This weekend was our first official weekend of the Fall sports season. Unfortunately we started Saturday with temperatures in the high 90's. Ugh!
Joey kicked off the weekend with his soccer game.
I thought he did great! He had 1 goal and 1 assist.
The heat seemed to affect all the kids (not that I blame them, poor things!). Overall they looked a bit sluggish. Looking forward to seeing what they do next game.
Vincent's game was next, and even hotter. Talk about looking sluggish!
Vinnie did perk up in the second half of the game and showed some great potential.
Our Saturday ended with our mini-van dying (which we were able to jump start, thank goodness!) followed by our electricity going out. We must be on a bad grid, because we seem to lose our electricity whenever the temperature goes over 100. We threw in the towel and headed over to my mother-in-law's house to spend the night.
Sunday was Zachary's turn to hit the field. He had his first full (although considered "preseason") football game. We packed up the van (which started! Woo hoo!) and headed to Newark for the day.
Half way through the first quarter our starting quarterback took a bad hit and went down. An ambulance was called. Not exactly what I wanted to see during our first game! He was fine, but was taken in as a precaution.
We were thrilled to see that Zach had been moved from the third string team, to second string since last weeks scrimmage. Awesome!
You can't actually see Zach in these pictures, but he is in there!
This is one good looking football player!
