My son also had a banner weekend with his soccer team winning the Whitewater Challenge Cup. Here is the team and the coach with their hard earned cup. They are now 13-0-0 and have only had 3 goals scored on them all season. Teams came from as far away as Canada so the competition was pretty stiff! Way to go boys!
And one of just my guy!
The weekend did not end there. On to a day of team bonding and whitewater rafting. It was my kids first experience whitewater rafting and they had a ball! Thanks goodness for wetsuits since the water was 55 degrees.
I want to let you know about a a fun scrapping challenge going on that is also for a great cause. Check out Jen Tapler's blog for information on the Stampin' out Alzheimer's Event she is hosting. This is a cause near and dear to my heart since my Dad suffered from Alzheimer's for several years before passing away.
Here is my dad in my favorite photo of him looking so handsome. It was taken sometime around WWII. Also a special Memorial Day THANK YOU to all the military and their family members who serve and sacrifice so much to keep our country free! You are true heroes!
