|Thomas has spent many weekends on the sidelines reffing soccer games|
one being his brother's :)
|Frederick running after the ball on his U12 UC team. . .he's quite the leader on that team!|
And then lunch afterwards. . .along with a text letting us know how Marie was doing at her tournament. .
|Big E's with my boys and Thomas's friend one Saturday|
|How Tom and I communicate many weekends when he is out of town with soccer and I stay home with soccer|
|Soccer training on Saturday afternoon -- Thomas is in the yellow shirt|
Off to Soccer Training. . .
|Same soccer training with his friend we went to lunch with|
(in the meantime I had to drop Margaret off with a fellow Power Team Mom so she could go to Nashville to compete in her final competition of the season. . .)
And then U14 select practice for Thomas. . .
|Last U14 practice before Rotary Tournament (with their new coach)|
|Relaxing at the hotel|
|Our family the next morning as we were leaving the hotel to go in two different directions|
This competition was in Nashville at the convention center
The team's pyramid and then reviewing the routine immediately after they get off stage.
|The "price" for ice cream was a picture :)|
|The water table (??)|
We ran into a fellow Cheer family at the river and walked around a bit with them. They have four children too, but a bit more spaced out. I think their oldest is 20-something and this is their youngest -- Margaret just went to her 7th birthday party a few weeks ago.
I didn't really get any "good" pictures of us, but lots of downtown from a different point of view:
We went back to the convention center after this ride for awards and then home.
And no pictures of Marie. . .well, I'm sure there were some moms at her soccer weekend snapping away and I could probably pull some off FB but this post has already taken me over two weeks, an hour-here-and-hour-there, to complete. No kidding. Blogger doesn't like the amount of pictures I upload I guess.
Glad to have these memories. . .glad to have these times together, one-on-one with the kiddos too. Although we are a family that likes to stay together, the times apart make us appreciate the times together even more :) Tom's goal next year is to make more of Margaret's competitions -- my goal is to see more of Marie's soccer. Such is the season of life right now. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
