**********I started this post on Monday. It literally took me three days to load all these pictures onto blogger. What is UP with that?? Is anyone else experiencing difficulties with loading pictures, or is it just me?*************
Look at this beautiful little soccer player:
That's my sweet Girlie, and I love her so.
We are now in the middle of outdoor soccer season, and I'm enjoying it while the weather stays above freezing. Sproutie and ZimDee are loving it too:SproutieZimDeeSproutie taking it easy on the sidelines.
Girlie is improving every year. She's got a great coach this year, and she's learning a lot.
But what she does best is Goalie:She is truly gifted in that position. I think she likes it best because it involves less running (she takes after me, you know). I am very proud of her, and she takes pride in doing it well. She says to me, "Mom, no ball gets past me!" And she's right. You go, baby girl.
In knitting news, I've finished the secret test knitting project for Chrissy and I will be showing it to her tonight at the Tigard Knitting Guild meeting. It was a fun little knit.
Congratulations go out to Tam for winning the movie line contest from The Color Purple. Way to wow me with your elaborate explanation of what you thought of this movie in your very long, drawn-out answer, there, Girlfriend. :)
I'm resting my fingers today and taking time out to play with my children before the craziness of the Sock Wars begins tomorrow. Instead of disappearing completely, I will be posting daily reports so you can stay informed of my progress and share in the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.It's a top secret mission, I know, but instead of giving away my position if my blog is infiltrated, I think it may serve the purpose of scaring my enemies. Oh, who am I kidding? I'm going to get creamed, but you'll be with me every step of the way, won't you? Aren't you excited? I know I am. I am listed in the forum as "Force of Nature". Hey, if they're going to name a hurricane after me without my permission, I might as well go with it, hmm?

And a big shout out now to my fellow Sock Warriors and friends, mamma and Chrissy. Good luck, ladies! I'll be rooting for you!
