Indoor soccer

Owen got a new haircut from Aunt Tiff and he loves it! 
Tiff said he was charming all the girls by showing off his spanish speaking skills....  
yesssssssssssss spanish is taking over his brain!

 We also started giving him allowance. 
I was really nervous and thought it was too much too soon I didnt get allowance until perhaps jr high...
We got this cool chart from the Dave Ramsey Program just for kids 
He has an opportunity to earn up to $5.00 per week I know shocking amount of money!!
He has to check off what he does every night and then we pay him. 
Owen is also learning about Tithing and so far its been a little rough but we have a whole year to work on it before he will be 8.
He worked really hard for about 2 weeks. The first few days he lost money for not doing some things on the list or not listening to mom and dad. 
The first goal he made for himself was some $7.00 toys. So when he reached that amount off to the store we went. I have never seen that boy so proud of himself! 
 These pirates are pretty special to this boy and he is really getting the value of a dollar!
 Indoor soccer has taken over our free time and he is liking it pretty well. The "field" is way smaller and so far he has been injured:
Kicked in the head by ball x2
Kicked in the stomach/privates by ball 1
Jumped over the black edging to sit out and tripped landing really hard on both knees :(
after the knee think he said he only wanted to play outside soccer on the grass and I agree
 This is what happens most of the time for practice. The rest of the team is listening to coach and Owen is running around like a nut!
He has got this funny little victory hand shake he does with his buddy when they make a goal. It includes a chest bump....who teaches this kid these things?? I will try to get it on video next two games then we are done for a month till Basketball starts.
