Funny Kids

Penelope asked me yesterday when we were driving home from her soccer game, "Mom does everybody have taste bugs?" When I asked her where she learned that word, she replied, "on Sesame Street. They were talking about the tongue." It was all I could do not to laugh.

She's always doing that. She makes up whatever it is she thinks she heard...I love it!

Oh, and by the way, she actually played during the game. She even had an assist and a goal!

Striker's Cup 2008

Jack was able to participate in the Striker's Cup this week. This is the first opportunity he has had to play with his new team the Wasatch Thunder. It was a really fun week with three regular matches which the team won two and tied the third. They then had enough points to play for the championship. Jack's team won 5 to 1 and Jack had two goals and one assist- it was a great time.

Farmington Flash: Newest Players

Announcing the newest players to sign with the Farmington City Flash- Penelope and Spencer.

Penelope, formerly unsigned, hopes to bring charm and beauty to the team. "Pigtails are a very important part of my game plan" Penny was quoted before her first match. Her qualifications are: she's four years old, graceful, and has logged thousands of hours watching her brothers play. She's also not afraid to run hard or push when necessary.

Spencer, formerly with Rush of Bountiful, is very excited to be strapping on his cleats again. He's thrilled to be playing further north and looks forward to finding his role on his new team. He said earlier this month, upon signing with Farmington, "I'm pretty sure this jersey is pink, not white." His qualifications are: speed, energy and the pure love of being anywhere someone is watching him.

Both athletes hope to continue to bring pride to the Fox name, following in their big brother Jack's soccer footsteps. Their parents were quote as saying "we have how many games and practices a week?!?!?"

We look forward to a season full of fun and excitement and many, many blog posts with pictures!

Forgot one!

Penelope didn't actually attend tennis camp with the boys but she tried to participate!

Tennis camp?

This week was the end of tennis camp. I'm not sure the boys learned much, but they had tons of fun.

Spencer dances off the court and more or less goofs off all the time. He is a grade-a clown!

Jack, well, he's a competitor. Even if the game is silly- he's in it to win it!

Penelope plays doctor

Some of us attract mosquitoes- Penelope is one of them.
She came home from swimming with the family and had 10 or so all over her body, including her face. She was itching terribly and came to me for a solution. I applied the cream and thought I had helped. She came to find me a while later to let me know that she had "fixed the mosquito bites"!
