soccer weekend

Both of my boys played in a large soccer tournament in Richmond, Virginia, this past weekend. The weather was fantastic, sunny, breezy, and hovering around 75 degrees. My main responsibility was water fetching, food providing, grimy gear washing, and lots of cheering. I must admit that I love the game of soccer. It is the a national sport in my native Sweden (after ice hockey) and now I enjoy watching all levels of soccer here in the US. My sons are both quite good and they did well in the tournament. My oldest (number 5) is in the midst of the action in the photo above.  None of them won the big prize, but they were both content and happy. And so was I.
