Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.



Today. It.Happened.

Pickle scored his first goal in four years. His last goal was in the under 6 "herd ball" leagues. He was so beside himself. He has cried at the end of the last five or six games because he wants SOOOO badly to score. Our team is good and he has a lot of competition to get his foot on the ball around the goal. But, today, it happened.

I was so happy for him that I ripped off my shirt and ran around the field Brandi Chastian style.

Not really.

But, the sound of GOOOOOAAAALLLLLLLL echoed through my head. The sidelines erupted with cheers because we all knew how badly he wanted to score. I had to fight back tears, I was so happy for him to finally get his goal.

Not a pic from today, but this is my boy on the move.

Congratulations son.

    And of course I was unable to be there for it!!! He is pretty proud of himself! I treated him to anywhere he wanted to eat for dinner tonight, so he picked Black Eyed Pea and I made it so!
