Social Distancing

Sunday, March 29th, 2020

Our lives have certainly slowed down due to COVID-19 closures. There are no soccer games, no refereeing, no swimming, no school, no travel, no anything.  Tristan is still working at Chick-Fil-A and Kimberlie and I still work (although about half of mine is telework).  Mackenzie and Rilianne are bored out of their minds. Fortunately, the weather has been beautiful!

Referee Mack

Yesterday was Mackenzie’s first time refereeing a soccer game. She attended the class earlier this year and is looking forward to making a little extra money when she’s not on the field playing.

Olympic Qualifying: USWNT in Houston

Saturday, February 1st, 2020

One of Mackenzie’s Christmas gifts was tickets to the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying. Basically, Mackenzie got to see her favorite soccer team, the world cup champions US Women’s National Team, play a game in Houston.

Yesterday morning, we skipped work and school and flew out to Texas. I found a colleague from work on the plane and she sat right next to us. She was going to a wedding in Houston.

We arrived early enough to take a nap and explore downtown Houston a bit.  I wish we had time to check out the Johnson Space Center, but there’s always next time!

The event was actually a double-header. The first game was Costa Rica Vs. Haiti. Not too many folks were in the stadium for that game so we were able to enjoy it from down low.

After the first game, it was time for US vs. Panama. We had to move up to our assigned seats, which weren’t bad, but they weren’t nearly as good as sitting behind the players.  Of course, the US smoked Panama and secured their spot in the Olympics!

Soccer Weekend: Cumming

Saturday, December 7th, 2019

This weekend, Mackenzie played in a soccer tournament at Sawnee Mountain Park in Cumming.  Our home base was Alpharetta, which has lots of places to eat and lots of things to do.

The soccer tournament did not go well because we were mismatched against some powerhouse teams. But during the downtime, we made the most of our time there.

Rilianne went to Build-a-Bear Workshop and made a new friend.

Then, we spent time at one of the nicest playgrounds in Georgia.

This afternoon, I was able to attend one of Mackenzie’s final middle school soccer games. I got some great shots!

Soccer Saturday: Gainsville

Saturday, November 16th, 2019

Mackenzie played at another new soccer complex this morning: Allen Creek Park in Gainsville.

On the way home, we stopped at the Mall of Georgia and ate at Shake Shack. Its beginning to look at a lot like Christmas!

Another Home Soccer Game!

Mackenzie had another home soccer game today!  It’s nice to play five minutes from the house.  Here are some shots from the game:
