2012 Soccer Alumni Game (photo essay)

On Saturday, my son's high school soccer team played the annual alumni game. It was great to see so many alumni there, enjoying the beautiful day.
One of our mid-fielders broke his leg during the football season, so now he's our manager.  I loved his look.
And it was nice to get a good photograph of Henry's coach (didn't notice the cool reflection in his sunglasses until I uploaded these):
But for me, it was all about watching my boy:
The alumni kept the game close during the first half, but the Varsity eventually won 8-3. I can't wait for the rest of the season!
