I am “sneaking” on to share how proud I am of Andrea and her willingness to try something new.
After a lot of rain and the weather turning colder, we decided that Allan would take Andrea to her “away” soccer game and the rest of us stay home. Andrea’s team played 9 players with no trained goalies against a team with 11 on the field (and 5 substitutes) for the entire game.
At half time, the first goalie sub was cold and tired, and coach told Andrea to replace her. Andrea has never played that position, has never even wore goalie gloves, but she went and tried her best.
Unfortunately, we forgot to send my camera with Allan, but he was still able to use his phone some….
Great job Andrea, we are very proud of you!
Today I had my season’s first soccer game. It was a good game, but tough. We lost 1:3. (I think we only scored one point all season last year 🙂 )
This week, soccer started. I have a new coach and some new team mates. We have only had three practices, but I think I will really like him.
If you would like to come to one of my games, this is my schedule for this season. The bold games are home games.

(Wow, this is the first year, in at least three years, that no game is scheduled on Mother’s Day! Surprise!)
Last month we babysat our cousin. Nora had brought her pajamas. Megan had a pair that sort of marched. Megan declared “We are twins!”
Megan and Nora had fun playing and copying each other.
Happy puzzle day! I hope that you have fun doing this word search that we designed today.
Click on the word search and then print. Please let me know if you do the puzzle. Have fun!
I felted our neighbor’s dog for them. I really like the way it turned out.
We entered the Elkhart County Parks Photo Contest again this year. I put in seven pictures. It is my last year that I can submit pictures in the “youth” division.
Photos will be displayed at the Elkhart County Historical Museum (304 W. Vistula Street in Bristol, IN) from 10:00, 20 Jan thru closing on Friday the 26th. It looks like the hours are 9:00 am – 5:00 pm Tuesday through Saturday.
We plan to go Saturday morning. Maybe I will see you there!
I wanted to try an experiment. I took a good pizza crust we like and a dutch oven bread we like and combined them. All the measurements are approximate 🙂
- A little less than 5 cups flour
- 1 Tbl sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 2.5 Tbl yeast
- 2 Tbl oil
- 2 cups lukewarm water
- Mixed all together.
- Knead dough well.
- Let rise in greased bowl till doubled.
- Preheat a dutch oven in the stove at 450.
- Carefully put dough in dutch oven and place in oven.
- Bake for about 30 minutes with the lid and then take lid off for the last ten minutes or until bread is golden.
- The bread will sound hollow when done.
- Cool before cutting
I think I would like it a little fluffer. So next time I would punch the bread down and let it rise again when I preheated the oven. Another thing I will try is shredding cheese to put in it.
I learned to needle felt. I got the materials for Christmas. I like doing it. I want to do a dog next.
When I was younger, I wanted to learn how to make cream puffs. Momma let me. It was easy and fun. I made them again last night, but with home made Nutalla instead of chocolate.
You can also find the recipe here and the Nutella recipe here.
