Knight Family Pictures

Before Leslie left to head back to Spain we decided to have Jeff take some Knight Family Pictures. The kids were less that cooperative but some how he still manages to take some great pictures.

Soccer Season has Started!

So Ben has moved from Summer T-ball to Fall soccer. Tonight was his first night on the PURPLE TEAM for Tiny Tonka Soccer. It was a beautiful night to be out and after just a few minutes Ben had his cleats on and was ready to run. They start with some VERY basic soccer drill for 30 minutes and then they played the YELLOW TEAM for the remaining time.

Passing to Cullen

Even Olivia got into the game! Look at that excitement

Getting ready for face off with the yellow team.

All in all the night was a success. Similar to T-ball that game looked like organized Chaos but the kids all had a great time.

New Siding and New Swing Set

After re-siding last fall as part of the addition we realizing this spring that the siding was bad and here we are replacing it again (luckily at no cost to us). Trevor started the demo last week and Jamie and Tim came Saturday and Sunday to start putting it up on the house. I spent most of the weekend painting it before it was hung and hauling to the drying racks that now take up our entire driveway.

A TRUE boy after a long day of helping the boys in the yard with the new siding. He was covered head to toe in dust and dirt and was happy as could be!

Daddy's helper safety glasses and all

This is the new swing set! It was moved a whole 40 Feet across the fence line from our neighbors yard. It needs a few new things but the kids love it!

Another Summer Has Come To An End

What would the end of the summer be without a trip to the Great Minnesota Get Together! We introduced Ben to a long time Alm family tradition last year as he made his first ride down the big yellow slide. This year it was Olivia's turn and she loved it. She got to the bottom after the first trip down and she just kept saying "more,more".

The other highlight of the night for them was not the food but rather climbing on all the equipment at machinery hill.

I ended the summer with a weekend at Middle Cullen with the kids while Trevor was in the boundary waters. You know fall is just around the corner when you spend all weekend in long pants and sweatshirts while having a fire in the middle of the day.
