Good morning, it is Monday.
What a weekend we had! I seem to start plenty of Monday blog posts this way, but this time it was true. From church meetings to overnights to soccer to Seattle Seahawks. Wow.
Yesterday I was on the road most all the day. Preston's team had a State Cup match in Bellingham at 3:00pm, so we had to hit the road at 11:30am. Of course the Seahawks game against the Falcons started at 10:00am. When I left with Preston the team was down 20-0 and things were grim. Costco was empty as we filled up with gas. Is Costco ever empty on a Sunday at 11:30? No. By the time we had picked up the other two riders and were north of Seattle the Seahawks were back in the game. As we were nearing Marysville we took the lead with just 30 seconds to go. The boys in the van were rockin! It was very fun listening to the radio, giving thumbs up to all the other cars around and such. 30 seconds later we had lost the game. Dang! Great season Seattle Seahawks!
Preston's soccer team didn't disappoint. They won their game 2-0 with a couple of amazing goals by Preston. Preston also scored 6 amazing goals in his indoor game Saturday evening. This may be the most impressive weekend of soccer I have ever seen Preston play. The two teams (indoor and outdoor) they played were very good teams, it wasn't like Preston was playing against a lessor talent...he was just on point.
By the time we got home from our drive yesterday the Golden Globes were just about over. Maren loves to watch these award shows with her ipad on her lap. Yup, it is clear that following the world of twitter as these shows unfold is a ton of fun for Maren and many many folks around the world.
Lillie got to have an overnight and Hansen played plenty of x-box. Good times for all.
See you tomorrow.
