Now Announcing Our New Starter for US World Cup

Number 7 Rogelito LastNAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMEEEEEE!!!!!! Ok so right now that is just a dream in my head. I have always dreamed of having my son be the athletic child. A child who was well rounded in every sport. However being a stay at home mom I had to sacrifice that because of financial issues. On last Saturday my prayers were answered. We were driving past a new place called Play It Now Sports and I ran in to see what it was about. Imagine my surprise when I walked in and saw soccer fields, baseball fields and even basketball! I went up to the counter thinking there was no way in heck we could afford this option for our son. However, when they handed me a registration sheet they informed me that registration was $69 and get one sport free. I ran to the car like I was running on air and told Ro. He told me we would see.

This morning we went and registered. Lil Ro had his first practice and I wept when he missed and begged him to play well but most importantly he had fun. We got his team assignment and we have been assigned to the Wildcats! Now here I am busy as a bee.

This is my schedule for the week now. Some may say I am crazy but I love every moment.

Monday: Nothing
Tuesday: Roana Spanish Club
Weds: Roana Student Council
Thursday: Roana Sport's Challenge
Friday: Roana Science Club
Saturday: Lil Ro soccer and soon t-ball
Sunday: Nothing

We have to fit in groceries and the Y there too somedays. I guess at least a busy family is a happy family and at the end that is all that is important.

Little Known Fact About Me

I still remember that day like it was yesterday. My dad and I rode to the Chevy dealership and test drove a 1994 Chevy Lumina Minivan. I loved the long windshield and the nice roomy interior and even the teal green color. However unfortunately I also remember the way his face looked when we got denied for our perfect family car. I swore to myself someday I would have that family car no matter what it took.

For the past year we have battled with our VW passat and for the past year it has won. We told ourselves this year we would not buy another car. However one evening as Ro and I drove home parked on the side of the road was our car. It was a 1994 Oldsmobile Silhouette. I came home and did some research and found out the car was priced decently. We loaded up the kids and called the guy and did a test drive. The van drove like a dream. Ro and I did not want to appear to excited so once we walked in the door I told him I would offer $1200 for it. The guy countered and offered $1250. I would have been stupid to walk away from that.

We picked up our van today. It is everything I could want. Heat, air, and lots of room plus decent gas mileage. I keep teasing Ro now about filling it up with kids. That is what soccer parents do right? Yep I am on my way. Future soccer mom and loving every moment of it including my little stick family on the back of the window. 17 years later and I finally got my family car and my kids are loving every second of it.

I am so stinking excited

I got a new baby. Ro felt bad that I was always lusting after the new Canon Rebels and Canon Pro Powershot Cameras. We walked into a pawn shop and sitting on the counter just hours released she sat. Barely touched and shiny and smelled brand new. My baby got me a sweet little Canon Powershot SX10is. It takes beautiful pictures. I cannot wait to take more this weekend and share them on here. With my pretty new camera I will enjoy every moment again as it starts warming up.

Here are just a few results from my baby.
