointing so far.

Our family held the First Fight like a Girl mini Triathlon last weekend. We held the event to honor and in support of our cousin Joannie who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year, along with other loved ones who are battling, who are survivors and who have passed from cancer. The family really rallied together to show their love. Much love and aloha to everyone!
