Last Night

Last night we had our first experience of what it is like to have a family our size. It was soooo much fun!!! Jenise had chorus after school and needed to be picked up by 4:00. Then once a year with soccer, they hold an evening game under the lights. This happened last night. Edward's game was at 5:00, Joseph's was at 6:00 and Jenise's game was at 7:00. Then Danny had tryouts at 7:30 for the travel basketball team. He did not make it but has had such a great attitude and still wants to play in the community program. (which is easier for Mom and Dad) The first few shots are from Joseph's game. He is in black number 9 and he played goalie for part of the game so he has that yellow thing on. I did not take any at Jenise's game. I had parked far away for Edward's game because there were no spaces(they have something like 18 teams). For Joseph's and Jenise's the spaces opened up and Mommy moved the car closer(knowing that it would be very dark by the time we were done). Mommy left the camera in the car and locked the door. JiaLi had a friend at Jenise's game that shared his Fisher price digital camera with her and she was hilarious. The moon was out but the clouds were passing over it. She held the camera and kept saying "wait"..."wait"... and then when the clouds passed, snapped the picture. So cute!! The perfect word for watching Edward play was "fun". We were cracking up his entire game. Only 4 kids from his team showed up so they had to play the whole time. He normally has games at 7:45 a.m. and he was like watching a new person. I guess he's not quite a morning person. He was so full of energy. He may appear like he is holding his hand up to say #1 but he is really just waving. He had a big smile on for almost the whole game. Of course, our neighbors were on the opposite team. There is a little girl named Betsey(Tessa's sister) and they were each making faces at each other during the game. Love this age when the game is not so serious:) O.k. I guess I posted a lot of pictures. I just had to share these of JiaLi. I was trying to take some of her in the flowers. I wanted to share how concerned she is about this tree having leaves. This is the same tree she was trying to put leaves on in our previous post:)
