Soccer recap and more!

Ahhh...I love having all these fun pictures of Emma to scrap with!  These photos were from the first day they got here straight from the airport.  It was already getting late, but it was warm outside.  She took one look at that pool and jumped right in!  It was so fun to see her smile and laugh - so great to just be able to watch her have a good time! 

These papers are from the fabulous October Afternoon line, SIDEWALKS.  I knew when I saw those adorable duck stickers what my title would be!  If you are local to the Seattle area, you can find this line at THE URBAN SCRAPBOOKER in Edmonds!  Brooke has some fun products in the store!


Soccer Update:

Jordan and the Northwest University Women's Soccer Team are still going strong!  They finished up the regular season at home for Senior Day.  They are in the playoffs but having that last game at home was so emotional - for me.  LOL!  You all know that she has been playing soccer for 16 years and I just can't wrap my head around the end of this journey.  It is such a joy to watch her out there doing what she loves and doing it so well.  I know there will be so much more soccer in her life whether it's playing for fun or coaching -- and I can't wait!  Here are some photos of that last home game of the year:

and a couple of game shots:


They won that game against Southern Oregon 1-0 in dramatic fashion as always! So that put them in the first round of playoffs which were last Saturday.  Of course they were in Ashland, Oregon - 8 hours away from home.  But, we couldn't bring ourselves to miss the game, so we packed up the car and headed out at 5am!  Game time was bitter cold, and playing away on their home field was definitely a disadvantage.  Check out the bench -- yeah, just a tiny bit cold!



The game was amazing and the girls came out and scored 2 goals in the first 15 minutes to help take the nervous energy away from the fans in the stands!  We had quite a crowd too - thankful for the cross country team that weather the chill to support the girls!





The girls held on to win the game 2-1 and advance to the next level of the playoffs - the championship game on Saturday against the 8th rated team in the US at this level - Concordia.  It's going to be a great game and means another road trip.  When every game could be her last, I just have to be there no matter what.  Here is the team after their win:


So much other fun stuff happening around here right now too... baseball has just started up, school is going great, couponing is still tons of fun, and the holidays are right around the corner.  Definitely  not ready for that! 

Happy Monday everyone!

Great pictures! My oldest also plays travel soccer and for her high school so we know all about traveling all over to attend games. My daughter still has 2 more years in hs, and hopes to play in college as well. Thanks for sharing!
