Game on...& Birthday wishes

Well, here we are at the end of March and I have yet to hold up my end of the Blogging bargain. Problem is, there's only one of me...contrary to popular belief.

Along with all the other stuff I've gotten myself involved in, it is now soccer season. And I must say, this season is TOTALLY different than the last. You may remember, Jayla's team, Brazil was the newby to the U10 "circuit". And it showed by them losing all but ONE game. Ok, that's not totally accurate...their first game was a tie :-).

This season, however, has been MUCH better. They've only played 4 games thus far (due to a couple of rain outs). And of those 4, they have won 3.  All of which were come backs from being behind by 1 - 3 goals.  I am SO loving this season. Considering the girls haven't had much practice, again due to the rain, they are doing awesome so far.

I've been saying for quite some time that I wish you all could see my Jayla play. Well, I attempted (and I use that term loosely) to video some of a game from this weekend. Check them out...

WAIT...before you look at these videos, PLEASE NOTE #1 I am using a small camera with video "capabilities".  #2  I've never used this feature on the camera before (guess this one should've been #1, huh?) #3 The sun was very bright :-) and #4 I've never used this feature on the camera before, LOL.

------------Ok, here's the thing...I can't figure out how to add a video to Blogger. Wasn't there a little button for that once upon a time? HUH!!!

Anyway, I'll go ahead and post what I've written so far and attempt to find the video adding link and I'll get back with you :-D.

Oh, and before I go, PLEASE join me in wishing my FAVORITE nephew a HAPPY 15th BIRTHDAY today!  I just don't have any other words to say about that...other thank I can't believe he's FIFTEEN!!!

Markell's first Easter in 1995

And most recently (I think this was from last year) Don't have any recent pix of him. But as soon as I get one, I'll post it.
