Our Smallest Nephew

I became an aunt again a couple of Fridays ago, and this weekend Derek and I got to meet the newest nephew, baby Elliott. He is really little and really sweet.

And we got to spend some time with his older brothers. These guys were lots of fun.

In addition to family fun time this weekend, we also had 2 soccer games on Saturday. Derek and I coach a sweet little 2nd and 3rd grade girls soccer team. Even though we're in the 2nd to 3rd grade division, our whole team is made up of 2nd graders, and even a couple of 1st graders who are playing up. We have been the smallest team in every game we've played so far. But they are playing tough, and we have only been beat by 1 goal in one game and tied the other two. Which considering how much they mature and grow in the course of a year, is really good. I think next year when they're all 3rd graders we will be the team to beat.

After our second soccer game we went up to Cincinnati to go to a Reds game with our friends Brent and Karin, who live in Florida and were up visiting for the weekend. We had been planning to go to this game for a while and it was just our luck that it happened to be the game in which the Reds clinched the NL Central Division. It was a really fun game to be at.

Afterwards we went back to Brent's parents' condo, which has a great view of the Ohio River and downtown Cincinnati. Yay for little babies and fun weekends!
