Family Sports

Jason had a soccer game this morning, the first since having his cast removed on Thursday. He played halfback today ~ the coach puts the kids at different positions each time they go in ~ and did really well, scoring one goal and assisting on another, and hustling between defense and offense. It was a perfect day for sitting at the soccer field ~ sunny but cool and breezy. Next week is the last game of the season.

This weekend was also a Homeschool Pre-season Basketball Tournament in Greensboro, and the Lighthouse Boys Varsity team competed. We had 2 games yesterday, at 4:15 and again at 9:30 ( which didn't actually start until 10 PM) . We left home with a carload of players at 1:30 PM for the hour and a half trip, and didn't return home until 1:30 AM! Mark and the boys returned to Greensboro today for a game at 2:00. We won both games yesterday, against Davidson Co., and Cabarrus Co., but lost today to a sharp and disciplined Upstate Carolina team from SC. I had to keep the scorebook since Amanda was at a church retreat this weekend, so no pictures!
