Spring is here...I think!

We Sumners get very excited when the sunshine is out! Ellie is SUCH an outdoors girl, so we like to take full advantage of a sunny day by taking a walk, going to the park, playing in the backyard...etc. This weather has been such a tease lately though; it will be beautiful out one day and then be raining the next we are very much looking forward to the rain-free days that are ahead!

Ellie is totally into soccer and loves kicking her soccer ball--then chasing it--then kicking it--then chasing it. This works great for getting all her energy out! :) She's now starting to "dribble" the ball and then she sets it up in front of her so she can give it a good hard kick. She always has to do a few "running in place" steps though before she kicks it. It is so fun to watch her! We can't wait for the day when we get to sign her up for soccer! I think she will love it! Her daddy has been teaching her some of his "soccer moves" which he is really proud of. :) I have to say (and not just because I'm her proud mama!) Ellie has some serious power in her kicks for an almost 2 year old! I'll have to post a video of her playing soccer so you can see what I'm talking about. It's really cute! My computer hasn't been working so I haven't been able to download any pictures from the last few months, but here are a few Jeremiah had on his computer...they are mostly from our recent trips to Tahoe and SLO which were so much fun!
