Flopsys Notes: Nap Day

Dear Mommy, I love you, and I miss you a lot! I was at Grandpas and Grandma’s house. But then they dropped me off at Auntie Joyce’s, now I have to stay at her house ūüôĀ . At least Jonathan is here. It makes it more like Grandpa’s.¬†

Today I had to take a nap. It was not fair, even though I was tired. Every one else fell asleep and no one would play with me so I decided to take a nap on the couch.  Auntie Joyce was too tired to notice me on it. When Adrian woke up he saw me, I had to get off the couch. 

I have been having some fun, and I got to eat all my food!

I love you

Love Flopsy

  

  

Soccer – 17 May


On Thursday we had a game, we either tied (6-6) or won (6-7). The ball went back and forth across the field. Once we almost got the ball into the goal, but it went on top of the goal and got stuck. The goalie had to jump to get the ball.

I don’t know the exact score because of a crazy play our team made.¬† The goalie came out of the goal to get the ball.¬† He missed the ball.¬† Our team came up, stole the ball from goalie, who was still not up from missing the ball and was not touching the ball in any way and made a goal.¬† The referee did not count the goal and we can’t figure out why.¬† Our coach said it should have been a goal and he did not know either.

Flying Kites

We went to the park and flew kites. Only one worked and all of us played with it. The wind blew good then it stopped and kept blowing good then stopping. We had a contest on who could keep it up the longest. We do not know if Andrea or I won. Once we were done we had doughnuts for lunch.

Soccer

I am playing soccer with GYSO again this year.¬† I am on the 6th to 8th grade¬† boy’s team.

I like my coach, he comes up with new ways for us to practice.  Yesterday we jumped over hurdles and ran around cones. He also encourages me to try hard.

We had our first game and the score was 1-3.¬† We have a make up game today at 6:30. Hopefully our corrected uniforms will be in!¬† There was a mix up on everyone’s shirts ūüôā

7 June Tournament

Hiking

Two weekends ago, we went to our friends’ house.¬† We have been friends with the Sellers since Mark was little.

Megan, the older boys, and I made a large train set. It had houses and buildings with it. One Megan used to dump people into trains. Another building turned the trains so it would dump, we dumped Lego people with it. 

On Saturday we went on a hike. The place we hiked had a lot of rocks and caves. We went into a cave and pretended it was very small but it was very big. Another cave had pictures on the rocks. They were neat. There was some snow, and we had snowball fights. One snowball smacked me right in the face and my nose was cold for a few seconds. We had lots of fun.
