The things we do...

1. play soccer for my kids
It was Juventus 98 vs the parents... again. Joe played goalie, I played defense (kind of). We are so sore that everything hurts!


Pepe against his coach from England.

Joe, the goalie...

Warm-ups...


2. go to fantasy movies
I don't like fantasy, but my son does. So, I was off to see Percy Jackson and the Olympian Lightning Thief. I went with both of my boys and we picked up a friend (a girl that we've known forever). It was a good experience and my boys were happy. Pepe did tell me that they didn't follow the book -- he was a little bummed about that, but he still liked the movie.


3. Attend and Volunteer at the school carnival
YUCK! Not a carnival fan -- but the kids had a blast. They won candy and plastic toys and were just happy.


4. Stay up late to drive and get child from a late birthday party


But it it those other moments that make it all so worth it... like when I hear Phinneous reading to Baby Girl or Pepe teaching Baby Girl about math... those moments are priceless.

when one of my girls was little I dressed up like a gypsy and read palms at a school carnival. I was a hit.
