Catching up- Soccer Stars!

In January, Haven had her first soccer class!!  And Venily had her 2nd soccer class (her first was when she was 3 and she wouldn't even go out on the floor, just clung to my legs and cried, lol).

Haven did well (especially compared to Ven at this age!).  The first class she cried quite a bit and I had to stay with her, but she still participated.  The 2nd class she cried a tiny little bit and the 3rd and 4th classes she didn't cry at all and did really well, I was impressed!  She really improved with her skills as well!

Venily did amazing!  Long gone are the days when she would freeze up around a man!  Both of their teachers were guys and it didn't phase her at all.  She was high-fiving and yelling bye to them in the parking lot, etc, lol!  She also turned out to be quite a good soccer player!  She really improved a lot over the month as well and was really into it by the end.  Jason wants to put her on an actual team, but we'll see if it fits into her very busy schedule!

Both girls still play soccer all the time, lol.  We got a soccer ball and they dribble it all around the living room and take turns pretending they're Keegan and Ed and teaching the class! :)

Catching up- Christmas eve and Christmas day!

The girls really had a great Christmas this year! :)

Christmas Day!

Daisy Investiture ceremony and cookie selling!

I'm so proud of my little Daisy Girl Scout!  Here are some pictures from her Investiture Ceremony!

And she did amazing selling girl scout cookies! It was very cold out and she was sick for some of the selling time, but she went out there and sold door to door and wasn't even shy! :)  She met her goal of 147 and got 2 patches, plus a shirt and some other little things.  She was very proud of herself!

We also signed her up for summer day camp this summer, so I'm really looking forward to that!  I also signed up to be a volunteer for the first 2 days, so that will be really fun!  She has a taste of day camp coming up in March as well.
