New soccer team

What a beautiful day! So beyond thankful for the cooler temps. It has been crazy hot here this week. I think it got up to 106 on Wednesday! Anyway, today was the start of the fall soccer season. Jake has played soccer since he was 4 and loves it! This year is very different though. Burleson is much more competitive than Texarkana was. They are even allowed to have goalies. Jake was picked to be a goalie this year! I have to admit that I think that is exactly where he needs to be!
It is so funny because he is always the biggest kid in his age group. Some of the other kids are scared he will run them over. It has only happened a few times! HA!
I am hoping to do some updating on my blog. I am trying to get better at keeping it updated and adding pic since we have moved away from our family :( I am loving Burleson and being in the DFW are though. If you know of people that are good at blog designing let me know! Have a great weekend. Get out and enjoy it! Jess

First day of second grade!

Wahoo! Jake started second grade this year. He is by far the tallest kid in his class. He is kinda proud of that one.
I always forget to have Sam take my pic with him. Oh well, I am just glad I got Jake to pose for me! He has decided he shouldn't take pictures. He was willing to let me snap several different ones.
I had to keep myself from crying. This was a big deal for both of us. I have homeschooled Jake the last 3 years, so this was a big change on top of moving! We thought this would be a great way for Jake to meet new friends. Sam is just a typical guy that doesn't seem to get emotional about anything!
He has liked school so far. He is ahead of his group because of the stuff we have covered the last 3 years. He said he liked being the smartest. Ha. He will go to this school the full year, even after the new house is finished. I was wanting him to start at the school where we were building but they have new rules and he cant go until the house is finished. I think we will let him stay the full school year where he is at and transfer at the beginning of next year. I worried that being the new kid in the middle of the year would be rough. Once again, hubby said I worry to much!


We have walls! I didn't get to make it out to the new house yesterday so I was shocked to see what they had accomplished!
Jake was super excited to see the progress. We went right after school so the guys were still working. I wanted to go in and walk around! We did get to meet one of our neighbors and she has a son in the second grade as well. She said there were about 4 more boys either in second or close to second grade. Plus, there were several girls that age as well. She said there were tons of kids in the neighborhood! She said about 6 families got together Labor day weekend and had a huge water balloon fight. Sam and Jake will fit right in. Just wanted to do a quick update on the house. I still have to post Jake's first day of school!
