Bummer of a day for both Cairo and Briana. Cairo lost his game to his team's rivals and Briana lost her game. However, Briana's middle school team won on Thursday night with a score of 6-0. Yeah!
By the way, check out Briana's grill! She got braces last week is getting used to them quite well. She'll have them on for 15 months.
I had fun refereeing soccer today - 4 games - uggghh! My legs were pretty tired at the end of the day.
We get to go to FC Dallas' home opener tomorrow (Sunday)! It should be a fun time!

Briana, Cairo, and I then refereed for 3 hours in the afternoon. Cairo had the youngest players - 5 year olds, Briana had 7 year olds and then I had 9 year old players. It was alot of fun being out there in the middle of all of the action. There's a picture of all three of us in our referee uniforms.
Lastly, we got to see FC Dallas play the LA Galaxy and of course... David Beckham! He truly is awesome! I've never seen a soccer player like him. He's pretty much like a quarterback in American Football. He's got great vision of the field and he can pass the ball like a quarterback passing the ball in the front of the receiving forward while they're on a run. Simply incredible! He did this several times during the game. He took all of the free kicks and corner kicks for LA. I guess a low light for him was that he got a yellow card for dissent with the referees over a call or two. Every time he took a corner kick or free kick, hundreds of camera flashes would go off around the stadium. It was pretty hard to get pictures of the great passes and free kicks that he had, but I did get a picture of the yellow card. :) Check out the camera and cell phone camera getting a picture of the action. The stadium was the most filled I have ever seen it. It was great to see that!
By the way, I got a great deal on the tickets at a web site called http://www.stubhub.com/. This is a web site where normal people sell their tickets through this company StubHub. You can see exactly where the seats are - Section and Row and the price. We got the tickets for $12 a piece. A great deal considering that the face value was probably $25. I also got to see the Dallas Cowboys play the Minnesota Vikings during preseason for $25 while in Minneapolis last September. Check out StubHub for tickets to any sporting event, concert, etc.

Tomorrow night - Briana, Cairo, and I will be going to see FC Dallas take on David Beckham and the LA Galaxy. Should be a fun time! Bummer that Ursula has to work.
I'm happy and proud to report that I've lost 16.5 pounds since February 1st. I lost more weight before that time, but I wasn't really tracking it until February 1st. I cannot remember the last time I've felt this good.

Below are some of my favorite pictures of my Mom. Just going through these pictures make me realize how much I miss you, Mom! I cannot wait to visit with you again! However, I'll need to wait until it stops snowing in Ohio.

Ursula and I had fun in Philadelphia playing the role of tourists! It was great just being with Ursula for a weekend. We haven't really had the opportunity to travel for quite some time. It's defintitely a challenge with how busy the kids are with school, soccer and other activities.
My best Rocky impersonation!
