Reasons for Celebration

Last Wednesday was game one of the soccer tournament for Andrew's team. They earned the first seed in the tournament. His team won Wednesday, Friday and headed to the championship game on Saturday morning. At the end of regulation, the game was tied 2-2. At the end of overtime, it was still 2-2, and they had a shoot out. Andrew moved to goalie and stopped every shot!! One of the girls on our team scored a goal, and we won 3-2.

Intense look during the throw-in.

Celebrating his goal on a throw in.  He intended to throw the ball in, have it hit another play and bounce into the goal.  He was successful!!

His 1st Place Medal.  Also notice the missing tooth.  I pulled it right before the game--in the parking lot.  It was just hanging there and I was afraid he was going to swallow it or choke.

Way to go Supersonics!!

Another cause for celebration was Abby's birthday. She's actually 8 today, but is away from home. We celebrated her birthday on Friday.

She is growing up so fast!
I love the intensity that Andrew has for everything he does!
Wish we could have been there for the birthday and the soccer!

Love Grandma

I do believe that Andrew needs to further develop his soccer talent! Looks like he is a natural ~ maybe a college scholarship in the future?
And sweet Abby. How in the world is she getting so old? When I close my eyes I can still see her as that darling two year old the wonderful summer I had the privilege of watching your kids.
