Soccer practice has started with Nicholas ....



Last night was his first soccer practice and it must've been at least 98 degrees. It was sooooo hot but he was enjoying back into the swing of things!! He hasn't played soccer for 2 years (since we've moved to NC) so when he wanted to sign up when registraton came around, I was pretty happy about that!! He will have soccer practice Tues & Thurs nights. 10 boys and 2 girls are on his team. He has a very young coach who loves to joke around all the time. First game is Sat Sept 8th and all games will be on Saturdays. It will run about 9 weeks I think someone said.


Yesterday I had lunch with one of my stamping friends "Michelle". She lives in Lexington which is about 35 minutes from me so it wasn't far at all. We met at Zaxby's Chicken and we each got a grilled chicken salad. Mmmmmm. It was good. For those of you who don't know Michelle, her husband passed away about 2 weeks ago and those of us at the Stamp Shack took up a collection for her. Jan in Alaska had ordered a beautiful peace lilly and asked people to donate some money. Well, we were both so excited to see we had collected $405!!!! Boy was Michelle thrilled to see that!!!! We had a great time at lunch, then it was off to soccer when I returned home. I made Michelle a card with everyone's names on it on the inside who gave money. I decided at the last minute to make something "cute" to put the money in so this is what i "whipped" up yesterday. I think it came out pretty cute!!! She loved it.
