Wisconsin Bound

Dad and I took one last road trip to close out the season. We'll probably hit a Beach Bums game later this month, but the Wisconsin trip was a blast. We caught a 7:05 game on Tuesday and a matinee at noon on Wednesday before heading home.
The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers lost both games to the Kane County Cougars. Tuesdays game went ten innings with the Cougars winning 4-2. Wed. afternoon the T-Rats lost 3-1. We saw some good baseball and met a lot of really nice people on our trip. Fox Cities Stadium is a nice place to watch a game and we had really good weather for both games. I can't wait until next years trip.

Get To The Point...

While I was stuck working a double shift, Lisa took the kids out to the Crisp Point lighthouse for some fun in the sun. Lucky for them, it was a beautiful day to spend on Lake Superior. The kids had a great time with mom playing in the water and searching for the elusive agate stones. Next time I hope I can tap along for the fun. We don't get too many nice days up this way, so I'm glad they could take advantage of one.

Hawks Take 3rd Place In Sault Soccer

The Hawks pounded the Panthers in the 3rd place game 6-1 on Thursday night. Trevor played really well, and came close again to netting his first goal in the first half. In the second half, it was a 2 on 0 for the Hawks, and I thought Trevor's teammate might pass it to him and give him a shot.
The second place team the Hawks beat three times, and the chamionship team we lost to only 1-0 when the ref gave them a free shot right in front of the goal.
Trevor really enjoyed his first soccer experience this season and wants to play next year, too. Lily will be playing next season also now that she's all healed up from surgery. Trevor has his soccer banquet on Tuesday night.
