I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking the kids to scout camp. I want there to be a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

Late summer and early fall mean soccer season at our house. This year we had 3 boys playing.
Kaden had an awesome team this year and they had a lot of fun! He learned so much about the game and how to play the different positions. His best position was defender, which he got pretty good at. Their team only lost 2 games and those were close games.

Tyson had a great time in soccer. Not only did he learn and improve, but 2 of his best friends were on the team with him. He also loved playing defender, but I think it's because he didn't have to run as much. They don't keep score in his age division, but they had a pretty good team and his coach gave him defender of the year award for his team.

It was Brennen's first year playing and his dad was his coach. He was the youngest kid on the team and it showed. He would get really distracted and forget a lot what he was supposed to be doing, but he had a great time and was especially excited that he got to have treats after every game!
