The soccer season is officially over. Well, all the games are finished anyways. The last game was supposed to be this past Saturday, but was cancelled due to rain. We still have the trophy ceremony later this week. I’m undecided as to whether or not to register him in soccer again. We had a lot of ups and downs. Damien says he’s happy it’s over but that he wants to play again. We’ll see. Maybe we’ll try a different sport next time.
This past weekend, Scott set up his old monitor and mac mini for Damien to use. He’s not using it anyways and it gives Damien a chance to try something new and learn to use a mouse and keyboard. He LOVES it.
Yesterday was my 30th birthday. Scott and I got a babysitter and went to lunch and shopping. It was a great day 🙂
After Damien’s soccer game on Saturday, we all went to the Norfolk Botanical Garden with Robbie, Naomi, and Sarah. Damien has been on a flower kick lately and the weather was FINALLY nice enough for us to venture out. High 60s and partly cloudy–so wonderful! It was also the last weekend to see the Lantern Asia displays. We pretty much celebrated Mothers’ Day on Saturday since all we managed to do today was grocery shopping and vacuuming out the cars. I did get to sleep in and pick tonight’s dinner so I’m not complaining 🙂
Here are a couple pictures I forgot to post from March:
The soccer season is going a little bit better. He’s participating more during practices, but he HATES to lose and will cry during games if his team isn’t winning. He’s already half way through the season. The video below is from the forth game. I was just randomly filming and when I saw that he scored a goal, I was so excited I laid the camera down so I missed his reaction and how happy he was. He’s jersey 2.
Damien has been doing well in school academically, but has started a trend where he’ll refuse to cooperate with various activities throughout the school day. Scott and I have been in contact with his Kindergarten teacher and we’re already seeing great progress. He has a really great teacher.
