I wasn't able to go to the fair last Saturday and see the handspun/
woven judging because all three of our grandsons had games. None overlapped, so we were able to see them all. This is five-year-old Evan's team in the blue, the Sea Monsters. They only field three on a team, which makes so much more than sense, but even so they end up kicking each other's shin guards.
The games are mercifully only 30 minutes long and this is a half-time carbo-loading break with Ritz crackers.
Then we were off to 10-year-
old Kiernan's football game, where there were as many cheer-
leaders as ball players. The Sierra Youth Football League is attached to high schools as a kind of feeder program, so this is Wooster High School and Kiernan's team are the Colt Freshmen.
It's super hot and Kiernan (#38) is clearly not having the time of his life. We are all sitting under umbrellas in an attempt to dodge the heat.
Lexie Lu has a bag of grapes and cherries which she has graciously offered to share with me. She started kindergarten on Monday
After a quick lunch at In-n-Out Burger, the only fast food I will eat and the first time this year, we moved on to 9-year-old Logan's soccer game. His team are the Green Virus. I don't know - I didn't ask.
Logan absolutely loves this game, and I have to say that it's a heck of a lot easier and more comfortable to watch than the American form of the sport.
We left here at 8:45 and got home at 3:30. The weather couldn't have been better, and we got to spend relaxed, easy time with our families. It was almost like a holiday but without the presents.
