Odds and Ends



We were treated to a visit from my brother. Sal this weekend! He came in to see my nephew play football mainly, but then he also came to see my boys play soccer. This meant a lot to me, because of my siblings, he is the other soccer parent in the bunch of us. Drew scored a couple of goals, and Peter did pretty well as goalie. Michael, well, I think we only had to run onto the field to get him about 3 times!



I have had questions about the rally! We went to see McCain and Palin late last week. I went with friends, but took Peter with me to show him some history. We were in line for about 2 hours which meant we were seated behind the media! It didn't matter, though, because it just felt really good to be surrounded by people who want the same thing!



I would like to say that I got pictures of John McCain and Sarah Palin, but couldn't. I tried taking pictures of them from the big screens that were up in the overflow area, but Andy said that, well, they looked like I took them from a TV. Oh well!

What an awesome memory you were able to make with your son. I loved the "kids for McCain & Palin" sign. Too cute!

I still remember when my Mom took me to Chicago to visit the Pope back in '82 - or was it '83? Can't remember, but it was still awesome!

Very cool lesson for your son. He'll never forget this one and what a good lesson you're teaching him about our country. Never know, you may have a future politician in the making.
