Week 35 {365} Great Ending Part 2

What was a rough start to this week has turned into a great ending. Our day in Moline couldn't have been nicer. 70s and sunny, a beautiful afternoon spent together hiking and hanging (in between games), and 2 wins to boot.

For those of you who are in club anything, I commend you. It is quite the sacrifice. But when you have a child that is passionate about something, you make those options available to them. This transition from community to club has been a bit of a difficult one for little man. He went from being the big dog to the underdog. Although he had two assists and several great passes, he didn't make any of the goals today. I'm proud of him all the same and I know that this is where he needs to be. He is growing. And I'm the proud mama with the oversized jersey cheering him on.

  9. Little Man has your smile. :-) Loving your Project 365 photos. I've been doing a similar project at home called "Project Life" created by Becky Higgins - it's not digital, but a scrapbook hybrid of sorts. I'm behind on that, as well as the regular scrapbooks per usual...haha.

  10. Alicia your photos are awesome! Love the vivid colors. And looking at your P365 layout reminds me that I really need to decide on a final P365 project.

    Enjoy your Labor Day!

  11. just read through your last few posts - sorry to hear of little'mans encounter w/ a bully - but so glad to hear of how you handled it and the outcome - sometimes it's so much better to step back, and let our mind take over our emotions - although it's not easy.
    love your collage idea - it looks great -
    hope this week starts off much better!!!
