Soccer mom again

I first became a soccer mom 20 years ago. It was fun. Non-competitive, kis having fun being kids. There was always the kid who didn't remember which net was theirs. We chatted at the side lines, took turns bringing snacks. I remember cutting up oranges.

Happily having hunted and landed a new home, we went with our daughter to her soccer game once again. Caitlin has always played soccer for fun, even when in Waterloo University far from home.


It was fun driving around farm country, avoiding bikes, watching domestic animals.







What fun as we were in charge of new-born Isabelle, while Caitlin ran her buns off. She is wondering why I'm taking a picture this way????

How fun! Good for your daughter -- you must have been a really great mom (soccer and otherwise)!

Did I just read that you FOUND a house? Did I miss something? Tell us more!

Your grand-daughter is just adorable! (Have I said that before ;>)

So you are moving into my part of the world! Closer to your kids, too! I am sure you will love that, as you are so happy dealing with the young ones! I wonder what the cats will make of the move...

OMG, W.C., hope not!!!

We did find a house, Sallie. And not a moment too soon.

judy, the cats will adore 6.6 acres, deer, birds, 'coons, and all that entails. Plus a tree frog in the mailbox.
