World Cup Soccer is being played in South Africa now and for the next few weeks – which means it’s soccer season in our house! Not that it isn’t always soccer season here, but this is the big times.
25 years of soccer since DS2 started playing
He’s in the red – winning the ball from a player from Mexico in a tournament in California – his first international, when he was 16.
He’s now a coach (in the blue),
has been involved with ages 10-19, and has taken his teams to international games several times.
World Cup is only played every 4 years, and is a month of being able to watch the top players in the world. Sadly, Canada didn’t win a spot in the tournament this time – maybe in 2014. So Germany is our country, and we’ll be rooting for them.
We’re off for a vacation this afternoon, taking TV and computer with us so we can catch a few games over the next two weeks – we’ll be home in time for the Round of 16 to start, and all the finals.
Our vacation – heading for the fabulous Oregon Coast, with DH’s brother and sis-in-law, trailers in tow. We’re almost all loaded up, will take the cat to the sitter in just a little while, and then one last check to make sure we didn’t forget anything…..
If I get a chance I’ll share pictures once in a while.
Happy Soccer, everyone Peg
