One exciting thing that happened last week was my best friend, Jen, had her baby girl. Baby Mackenzie was born on Thursday morning and I was so excited to get the text that she had arrived! I got to go visit them on Friday at the hospital and just loved getting to hold that sweet baby girl. I'm so excited for Jen, Justen and big brother Parker!
Saturday we crammed in all kinds of fun that included a birthday party, Harper's last soccer game, Handley's cheerleading and then a fall festival at our old neighborhood. It was so great to see everyone and the kids had so much fun playing with their friends. It made me super sad to hear the girls asking us why we had to move from the place where we had so many friends. I know once we are settled in our new house and meet some more of our new neighbors they will be happy, but these season is just hard on us all.
Cheerleading was fun and nice because it was an away game and the person in charge of keeping the clock some how kept things moving along so the game didn't drag on quite as long as usual. Also, Walton won again and things are looking good for our team to do well in the play-offs!
Harper's last game was especially exciting because Gigi and Papa got to come watch her play. Gigi, who just had knee replacement surgery less than 2 weeks ago, amazed us by making the drive and the incredibly long walk to the soccer field. Talk about dedication! Harper was so happy they were there and got to see her play a great game and score a goal!
Right after the game they had a pizza party and gave out trophies, which she was thrilled about. She is so proud of it and has shown it to everyone!
Harper has been asking to take the training wheels off of her bike for a a while now so today was the day. She still needs a lot of practice, but was really excited to say she tried it.
