wiped out

It's 8:30 on a Sunday night in June and both of my kids have been asleep for the last 20 minutes. This never happens, no exaggeration. The heat and the events of the week must have caught up with them and taken their toll. It's all good- I am enjoying the quiet :)
Evan's team had their soccer picnic today, and it was a blast. Of course it had to storm heavily and we had to hide indoors, but before it did they had tons of fun.

Here's a shot of the tug-o-war contest, with Evan's team being pulled into the soapy pit. As you can tell they really disliked it.
Actually, I think he may have just dived in for fun. I would be willing to bet money on it.
Obviously his dislike of bathing and soap in general didn't make this activity any less fun. Maybe I'll set up a soap pit in the yard and throw him in, once a week, just so I know he has come in contact with soap.
He is also now totally waffling on quitting soccer for football. Ever since they played in the Cincinnati tournament he has changed his mind a thousand times. Rush tryouts are next weekend, and we told him he has to decide by then. Also muddling up the equation: he wouldn't be staying with the same boys. They have changed the cutoff birthdate, and he would have to stay with U9 (what he played this year). But he would get to have his coach again, and for him this is the deal maker. So I don't know what he will choose.
Hope you had a good weekend and stayed cool!

Love the photos! I'm sure whichever decision he makes will be the right one. Consider how hard it is to make those decisions as an adult! :-)
