Good morning, it is Thursday.
Tuesday evening I took Preston and Connor to the Seattle Sounder's U.S. Open Cup semi-final match against the Houston Dynamo. We had great seats, in fact we were able to grab seats in the very front row. The game was very exciting. We had never been to a professional soccer game, and did we ever choose a good one. Sounders tied the game in the 89th minute, then took the lead and won in overtime. I really did not expect so much speed and violence from a soccer game, but it was there. Other than the first time I ever saw Motocross racing in the King Dome, this may have been my most favorite professional sporting event I have ever attended! Here is a picture of Preston and Connor at the game...Preston has shadow from the flag the crazy fans behind us were waving across his nose.
We got home from the soccer match very late, and then had to wake up very early for Preston's appointment with braces. Poor kid will be dealing with a sore mouth today. They figure he will have his braces for somewhere between 24 and 30 months, which is good as we will be paying for them for 24 months. Many of his friends already wear braces, so he knows all about them.
