Doug coached Rachel's team in  soccer this year. They had a fun year, making it to the championship game where they lost in overtime 3-2.  We had a year-end pizza party at our house to celebrate the season.  After the party one of the player's parents asked Doug if he was going to coach again next year and thanked him for coaching this year.  He also asked him, "Do you have a lot of experience coaching?"  It made us laugh and also cry at the same time.  We realized that we have had a child play AYSO soccer for 23 straight years.  This was Rachel's last year.  I think our coaching experience improved through the years.....I coached Ashley's team when she was 5....named the "Mean, Green Soccer Machine."  We were defense oriented....we didn't score a goal the entire year!

Pillow Project

When Rachel and I were in Utah we bought this upholstery material at Hobby Lobby with the intention of covering all of our couch pillows.  Later during the trip we were shopping with Mary and she found new pillows at DI that were this color-scheme.  I was jealous of her purchase and thought to myself, "What was I thinking.....actually getting out my sewing machine."  Well Rachel and I dug out the machine and actually finished.  Now we are planning on painting our red wall this bluish/green color.
