Then it was back to home to get ready for the National Championship game! Now, seeing as how we know how this game turned out, I contemplated not even mentioning it in the blog, but I did want to someday look back and remember that we at least made it to the Championship game in an undefeated season! That morning we were full of excitement and hope though so Daddy played the Fight Song to wake everyone up and made bagels with green cream cheese! Even if the game didn't go well, we had fun celebrating anyway!
The place they take soccer is so big that there are two giant fields in separate, but attached, buildings. Unfortunately, Ben and Juliette are in one building and Abbey is in another. Luckily, Ben is very responsible when it comes to his baby sister. He carefully gets her after class, holds her hand, and they walk over to the other building where I am trying my best to hurry Abbey along to get to them too (not an easy task mind you!). So far it has worked out fine though.
And speaking of those two, Ben had the opportunity to read to Juliette's preschool class as a guest reader. It was very cute. They were both so excited about it.
