Mikaela had a good weekend of soccer in a local tournament. After giving up two quick goals in the first five minutes of the first game on Saturday, her team then proceeded to shut out their opponents for the remaining 175 minutes of the tournament, finishing 1-1-1. Team defense was spectacular in the second game, and the goalie figured it all out in the last game. She'd been struggling all season, but put it all together in the final game of the season with a grand individual effort.
Sunday - Faddah's Day itself - was bittersweet not only for the reason above, it was the day we dropped Spencer off at a 2-week summer camp. This is the first time he will be out of touch for any length of time. I'm not sure when he grew up, because I sure didn't get any older. The camp looks amazing and fun, and I'm sure he's going to have a great time. No phones, no iPods, no computers, no anything that plugs in. Talk about disconnection for a 13-year old!
