This Weekend (12/27)

Not a ton going on this weekend.  The boys are staying with their grandparents over the weekend so Mike and I will be doing a lot of laundry.  Adulthood is so exciting.

Brendan does have two soccer games this weekend, though, so if you're free, we'll see you there!

Friday, December 27 - 8:00 p.m. vs. Lake White

Sunday, December 29 - 3:00 p.m. vs. Strikers

We've already played both of the Lake teams once.  We won one and lost one.  I'm not sure if this is the team that we beat earlier in the season or the team that squeaked out a narrow victory over us last week.  Either way, I'm sure the boys are hungry for a rematch.

This Weekend (12/20)

No soccer game on Friday, which is good, because both boys have a late-night lock-in for Scouts.  Brendan is a Den Chief for the Tiger Cubs, which is sort of like a junior assistant leader position, so he needs to go and help wrangle first graders.  He's certainly learning to appreciate just how difficult it is to herd the little ones!  Each den made a boat from cardboard and duct tape and they're going to race them in the indoor pool, which should be amazingly hilarious.  Nathan has been nominated to paddle his den's boat (with one other kid) because he weighs the least of all of the kids in his age group, lol!

There is, however, a game on Sunday:

Sunday, December 22 - 1:00 p.m. vs. Lake Blue

Come if you can.

In other news, Brendan was also recently elected Patrol Leader of his patrol in Scouts, which means that in addition to chasing itty bitties, he's also got to get kids his own age (and older) to listen to him.  He needs a certain number of months in leadership positions in order to earn his next rank, and between the two, he'll have plenty :)  They're planning a super cool campout in January where they'll get to paddle in an underground river and sleep in a cave.

They won!

For everyone not able to make it to yesterday afternoon's game against Stark Fusion, the boys ended up winning a hard-fought victory, 1-0!

Alex got the lone goal.  Brendan came so close to getting one himself, but the other team's keeper batted it away at the last second.  He played hard, and very well, and we're quite proud of him.

Time Clarifiation - Brendan's Christmas Concert

will be tomorrow (Tuesday), at 6:30 pm at the high school.  We'll try to be there on the early side to save some seats.  We'll probably need an entire row for everyone!

It should be (relatively) short and sweet.  The next show begins at 7:30, so I expect to be done no later than 7:15.  Get there late and you'll miss the whole darn thing :)
