Did you ever experience what I did Saturday morning?  You stay up a little too late Friday night, but you are ok with it because you can sleep in on Saturday.  Well, if you are me that doesn't happen.  My girls are like me and wake up at the same time every day without an alarm clock.  So, at about 6:45 a.m. they are awake no matter what day it is.  So after staying up past 2 a.m., I was not surprised to be woked up at 6:30 a.m. by the girls wanted to know what I was making them for breakfast.  Saturday morning is my day to make special breakfasts for them.  My wife works overnights at a hospital so she gets home around then, I make breakfast, and we eat together before she heads to bed.  We sneak in family time when we can, lol.  So, there was no sleeping in for me.  My girls are 9 and almost 5, they are very self-sufficient for breakfast.  Maybe if I leave them a note that I want to sleep in they might just make it themselves, hmmmmmm.  Will have to try that.

Soccer was interesting.  My little one ran around and had lots of fun.  I was very proud of her when she was sitting on the sideline.  All the other kids were playing with the cones and putting them on their heads.  Not my little one, she not only watched the game and cheered her team, but she kept fixing the cones when the other kids threw them on the ground.  My oldest did well, she played defense most of the game.  I was really proud of both of them.  I asked my youngest if she had won (they don't keep score for that age) and she said she didn't know.  I told her, "As long as you try your hardest and have fun you are a winner."  She smiled and ran over to my wife, gave her a high five, and said "Mommy, I am a winner!"  It was really cute.

Ok, I wanted to record my iniitial podcast this weekend, but i ran out of time.  I am trying to plan something really solid, and am hoping to get it recorded over the next two day.  Everytime I come up with show notes, I rewrite them.  I need to stop being so anal.  Oh, and there will be a surprise segment for my first cast.  Thanks Skaggy!!!

Today started as a fun day.  It was very cool outside last night and we had the windows opend due to a beautiful day yesterday.  This morning I was awoken by both of my girls, "Daddy, we are cold.  Can we cuddle with you?"  I grumbled something I can't even remember and they crawled under the blankets with me.  My wife was up early for work so they like to sneak in and cuddle with Daddy on those mornings.  Next thing I know I am 15 minutes late getting up and we were in instantly into "Hurry Mode" as my youngest calls it.  We got out the door in time.  On our way to my Mother-In-Law's, who is their daycare, my oldest said, "Daddy, you are the best.  I bet not all kids get to have cuddle time with their Daddy.  I love you Daddy!"  I was so happy, and it was well worth the loss of some sleep to know my kids look at me with such high praise.

Tonight is my oldest's first soccer practice.  I admit, I am not a soccer fan, but I will be there screaming my head off in praise and support for her and her team.  The fun part will be that my youngest is playing too.  Which means no rhyme or reason, just a bunch of 4 year olds chasing a ball around the field.  Lol

And now to address the "Humble" in the title.  Now, I have spoken about Skaggy the Poet in a previous post.  He just posted his 100th Blog Post, Congratulations Skaggy!  The humble part is that he wrote a poem about me.  Please follow Skaggy's Blog.  He is a great family man with many insightful and witty things to say about the world.  http://skaggythepoet.wordpress.com/2011/08/23/a-big-thank-you/

On a side note; the wheels of progress are turning.  I have been working on getting my information together about podcasting, web-hosting and such.  If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate the help.  I am hoping to get the first podcast recorded in September.  

Thanks.
