Alex had another great soccer game Saturday. He had his second goal in two games, a left-footed blast, one-timer, off the near post. I'm really proud of how he's stepped up his focus and effort in both the pool-training and one-on-one with me. His dedication has really started to pay dividends in the matches. I also love that he still wears his Star Wars watch during the games.
Kelly kicked off her soccer season with a tournament hosted by the North Meck Soccer Club this weekend. After two years of having to play outside fullback, her new coach played her as center forward - and she rose to the occasion in spectacular form, netting four goals and leading her U12 team to their first championship. They won the Finals 1-0 in blistering heat. She is one happy girl and I'm very proud of her.

Enjoy simple pleasures. Push the envelope. Love what you do. Take nothing for granted.
Never let go of hope. One day you will see that it all has finally come together. What you have always wished for has finally come to be. You will look back and laugh at what has passed and you will ask yourself, 'How did I get through all of that?'
