First things first...

Hello everyone. I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Ours was pretty busy, as always, due to it being soccer season. But it was totally alright with me, as the weather was BEAUTIFUL!!!

Jayla had a game at 10am on Saturday. And I found out how anal I REALLY am. I had no idea I was that way. NORMALLY, this soccer clubs colors are some combination of red, black & white. The kids have ALWAYS worn black shorts and had one red shirt (w/ black & white) and one white shirt (w/black & red) and one pair of black, and pair of red socks.

But this year, for the U6 teams, they changed it up a little...which was fine. This year, they have the standard black shorts, black socks and white shirt...AND a navy shirt (w/ red design) and RED shorts and socks. Ok, I'm cool with that. It's really cute together. HOWEVER, when we picked up the uniforms, NO one told me that the red shorts were REPLACING the black ones.

And recently, they've been wearing the navy and red uniforms. But this weekend, we were to wear the white shirts. So OBVIOUSLY, they're supposed to wear the black shorts & socks...RIGHT??? WRONG!!! We get to the field and Jayla's ENTIRE team has on their white shirts with RED shorts & socks. She was the ONLY one on the field with black on. I was SICK!!! A couple of the moms tried to "comfort" me and tell me that it's no big deal...well of course it's not, YOUR daughters have on the correct uniform! I'm telling you, had the game not been about to start 5 minutes after we got there, I would've gone back home and gotten Jayla's red shorts.

Oh well, it turned out ok. I don't think Jayla even noticed :-). Oh, and with only 2 games left in the season, our coach decided to "officially" change the name of the team :-). Now, instead of the Cheetahs, they are now the Lil' Stingrays. More than half of the girls on the team have brothers that play on Markell's team, the Stingrays. So it only seems fitting, doesn't it?

Speaking of the Stingrays...they are KICKIN SOME HYNIE this season. They've only lost one game and that, only by 1! They are doing AWESOME!!! Markell has been playing goalie for the last few games as our starting goalie broke his finger.

Let's see, what else did we do this weekend:
~went to some friends house for a cook out. Talk about DEElicious!!! For some reason, I'm always the one to bring dessert...what's up with that? lol I made Dump Cake this time...YUMMY!
~went to Sunday School yesterday. My DH worked until after midnight on Saturday, so he was a little tired yesterday. So we didn't go to service.
~Jayla had a photo shoot yesterday at a local park. Friends of ours have their own photography company and needed Jayla to update their website and portfolio. That girl is a natural! She had a ball.

Welp, that's about it for our weekend. How was yours? Did you do anything fun? Tell me about it!!! Enjoy your week!
