Parties, Playing, and Lots of Progress

 Mick had his 5th birthday last week!  I can't believe it.  It seems like we were just bringing our 5-pound bundle home from the hospital and now he is 5.  To celebrate such a momentous occasion, we hosted the (almost) mandatory Chuck E Cheese's birthday party.  The was too much noise, too few tickets, and rather poor pizza.  In other words, the kids had a BLAST and it was THE PERFECT 5-year-old birthday party.  To make the occasion really special, Nana flew into town for the week.  She is flying home now and we already miss her.  It was a great visit.

Let the soccer begin.  Mick hit the field this weekend for the first time.  I don't think the San Jose Earthquakes are ready to sign him for their 2030 roster, but Nana was impressed with his moves.  More importantly, Mick had a great time.  All the scoring and competing will start soon enough, this program is just about learning to have some fun on the field.  It is completely laid back, just my type of soccer.

This is our house!!!  Yes, that is daylight in every direction.  We are "all in" on our renovation, there is no turning back now.  It took 5 days to tear the house apart.  It will take 8 months for all the king's horses and all the king's men to put our home back together again.  With construction in full swing, I am racing around trying to pick out everything for our house.  I am currently surrounded by samples from the floor to the roof and a million things in between.  I have been learning about things like sewer lines and shingles and concrete footings and excavation.  It is going to be a wild ride, but come next summer we should have a new home (fingers crossed).

That is life in MomZania.
