Life Lately

 Our life lately could really be summed up with one word...S-O-C-C-E-R! 
 Yes, fall soccer is in full swing for the Bruce bunch and we couldn't be having more fun!  
Three nights of practice each week, followed by three games each Saturday makes for a pretty hectic schedule,
but it wouldn't feel like fall any other way! 

Four outta five are playing this season, but it's really just a matter of time before little Addy-Kate joins in on the craziness too!
Shane is coaching Sophie and Hud's team again this season, along with Riley's team as well. 
  He enjoys it sooooo much and the kids LOVE having daddy for their coach!
 Corban is no longer playing for CHAMP (our church's league), but instead decided to try out for a  more competitive organization this season.  He had his try out this summer and MADE the team of his choice!! We were beyond proud of him and have really enjoyed watching him learn and grow on his new team. His skills have already improved immensely--as well as his determination and drive to become a better player. 
His first official game of the season is THIS coming Saturday.  
This past Saturday was the "season opener" for CHAMP!  
I'm thrilled to report that both teams were able to secure a WIN!!! 
 Sweet Hudson got the ball, and was able to break away from the pack and score a GOAL! 
 He was over the moon with JOY and couldn't wait to get to his daddy/coach for his congratulatory hug!!! 

Not only have we jumped right into soccer season, but all our other fall activities have kicked off as well.
Awana and Gopher Buddies are in full swing on Wednesday nights--two programs our family enjoys immensely!
This year I'm serving as a Gopher Buddy music leader as well as teaching preschool children's choir on Sunday evenings. Y'all...I laugh because I seriously cannot carry a tune to save my life, but thankfully my precious three, four, and five year old's don't notice... or care;)
I'm proof the Lord can use anyone;)
Add Thursday morning Bible study, children's choir, and other school related activities to the mix and you have a good idea of what our fall looks like right now.    
It's busy and it's full, but we wouldn't want it any other way.
It's just how the Bruce's roll these days!!!

I am exhausted just reading that. Your kids look like they are enjoying their sports and Addy looks like a great spectator.
