Army of Mom

I love the pics. The one with "shawn bradley" actually shows the tallest kid on our team! That shows you how much bigger these behemoths were than our boys! And, we beat them 2-1. Nanny nanny boo boo!!! I love it. We even lost our two best players over the past two seasons!!!

Anyway. Not that I'm a proud momma or anything. I did have to laugh that the best action shot of Pickle is him running through the high fives at the end of the game. Ha. Even Coach (Army of Dad) said he played well this game. Only got fussed at once for being out of position.

He's a cutie!!! great pics, as always!


fantastic. I'm your biggest fan.

Eww, I just sounded like Paula Abdul.


My hat's off to ya about being at your kid's soccer games.
I have a secret over the years in that I'm soooo glad none of my sons had a serious interest in team sports.
I was never good at them myself, and didn't really want to cultivate enthusiasm for the comaraderie of other moms in the same position.

However, if photo ops like this are the result, bring it on!

Army of Mom

oh, the poor kid is screwed in this household. Me and the Mr. are both GIANT sports fans and so is Uzz. So, if he doesn't like sports, he is doomed. I fear that he'll be a band dork or something and I'll have to feign great interest in clarinets and those little wooden things you have to lick before you can play them.


LOL for AoM! That's real close to what I have! only it's a guitar. I could buy a month's groceries for what goes out for strings and cables and woofers for the amps.
Oldest son was a Thespian in high school--so I helped with sets and costumes.
Middle son is in college, a Math major. I remember one field trip to hear a guest lecture about 3 hours away.
We get our exercise with bicycles. There's a great paved path park/shortcut which follows an old railroad right-of-way.


MrsDof - You want to hear something funny? I was/am the following in school and out:

Thespian - not only an actor, but I got every lead role in every school play for YEARS...ended getting kicked out because I told the drama coach she needed to learn her craft better.

Photography - After getting kicked out of drama I ended up in Yearbook and Newspaper and picked up my first camera...within 3 months I had won Best of Show for Landscape photography at a national competition at East Texas State University...I was hooked and its what I do for a living now!

Music - There may be bigger music nuts, but I don't know them. I have thousands of CDs and over 15,000 songs on an external hard drive!

Sports - I am a walking encyclopedia of sports trivia...scary some of the things I know about it.

In addition to all this, I know computers, psychology, sociology and history well enough that I think I could teach!

That said, our poor kid has a lot of influences and that suits me just fine:-)

Army of Dad

Well to be fair he got fussed at one other time when he was waving at the CareFlight helicopter instead of paying atention to the game.

That said, he really did play well.

  • Original Soundtrack - Falling Slowly

    Falling Slowly
    Original Soundtrack: Once

    You may have seen Glen Hansard And Marketa Irglova play this song live during the Oscar' well as her beautiful speech. Maybe the most beautiful love song I have heard in the past 10 years.

  • Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Killing The Blues

    Killing The Blues
    Robert Plant & Alison Krauss: Raising Sand

    I have had this CD, but had not listened to it...until I heard this song used in a weird as it sounds, they have a great chemistry!

  • Sara Bareilles - Love Song

    Love Song
    Sara Bareilles: Little Voice

    Yet ANOTHER song I discovered through a commercial! Her voice is impressive and the vibe of the whole CD makes it worth taking a shot on.

  • Vampire Weekend - Oxford Comma

    Oxford Comma
    Vampire Weekend: Vampire Weekend

    The new critics darlings are definitely an acquired taste, but the lyrics are highly literate, the songs are smart and the arrangements are delightfully quirky! Vampire Weekend certainly deserves the hype!

  • Yael Naïm - New Soul

    New Soul
    Yael Naïm: Yael Naim

    Another song I discovered from a commercial! This is that jaunty little number you hear in the new MacBook Air can't help but smile:-)
