soccer season starts

T started soccer practice this past Monday. For once, he isn't the smallest kid on the team! lol He did pretty good despite the fact that he missed a couple of seasons. He was excited to be playing again. K thought she should be able to play as well because she kept trying to play in the goal and even ran to get in line with T so she could kick the ball. The other parents and the coaches were all chuckling at her enthusiasm to get out there. One of the coaches told her she was like lightening (which happens to be the team name). So, from now on, I think she will be staying with the grandparents so that I can actually watch T practice instead of run around chasing her. He wants to play football in the fall instead of soccer. We'll see how that goes. He tends to whine a lot when he gets hurt so I don't know that football will be a good match for him, but he may surprise me.
Spring Break is coming up in a couple of weeks. Not sure what we are going to do. The kids will be with their dad the first couple of days, but after that we have the rest of the week to fill up. I've been thinking of trying out geo-caching, but have to figure out if my phone has GPS capabilities (I'm sure it does) and how to use it. Well, that's about all going on around here.

little by little

I'm trying to make this new life and create a stable and loving home for my kids. I received this at the end of an email and it just sort of fits right now.

Free Your Mind from Worries

Expect Less


Don't know who said it, but I think they are wise words indeed.

Believing...

Kutless - What Faith Can Do
From the album It Is Well

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you are stronger, stronger than you know
Don’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard
Impossible is not a word
It’s just a reason for someone not to try
Everybody’s scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It’ll be alright
Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

Overcome the odds
You do have a chance
(That’s what faith can do)
When the world says you can’t
It’ll tell you that you can!

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do
That's what faith can do!
Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise
