Sorry more images of the Grand Kids today. We were able to attend Josh’s soccer practice and game yesterday. It is like anything else in life. You learn from your experience.
Next time I won’t take the 600 mm lens, it was way too big for the game. I think the 70 – 200 mm lens would be perfect for this type of activity. You sit right on the out-of-bounds line so there is no need for a long lens.
Take an umbrella. The sun was hot and brutal. The kids were all drenched from the heat and we were too. I did a 32 mile bike ride yesterday and finished up in time to take a shower and get to the game on time. What a waste (taking a shower), had to take another one when I got home. 🙂
Now about the soccer game. I remember the first time I went to one of Mark’s T-ball games. I had missed the first one and so when I got there I saw 20 kids in the infield and a few in the out field. I told Jeanne, no one will be able to get on base. She said, just watch. It was great fun to watch.
At the soccer game they play three on the field. There was one standout on Josh’s team and he scored 9 of the 10 goals.
This was Josh’s favorite thing to do, run to the goal and defend it. Not a bad idea when you think about it. It was great fun watching the little guy play and the social interaction they all had.
Even Gabby got in on the action. She had fun running up and down the side of the field. During one of the breaks she decided to show her skills. She actually did a pretty good job of kicking the ball.
Angie and Ben bring a little pop up tent to the game to keep the kids cool and out of the sun. But Gabby could only stay in there so long and then she had to burn off some energy. 🙂
Can’t leave Austin out. This was his position during the entire game. He slept though the game and the Grandview Gallop. I can’t wait to watch him grow as well.
So it was a fun weekend watching the kids do their thing. I hope to get in another bike ride today but right now the weather looks uncooperative.
It’s been seven months since my cataract surgery and I’m still having the same issues with my eye that I had the day after the surgery. I have a 3:30 p.m. appointment with my surgeon. Hope I can get some answers and some alternatives to the situation I have now.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Tomorrow something other than Grand Kids. 🙂
Enjoy your day and be careful.
