Well, on Saturday my twins turned 10! Hard to believe. They are growing up to be wonderful little people. It also marks the end of the fall sports season. We’ve got a few weeks of respite before heading back to swimming and soccer. So…In honor of this big occasion, here are just a few pics from the weekend. The first few are from a cold & wintery kind of day while the second series are from a really beautiful fall like day. Quite the contrast.
Nat played goalie. Glad she liked it because it made us nervous!
Game 3 throw in
As much joy as you can possibly have at a 40 degree and cold soccer tournament
A perfect centering kick.
One final fall cheer for the Ninja Ducks.
So proud of these kids and both of our teams. These teams will stick together for winter training and summer league. With the progress made this fall season, both should be very, very good next year.
What a weekend we’ve had so far. We had our girl’s birthday party (she’s in blue in above picture), an out of town soccer tournament, a birthday party with aunt Jackie and another soccer game today. One final boy birthday party tonight and our weekend is complete.
Hope you have all had a great one too!
No bike content today. Just a proud dad, a series of images and an encouragement. Despite missing the framing in the first shot, I think this is a fun series that many folks can relate too. I love kids and their honesty of expression.
Yes…Breakaway…Shot on goal!
Oh that is close….Maybe it’ll go in?!
Yeah, I bet all of us have had something in our lives just like that. A great opportunity. A valid effort. A missed opportunity. Well….Stay the course because one just might go in!
He shoots. He scores. Finally!
Last evening was the last game of the spring season. Both my kids were in soccer. I am so proud of both of them. It was so fun seeing them, and their teams, progress this year. It is amazing how much faster each year gets. I did not have time to go through all the pictures. I just grabbed one of them for today’s post. That’s my boy playing midfield and moving the ball up the field. This post isn’t about the image or the words. It’s about being a proud dad. I’m so thankful that I get to go see these events and support my awesome kids.
