Upside Down

MO Here  - Just letting you all know that there was another world class Mer & Mo moment this past weekend. My god-daughter was in a soccer tournament and the Mer family was going to be closer to me travel wise, so I took this opportunity to meet up with them. Met up with Mer and the gang on Saturday night for Goalie Wars (thank goodness the rain stopped during this event) and then I drove back over on Sunday with the Aman and we got to see a few games, play at the park and had good quality Mer & Mo time together. It was nice! Sunday the weather was the best - a little breeze - a little sun - no real clouds - and to enjoy the time together around the kids, a great playing kid park and well, it was a nice way to catch up. Not like the last 45 minute visit.

Saturday night was goalie wars. If you have ever watched a soccer game, this is nothing like it. Here were these 11, 12, 13, 14 and I think 15 year olds going against each other - two on two. The Soccer Goals were closer together and each goalie had 3 minutes or 3 goals to win. The pace was fast, quick and amazing!! Mer was right, well worth the drive! Boy, can these kids throw. There was this one kid (or should I say teenager) that had this great way of getting that goal into the right area. Throwing with his right, he would have the speed, and the ball would curve just to the left at the last minute and into the left pocket of the goal it would go - One - Two - Three - WINNER.

Oh - to be a teenager again and have that much energy our on a soccer field. I am working towards that goal - well, maybe not quite like a teenager, but it would be nice to have more energy. Getting there and that is a good thing.

Ending the game on Sunday

Tough team to play - but the girls did a GREAT job!!!!!

In the course of our Mer & Mo moment I asked the man in the group to take our picture. Now, that was a huge mistake - you can't seem to get Mer's hubby to actually take a picture without having some kind of fun. We laughed so much that I couldn't resist but share these two moments with you.

Who gave him the camera? What the heck?

Pretty good picture, if I can say so myself
Thanks Mer's Hubby for helping us out!! LOL

More to share, but it will have to wait for another day. I didn't get my workout in this morning, but do plan for this afternoon. So much to do - so little time - staying focused. June will be a maintenance month for me. Work schedule for the next three weeks is from about 5:30 am until 2 pm and then many hours after work making sure my Cub Scout Day Camp is ready - June 20th can't come soon enough! The list of stuff is bigger then I thought - where did my plan go? Yes, it is very rewarding  - not complaining! The one thing that is going to keep me in check is the that I joined with the challenge from Alan - exercise each day and be accountable for it!!! Glad that many others are joining us - going to be a GREAT month!! 

Staying MOtivated MO

Funny photos. Ah, I remember cub scouts. I was a leader for my youngest all the years and the boys in our den just all graduated from high school!
