hot. hot. hot.

it's like a million degrees here.

i should be feeling sorry for these little stud boys who were playing their guts out in this heat.

and i do.
but c'mon, think. of. the. mommas!

before we left for the tournament, i made all us mommas these charms using an anagram with each boy's initial and a bingo/lotto piece for his soccer number. my lover, who also happens to be my husband, helped out with drilling through the anagram. it was my first real go with wire wrapping. definitely not perfect, but getting better.

it was fun to do something for the "team".

all packaged and ready to share.

the cyclones were midwest cup tournament runner-ups! great job, boys!

and the mommas seemed to genuinely love their charms!

it was a happy, hot weekend!

EDIT: okay, i promise this is not turning into some sports blog...but please, PLEASE, click here and watch this precious soccer story! it's all about perspective.

and f.y.i. the coach is married to our flower girl. and we love him, too. :)

Your blog is so lovely and cool - I am definitely inspired! Hope we'll get a chance to chat again in the future - I can tell you are a kindred spirit! My best, Julie from tennis (Will's mom :-))

    Elliott, it looks like they clobbered you. How many did they have covering you? They must have known how fast you are! Sorry we missed it. Love, Auntie.
