Our last baby is a year old! I can't believe she's one. I can't believe we have a girl. I can't believe we have four kids. It's surreal. Elliot, where do I begin? She kinda walks now, if you're close enough to catch her. She loves music. One of her favorite songs is Cruel by Snakehips ft. Zayn. She's loud and demanding. She's loves getting into anything and everything, making a mess for others to clean up, i.e. don't leave her alone with a box of tissues. She's my one and only "big" girl.

It's too much soccer. The season just begun but I'm ready for it to end. I forget how dreadful it is to sit outside for hours in the scorching sun. Even if you bring your own shade (umbrella or tent), it's still hot as hell. Texas heat sucks. Anyway, this season is Tyson's first year to play! It's hilarious watching these tiny kids run around. It's still in that fun phase, i.e. there's nothing competitive about it.

Summer break is officially over and school starts once again. This is the last year that all of the boys will be going to the same school. Jacob will be going to junior high next year... yikes! Tyson begins real school now, Kindergarten. I was a little worried for him though. Last year he cried on his first day of Pre-K and I had a feeling it might happen again. That morning he was happy and the first one to be ready for school. Everything went well until we said our goodbyes and then he got sad. Real sad. But he didn't cry. He was holding it in, staying strong. My little man. ♥

This past weekend we took our first road trip as a family of six. I wouldn't dare go anywhere far yet since baby Elliot hates car rides so Austin seemed like the perfect destination. Besides, we love Austin. We did the usual stuff like eating at our favorite places (Hruska's, Kerbey Lane, Home Slice Pizza, Madam Mam, Round Rock Donuts) but also tried a few new places (Cream Whiskers, Tacodeli, Lick Ice Cream, Jo's, Mañana). It was all good but one thing that stood out was the kouign amann from Mañana. This is the best I've found that's not from Les Madeleines in Salt Lake City. We did a lot of walking on South Congress and UT campus in 100+ degree heat. And to beat the heat, we took a dip in the chill 65-70 degree water of Deep Eddy pool. It was a fun and relaxing way to celebrate turning another year older.

She looks innocent. But looks can be deceiving.

I was never a soccer fan growing up. Not the slightest interest. But the boys love soccer: they play soccer, watch soccer, play FIFA (a soccer video game). Constantly being surrounded by soccer, it slowly grew on me. This year, there were several Copa America Centenario games at NRG Stadium, one of which was the semifinals match. And as it turned out, it was going to be USA vs Argentina.
