Where have I been?!

In case anyone is wondering where I've been........I have one easy answer - my CAR! I thought life would slow down once school started, but Addie and I have somewhere to be pretty much every morning of the week. And when the older two get home from school, we are usually rushing back out the door for soccer practice or some other meeting or event. Our weekends have been packed with soccer games. This weekend we have 4! Mix a 2 year old into that, and things get a little more hectic. But honestly, to me, it's "happy chaos", and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world!
We have been trying to spend as much time outside as we can, before we have to hibernate for the winter. So here are a few pictures of our outside fun........
I am finding it very hard to get a good picture of Addie and I together! She is one goofy girl....
And how about trying to get a picture of a 12, almost 13 year old?! Impossible!
And when Riley is not playing soccer, this is his second love:
Addie likes to join in the fun!

And here we go again, trying to get a good picture.....oh well, we tried! :)

Please pray...

please pray for this family in China right now, and for their precious daughter..... I know God can move mountains, and this family desperately needs God to move mountains on their behalf.

The Arboretum

Addie and I spent yesterday morning at our local arboretum with our good friends, "Miss Becky" and Lauren. The girls had so much fun running around, and especially getting wet. It was a perfect day.
Time for a little snack.....
Checking out the BIG bugs!
To all of my blogger friends in Texas, I am thinking of you and praying that Ike will go away! Stay safe. (especially Beth, Paul, and Alli Rui)
And to JinXiu and her mommy, I miss you and your blog.....

Six Flags!

On Saturday morning, we surprised the kids with tickets to Six Flags (thanks Aunt Lisa!!).
We had such a fun day. Riley was finally tall enough to ride every single ride, and let me tell you, he rode EVERY single ride! I'm sad to say, I must be getting old.....those rollercoasters aren't quite as fun as they used to be. Talk about a headache!

What's wrong with this picture??

Addie made a few little girls mad because I let her put her toes in the water, and their mom wouldn't let them! What can I say, she's my 3rd child! ha
Time for a break...

Notice Alyssa's expression after getting off the roller coaster!

This is the roller coaster they were on.....
This is the only shot I got of Addison in the boat.....right before she almost jumped ship, and we had to take her off!
Mommy and Addie riding Scooby Doo's mystery machine....
It was a fun day.........
