I have so much to share with you, yet no time to do it in. Between school, work, being a mom, wife, friend, housekeeper, frugal shopper and Lost follower; I'm so sorry to say you've been on the back burner. It's not my choice, really, but I must sleep sometime in there, too.
Don't feel too bad, Dykstra Blog, my reading has been hit hard by our schedule, too. I don't even have a book going right now. And it's not your fault. I tell myself I will get you all caught up... but I know you well enough to know you understand and are willing to pick back up whenever I can.
Here's hoping to reconnect with you soon. Love, Kelli.

We have found a gem in our city called FROG Soccer. It's a FREE soccer camp/practice/lessons for kids ages 4 through 7. Free!
Each week, both boys get to practice, rotating through several drills & games that teach soccer skills (along with listening & following directions even though you are so-excited-you-can-hardly-stand-it-skills).
Then there is a scrimmage at the end of each session. They even keep the age groups separate so I don't have a monster 7 year old mowing down my AJ.
Side note: AJ’s buddy, Noah, is in his group. We’re not sure if it’s good thing for those boys to be together or not when the atmosphere is structured. We are praying for their preschool teacher this fall, already.
Back to FROG Soccer: It's pretty well organized and parents take turns bringing in snacks and drinks for the kiddos at the end of the session. Today is my turn... I'm totally bringing in the Fruit Roll-ups and Capri Sun, I scored from Meijer not too long ago.
Thank you Gary and Friends, for giving me a free excuse to be outside in the evenings and good outlet for my boy’s energy.

I got the card to the left from Andrew. He made it at school, along with the basket of flowers. And each flower is a little something he wrote for me.
