Wow, we had some crazy wind yesterday! Of course the kids would both have soccer games and one would have pictures to take. A friend and her new baby came with us (new baby slept through just about everything) and we put our chairs close so we could share a blanket. The kids ended up playing with sweaters under their jerseys and some of the little ones were so cold they didn’t even want to run after the ball!
Jake – a game a couple of weeks ago
I do love watching them play. I love being able to see kids change – to see when something clicks for them or see when they get just that much better. Since the first practice until yesterday’s game, the improvement in all the players is huge! It’s amazing to watch. This is the first time either of the kids have played an organized sport and they are having so much fun. Alice plays goalie a lot and she’s really good at blocking the other team. A couple of the parents commented on how tough she was because she fell down during one game but still kept the ball out of the goal.
The wind actually made me tired. I watched part of a movie and wanted to cover up on the couch to finish it, but ended up taking a three hour-ish nap in the afternoon instead! The kids slept too, giving up on their addiction to pbskids.org and watching shows online. The nap was good, I figured it was okay since I woke up at 5:30AM due to forgetting to turn an alarm off!
I watched The Lucky Ones which was a good story. I like the actors, Tim Robbins, Michael Pena and Rachel McAdams, and the story wasn’t overblown or crazy, it just was. I’m sure we know people just like the characters – wandering, trying to find their way, figuring out what to do now that they are back. We have several friends who are no longer in the military who took a bit to figure out their place.
How was your weekend?
