Fireballs



Gage is playing on an indoor soccer team called the Fireballs right now. They play at an indoor arena near our house. Right when you walk in there are about a million candy/junk machines. You know what I am talking about every mothers nightmare and every childs greatest joy! Everytime we would go to a soccer game the kids immediately started asking for quarters. Gage asked Adam for a quarter and Adam told him if he scored a goal he would give him a quarter. So now everytime Gage scores a goal he looks over at Adam and I and holds up his fingers and tells us how many quarters we owe him. Gage gets more excited about the quarters than the actual goals he scores. It is a little embarrassing because the other parents probably think we are obsessed with our son scoring goals but whatever works, right?

I am a huge fan of bribery and I am very competitive so you guys are 100% in my book! Whatever it takes to score, right?

Those candy machines break me. And don't you just hate it if you don't have quarters and you suddenly find yourself next to a million of them.. that is the ultimate worst. On top of that when I do have quarters, they choose Gobstoppers, and the whole time I am yelling at them to not brake their teeth! I hate those things!!!!

Your kids are so cute. I can't wait until Tatum is old enough to play sports. It is probably so fun watching them.
