It's all starting back up... soccer, school! The crazy is back. :-) Delaney had her first soccer tournament this past weekend in Indianapolis. It was a Round Robin tournament, so they got to play all the teams. This year Delaney is on a Three Lions U13 team. They are playing on a larger field, with a full sized ball, and have 11 people on the field. They played two games on Saturday, and one game on Sunday.
Their first game was with FC Pride; they lost 1-3 -- Delaney scored.
Their second game was with Fusion Orange; they won 2-0. Delaney got an assist on this game.
Their third game was with the Little Mavs; they lost 3-4. They were behind like 1-4; they did a great job not giving up and playing the game. They got to 3-4 with around 6 or so minutes left. We were all hoping for a last minute goal for a tie. :-) Delaney got a couple of goals in this game.
A good start to the season; giving them a taste of working on the larger field with all the changes. Now they know what to work on! :-)
Yesterday, Kenny took off of work to have a little bit of a family day together on the last day before school started! First we had a yummy lunch at Beggar's Pizza, taking advantage of their lunch buffet. Then we spent a little time at the Crown Point Family Fun Center playing miniature golf and letting the kids ride the go-karts. It was a lot hotter than I realized, standing out there in the sun playing miniature golf. (I'm not sure I would have agreed to this, had I realized!!!)
Afterwards we did a little last minute school shopping, then it was time to head home. After playing one game of Wii Party with the kids (the board game, Kyle won!)... it was time for bed! Early bedtimes again with school the next day, hard to believe!!!
Today, Delaney had her first day of 7th grade. It's hard to believe that this is her SECOND year in middle school!!!
And Kyle had his first day of 3rd grade!!! He was so excited to meet his brand new teacher today. :-)
It seemed like forever for summer to actually start, and now it seemed like it hardly took anytime to go by!
