Tonight was Kales first day for soccer practice! He loved it! We had a great time out there even thought it was very cold! We are sad that we forgot the camera.....well we didn't actually forget the camera we forgot the memory card! Whoops! But anyway Kale has decided he loves the sport and will continue to play!

On his team he has two other friends Kayla and Jalen. They all had a great time...and not to brag but there were the best 3 on the team! Kale loved to dribble and kick the ball into the goal and did a great job at it. He took turns and didn't get in trouble by the coach once! We were also very happy that he went out played and listened to the coach without us having to hold his hand.

Garden 2011

This year we got our garden in a little earlier, it seemed like a great idea that the time cause the weather was so nice and the forecast for the next 10 days was looking great......but that all changed! It has stayed above freezing for the most part but in the past 2 days it has gotten before 32* so I guess we will see what ends up growing in a few weeks!

As I am typing this it is hailing outside! At least we got a little moisture!

In our garden we planted potatoes (2 rows), carrots (1 row) and peas (2 rows). Kale and Maks were great helpers while we were putting the seeds into the ground! Maks was great at getting the potatoes, he was quite the great planter!

Kale helped me dig a trench for the vegetables he got tired about half way down and tried to quit but I made him tough it out! :)

When I tried to till the garden under before planting I decided that my tiller was not going to work out! So off to Lowe's I went and this is the pretty new tiller I cam home with! I am very proud of my new Troy Built. It works great! The only way I finally talked Erin into letting me get it was promising to till up the yard and reseed it before summer! So that is my next upcoming project! I sure home the grass grows yell....I'm sure it will though cause we are using all natural AgGrand fertilizer on the grass along with the garden!

Well I will keep you updated on the growth of the garden as soon as we start to see some! Oh and I will let you know how the yard looks, too!

We are still here!

Wow! I can't believe it is March already! 2011 is flying by already! It has been a busy few months for us! I can't remember if I posted in my last blog that I have changed jobs....but if I didn't you know now! I am teaching in the Adult Basic Education department at Hutchinson Community College. I have classes in the afternoons and evenings a few days a week. I am loving the job and all the new challenges that I am facing. Although I am currently only working Part-time it seems like a full time job with all the papers I have to grade now!

Kale is loving school....when he actually gets to go! Between sicknesses and days off it seems he only goes a few days a week! His school always seems to have something to close for and he is never sick on those days! But I guess that is how it goes sometimes! He is currently fighting to get rid of pneumonia. We have lots of meds and breathing treatments right now, but we are pleased with his success with them and his ability to stay strong so we didn't have to be admitted to the hospital.

Maks has been sick also but didn't end up with the pneumonia, thank goodness! Maks has truly turned into a little boy in the past few weeks. He is talking up a storm and getting into everything on a regular basis! He is now big enough to wrestle with his brother and get him into trouble! Maks is quite the handful!

Erin is still driving back and forth to Wichita for work everyday, he is not loving the drive but getting more used to it as time goes on.

I have been trying to get pictures uploaded and videos onto YouTube and FB today so hopefully you will start seeing them on here as well. Erin and I went to see Cirque de Soleil in December and I have a few videos that people have been asking about! I finally got them uploaded if you are interested they should be in the scrolling video bar at the top or you can find my YouTube Channel (coconutkeeper). The show we saw this time was Alegria. It was a great show and we reccommend it to everyone! Also I uploaded a video of the boys playing on the stairs that everyone should watch! It's cute, until the end but you knew it was coming! LOL!

Well better get something for lunch!

Kale and Erin playing soccer.

Today we took the boys out to play with their new soccer balls. Kale will be playing on a team in a month and we wanted him to see what a field was like and where to kick the ball. They both had a blast and Kale has quite the little leg on him!
