This past week....

Soccer ENDED! It was an interesting season. The boys missed the cut off to be in the 3-4 league by one week. This meant that they were the babies of the next division. They were playing with some 7 year olds. We cheered like maniacs if their foot touched the ball. I do not kid. Sometimes it was by pure accident and they were just in the way of the ball and it bounced off their shin guards and we made them think they had just scored a goal. :) They enjoyed it though and we enjoyed watching them.

Eli was not pleased with how long it was taking for him to get his trophy in the pic above.  The poor coach was VERY patient with our little guys this year. IMG_6394
That smile was worth the wait.  Yay, Alex and Eli!
We also went and got pictures with Amanda before her senior prom.  She looked beautiful.IMG_6554
He used to throw her around a lot when she was young.  I guess Uncle Jared was taking advantage of one more time.  :)

Now we are just looking forward to getting away this Summer.  Jared is done with school and Soccer's over.

Eli Henry

Eli LOVES his long hair.  Mama loves how soft it is and think he looks handsome in it, however, I feel guilty when it is 90 degrees out and my son has long hair.  He doesn't want to wear it back in any way whatsoever becasue "that's how girls do it" which means it is not real practical for the Summer.  Enter:  Mama's Mission.  First to convince Daddy.  He is NO easy sell.  He ADORES his baby boy's hair.  Second to convince Eli.

I "innocently" started browsing pinterest for boy haircuts.  I started with shag styles that were just a bit shorter than Eli's hair.  Eli wanted NOTHING to do with it.  I then stumbled upon this picture and Eli's eyes lit up.  He was SO excited to get his hair cut.
Eli says he'd get his haircut if he could do it like this!
Once Jared saw how excited Eli was he relented.  As we were leaving Jared second guessed the decision.  I drug Eli out the door though and headed to the hair salon.
Off we go.
We love it!  I asked him to come outside so I could get some pictures and he turned into a male model and posed.  He even layed down on the ground as shown below without any prompting.  He is a character this one.
Love this kid.  Mom's Happy.  Eli's Happy. Alex liked it before.  Daddy is in mourning.  :)
The End
