Team Crush

Olsen has started indoor soccer. He is on Team Crush, along with his friends, Ben, Peter, and Sean. I was told not to expect too much, so I just figured it would be total chaos. Which it is, but since I was expecting so little, I feel like it is better organized than I thought it would be. It is pretty funny. They spend about 10 minutes doing a little drill, where each kid tries to kick the ball into the goal, and then they play a "game" with another team. It is funny to watch. Olsen has such a good time just running around and being generally silly. Getting to the ball is a secondary objective to him. Below is a video that I think is pretty cute. Olsen actually kicks the ball and then later he falls for no reason and afterwards, Peter falls on top of him.

Easter update

I haven't updated in awhile. Jovie is now 9 months old! She is not crawling yet, but she is really close. She can somehow get around by scooting to where she wants to be. She doesn't eat a whole lot of solids, but lately she has been enjoying shredded cheese. My babysitter has been watching her twice a week for 2.5 hours each time. Jovie cries when I hand her over but I'm told she stops when I leave.

We had a fun Easter. We decided to have an Easter party and not counting Jovie and her baby friend, Vivi, we had 11 kids here. I was a little worried at first, but it ended up being pretty fun. Kids can entertain themselves for the most part.

We also got a lot of cute pictures of Jovie in her Easter dress.
