He wanted everyone to know the cool brand of his sunnies…real D 3D, pretty awesome :)

Also, you probably see the booboo on his forehead, well boys will be boys and he face planted on the gravel…oops.

If you’ve ever played FIFA or watched a soccer game in Spanish, then you’ll understand the title of this post.

Anyway, Luke and Mark have been playing soccer together on an indoor men’s team called Stroller Striders, cute name huh? :)  Most of their games are after Calvin’s bedtime, but this week it was at 6:30, so we were able to support the boys!

The game was stressful as you can see from the look on Calvin’s face.

Our team scored, then the other team scored, then our team scored, then the other team scored…for the whole game until we finally won 6-5!  Go team.

VA Living Museum

We headed to the Virginia Living Museum today with Jessie & James and Amy & Joshua.  It was a really nice museum full of fun exhibits and animals.  I didn’t really get cute pics of Calvin, but here’s what we have…

Mow that Lawn

Anytime Calvin sees a camera or a phone, he says “cheese.”

So the reason we got the camera out was because Calvin thought the grass was too tall and needed mowing.

Look at that strong boy!

He’s thinking the grass might be too tall to mow.

The Line Up

Calvin was trying to figure out “who done it?”

The water is all murky b/c we gave him an oatmeal bath to relieve a rash he got.  Don’t worry, the rash is all gone now.

First Goodbye

Calvin and I had to say our first goodbye today to our friend Mary Frances.  She taught me all the ins and outs of being a professional organizer and has her own business, Orderly Places

Mary Frances - 01

Not only is she an organizer, but she is a big time quilter.  Look at this awesome quilt she made for Calvin to go with the book The Quilt Maker’s Gift

She has been a great mentor and friend, and we will definitely miss her! 

Eat Mor Chickin

Friday was Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A, you dress up like a cow and get free food.  Of course we took advantage of that deal!

Calvin & I met up with our friends Jeni & Evie and Amy & Joshua for lunch.

Well because it was free food and all, we headed to the other Chick-Fil-A for dinner that night :)  No, I’m not that cheap, I just really like CFA!

Calvin wanted to see the cow.

But he was too sure about him.

So he needed to double check that he was a friendly cow.

He was, but just to be safe, Calvin stayed a safe distance away.

Little man also got a sweet hat!
