Goal today, Gone tomorrow

For years we have had a soccer goal in our front yard.  I know the neighbors probably hated it (but got used to it).  I am surprised the HOA didn’t give us nasty letters.  And even more amazed that errant… Continue Reading →


Doing laundry the other day I realized how much of my wardrobe is devoted to kids’ sports.  Between high school volleyball and soccer, club soccer and the Richmond Volleyball Club, I have a lot of T-shirts and sweatshirts to “represent”. … Continue Reading →
