Sunburned, windburned, blessed

What a weekend!

Middleman had a soccer tournament that began at 9:00 am on Saturday.  Luckily, it was a local tournament, so we didn't have to leave the house until 8:00.

They lost their first game, but not for a lack of trying.  The boys played very well, but this team was a tier above them.  Score : 2-1

The second game was at 11:45...ended in a 1-1 tie.

The third game was at 2:00...1-0 loss.

We were out of the tournament.  The boys played fantastically and should be very proud of the fact that they were able to keep these higher tiered teams to such small losses/a tie.  I was wind and sunburned and to be honest, glad that I would now have Sunday to clean the house and do the mountains of laundry.  After dinner, I was absolutely exhausted and headed to bed at 8:30. 

10:13 pm...the phone rings.  The team manager was calling to say that due to our low goals against, we were the wild card and would be playing in the quarter-finals.  The game was at 10:15 am on Sunday.

They won!

The semi-finals were at 12:45...WE WON AGAIN!

The finals were at 3:15.  We lost 3-1...against the same team as we played first on Saturday.

WHAT A DAY!  I am so, so proud of those boys!

But...

My house is s pig sty and the laundry is still piled high.  Middleman heads out to Quebec with his class tomorrow morning at 6:30 am, so I guess tonight is wash, dry, pack night!

Hubster and I are both BADLY sun/windburned (just on our faces thank goodness).  In fact, he is so bad that he is working from home today...he has a racoon mask because he was wearing sunglasses all day...he looks very funny! LOL  The weather was very sunny, but very cold and windy, so we didn't feel the burn until it was much too late.

Ah well, what's a summer without at least one burn, right?
