Dilan's season with the Sunnybees went fairly well. She really liked kicking the ball, even to put two goals in the other team's goals. But during one game, we met a Select Team coach who said, "as long as she's kicking it and she wants to kick it, she's doing well!" Dilan definitely likes to kick the ball but she would get so excited that she wouldn't think about where she was kicking it to. But something clicked when we signed her up for indoor soccer during the winter. She played amazing defense and scored goals, as many as 4 in one game! Dilan is learning the game of soccer and she is getting into it. It's fun to see her improve and gain confidence. Her indoor soccer coach of the Stars asked us if she had a team to be on in the spring because he had openings. He was recruiting Dilan and really wanted her to play on his team. But we are sticking with the Sunnybees in the spring.
Dilan also tried a dance studio this year for the first time since she's been taking dance. I signed her up for ballet and she lasted a month. She said it was too boring even though she had three friends in that class with her. I couldn't blame her; I hated ballet too so I took her out and put her back in gymnastics which she loves. Dilan smiles the whole time she is in the gym and her cartwheels are awesome. She is working on her handstands and backbends. :)
Drake played soccer for the first time this fall with the Black Knights. He actually had another player named Drake on his team. It was a bit confusing when we were cheering for him but Drake really enjoyed playing. He scored goals and he even got into some pushing and shoving matches, sometimes with his own team. :) Overall, Drake had a good time playing and really wants to do whatever Drew and Dilan do.
That night we went to the trunk or treat at church. Dilan chose not to dress up as Anna which is her Halloweeen costume this year but chose a ballerina recital costume instead. Dakota did a great job learning how to trick or treat. She loved getting he candy and putting it in her pumpkin. I think these kids are ready for Halloween!!!

Drew and Dilan enjoyed running the Nichols Dash this year. It was Dilan's first time and you can see the excitement on her face. Drew ran nonstop and completed 37 laps which was over 3 miles. (12 laps=1mile). Dilan ran 20 laps which was almost 2 miles. The funniest part was that the fourth graders took off so fast and most of them stopped running after two laps. Drew just kept going the entire time. And the kindergarteners ran much farther than the 4th graders! They just kept running and running. It was fun to watch. After Dilan's run, we were at the water table and Dakota put on a show with her dancing. She loved it :)

The first day he had his backpack on and ready to go almost an hour beforehand. His friend from church, Luke, is in his class and in the car Drake was asking me if Luke was in front of us or behind us. He wanted to know if Luke was at school yet. Once we got there, Drake had no problem going right in and coloring his picture of a school bus. He waved by to me and Dakota and that was it. This kid is so easy and happy and he loves school. :)
