Another perk about my trip back home, was the opportunity to attend one of Caden’s soccer games. He’s quite the little athlete, and at age 7 keeps very busy with baseball, football, basketball and two soccer teams. It was so fun to see the speedy little man dash up and down the field. He is really fast and has great foot skills for someone so young. Plus, he’s just so stinkin’ cute in that little uniform (he's number 2 in the white and green uniform)!
At the game, I was the paparazzi. For real. I took 200+ photos in 50 minutes. For those who have shot a fast-moving sports like soccer, you know how hard it is to get a perfect shot. And, I was trying to get more than one perfect shot. Not only did I want to scrap a few pages about Caden playing soccer, per a very special request, I’m also creating a book for him.
You may recall the Princess Kylee book I created for my niece this past Christmas. A few weeks ago, my sister, Missy, was reading the book to the kids and when she finished, Caden asked, “Mommy, do you think Aunt Toni would make me a book about me?” When you receive a request like that, how can you resist? So, a book about Caden the Sports Super-Star he will get!
I hope everyone in the States had a happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend. In doing so, I hope you took a moment to remember and honor the men and women in our Armed Forces, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice to make our wonderful nation what it is. A big thank you to all of our military personnel and their families.
