LE and I invited ourselves to watch Carter play soccer Sunday.  Sue was out of town and since Nick was coaching the team, Bamma and Big Pat had been called in to "handle" the Diva while the game was going on.  LE and I tagged along, since I had yet to see a game.

Before the game, the team had their pictures taken--both individual and team shots.  They were all so cute and were looking forward to practicing and playing in the game.  Callen took this opportunity to give us a blow-by-blow rundown of what they had been doing while Mommy was gone.  She commanded attention and told us everything--from the time she got up until the time she went to sleep--about where they had gone, what they had done, and even what they had eaten.

Once the game started, we all were cheering for the team and Callen was giving both her daddy and her brother directions from the sidelines.  Carter had some really good kicks during the game, but it seemed to me that he liked rolling around in the grass after he kicked more than anything!

Callen took a slight interest in LE during the game.  She turned around in her seat and checked LE out in the stroller and commented on the fact that LE was sleeping.  She finally condescended to walk around and look at LE in the stroller with Big Pat and Bamma and she even touched her--even though it was one finger on one toe, it's progress!  I'm glad to see that she's warming up, even if it's just a little bit.  (I think it might have helped that Sue wasn't there holding LE too.)

It was a great afternoon and I'm so glad that I got to see Carter play!

They are all so much fun. Cannot wait for L E to be big enough to enjoy the excitement.
