U.S.A. Soccer

Congratulations to the U.S. Women’s National Soccer team on their Gold medal victory in France. Such a fun soccer week for me. I’m a huge soccer fan. Besides FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019, CONCACAF Gold Cup is finishing up today.

The 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup is the 15th edition of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, the biennial international men’s football championship of the North, Central American, and Caribbean region organized by CONCACAF. The U.S.A. Men’s National Team is competing and they are in the finals against Mexico tonight. More soccer for me to watch.

Maybe in the future we will be able to see Addy play soccer.

Uncle Andrew was a good trainer.


Time for a water break.

We had an action packed few days enjoying time with Andrew, Katie, Dan, Jamie, Addy and Jaymison. Katie and Andrew are home on the Coast again safely and we are thankful for safe journeys.

Overheard these last few days:

Addy was a little confused when Katie called me momma. Addy looked at her and said, “that’s baba.”

When Katie was pushing Addy on the swing Addy said, “sing Katie.” Katie started singing and Addy then said, “louder!”

Okay is Otay right now. Gramps is Damps.

Hope you all had a good weekend.

A Golden Moment!

Congratulations to the U.S. Women’s Soccer team and their gold medal in the 2012 Olympics! It was a beautiful thing for me a huge soccer fan to watch. Congratulations, too, to the Canadian Women beating France to earn the bronze medal and to Japan for receiving the silver medal. It’s great to watch the medal ceremony and see the women all lined up with those huge smiles!

Here are some more beautiful things from my yard…

Before I watched the game I mowed the lawn, picked some apples and enjoyed some of the flowers growing in planters about the yard.

I’m trying to get motivated to peel and core these apples off the tree and make some applesauce…

My top hat blueberries are getting big and ripe.  This is a dwarf blueberry that grows well in pots.

My mom is being moved to a rehab center this afternoon. They are calling around to find one that has room. I’m hoping it isn’t too far from my parents apartment since my dad will be driving back and forth. Thank you so much for all your prayers and concern for my mom. It is really appreciated.
