Soccer and showers

M.I.S.T. soccer tournament
Note: The game is playing in this shot. They need to work on maintaining position, wouldn't you agree?

This weekend was Mississippi Invitational Soccer Tournament (MIST) held near Carleton Place. It was a nice sized tournament with only 6 teams in our grouping. The location was close to home Carleton Place now has most everything one might need on short notice.

Surprisingly we made out not too bad on the weather. We left the house at about 6:45 am in a torrential downpour but it stopped by the time we arrived. All day Saturday and Sunday morning it would flicker back and forth between hot and sunny to cold rains and strong winds. That pretty much sums up the summer of '09 so far.

Oh yeah, the girls didn't fare so well in the tourney - lost three (2 of the losses were in shootouts) and won one. In the end it was still good practise and excellent team bonding. ;-)

Opa and Amber joined us for the Sunday game followed by hamburgers and ice cream from The Cheddar Stop. Yum.
