Soccer mom!

I'm officially a soccer mom.  Anastasia began soccer last week, and this post is long overdue.  Why?  Because this week has been about battling illness.  It all began with Anastasia's first soccer game.  She was too cute!

Not sure why the picture is sideways... anyways, she played great until the last 10 minutes of the game.  Then she got really fussy and clingy, something that is totally out of character.  I tried to get her to introduce herself to the only other girl on her team, and in the process of doing so she threw up.  I thought it was from heat, but the next two days her and David were throwing up, Anthony came down with pink eye (that was cleared up with Breastmilk!), and Charlie and I came down with a cold.  Unfortunately mine is settling in my ear, but the rest of the clan is feeling much better.

David was stuck!

The other night I went out for about 1.5 hours to eat dinner with my best friend.  I seriously needed a mini break from the fighting and back talking and breaking of things.  Sandra and I, along with our youngest (my Charlie, her daughter) went to eat at this new little BBQ place "Swine Dining".  Delish!  Arriving back home became a wee bit comical.  I entered the front door to see Chris lightly tugging on David and David looking absolutely sheepish with his arm stuck in the subwoofer up to his shoulder!  All of our children have played in this thing, and a few times a year Chris takes off the back to empty it of toys that have been dumped down there.  This was the first time, however, that a child had become stuck in it.  And like the good mommy I am, I took a video.  I took three actually.  He began crying during the first one so I shut it off, the second one was just an update, and in the third he was out!
