Jackson and Tucker had their first Upwards Soccer game Saturday morning. East Union sponsors Upward Soccer, I don't know a lot about the program, except that it is a Christian based sports program. The teams pray before the game, there is someone giving their testimony during the half time break and they have devotion time during the practice. I am so happy that our Church provides this outreach ministry for the kids in our community.
Jackson lead the game off with a goal in the first kickoff! I didn't get a picture of that because I wasn't expecting that much excitment at the first of the game. I kept my camera out for the rest of the game.
Ron and I have to miss the next two games because of a business trip and a family trip. The business trip has been planned for several months, and I really wanted to have this fishing trip with my sisters and our husbands. While I will really enjoy the traveling, I am already sad to be missing the boys games.
I have season passes to the Children's Theater for Jackson, Tucker, Veronika and myself. Due to our traveling, this was the only weekend I could take the kids to see "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer". Veronika wasn't here this weekend, so Andrea or Steve will have to take her later, but I wanted to be able to take Jackson and Tucker to see it. Paula left their Razorback game watch party to bring the boys to Little Rock, so we could make it to the play on time. The game wasn't even over, and it was a really exciting game end, so I especially appreciated that effort.
The play was entertaining. Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn were two some of my favorite books when I was young. The production was very interesting. They had the raft that Tom, Huck and their friend rode to the island when they ran away from home and they had a rope swing the boys played on when they went swimming in the creek. I think I wanted to be an adventurous boy when I was young.
