Well Saturday's game started out fairly well. The edges of the field were a bit wet from the previous night's rain But the sun was shining ~ so much so that I went and got my umbrella to shield myself. Here was Julianne's solution to the blazing sun
I completely underestimated the other team. They looked kinda whimpy and while we did score the first goal they would have totally kicked out butts if it wasn't for the fact that we have an exceptional goalie.
Next thing we knew the sky started to get a bit dark and then came the last half of the game... and the skies opened up for real The last half of the game was played in the pouring rain. Richard and Julianne went and sat in the car where they could still see the game. Me, I stayed in my chair under the umbrella and stayed fairly dry.
We did end up winning 3 to 2 and I'm telling you the boys had more fun playing in the rain than any other time I've seen. There was much falling and slipping and diving thru mud and it stayed pouring right up through the end of the game. Here are a few more "wet & dirty" pictures. and the end of the game where the boys greet each other with a high five and "good game"
On a more important note ~ my favorite comfy shoes took a beating as well. Here they are after walking across the "dry" field and then after crossing the "wet" field But all's well that ends well and they came thru the washer very well and are as good as new.
Here's Richard bringing the cooler back to the car ~ It was our day to bring snack ~ of course!
And then this little guy was having the time of his life after the game.
And finally ~ two last pictures. This is the Catholic school where we played. I thought these two structures were pretty interesting.
