Soccer Saturday

Three soccer games and a birthday party have ruled our Saturday today.

Oldest daughter K has her first soccer tournament this weekend, including one game last night, two games today and another game at 8:00 tomorrow morning.

On top of that, boy J had a soccer game this afternoon at the same time as K's second game of the day.

I ended up going to K's game while my wife went to J's game. By all accounts, J did well in his game and I'm happy to say that K scored a goal in her game to help her team win 3-2...their first win of the tournament.

This is especially cool because K's team is the lowest ranked team in this tournament and they weren't expected to win any.

The score was tied 1-1 when K got the ball around midfield and dribbled all the way down and shot it right past the goalie as soon as she entered the goalie box...it was awesome.

Our whole sideline cheered and I felt really great for her.

Now, I don't expect such miracles at the 8 a.m. game tomorrow. The team we beat played our opponent for tomorrow earlier in the day today and lost 13-0. Yeah...they're pretty good.

I'll be thrilled if we can just score one goal and avoid a shutout.

And tonight was the family birthday party for little M.

A very busy, but very fun day for everybody.

Hope all of you are having a great weekend as well!

Until Next Time...
