Both kids received great awards this week! Drew killed it with her academic achievement in ELA and Math, while Brady was the only student who received the citizenship award plus perfect attendance! You rock kids! STAR prepping has begun! The reward was good ol Jamba Juice!

The Three Amigos headed to Nugget for the pre Bodega Bay trip shopping experience! We killed it! The kids switched from crossing off the list in the iphone Cozi list and the cart while Daddy pulled the items off the shelves! We were in and out in less than 30 minutes! Brady looked at the list and noted that we picked up 102 items! Can you say "Rainman?!?!"

Life has been getting the best of us! With school in full swing, work schedules, daily homework assignments, four nights of soccer with a couple of games on Saturdays, Derek's off season training, photography jobs on the side, several parties: Canadian Day, October birthdays, Halloween etc....but life is GREAT!
Couple of weeks ago I had a shoot and needed a hand with the reflector, I recruited Brady and he did a great job helping me out in many ways! You have a job Brady!

Well check this one out, Drew's team got her first win this past week! Awesome for the girls!
Just prior to the goal that got the girls the win, Drew got tagged by a ball on her face, so she wasnt on the field when the goal was scored, but look at her face in this shot!
The pre-game "warm-up!?"
A few minutes later, we were watching Brady! This was a game that Brady will never forget!
Why? Because today Brady scored his first goal! Thats right! Brady was just in the right open spot when the cross came, unlike a couple of weeks ago, he made it!
This weekend the family was invited to attend, a perfect day with games back to back, early and awesome weather! Thanks to Nana & Papa and The Orick's for making it to a memorable day for the kids!
Post game wrap up! Yup, Drew and Mila were beat!

The girls managed to look decent this past weekend! Some great signs of improvement! Awesome to see! They lost, but the improvement alone is a win!
This weekend Drew played goleira for the first half! She did ok, someday she'll listen to her goalkeeper dad! Her true position is forward, shes got the "it" factor and plays a little pissed and aggressive!
|As you can see, Drew still holds up a great smile!|
Brady's team basically got their ass handed to them...on a platter! The opposing team passed and managed the ball much better than the Tigers!
Poor Brady missed, literally, an opportunity, that players see once in one hundred games, to score!
A funny pregame shot! Love it!

While this would be a trip to the "Fazenda" in my days, around these places, they call it a "petting zoo!" Anyways, it was still pretty cool for the kids! Brady sure seems comfortable around animals of all shapes and sizes! Drew tends to be a bit more reserved! Still a great opportunity that we wish we could offer more often.

The second round of soccer was at Bryte Park and the games were back to back! Yeppy! Drew was up first! her team is still struggling a little bit due to lack of experience and some basic fundamentals, on the flip side, Drew has now scored on two consecutive games! The shot above says it all, the feeling after a goal is THE BEST!
Believe it or not, it appears that the lefty uses her right foot when playing futebol! Totally cool!
And here he is cashing in on the opportunity!

Thankfully our games were in the same area, with an hour between each game, which we used to have lunch! Drew's game was first, she played well, almost scored a couple of times! The girls need work, and Drew needs some conditioning if you know what I mean! She ran her tush off!!
Brady's team pulled off a 3-1 victory! He looked good for the most part, lots of improvement considering he didn't play last year!
Proud of our kids and their teams, should be an exciting year!
