The kids had their last soccer games of this season yesterday. I unfortunately didn't get any pictures from Meredith's game (it was at 8:30 am and super cold, so I stayed home with the other kids while Kris went). Here are a few from C's last game. This was the first season of soccer for both the kids, and they learned so much. And they really liked it. We are planning to sign them up for the Spring session as well.

After a morning/early afternoon of soccer, we tackled the back yard. It was literally covered in leaves...a brown and red blanket that went from fence to fence. I wish I had taken a "before" picture! Last year, we raked a little bit at a time. This year, we waited until all (or at least most of) the leaves fell and just got it all done in one day. It was a lot of work, but we had lots of little helpers which made it go a little faster. At one point, Caleb's friend J came over and we put him to work also. ;)
