Anyhow, I wanted to recap our weekend because it was a good one! Saturday was our last soccer game of the season. So bittersweet! It's been so fun watching Mason play and really get into soccer. But, I know that summer is not a good time for organized sports for us. We are gone most weekends on little trips here and there. We lost our last game, but the kids did really well and had fun. And they still got medals, so they were all good!
Sunday was church! I woke up feeling pretty much like a mack truck hit me, but I wasn't running fever which meant I was NOT missing church. Mason loves to put our tithes in the offering plate at church and always goes down to the end of the pew to wait. I looked down and saw this sweet moment and knew I had to capture it. This is the father of one of our really good friends and he and his wife are such loving people. All the kids in the church call them Nana and Papa. We just adore them. This is a true example of our church - a big and loving family!
Sunday after church Nate had to go into work for a bit. Mason and I hung out at home. He found a movie on Netflix and he let me rest for a while. It was glorious. I can't remember the last time I have napped.
Nate got home around 5:00 and said that his brother had located the goat that escaped earlier that morning. So, we all went outside to watch the goat chase! It was quite comical. They finally got her corralled into my in-laws property. We thought it would be okay after that because they have a fence on all sides of their property...just needed to catch her. But, the goat proved to us otherwise. She ran straight through the fence and into the 150 acre cattle ranch next door. We just knew they would not come home with her. But then they proved us wrong. Nate and Ty brought her back! Poor thing. She was probably terrified.
It was almost as good as the time we went to town only to discover that we had taken some chickens along for the ride.
While the great goat chase was still commencing Mason jumped on the trampoline and I begged him to let me take some pictures. These two shots cost me $2 bucks. Ugh! Little turkey! But...popsicle face, messy hair, dirty hands...isn't that was summer is made of?
Then it was time for some whiffle ball. Mason has really gotten into baseball lately and wants to play every evening with his dad! He is doing so dang good, too. They've been working on hand-eye coordination, hitting and catching. He's really caught on. I'm praying this means he will want to play baseball again soon!
And that was our weekend! How was yours?
