Paxton had his first soccer game Saturday morning. I can't believe he was able to function since we didn't get in from Florida till 4am and his game was at 8am. Rusty is coaching...though he knows nothing about soccer he is enjoying watching Paxton be so excited about sports. Paxton said he didn't care if we signed him up for football and baseball too. Not sure how I feel about every Saturday being booked, but it is so fun watching him. He did score a goal...but he scored in the wrong goal. Rusty said that he knew he had scored in the wrong goal but everyone convinced him he had scored right. He was so excited. He came home that morning and told me a play by play...He said mommy, "Everyone was screaming Go Cardinals". Also, thank you to PatPat who came and watched after being awake for 24 hours coming home from Florida.

SueSue and PatPat recently purchased a cabin outside of Canton. It was so nice to come home after a long day at Canton and have a place to call home. We did lots of projects two weeks ago..the guys painted, laid wood floors, and fix lots of little things. Also, PatPat bought a toy: A boat. We had so much fun riding the boat. In Paxton's previous life something traumatic happened on the lake...he hated everything about the lake. Mackey tubed along with Renee Rea and I. Although Paxton did not like the lake he LOVED fishing. He stayed out late fishing with PatPat and Rusty. He caught his first fish around 10 o'clock and we had to all get up to see it. Monday morning we woke up to 15 huge ducks wanting their breakfast. They were literally eating out of our hands. We are so excited about the memories that will be had.

First day of school. I was in Canton so Mary and Rusty did the honors of getting the kids ready. They were both really excited! Mackey was so excited when she found out that her bag had light up wheels. I am so excited for Paxton this year as his teacher is a retired kindergarten teacher and very serious about their education. Mrs. Diane sends home a weekly news letter and all. I was thrilled to learn that Mackey would have Mrs. Joni, We love Mrs. Joni. There is no pic of Mackey and her teacher because the pic of Mackey is horrible. I am so excited about the time that I am going to have with Miss Kirby...and all the errands I can run without having to take the whole gang in.
