it's official...

we are soccer parents.  i am a soccer mom.  molly started AYSO soccer today and it was so much fun.  she has all the gear....cleats, shin guards, socks, and ball.  and she, of course, looked cute as a bug.  she is really, really fast - but really needs to learn to run with purpose rather than just running.  because she'd run really fast straight out of bounds.  or she'd run really fast with her head down and run into someone else.  and she rarely paid attention to where the ball was.  but....she's fast.  eventually she'll learn the other stuff. :)  she'll probably learn from her incredible coach....her daddy.  yep, dustin signed himself up to be a coach.  he's crazy.  but he'll do a great job hollering at 4 and 5 year olds and helping them to have lots of fun.  i'm glad he's doing it.  we are both excited about it.  it will be a great chance for molly to learn a sport (which we are really pumped about) and also a great opportunity for us to meet new people and maybe impact some lives for Jesus.  yay for soccer.

i'm so thankful today.  i love my precious family.  and i love the bruno's - who are here visiting from italy....they get to stay with us until 9/11.  i love that i have a house that can accommodate all of us comfortably.  i love that molly & anyssa are getting along so well.  i love that gianni has been making some killer italian meals that we get to enjoy.  and that he has been so willing to watch the girls for us if we need it.  aunt stefania and uncle gianni are amazing people.....they love Jesus.  they are so sincere and beautiful.  i love them.  it's a joy and pleasure to have them here with us.  here are some pics of our kids together.
