Friday 5: Soccer, Cows and Awards

It's Friday!  Not only is it Friday and Friday 5 Time (#Friday5), but my kids get out of school early today and then our Thanksgiving break begins!  Cannot believe how fast time goes.  Join me and share 5 thoughts and 5 pictures from the week.

5 Thoughts

1. I cannot believe next week is Thanksgiving!  Seriously, this year has just flown by.  I will admit I am starting to get excited for Christmas and even want to start decorating, but I will wait until after Thanksgiving.

2. Yesterday I went with Ryder's preschool class on a field trip to a little farm.  The kids all loved it and Ryder's "favorite favorite" part was milking the cow.  I liked petting the goats and they liked trying to eat my boots.

3. I got to see Lourie again this week!  I am doing a photo shoot of a family and meeting this family halfway which ends up being where Lourie lives.  So since I was down her way scouting out locations, well we had to get together for lunch of course!

4. I have a million things on my to-do list right now.. but I also feel like I am slowly getting things checked off.. plus I have everything written down or I wouldn't remember a thing.

5. This last Saturday was Alex's last soccer game. I am totally going to miss this team.  We were playing another undefeated team for our last game... and we won!  2-1!  It was such an exciting game. Alex played goalie first half (and was not scored on) and then mid-field in the second half.  I was hoping she would end up with the same coach in the spring, but then I realized, she is moving up to the next division!  With bigger goals, and off sides... and yeah even more real soccer!

What is your Friday 5 this week?  Love for you to play along.


  1. I too am working through a list of things but as I cross items off, I keep adding more! We're just starting soccer and though I am excited for Elliot's team (he already knows five other people on it) I am also annoyed by them goofing off with each other... and the cold. I knew going in that soccer season is cold but still, I let them do it!

  2. I'm dying to decorate too! Love the soccer team pic. The faces of the girls tell so much. So important to be part of a team. That's a scream how much Ryder loved the cow milking. Great job to the kids for the school success. Way to go, Mom and Dad!

  3. I really think I'm looking forward to decorating this year. I really do need to hunt up the count down calendar this weekend.

  4. I love the photo of you and Lucas. Can't wait to see the next photos from your photo shoot.

  5. I read the "they liked trying to eat my boots" part as "they liked trying to eat my BOOBS" at first! I was like, what?! And then reread it! :) Haha!

  6. Wow, Alex is taller than most of her soccer team! wow! And milking cows is fun :). I want to decorate too but don't know what to do because I know the minute I get our tree up we'll have to move, but I'm also not going to wait and see what happens, I plan on just decorating and being done with it :)
