The day started with soccer. Our youngest had two soccer games. We knew she had one. The second was a scheduling surprise.
So we go see the Blue team play, they haven't come up with a name, and the young lady scores seven goals in her first game. The picture below is one of the seven going into the goal.
During the second game which followed within minutes of the first game she scores six more goals. That was surprising. Thirteen goals in two games. Very impressive.
We also discovered it is very difficult to take action pictures with the camera when you are trying to watch your child. You should see some of the shots we delete after the games.
At the same time all the above activity was going on Boodles, our ten year old, was playing a game at the other end of the sports complex.
Boodles played a different position than she had before and the ball was flying toward the goal. She scored a goal of her own, sent another sailing off the goal cross bar, and assisted on two other goals. She had also set up her team mates with some great crossing passes. Boodles and her team in Pink won their game
She was very excited about the result of the game, the team work displayed, and her contributions to the win. It was great to see her creativity on the field. There are no action shots from this game because dad can't multitask with watching, screaming, and taking photos. I'm working on it.
Saturday afternoon we switched to football.
What happened to Florida? Welcome to Southeastern Conference (SEC) football. Urban Meyer, some times you feel like a Nutt, sometimes you don't. Didn't you notice that Urban's press conference isn't the same when he and his team lose in The Swamp.
Then Auburn survives their game putting a beating on the Volunteers from Tennessee. I feel bad that Payton came to manage the spin for Coach Fulmer. Things will be rough in rockybottom for another week.
But the night cap was the featured game. Bama versus Georgia. Crimson Tide versus the Bulldogs. Number 8 in the nation against number 3. The first half was unreal. Georgia played like number 2, the stinky stuff.
Hey Dawgs, remember last year? We did. Ug Ah! 31-0 at halftime. The Tide rumbled over the blacked out dogs oh! sorry, Dawgs! I couldn't believe how quiet it was between the shrubbery!
It appears that Dawg don't hunt or do football at least last night!
If they clean up the penalties they might have a chance. Coach Richt has a persona of being on the up and up, but he has a team that is the most penalized in the SEC. We appreciated the help.
Just having some fun. Georgia has a real talented team. I can't wait to see the Georgia vs. Florida game.
Can't wait to see the poll rankings! ROLL TIDE!

The Homecoming parade goes right between the schools so everyone gets to come out and see it go through town. You may recognize the little lady with the paw prints on her face as she prepares for the parade to go past.
then you run back and ride.
Then everyone went to the Homecoming game on Friday night. It was a much better social event than football game.
My man H, used the game to play tackle football with some "bigger" guys. He is getting interested in playing contact football. We are hoping between now and next season that he bulks up. He really does enjoy it.

It appears the only thing that went wrong at the game was my camera. It was very warm.

Instead of people making this political they should begin to understand the implications of what is happening and the connections around the world. It is not all about greed. It is not all Wall Street. Much of what we are watching has taken place on Main Street and down the street from where we live.
The oversight that was to be put in place was designed when the trading and banking systems came in person to a window with a slip of paper. Today the trades and decisions happen in milliseconds, twenty four hours a day all around the world.
This started in the sub prime market. Then the capital markets. Small businesses are looking for credit. The fundamental building blocks of our economy are being thrown around like children's toys.
Technology has driven productivity. However, it appears to have moved so quickly that the markets are unsure of who owns what to whom.
Imagine. A large financial institution on Wall Street failed. A bank in Asia is shaking because it loaned large sums of money to that institution. Countries around the world today were putting dollars into the system so that their economy would not .
Our economy is shaking. Our nations comfort and security is at risk. It is time for serious people to step forward with serious solutions to make this country, our citizens, and our way of life sound.

What a day it was! She scored four goals in her first game. I know, I'm her dad so I am suppose to brag politely. But, four goals. Impressive.
Can't wait to see week two.

To many people this day signals the last day of Summer. Pools close, schools open, white shoes must be stored, and the fall events begin.
Whichever event you are celebrating today have a safe, happy, holiday. Enjoy your Labor Day.
