Peyton had his first soccer game this past Saturday- He is on team Geecko. He was so adorable on the field.... He did really well for his first game! He has 6 other teammates on his team, only two are new to soccer, including Peyton. His team scored 3 goals, the tigers scored 2. Yes, they don't keep score- but Mommy was counting. They did drills before the game and had a huddle at halftime. All the parents did a cheer line at the end of the game for the players to run under. It was very cool. He is having fun. Brendan can't wait to get to play soccer in the Spring. I had a hard time holding him back off the field on Saturday.

our little kindergartener

peyton has completed his first two weeks of kindergarten already. he is doing so great! he has been able to write his name for a year and a half now, but now he is working on his middle and last name. he knows the letters- it's just remembering the order. that's what they are working on at school. his favorite thing so far are the assigned jobs- he's been "door holder" and "scissor-passer-outer", but not "line leader" yet (he said that in a sad voice). he loves kinder and he loves his teacher- ms. amy. there are 13 kids in his class. his best friend from pre-school is in his class and he was very excited about that.
peyton also starts soccer this sat, the 9th. he can't wait. i might have problems with brendan because he'll want to play, too, but he is too little to join the league.
wow! my little boy is growing up!!

swim lessons

the boys had their first swim lesson today. it was an adventure! peyton already loves the water, so no problems there. little brendan likes the water on occasion. they both did really well today, though. peyton learned to float on his back and he practiced his kicking. he also played games in the water. brendan's group took turns jumping into the water to the instructor, head totally underwater! he did it twice. i was very impressed. the last time we took him to our pool, he barley wanted in the water! what a difference. i am so proud of them both. 5 more saturday sessions to go!

South Dakota Fun

Here are a few pictures from our vacation in South Dakota. We had a blast at Old McDonald's Farm. The boys loved the goats. They climbed all over Peyton. Brendan wasn't so sure of all that. He did pet them, though. Peyton was so cute when the animals would eat out of his hand. He would just giggle and say "it tickles!"

Bear Country USA was fun, too. We drove through and saw grizzly bears, mountain lions, big horn sheep, elk, and wolves. They also had a lot of bear cubs that we were able to watch play and climb trees. They are so cute.

Mount Rushmore- Brendan kept calling George Washington Johnny Appleseed. It was the funniest thing. They just talked about him in school and I guess the hairstyle confused him. I didn't even know he knew who Johnny Appleseed was. By the end of the day he knew it was really George up there.

We had a blast camping and spending time with Grandpa and Grandma Sharp. The boys enjoyed riding their bikes around and Peyton even met another little boy nearby to play with.

starting a blog

so, i wanted to do a website but i don't have enough time to do that. i want a site where family & friends can come on and see pictures and read the happenings of the sharp family. i hope this works.
we just got back from a week long trip in South Dakota. the black hills are very pretty. we saw mount rushmore, bear country usa, old macdonald's farm, the badlands, deadwood, and spent time on the lake. the boys had a blast!
i will add pics of the trip soon.
i hope everyone is doing well.....
