Cheap entertainment

Last night, two of our boys and I entered into a healthy competition. We were at a soccer field (I know that’s a surprise 😊) and we decided to shoot on each other. I figured out a way for the two boys to compete against me (if they compete against each other, typically war breaks...

Oasis in the desert

Yesterday, Sophia, Dallas, Isaiah, and I took a last-minute trip to St. Louis for some soccer games. Afterward, we ate some dinner and then had to decide whether to stay at the hotel or go out and find something to do. We decided to take on St. Louis. Our first stop was Ted Drewes custard....

Backpedaling

A week or so ago, I was helping coach one of our kid’s soccer games. It was a pretty close game and the referee was struggling. It seemed more difficult than normal for her to get to the correct vantage point to make the best calls. And then…in the middle of live play, while she...

What do you see?

A few days ago, our middle son Dallas celebrated his 12th birthday. We bought him gifts and let him choose dinner (Chinese Takeout) and spent some time reminiscing and celebrating. He entered this world aggressively (coming in about a month early) and hasn’t really slowed down at all. Dallas has never been one to wait...

This past Monday, the kids, Felipe and I decided to do some family soccer training. So we went to the field and warmed up. This didn’t take much since it was already incredibly hot out in the sun. After a bit, we began a 3V3 game. And everything was going fine until partway through game...

Yesterday, Leigh-Ann and I and the girls were invited to watch the US Women’s National Soccer Team play at Sporting Field. It was an AWESOME experience. To be honest, I think it was the first time I have been to a live international sporting event to root for my country. And the USWNT did not...

Who Cares?

What does it mean to care for someone? And, why is it important for you and I to care? These are questions that we’ll address on Sunday when we begin a new series entitled, “What if the Church Loves KC?” Specifically, we will study from John 13, where we read about Jesus washing the feet...

They said what?

This is a big weekend for our girls to play soccer. They are each headed off to play against competition from other parts of the country. And since traveling these distances are not customary, this is a big deal for each of them. They have worked hard and now they are able to enjoy some...

Hey

Last night after practice, four of our kids and I ended up having an entire indoor soccer field to ourselves. So we decided to spread out. Alexa practiced some shots on me in the goal and the three boys were about sixty yards away on the opposite end of the field, playing a game of...
