What a weekend!!!
This weekend was amazing!! The weather was perfect and the days were full of fun. Saturday Nathan had a soccer game and they won, 3-0. Nathan scored 2 of the goals. He had about 4 attempts on goal that missed, but in the last quarter he scored 2 goals, one that bounced off his shin guard and in the goal and one he kicked in. Coach is trying to teach them positions, but it is a learning curve!! Nathan was suppose to be playing midfield, but ended up in the forward position most of the 4th quarter. The majority of the time he would get the ball away from the pack and there was just no one to pass up to so he ran with it!! It was a fun game to watch, I just wish the other team could have scored as well. makes it more fun for all involved. After the game we went to Dave and Busters where Exxon Mobil was having there safety extravaganza. Basically they rent out Dave and Busters and the employees and their family's get to play games for free, eat for free (they have it catered and their is an area with BBQ, kids bits, a pasta bar, then the dessert bar of fruit and cookies.), face painting, massages and some vendors with free things. Nathan enjoyed the hunting games and winning as many of the tickets as possible!! the girls just had fun getting coins out of the coin machine, I think they would do damage on a slot machine!! It was a good day out and we all had playing and eating!! Sunday was such a beautiful day we had the air conditioner off all day and the windows open. It was started off with some excitement. Paul was making toast for kids before we went to church and Nathan's was left in the toaster a little too long and caught on fire. Fortunately that is all that caught on fire, however the kitchen still has a bit of a "fire" smell to it. in Paul's defense the toaster we have really should be put in the trash, it is old and metal so when it cooks things the entire toaster gets hot so if you touch it will burn you. Plus the temperature control does not work. I guess I will be buying a new toaster this week.... After church we spent the day playing outside, relaxing, and baking. I made 2 loaves of banana bread and some brownies. The brownies are almost gone and there is just one loaf of banana bread left. For supper it was hamburgers and french fries. A great weekend!!
