Soccer and More...



This past Saturday was Dale and Gracie's first soccer game in Helena. How is soccer different from Corpus you ask? The WEATHER...it was so cold! Alan is the coach and he went to the game early and he called me and told me to bring warm clothes as it was really cold. I said okay, but really how cold could it be? Okay, I get there in my not so warm jacket and BRRRRR.... Luckily for me, I have the nicest neighbor and she seemed to know that I wouldn't be prepared (didn't take her long to get to know me) so she had hats, gloves and scarfs and my whole family was wearing her stuff. One of these days I promise to stop talking about our weather, but yes I am completely obsessed with it. I can't get over the difference. The kids aren't sure if they like playing in the cold (which apparently we haven't seen anything yet) but I know how much they hated the heat too so what do you do.

Later that afternoon we went to the football game at Carroll College and it was beautiful and warm by then. The game was a lot of fun. It took me back to my own college days (which was as Dale and Gracie say "centuries" ago).

I bet the cold is going to take a little getting used to. Especially after living down here in the hottest place on earth! j.k.

That's great that your kids keeping going with the soccer.

That must be quite a change to hae to wear gloves & hats. Hopefully, they won't mind so much.

I'm so jealous of our cold weather!! I am totally missing the fall days. How long does the season go for? Will you be playing in snow by the end??
