I LOVE the fall. I love the beautiful, sunny days. Monday I took a break from the hospital (Jo has been in for 3 weeks now recovering from surgery and some complications) and attended some of my children's games. Kayla's game happened to be on the way back to the hospital so that was convenient. They played Franklin and ended up beating them 4-2. It wasn't their best game but they won none-the-less. This current win puts their record at 7-1 which is HUGE considering 3 years ago they only won one game.
Kayla is number 23 and has been the starting sweeper for the team for her 3 years of playing.
Of course I had my (very busy) sidekick with me. I wish I had snapped a picture of him on our way out because his bright sunny self ended up finding some dirt and he was COVERED from head to toe. Good times.
I wish I had more photos of the game but it was hard trying to snap pictures with a baby on the run.
So to try and resolve the 'running' baby, I threw him up on my shoulders. I was laughing so hard because as soon as I did, he kept leaning over my left side to try and see my face...like he couldn't believe that he was higher than me or something.
And then after making eye contact with me, he would slobber my cheek. I'd like to think he was smooching me. :) I love this kid!
Even though this picture is a little blurry I was happy to have caught such a great play. Kayla made an intense defensive move by stopping an almost wide open shot at the goal.
Being able to watch my kid's games in between Jo's hospital stay has been good therapy. As hard as it is to be away from Jo, I do look forward to supporting them at their events.
