Jack is very excited that Daddy is coaching his soccer team (the Triceratops!) this season.
Grace is so happy to be on the Turtle team again this year with Coach Drew.
Eve is also playing soccer this year. She will be on the Mini-Kicks team and will begin practicing in September. Eve cheered Jack and Grace on as they had their soccer kickoff over the weekend. Eve showed her full support by wearing her shin guards and by watching her older brother and sister practice for nearly four hours! She is such a trooper.
Grace is serving as the assistance coach of Jack's team.
After about an hour of Eve and I watching the soccer meet together I told her, "Don't worry Evey girl...only three more hours to go!" Here is her priceless reaction. :)
Gracie balancing on her soccer ball!
We are all looking forward to an exciting soccer season ahead...

Grace, Jack and Eve made homemade salsa using tomatoes, peppers and cilantro harvested from our garden!
Here are Grace, Jack and Eve harvesting the items needed for some salsa making!
Lots of ripe tomatoes were harvested.
Grace and Jack has a great time together making their own salsa!
Eve did a great job cutting up all of her salsa ingredients using a pair of scissors. It's actually much easier and much more fun to cut the ingredients using scissors rather than a knife...and safer too! It's also a great way to sneak in some fine motor practice! :)

Eve enjoyed spending time at a little petting zoo. She especially loved the rabbits!

We enjoyed listening to the live band. Grace, Jack and Eve hit the dance floor later on!

When all three of my children were babies and toddlers I did lots of sensory activities with them. Their favorite sensory activity was playing with "cloud paint" (shaving cream). Over time, as my children have grown and have outgrown playing with cloud paint on a tray, the activity has evolved into this...it has now become a great summertime activity to fill their little pool with cloud paint for some extra fun sensory play.
Oh, and the clean up is just as fun too!
