Way to go!!!!!

They had a giant water slide the kids eyed all weekend. After the last game we let them cool off and have some real fun!!!!!!

The kids played in the annual Aiken Cup this weekend. This is the tournament that their club puts on every year. They love it and it is a great kick-off to their "fall" season!!! I say "fall" season.... as anyone who knows the south in August knows there is NO fall weather to be found this time of year. In fact, we had near 100 degree temps all weekend with just a few gusts of hot air courtesy of Irene. After 21 hours of soccer we headed home with 2 medals, some skinned knees, blisters, sunburns and tired aching muscles. Julia's U14 team won their division and Sam's U10 team won 2nd place. Way to go Bulls!!!!! It was a great weekend of soccer and we were so proud of the way they both played under those HOT conditions. Julia scored 4 goals over 2 days and Sam helped keep LOTS of goals out-he plays defense..... with a vengeance!
