Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt - Sports

Join us for the Photo Hunt!

This week's photo theme is sports (in honor of Father's Day).

It just so happens that my boys went to the Charlotte Eagles Soccer Camp this week. The Charlotte Eagles are a pro soccer team. They have a Christian soccer camp every summer!
The older kids are put on 'world' teams to compete, just like the real World Cup!
My oldest son, Game Master, was placed on the "Italy" team. He was thrilled to be on "Coach Josh's" team again this year!

The best news:

Italy won the World Cup!!

(Well, my Italy, anyway!)

How cool is that! Great picture. Guess I will go post mine since everyone else is doing so early!

I left the sports out of mine and did it all about Father's Day!

Have a great weekend!

Must have been really exciting to watch your son play and win it at the end.

My photo is up too. Happy weekend!

Before I was myself you made me, me
With love and patience, discipline and tears,
Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

Allowing me to sail upon my sea,
Though well within the headlands of your fears.
Before I was myself you made me, me

With dreams enough of what I was to be
And hopes that would be sculpted by the years,
Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

Relinquishing your powers gradually
To let me shape myself among my peers.
Before I was myself you made me, me,

And being good and wise, you gracefully
As dancers when the last sweet cadence nears
Bit by bit stepped back to set me free.

For love inspires learning naturally:
The mind assents to what the heart reveres.
And so it was through love you made me, me
By slowly stepping back to set me free.

Karen said...

Look at that happy face! He'll remember that for the rest of his life.

I had to laugh when I read "Game Master." I refer to my oldest son as "Game Dude." *grin*

Enjoy the weekend!
