Yesterday we travelled to the other side of the state (now an hour closer since our move) to see Charlie's soccer game. He's the goalie and apparently a good one. I know nothing about sports and usually ask dumb girl questions that leave open mouthed looks on the faces of the guys I ask. Yesterday as Charlie's skills were being praised by some guy in the parking lot I had to ask if he's really that good or is the game so slow (9 and 10 year olds) that it's easy to stop the ball. He went on and on about what Charlie can do that other kids can't. Big smiles on my son and DIL's faces. So, it's not grandma brags to say he's good. Can't believe this guy is going to be 10 next week. Sigh.
We have a new member of our family....rather, their family. This is Reeses. She's a pound rescue, 7 years old, comes from a family with kids. She's very pretty, lets the kids at the soccer field wrap their arms around her sometimes 3 and 4 at a time, she's calm and sweet tempered. She reminds our son of the dog we had for 16 years and still miss.
