Today is Ellie's birthday.
It seems like yesterday that we moved back to Boston. At the time Lauren was 5 months pregnant with Ellie. And today she turned 6.
We started the day with soccer. Her team, the Pink Poodles played the Yellow Ducks. I have to brag a little here. Ellie was fantastic. She was running and working it non-stop and had a bunch of goals. This breakaway turned into a goal too.
After Ellie's game we went to Sophia's game. Sophia is on the traveling team and they played Lincoln today. Our team won and Sophia had a great left footer in for a goal today too.
This afternoon we had a fun party for Ellie and her little friends. It was a beautiful day and everyone had fun.
When I tucked her into bed tonight she said , "thanks daddy for my party. i had a great day today. i love you. good night"
Parenthood can be exhausting at times. But tonight it's pretty darn sweet.
