Is that really a teenager?

We spent some time with the Wolseys yesterday who we haven't seen for some time. Ian was a bit moody, which is pretty much par for him, and was grumpy at everyone while we were shopping at Gateway. After a while Tif asked, "Is this what Kepler might start acting like? Is that really how teenagers are?"

Avyrlie's new dance class

Dance, originally uploaded by eouio.

Enrolled the monster princess in ballet and tap today. she was so excited she could hardly contain herself while we picked out shoes and an outfit for her. She found a leotard with a longer, flowing skirt and proclaimed "I LOVE THIS! Can I put it on and dance now?" She has a week till the first class during which time I have no doubt her head will explode at least seven times each hour with rapid anticipation in the form of non-stop chatter about how much love she has for dance class. I can see Ian's eyes rolling now ;)

Championship Awards Banquet

After an undefeated season and championship win, no one was complaining about a little 'overtime' at the awards banquet. The coaches really love the kids and like to give them a bit of the praise they've earned this year. Here's a clip of Ian's award presentation:

End of football 2009

End of football 2009, originally uploaded by eouio.

I realize the photo has nothing to do with the subject, but I found it the other day and thought it deserved to be posted, relevant or not :)

Ian has bus last game coming up this Saturday against Highland. We beat them pretty soundly earlier in the year, but managed to edge out Olympus in the play-offs which means they must have done something right. I seriously doubt we have anything to worry about except keeping our heads in the game, hands on the ball, and making sure we avoid silly penalties.

We are still down one star running back (#20). He is out for the next 8 months recovering from knee surgery. Jury is still out on whether he will be playing next year. It's a tough injury so I wouldn't fault him either way.

Ian ends up picking up a a lot of slack with #20 out. As much as I love to him running the ball, I'd like to see some more kids getting into the action as well.

Maybe next year...
