Camping, Soccer and Julia's 4th birthday!

Phew! I think it took me like 30 minutes to upload all these pictures (and not because I have slow internet either, I've got high speed baby!) and now I've got to do a little write up. We went camping at Poncho's Pond this weekend. It's the annual Halloween weekend and the kids had a blast getting all dressed up and trick-o-treating around the campground. We also had our 2nd to last soccer game. We beat the Lane team for the 3rd time! Wooohooo! Wagn'Coop is still the U-10 champs at this point. We have one last game on Satuday against the Willick team. They usually have a good team, but I think they got the shit end of the stick and we should easily beat them. Coach Cooper and I got the kids trophies for they efforts and I can't wait to see them. :-)
Today was also Julia's birthday! It's a day to celebrate and a day to mourn a bit in my mind. I'm beyond thrilled to have such a beautiful, smart and funny little girl as my daughter, but at the same time I know there is a mother grieving for her daughter that she will never see on her birthday again. Plus, I don't really know if today is her birthday. It was estimated by the orphanage and so this is the day we celebrate. Either way, we had a great time at Grams and Pop's house. Julia got tons of gifts and loved opening every one. :-)

Looks like you had a great time at all of your events. Julia has grown so much, its just amazing. I'm sure her birth mother remembers and misses her little one during her birthday month, but hopefully she holds on to the knowledge that she is with a very loving family and hopefully she knows she has a terrific mother taking care of her.
