Hi Kathie,
Your card is gorgeous! Love the blue and white tea cup. Your pin and flowers are just perfect.

Soccer went well until we got the worst ref ever. The Girls played up, U15 and they are U 14.
The girls made it to the play offs and the ref kept calling the fouls on our girls and nothing on the older girls who were pushing and shoving ( not to mention the older girls were a head taller than our girls) our girls. Our coach was so mad he got a yellow card and was told to sit down from the ref. We were very proud of the team they did so well! Thanks for asking. How are your boys?
