Every 4 years, Americans get excited for USA soccer. This year has had many upsets and has been very exciting. We are so proud of our USA team for advancing. This is a video of the USA's reaction from Landon Donovan's extra time goal. It was amazing to watch and I wish I could have screamed when he scored, but that would have woken up Evan from his nap. Anyway, this is great to watch.
Also, in 1994 when the World Cup was here in the United States, I got the opportunity to attend the Bulgaria vs Greece game in Chicago. It was amazing to be in the stadium, to experience the atmosphere, and watch a great game. Btw...I'm rockin' that Chicago hat! ha! :)

This week in recording my youth it's all about being six and in first grade! My 1st grade teacher was Mrs. McClellan and I loved her. I remember helping out other students. I remember playing soccer with all of the boys at recess. I remember always wanting to go to the library to get books to read. I remember studying for our spelling tests. She was a great teacher and when I was in 6th grade at the school, I went back to her classroom to help those first graders learn to read. It was even more fun because my little brother was in her class then!
I was always writing and drawing growing up and this year my mom saved some letters I had written. Obviously Willie McGee was my favorite player growing up. I can't believe that she still had them!
Thanks for reading this week and don't forget to head on over to Mommy's Piggy Tales to read more stories. Next week is 2nd grade!

Today we had a fantastic day at the pool. Kayla and her girls met us there and it was fun to catch up and relax for a couple of hours. Evan loves Maddie and Annie and it was fun to watch them play.
Evan is into giving big ol' open mouth sloppy kisses. It was cute to watch!
Love that big smile! :)
A perfect end to pool time....wrinkled baby feet!

We spent a great morning at Rock Bridge State Park. It was still cool outside and great to get out of the house and get some exercise and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

This is week 2 out of 15 in recording your history over at Mommy's Piggy TALES. This week we are recording our preschool/kindergarten years.
Today I want to share with you some pictures and memories when I was little so one day you'll know about my growing up years.
I got a new puppy and she sure is cute! I was afraid of the puppy at first so I used to run and jump on my mom and dad when she was coming. Now I am getting used to the dog and I can run with her and play together. My puppy's name is Nuggett and I can even say it.
Christmas has always been my favorite holiday growing up. Not because of all of the presents, but because we were always together as a family. I remember Grandma decorating the house and Grandpa Merritt going out to get a huge Christmas tree and bringing it inside the house. I remember all of the Christmas cards going up on the fireplace or on the refrigerator for us to look at. I'm guessing this was the year E.T. came out! :)
On August 4, 1981, I became a big sister and your Aunt Kelli was born. Below was written in my baby book
I got a new sister on August 4th. I can't wait until my mom and dad bring her home. Mom tells me she looks alot like me! I talk to my mom every night on the phone and tell her I love her and miss her. I know it's going to be different when mom gets home especially because I was getting used to her big belly! My little sister is SO small. I love to go up to her and kiss her on the cheek. Mom tells me that I am not jealous at all and that she is really proud of me. I like to change my babies diapers just like mom changes my sister's diapers.
Pyloric Stenosis and threw up everywhere! She had the operation and was all better, which I know Grandpa and Grandma were relieved!
Below is a picture of my first day of school. I remember loving my backpack! It was red with a stoplight on the front. I thought I was so cool heading off to school while your Aunt Kelli and Uncle Brad had to stay at home with Great Grandma. My kindergarten teacher was Mrs. Loyal.
