November Catch Up

Things have been crazy busy and I am way behind, so what’s new. So here is a very quick update and highlights from the month of November.

They boys played a lot of soccer in November. What’s new? Thing 2’s team won a tournament.

Oh, and the boys’ number 1 cheerleader.

We also celebrated Thanksgiving in South Carolina.

The kids were able to spend time with their cousins.

They also helped decorate Grandaddy Poppy’s Christmas tree.

Just another month Raising the Cameron Clan!

 

 

Soccer Saturday

Guess where we spent yesterday morning?!?!? Oh, that’s right it isn’t hard to figure out that we spent it at the soccer fields.

Thing 1 played forward and midfield this weekend. He scored a goal and hit the cross bar several times.

Thing 2 played left back and in goal. The highlight of his game was when he pulled a defensive step over the beat a kid.

Thing 3 lead his team to their first victory of the season with several assists and two goals.

All three boys won their games this weekend and had fun. The only one who didn’t have fun might have been Thing 4 who was stung on the lip by a bee. Although it was really swollen yesterday, she is doing great today an it isn’t swollen at all.

Thing 3’s First Goal of the Season!

As you can tell, I’m a lot behind in writing blog posts. Oops!

Last weekend, all Thing 1 and Thing 3 both had one soccer game, while Thing 2 had two.

Thing 2 has been playing goalkeeper a lot. At least one half of every game he plays if not the whole game. So the fact that he scored a goal was a big deal. So much of a big deal that Daddy Cameron sounded shocked when he did it. I didn’t even get a picture of it, but I got a picture of the celebration.

Thing 1 has been playing a lot of left back this year. However, this past weekend, he played right midfield and assisted with a goal and had a decent shot of goal.

Thing 3 and his poor team are kind of mess. There are so many times that Thing 3’s own team mates take the ball from him. However, he has still managed to score some goals this year.

Soccer Season Starts for All

Today was the first day of soccer for all three boys.

We started at 9am this morning with Thing 2. He played the first half of the game in goal and the second half on the field. His team won.

At 11:30am, Thing 3 had his first game. He scored 2 goals today. Thing 3 rocked his first game, but it looks like it is going to be a long season for him. Poor kid was getting pretty frustrated with his team. I only saw the first quarter of his game since Thing 1 had a game starting at noon on another field.

Thing 3’s first goal of the season. (below)

Thing 1 played at noon, with a different group of kids than he did at the tournament. He played awesome. I’m not sure what the final score was of his game, it was either 5-5 or they lost 6-5.

Soccer Season has Started

This year Thing 1 and Thing 2 are playing for a different soccer club than they did last year. Over the weekend both boys played in their first games for their new club. It was a weekend with 8am games both mornings, super warm and humid weather, and lots of goals and fun.

Thing 1 played left back for his team. Yes, Thing 1 is very right footed, but he is making it work. His team won 2-1 in the final game to get first in their group.

Thing 2 played almost everywhere on the field. He started as a midfielder, moved to forward, then in goal and as a defender. His team won their final game after a 3-3 tie at the end of regulation, a tie at the end of over time, and a 1-0 finish in penalty kicks. Thing 2 who played in goal the entire game made 2 saves to help his team to victory.

Catching Up

Obviously it has been a few weeks since I have written anything. Sorry family. Life has been a little crazy and at the end of the day, I am done. We have had soccer every night of the week. We have been working hard to finish up the last of our curriculum for the school year. Three out of four kiddos ended up with a stomach virus, and poor Thing 3 ended up with it twice.  However despite all that mess we have managed to have some fun.

We have built different things.

Made a cake and frosting completely from scratch.  The boys did almost all of the work.

There have been a few other adventures, but I didn’t get many pictures. I have a tiny helper who makes it difficult to take pictures. She really just wants to help.

Just catching up with the Cameron Clan!

Weekend Happenings

We enjoyed cooler fall weather this weekend but that didn’t slow us down. Thing 2 and Thing 3 had soccer games.

The boys watched some Clemson football. Thing 4 even supported the Tigers.

Yesterday evening Daddy Cameron, Thing 1 and Thing 3 set up the tent in the yard as part of Thing 1’s Cub Scout stuff. Next thing I know, they have decided to sleep outside.

Oh, and did I mention that the low was 38 degrees last night? Crazy kids and dad. Despite the cold, they had a great time.

Thing 4 & Soccer

Yesterday was a rough day, Thing 4 only wanted to eat and to be held. Thus, I was very thankful today that she was in a much better mood. So much so that she actually let me get a few pictures of her.
