It seems like its been forever since I wrote about what we've been up to lately. I can't believe how quickly February is flying by and there's only a few days left! Even though I haven't been nearly as busy this month as I normally am, having a cold/sinus infection for two weeks really kicked my butt!
Wayne had to work this, so I took the kids up to Portland Saturday and we checked out the Home and Garden Show at the Expo center.
I had won admission tickets from the PDX Pipeline so we went and checked out all of the booths and beautiful outdoor displays. The kids were in awe of this old claw-foot tub turned into an outdoor spa with a shower sprinkling down .
There were beautiful flower displays and table settings that made me long for summertime again.
After our adventures at the Home and Garden Show we drove over to the Northwest Children's Theater to see Goodnight Moon thanks to the PDX Kids Calendar. The kids were so excited to go back to the theater since we saw Peter Pan which was an amazing performance. The kids were not disappointed and the show was a little shorter - perfect for younger kids. They had a girl that interacted in the performance, but also interpreted the play with American Sign Language, which really captivated Anika's attention.
The final program of the year will be Little Red Riding Hood....the kids are already begging to watch it! I think they may be getting a tad bit spoiled ;) but I'm so glad that I've had the opportunity to do this things with them.
Sunday Wayne had to work a half day, but other than that we all just relaxed at home and didn't really do much of anything. It was great. This week I work a couple evening shifts and then I'm just planning out next month's schedule. Soccer is starting up again, but unfortunately Anika's wonderful coach that she had for years isn't coaching anymore and their solid team has dwindled down and now Parks and Rec is trying to ship Anika over to a different town's team. I'm really sad about it and I'm not sure what I'll do. She's been playing through the McMinnville Parks and Rec for years, and only has one year left to play with them before she's too old, and then there is no soccer offered in Middle school....so she would have to go on a traveling team until High School. I just don't know if I could handle it? I know she loves soccer and I hate to see her not being able to play for years, but I don't know how much more time a league would take from our schedule?
Do any of you have children in sports leagues? Any tips or suggestions? Thanks!!
