The boys were invited to work out with the High School JV team tonight. They were a little intimidated at first but seemed to do quite well. The coach gave them a taste of what high school practice will look like with a ton of running. The are doing a track workout with them tomorrow. Games next week.
We didn't do much this weekend but did manage to spend a fortune on suits for the boys. They look good in them and I'm hoping they last a few years. Besides all the consuming, it was a very quiet weekend with some extra sleep and good workouts for everyone.
Sam was chosen for the Raising Freshman All Star team. The game was Wednesday and fun to watch. It was pretty wide open basketball for the fun of it. Sam played well. I think dylan is an all star too but only two were chosen from the Twain team. Sammy looks thrilled in this picture.
This is the Santiago Calatrava World Trade Center transportation hub. It replace the Path station and subway terminal that used to be under twin towers. It took 12 years to build but it is pretty impressive. Not as cool as the Milwaukee Art Museum and it's moving wings. We visited this and the 911 Memorial on Saturday.
Dylan's team ended up drawing 1-1 today. Lots of good defense on each side. Good sports day for the boys. They played a great football game, coached a 3rd/4th team and then dylan played a solid soccer game. All in the rain.
The boys played a near perfect game against the Falcons this morning in a driving rain. The final was 36-14. Dylan ran for three touchdowns and Sam threw for a TD and anchored the defense that didn't allow a score until late in the game when we started slacking off a bit. Dylan has a soccer game at 6 so a fire was necessary to dry his shoes. That and I wanted one last blaze before summer.
The boys won a tight game against a close school rival West Potomac. Their future high school coach was on the bench with them which made it even more intense. One more game on Wednesday, then payoffs next week.
