Ohh What a Weekend

I hope everyone had a great weekend. It was a typical weekend for us. Typical in the fact that our Saturday's are filled with kids sports. We started off the day with Brandon's game. He plays wide receiver this year. Very different from his usual defence corner position. I have to say it's been a frustrating year. He is used to being on the winning team. It's been a challenge and he has had to learn to take the good with the bad.

Well they lost this game 12-14. Mom will for sure be glad when the season's over. OHHH well that is just life with lot's of good days and plenty of bad days.

I actually left dad at the game in the 4th quarter to run to the water polo game where Alyssa was playing. This was a much different game with Alyssa's team winning 12-2. I know you really can't tell by the angle of the camera but Alyssa is driving the ball in and made a perfect shot right in the corner pocket of the net.

For those of you that have never watched a water polo game first of all it's completely exhausting. My girls always say it's 3 times harder than a swim meet. It's pretty much 4 quarters of pure sprinting. It's kind of like playing soccer, wrestling, basketball and swimming all in one sport. Anyway, I captured this perfect shot of Alyssa playing defense and actually stealing the ball. The other girl is under water you can kind of see her. I think Alyssa is trying to drown her. Believe me there is plenty of "try to drown your opponent" that goes on.

Good news is that my oldest daughter Rachael was asked by the coach to run the clock and scoreboard during the season. So she comes up from college on Saturday and works the games. She makes really good money doing it and I get to see her for a brief moment. However, the season is over next week. Not a great photo but you can see that she is taking a break during a time out.

I seriously should be a sports photographer. It's pretty sad but 90% of the photos I take are sports related. I love it. Someday when my kids and no longer is sports I am really going to miss this.

I love the life of a sports mom, don't you? I will be sad when it's over too. I think Dan and I will have to just show up at the high school and pick a kid to cheer for! Sorry about Brandon's loss. We lost to your favorite team this weekend too. Darn!
