Bear with me while I brag a teeny weeny bit. Here we are with our daughter, whom I absolutely adore. I told her everything I could have prayed for in a daughter...she is. And she loves me! So we hugged and kissed alot. I had not seen her since we dropped her off to college.
So we came to see her play soccer for college. We have watched her play since she was 6, watched her mature, cry, get hurt, go to endless practices, come home exhausted only to do homework...and it was all heading for this time of her life when she would hopefully play for college! And all of our dreams came true. We raised our kids to be Christians...but more than that a 'sharp' Christian. That you should represent God in an incredible way...good was not enough. Be the best, be sharp, be excellent and never ever back away from serving God. It was like a pep talk for soccer except it was a pep talk for life and serving God.
Above she is with some of her teammates on the girl's soccer team. They love their moms too!
Here is the "You've got to be kidding" part. We go to her game....beyond excited....I get out my camera to take a picture. The ball comes to her, I quickly click so I don't miss the shot....and....
OH MY GOSH! I couldn't believe this. She was crying (she never cries) and had to be carried off the field! She was out for the rest of the game! My husband about had a hissy fit. Talk about a farmer whose crop froze and all is lost! hahahahha....he was about as disappointed as can be!
But all was not lost...we had our kids over to our oldest son's apartment and cooked a roast and potatoes dinner with all the fixin's, gravy, biscuits. It was wonderful!
Below from left to right is our daughter in law's brother, then Whitney our daughter, our middle son Cardiff (Cardiff by the Sea, Wales...) Stephanie our daughter in law, and Blake our oldest.
Thanks so much for letting me brag about my sweet kids. I'm headin' home now...boohoo!
