I'm a football player!

For a month now Will has been saying that he wants to be a football player for Halloween. No amount of persuading towards costumes he already has in our closet (Buzz Lightyear, skeleton pirate, Mickey Jedi) did the trick.

"I'm a football player!" he says.

Well, thanks to Grandma Debbi - who found a cool football outfit (ehh, uniform/outfit/costume? insert manly/boyish title)- Will is in football heaven! He won't take his outfit off and when I do pry it off of him, he carries it around!

Now all I need are some burly shoulder pads and some wicked black paint for under his eyes and he's set! **insert Tim the Toolman Taylor's manly grunt here!**

Soccer anyone?

I guess it's fitting that I write my soccer post after Olivia is finished with her fall season! She really had a great time playing on her co-ed Kindergarten team. It was nice that she had someone on her team from her class and that she knew at least one person from every other team she played. After her last game, all of the kids received a trophy. Boy was she excited!! We are displaying it proudly on our mantle.

Shortly after Olivia started playing, we signed Will up to play as well. He wasn't quite old enough to play on his own so he is in a parent - toddler class with Greg. He ABSOLUTELY loves playing. The uniforms that they gave the kids are adorable too! Luckily with his soccer he can continue to play through the winter since it is indoors.

Just realized as I was about to upload pictures of Will that I really don't have any good pictures to share! Hmmm, that makes for a good blog post! Here he is from the back! He is number 2.
