End of soccer/begining of track.

Good morning, it is Saturday.

Today is Preston's last soccer game of the season. As you know, he plays on a select team and the season is pretty much year round, but this is the last day for this team and for many kids. In a few weeks there will be try-outs for next year's team, and due to this teams successes as well as a few other team's closings, there will be a ton of kids at try-outs. Next year's team will look different and a few of Preston's favorite teammates may not make the team. Today could be a tough day for the kids, they're playing a tougher/older team, and they are playing for the last time as this team. Preston is thinking of trying out for a couple of other teams as well, but we anticipate he will choose to stick with this team.

So what will Preston do with his time away from soccer you ask? Track for his jr. high starts on Monday! We bought him his first ever pair of real track shoes the other day. If this pair of shoes looks like it is as big as the box, it is because it is! Preston is wearing 11.5 for both his running and track shoes!

See you tomorrow.

Congrats to Preston on the nifty track shoes! Grandpa Slane's shoes are size 10 1/2 - wow!
