Soccer in the mud....

We interrupt this blog to bring you something new.

Lest you think we only have graduation events happening right now, I thought I’d do a quick post about soccer.

Soccer has been in our lives for a very long time. Both big kids played for years, although Alex much longer than Katie. Anna Grace had a short stint in playing when she was three, but guess what? She didn’t listen to the coach so her soccer career was pretty short lived.

But I digress.

This weekend, Alex had a tournament. I haven’t been to a game in a while. Dave is a coach so he’s always there (unless he’s in countries across the sea). And taking the girls can be….well, a challenge.

But I was determined to go to a game today. So we headed out after Baccalaureate for the final game of the season. Mind you now, it’s been raining for a while so the fields are complete mud. What a mess.

The boys ended up second overall. Very good showing!

And what did the little girls do while Alex played?

Play with sticks, play in the water, and torment unsuspecting bugs.

Ah, bliss.

Isn't it fun when sticks and bug can keep the kids busy for a while!

Glad they found something interesting to do...I remember how boring my brother's soccer games were as a kid!
