Soccer


The offspring are fortunate to have inherited their father's long legs and athletic abilities.
This afternoon, my firstborn is boarding a bus up to Swan River with her soccer team to play in the provincials. They've been ranked #1 in the province.
Though I badly want to bump along on that entire seven hour drive (sincerely), listening to teen-aged banter and taking in some different scenery... alas, I must remain here and make more money so she can keep taking more trips. But how I wish I was getting on that bus at 2:00 pm today!
It's a glorious, grateful feeling to be proud of my kids.
So, get out there kids, and (don't) break a leg...

WHOOT WHOOT!!! Congratulations to the talented young lady and her team.
Yes, I would LOVE to bump along on that 7 hour drive. I would love to watch some fine soccer.

I had a great glorious, grateful weekend being proud of my kid. I also got a good dose of teenage banter. I asked her to invite a few of her friends for Turkey and she invited 15! Only 8 of them came, but LOTS of banter.

My father wrenched his aching bones off the couch 3 times to introduce himself to the kids, and they politely made the rounds of introductions, each time. He got to meet 24 new people!
