Today we mini-celebrated Andrew’s 16th birthday. He was supposed to have a cross country meet out of town, so we didn’t plan anything. The meet was cancelled because of the weather and his team arranged a duel meet with another local team. Andrew ran a great race and we picked up a mini chocolate cake for afterward.
Mari’s soccer team went on a field trip to a pumpkin patch on their weekend off. They are a great group of girls!
This afternoon was the Valley cross country meet. All 3 kids were able to run in the same meet – and Cameron Reagen, too.
Lucia started playing soccer this year and I get to coach. Andrew is continuing his reffing career, now in his 4th year.
Soccer season is in full swing. It runs pretty much all of April and May. The older kids are having fun seasons. The little girls like to play, too, though they won’t be on formal teams for a few years still.
This week marks the beginning of the Fall soccer season. Elliot & Mari are playing U12 and Andrew is playing U14. We switched clubs this year, looking for a more consistent experience, better fields, and a soccer complex, so that our kids are not playing and practicing at 2 different locations.
So far, so good.
