Benton’s Fall Sports

Date October 20, 2012

Benton bounced between soccer and cross country through the fall (apparently, he’s been too busy to get a decent haircut!):

Alana Played Football this Fall

Date October 19, 2012

Well, she played a little American football: Mostly, she played what the rest of the world calls football (and this IS a tiny fraction of the pictures I actually took)!

Spring = Soccer

Date April 18, 2012

It’s spring, so spring sports are in full swing. For Benton, that means track (through school), soccer, and baseball (practice…the season doesn’t start for a while). For the next few months, our Saturdays will have a lot of this: And this:

Alana’s Fall Sport: Soccer

Date October 16, 2011

Alana has had a busy fall of soccer, which she has thoroughly enjoyed.   On the day these pictures were taken, her father proposed that she put her hair into a pony tail, but she insisted that was not necessary.   Hanging out a Benton’s game — a girl’s gotta’ just chill sometimes:

Benton’s Fall Sports — Soccer and Cross Country

Date October 15, 2011

It’s been a busy fall on a lot of fronts, which is my excuse for not posting. I’ll see if I can get caught up with a few posts over the next few days. Starting off, Benton made his first foray into school-run sports by running cross country this fall. We’re not sure where exactly [...]

How to Give a 12-Year-Old Boy a Good Night’s Sleep

Date May 22, 2011

Saturday, May 21, 2011. 9:00 AM — Benton’s first soccer game of the end-of-season tournament Sanga (Benton’s team) wins…although the camera caught Benton getting burned by an opposing player right in front of the parents’ sideline (for which he received some lighthearted ribbing…and proceeded to almost get the giggles on field): 10:30 AM — Benton’s [...]

First Soccer Games of the Year

Date April 9, 2011

Somehow, we managed to have each of our three kids playing two sports apiece this spring — 2 soccers, 3 baseballs, 1 flag football. Today was the start of the soccer season. What a difference a season makes. Alana largely just “chased the action” in the fall, but she actually got in and played in [...]

Fall Soccer Starts

Date September 12, 2010

Saturday marked the beginning of the fall soccer season for both Benton and Alana. Benton got back into soccer last fall and played again in the spring, and he was almost giddy about getting back on the field (ahem…back on the pitch). This is Alana’s first time to play, though. As Julie tweeted, Benton’s game [...]

Last Soccer Games of the Season

Date May 29, 2010

Soccer season for Benton ended last weekend. He had an end-of-season tournament, where his team was expected to play two games before being knocked out (which they were), followed by the first baseball games of the season as a doubleheader. As it turned out, the baseball games got cancelled at the last minute due to [...]
