Life is beautiful – we need to cherish every moment

I’m doing some more catching up here – as I write this I am feeling so lucky that we have so much beautiful love in our lives.  Ella – you are the greatest gift – you are becoming such an amazing person.  OK – enough mush – now onto the pics.  16.jpg21.jpg31.jpg41.jpg51.jpg61.jpg111.jpg121.jpgFall soccer has started up again.  The Black Widows are 2 – 0.  They have been playing some pretty rough teams, but these girls are full of love and support and heart.  It’s a little nerve-racking to watch when Ella is playing goalie, but it’s also so cool to watch these young girls take charge of the field and of themselves!
