A Few Tidbits

You probably didn't know we were gone, but we got back from Disney World last Tuesday. It's nice to live in a city like Woodstock with small town feel and growing suburban conveniences while being only an hour from a large international airport like O'Hare that can take us to Disney World or wherever else we may desire to go.

If you haven't read it yet, you should read Woodstock's Vision 2020 and see where the city is planning to go. And while at the Woodstock city site you should make sure you don't miss the Future Residential Development map of Woodstock. Lot's of changes coming, well, if the housing market holds up to the plans.

The fall WAYSO soccer season is over. We loved the season, but need the break. I'm sure soon enough we will be looking forward to more soccer in the spring.

Woodstock + Soccer = Fun

Our three youngest, our boys, are all playing soccer this year for the first time with WAYSO. It's been a hoot. Jack (8) is having the hardest time of the three because he's the oldest and knows the least about the sport since it's his first time. But he's still having a great time. Elijah (6) is a natural athlete, though small for his age. He already has two goals this year and hasn't really played offense all that much. Daniel (4) is in the part of WAYSO where you just kick and run and laugh and then quickly forget you were playing soccer in the first place. But he loves it.

We really enjoy seeing the parents at all the games, meeting new folks, laughing when funny stuff happens on the field, and cheering when someone makes a goal. It's an enjoyable time to be a parent in Woodstock.

My Photos in Starbucks

Hey Woodstockians. My photography is up at Starbucks on the Square for the month of October. Very cool. I just put it up tonight and I like the way it looks. Six of my photos. Go check them out on the wall behind where you check out.
