My Grandma's 90th Birthday Party

This past Saturday, we celebrated my grandmother's 90th birthday. My mom did a great job of putting together a special party just for her. It was at her retirement complex.
Sophia and Will were helping with name tags.

I think my grandma enjoyed seeing everyone and being the center of attention.

My mom provided a nice spread of snacks and sweets. And us girls (mostly Robin and Amy) helped. I tend to be more shy and hang back. But I did help occasionally. There is a special talent with talking with the elderly that I lack. I can talk to kids though, so that's ok.

Sophia enjoyed the cake.

My mom got my grandma's friend to perform for background music.

She also enjoyed helping Nana with the punch.

Will, future waiter, enjoyed swinging by tables to see if they needed anything and provided Andy's mints.

It was a great party and a great celebration of my grandma. Great job mom!

Soccer Saturday

Unfortunately, last weekend was Sophia's first 2 soccer games and she had a bug. So she had to miss. So this is officially her first game of their season. She's number 7, new uniforms...

She wasn't quite into it yet. Maybe it was having that time off plus no practice this week due to a Sunday game last weekend. Not to mention the shorts were about to fall off of her. But she followed the ball and focused.

This pic cracked me up...the kid staring Sophia down. Ha!

All in all, it was a good start. Can't wait to see how much she progresses and enjoys soccer as much as I did. Or not, who knows? She may not love it. So we'll see.
