Good morning, it is Tuesday.
I almost can't believe it is Tuesday, this weekend has flown by. I'm actually having a hard time remembering back to Saturday which I guess is just fine because I am mainly going to be talking about Sunday and Monday. Here we go!
Sunday morning Hansen left for Camp Lutherhaven with the middle school youth group from our church. It was a juggling act as that day Preston had two soccer games, Lillie was hanging with John and Carol, and Maren and I were off to a Tacoma Rainiers baseball games.
Maren and I got to join friends (ex-co-workers of Maren) to an outing at the Tacoma Rainiers game. The weather was very sketchy at first, raining while we were in line, but while the sun never shined, the rain stopped and we go to see a very good game that resulted in Tacoma loosing in extra innings.
Preston's soccer team made it into the semis and the finals so I got to see two great game yesterday. The first game Preston scored 2 goals and had a great assist for the 3rd goal of the game for a 3-0 win and a spot in the finals. The finals put them against the best Crossfire team in their age group for an amazing dual. This game ended in the last 10 seconds with the Crossfire team getting a goal after the ball bounced back into play from the crossbar and it was crazy. Bummer way to loose, but a great tournament. One of Preston's teammates will be leaving the team for the Seattle Sounder's Academy Team...very cool.
And not to make this a soccer blog, but I have to attach this grainy video of Preston scoring on the opening kickoff of game 3. His coach had never seen anyone score on the opening kickoff. The keeper for the other team stayed on the ready for the rest of the game to be sure.
See you tomorrow.
