We have been a soccer family for years – Kyle started playing at 5 years old, then Tyler and then Ryan – for a few soccer3years all three played on three different teams and Greg was coaching either one or two of their teams.  Eventually Tyler and Kyle moved on to other interests.  Greg coached up until this last year and now only Ryan is still playing.  This last week and nextsoccer1 week are heavy soccer weeks – with lots of rain this season we have missed many games and as we approach the end of the season they are trying to get all of them played.  Last weekend Ryan played in 3 games.  They had a game tonight and the boys played a great game and won 4-0 against ones of the teams they lost to last weekend.  There is another game on Sunday, and then one Tuesday night and Wednesday night too.  With all this soccer it reminded me of a 6×6 scrapbook I made for Ryan a few seasons ago.  I intend to scrapbook some more of his soccer pictures and also want to make some 12×12 pages too.  I’m not sure I ever shared the book with anyone so I thought I would show you a few pages from it tonight.

Have a great weekend!  Tomorrow is a tennis match day.  I need to make some scrapbook pages with the Just Tennis stamp set too.  Maybe one day I’ll catch up on all the scrapbooking I want to do – but probably not.

Quick note on the birds – I finally saw the chickadee babies today – both mom and dad were out of the house and I got a quick peek at a pile of babies.  The robin babies are getting bigger – they seem to know when food is on the way and stick up their heads and open their beaks until mom or dad comes by to drop in some food.  Today I got to watch while they were fed a worm!  The bluebirds are growing too – I can hear them now from the porch – so I know when mom or dad is there feeding them – they make quite a bit of noise when food is coming.  I’m going to check my dates tomorrow because as the date approaches for them to fledge I don’t want to open the box anymore so they don’t come out early.  Hopefully I’ll be able to see the day that they leave and get some pictures of them as the babies learn to fly.
