Hoot hoot!

These are the stuffed owls Grandma Gwen made with Madeline. They turned out so cute that it was hard to stop! One became five and then before we knew it, there were about 40!

We called them "Hoots" and gave each a tag with their name on it because they were all unique. The girls had names like Chloe, Makenzie, and Olivia and the boys had names like Dexter, Emmet, and Brady. They were so cute! We had Matt's mom, Barbara, sell some at the Puyallup Farmer's Market.

Sounders game at Starfire

We were able to see the Sounders play Chivas at Starfire (their practice facility) which was really cool because we were able to be really close to the action. A lot of families from Zoe's soccer team were there so we sat in a big group.

Madeline and Hayden, before the start of the game... it was beautiful and busy day! (Same day as the first day of school)

The Sounders stretched and warmed up right in front of us. That's Freddy Montero with the curly black hair.

The Sounders band got everyone riled up and then it became a big party, just like the games at Qwest field. Loud and full of chanting!

Our little Sounders after the game. (I made that Sounders afghan for Hayden)

Sounders Family

In the wee small hours of the morning Madeline and Hayden get ready to catch the bus (at 6:45am) Madeline is going to her first day at White River High School as a freshman! Hayden will be at Glacier on his own!

Later, after the sun is up, Zoe and Carson get ready to catch their bus to Mountain Meadow and start 5th and 3rd grades.
