A contrast in phones...and some soccer.

Good morning, it is Monday.

Over the last couple of days I have spent over 10 hours driving.  Yup, Preston had a travel weekend with soccer.  Saturday was a game here, then we cruised over to Moses Lake to spend the night.  Saturday morning it was all the way to Spokane for a 2:00pm game.  Then home.  Luckily the pass didn't have snow on roads and the drive was relativity uneventful.  Maren and the littles stayed home but were plenty busy themselves.
 The soccer was relatively uneventful as well.  Both games ended in ties.  I did think Preston played very well both games, kind of getting back to taking players on and creating plays.  Here his is sending a ball toward the goal hoping a teammate may put a head on it for a goal.
 We (some of us adults) checked out the winery above the soccer fields in Spokane.  We could even see the soccer fields from up here...well, if ventured out into the "hazardous area".
 Preston and Brian in the car for the drive.  Brian's phone says 36 days till Christmas!  This was the last picture of his phone in good repair.  Just 5 minutes later while walking to the soccer field Brian's phone took an unfortunate tumble onto the ground and now the screen is shattered.  Ouch.
 From new cell phones to old phones.  Check out this super old dial phone all looking like some brass elephant.  We stayed overnight in Moses Lake at teammate's extended family's house.  We had a very nice time with great food and fun.
The boys even got some studying in while in Moses Lake.  At least it sure looks like they are studying.

We now have a short week with Thanksgiving just around the corner.

See you tomorrow.

Glad you had a safe trip. Cute picture of Preston! And that is one over-the-top phone!
