Soccer practice

From Instagram: First soccer practice of the season! {You know those families that have perfectly styled hair and adorable outfits wherever they go? Yeah, we’re not them.}

It’s been several years since our oldest played Upward soccer and none of our other girls have played a team sport yet, so this year — despite the craziness that has been our summer — we signed the three big girls up. {Our almost 5-year-old is just excited to tag along — ha!}

Right now, I’m actually looking forward to spending Monday evenings and Saturday mornings at the soccer field, where there’s a fun playground and plenty of grass for Jackson to explore. Let’s see how I feel in September when we’re juggling soccer, Classical Conversations and American Heritage Girls, though!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading and what I’m pinning to see the other posts that make me stop and think (or, you know, drool…). You’ll find new posts all week long!

Have a great weekend!
