Busy, busy, busy

Busy weekends can be so much fun, but man are they exhausting.  It was our home soccer tournament this weekend, and we have three children playing in the league.  We had six soccer games on Saturday, back to back to back..., from 8:20 am until the last game at 5:40 pm.  Plus, we had one shift to work it during two of the games.  Sunday there were 5 games, but there was some overlap.   First games at 8:20, last game at 1:40.  Plus, we had to work 2 two-hour shifts.  Two of our teams did great!  Our daughter's team won the championship for her bracket in double overtime.  So exciting!  Our 8 year old's team won all four games, with the last goal of the season being scored by the only child to not score all year.  The crown went wild!  Our 12 yr old's team, not so much.  They just couldn't get the ball in the goal, only scoring one goal in 3 games.  Luckily, they won their league standings last week, so the season wasn't all bad.

I have no pictures, since watching soccer games while taking care of two toddlers is a full-time occupation. 

Oh, and at the end of it all, we still had trick-or-treating!  The whole family fell down exhausted by 8:30 last night. 

I'm going to try to take a nap.
