Adoption Decrees and "The Hands"

We FINALLY received the adoption decree from our state. Whew! That took a ridiculously long time. Grant's re-finalization only took a few weeks and this one took a few months. Now Jake can get a U.S. certified birth certificate (actually certificate of foreign birth). Next week, I'll be working on a social security number for him as I have been busy  putting that off too long. 

All three kids had games at 9:30 today so I was back and forth between the boys' games and Omi watched Allyson's game. I know, I know. More soccer pics.  The boys have their last games next Saturday and Ally has one tournament towards the end of Nov.  Next week, after the games, we're off to someplace fun though!

Jake starts out with great intentions at the beginning of his game.


Then, the middle of the game....not so much.


By the third quarter, he starts asking coach if it is time to do the hands. He just wants to do "the hands".
In fact, he walks around the field like this asking and re-asking.


Yeah! Finally, "the hands!"


Grant plays hard the ENTIRE time. He doesn't slow down a bit and runs through all four quarters. (I got a nice line in one frame of my pics using the sport setting. Darn it!)





He comes home muddy, dirty, sweaty. Just like a boy.  Too bad I don't have any of that energy today! I'm out of it all!

"the hands"....love it. Is there anything about Jake that isn't endearing? :) I can't imagine how busy you all have been with all the soccer stuff. Gosh, how do you keep up with anything?
