Spring Activities

After we got back from spring break, it was time to jump right into spring activities! Abbey has been singing in the school choir all year and they got invited to sing at a Chicago Wolves (minor league hockey) game. Our whole family went (minus Matthew who stayed home with a sitter since the game started right around his bed time) and had so much fun.  Here they are singing "Best Day of My Life".
You can see them on the jumbo-tron!
One of Abbey's friends in her class's Dad played for the Wolves, so after the game he came out to meet them and sign autographs, which was really fun. 
Ben also had an exciting opportunity.  Because his soccer team won their division in the league (and went undefeated, I might add), they were invited to a Chicago Fire (professional soccer) game where they would be recognized on the field for their accomplishment. So again, we took the family (minus Matthew) to a Chicago Fire game!  
We had great seats and got to sit with his team.
Go Arlington Aces!
Hard to see, but there they are on the giant soccer field!

And you can see the Arlington Aces symbol on the Jumbo-tron!
It was a very cool experience.
Just a cute one of Matthew and Mommy time while the kids are at school.
While we prepared for Abbey's First Communion, Juliette tried on my First Communion dress and loved it.  I am not sure she would wear it for hers next year (or if it would even fit her then), but I loved getting this picture of her in it, headband and all.  My little mini-me!
And although all 3 older kids played soccer this spring, I apparently only got a picture of Juliette ready for one of her games.  We spend Saturday's racing between games and often have conflicting games so Paul and I divide and conquer, which means pictures don't get taken I guess.  Too busy living life, but I did want to acknowledge that they all had great spring soccer seasons!
