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

Bake at 105 for three hours

Soccer camp started Monday. Little Bit was already soccered out because I was at camp an hour before it started. So, I think she was already hot and tired by the time her group started. She lasted about 20 minutes. I felt sort of bad for the coach and the other kids.

This was about all she did in that 20 minutes. Other than whine for mom.

So, I asked her if she wanted to play. She said "I'll play after I'm 4." We've been telling her she gets to play on a team after her next birthday and Christmas (because she can't play till February). So, she was content with that.

Cute pic of my boy. Those two front teeth are about to fall out any moment now. I felt bad for the gal behind him with the cottage cheese thighs. She'd die if she saw this picture.

More pics coming. Hot Rod is kicking ass and taking names during the scrimmages. Good player, he is, my young soccer jedi. These are the 6-, 7- and 8-year-olds in their World Cup teams. Hot Rod is on the far left oin the row closest. That is the Italian team there in the yellow jerseys except for Hot Rod in his white t-shirt. They're a powerhouse. They went 2-0-1 today in scrimmaging. My boy scored once or twice and had at least two assists in the three games today.

    Hey! If I were in Texas I would think those were my thighs. Fear not, we are just as hot up here in Oklahoma and, sadly, my son has some unfortunate toilet habits to refine before he can play any organized sports. Not that he seems to care enough to do anything about it...

    115? That is insane. I'm going crazy when we hit a heat index of 105 today... How anyone could live like that is beyond me...

    Yeah, but we get 105 with humidity

    It sucks ass

    I'd much rather spend the summer out in West Texas. It'll be 112, but if you get out of the sun, you'll be fine. Here, there's no escape.

    Suffice it to say that the weather sucks!!!

    Look at Little Bit in those first two pictures. If you gave her blonde hair, she'd look like the little Coppertone baby with the doggie pulling down her swim bottoms. Doesn't she?
