This coming up weekend all three of the girls will play. Delaney will have her first club games and William will start recreation soccer soon, his first game will be September 12th.
I love soccer. I love watching my Things play soccer. I love watching Gillian defend the goalie and not allow anyone to score. I love watching Makenzie while on a break away to the goal use her body to shield the ball and realize that she is one strong girl! And I love that our entire family, all 6 of us, can be at the soccer fields together and cheer for each other, and laugh at each other's ballet moves on the soccer field, and rise to our feet when our kin does something that she/he has been practicing. That is family time. Outside, in the heat, turkey sandwiches from the cooler and bug bites from playing in the wild flowers next to the field. Ah, I love it!

I am not always so organized, productive, and efficient. And well, that's OK. Who knew? I guess God did. God knows me, in fact He knows me better than I know myself. He is not ever surprised by my laziness, procrastination or my lack of umph! To imagine someone knowing me that well, the ins and outs, the ups and downs all the thoughts that I think, the bad and good, the desires of my heart, that is overwhelming. That alone makes me want to sit here and ponder exactly the One who knows.

I love the morning air. The freshness of it, the promise of it and the feel of it on my face. I enjoy being reminded with every sunrise that His mercies are new each day. I revel in the fact that there is hope.
I am thankful for the moon and that last night when I picked up Thing 1 from soccer practice there was a full, bright moon that our God put there for us. It was breathtaking. We both stood and stared as it peeked at us from behind the clouds.
I am finding the praise today in being a Mom. In having all that "stuff" done and being able to do it from home while my husband works diligently for us away from home.
I won't apologize for the rambling that this post has turned into. These are the thoughts that were swirling in my head this morning. Now they are here in blog land and no longer causing clutter. So there it is, because I can.

On this very day we were introduced to this hairy creature by our neighbor Bob. Yes that is a large brown spider and yes that is an egg sack attached to her back side. She was not too pleased to be in captivity, although I don't think neighbor Bob was all that excited about her hundreds of babies being released in his yard.
