Charming? Me?

Good morning, it is Sunday.

Preston's soccer season with his Rapids team is winding down.  They are one point out of first place, but even with a couple of games to go, they may be stuck there.  The team in third is done with all their games, and the team in first is playing teams they should beat.  It has been a good season for sure.  Of course there will be State Cups and such, he will be playing through February...about when high school soccer starts.

Today's game will be in the cold, but not in the rain.  Last week was both.
At halftime, getting some tips from the coach.  This picture is taken from close range, under my umbrella.  It looks blurry, only because of all the rain.  But even in cold and rainy conditions, the boy's cleats are bright and shiny.  I'd say the boys teams generally wear more decorative shoes than the girl's team do.  The girl's teams (in many cases) try to have all the players match, while the boys don't like to wear the same shoes as another player on the team.
We drove one of Preston's teammates to the last game, and on the way home we stopped for dinner at one of my favorite restaurants in the world, Panda Express.  We tried to get the right fortune cookies before opening them, shuffling them around just a bit.  Preston went first, Happiness is around the next corner, wealth down the street.  This one's great IMO, the boys joke that it is backwards.  Then Christian, You are never selfish with your advice or your help...another super fortune, the boys joke about giving poor advice:)  Then mine, an admirer finds you charming.  And they both want to trade me fortunes.  Ha!  I guess charming is good.

See you tomorrow.
