Archer’s Soccer team is called “Fireball Dragons” (because they couldn’t decide on one). This is Archer’s third year of Soccer.

He played a small local league in Polson when he was 4, and after we moved to Oregon, he played on the McMinnville League (which Plays 7 weeks in Spring and 7 weeks in Fall). (Ashton’s been very happy to coach him every year so far.)

Last year, Archer had been very tentative and unwilling to try to take the ball from an opponent (unless it was Dad or Atley =)). At the end of last year, he started to be less hesitant, but this year, he’s all tenacious ferocity.

The ball even hit him in the face and he still got the ball back and took a strong shot.

And even with Coach’s best efforts to focus on passing to each other and getting open, Archer scored 9 goals today. Anna caught 3 of them.

Coach is very happy to see him and his team improving so much. We’ve had wonderful weather and a great group of kids and parents.

Both of our boys have had bikes for the last year at our new house, and they have enjoyed riding around the driveway pad, but in the last two months, they have really gotten into it. They’ve been out there riding in a circle on their training wheels almost every day.

Saturday, I finally found a second adult bike! So Sunday, we took our bikes (and Goldie) to the local park and rode around town as a family.

(We’ll get better pictures next time.)

I took Archer’s training wheels off for a little while and ran around behind him holding him up to give him a feel for it. He’s not quite ready to try on his own yet.

We’re very proud of Archer for spending a week of full days away from his parents at Scout Camp. And it turns out he’s a natural shot.

Every day he would come home with a another target full of bulls-eyes. (It’s a pretty large target for Tigers, but he’s very excited about being good at it. He got a “shots of distinction” certificate at the end of the week for making 5/5 bulls-eyes.

Here’s some photos of the last day, when us parents were invited for dinner and the campfire.

Some Pictures from the Lego Party in Salem. Everyone had a great time. Even Nana and Ashton 😉

I asked Archer if he wanted me to paint a picture for his birthday. He said he wanted the Millennium Falcon. While I was drawing it, he came up and complimented me on it. I thanked him and said, “But you can’t see this because it’s for your birthday.” He looked away and said he didn’t see it. Ha.

A couple days later he saw it again and said, “I can’t wait to get that for my birthday.”

“Get what?” I asked

“Nothing. I don’t know what I’m getting for my birthday.” Haha
