I know I haven't posted since July 15th (almost two months!), when I said I would post when I got back from vacation, but then didn't.
Vacation was wonderful. I got to see my aunt and uncle I haven't seen in 5 years and my nana and uncle and cousins I haven't in 2-5 years. We went up in the mountains and went to a theme park and I went to my first pro soccer game with my dad!
In soccer news, I made the ODP (Olympic Developmental Program) team, and went to Illinois for regional camp! It was awesome. We played Ohio, Nebraska, Michigan and the Dakotas. We won two, tied one and lost one. An okay record, but it was a great experience! That was in July and I'll find out if I made the team for this coming season in a few days.
My club soccer team is starting its fall league, we had a scrimmage today and league games start this weekend. Busy, busy!
The fair went really well. Willow got Grand Champion, Penny got Reserve Grand Champion and Lucy and Quinoa both got blue ribbons. The judge says he can't wait to see Lucy back next year, because he thinks she will mature very well.
The boy I babysit is joining 4-H this coming year, so I let him show Lucy for one of the rounds. He didn't get a ribbon, it was like practice and he was very nervous, but with more experience and training, he'll do super well next year. When I say I'm his babysitter, that's the simplest explanation, he's really like a little brother to me and he's my best buddy.
I got 7 blue ribbons and 1 red for my photography and one of them went to state! Pretty exciting stuff.
Look at that naughty girl, up on the van. Hasn't she grown?
This is the picture that went to state!
