Hello Monday

Photo Credit: Mark Foyer, Half Moon Bay Review
{Hello Monday} . . .  
Hello Soccer Playoffs . . . Henry's soccer team finished their regular season last week. And what a season it was!  They finished in first place, claiming the league championship with an 11-1-2 record. Their finish qualifies them to go to the California Central Coast Section (CCS) playoffs. It's very exciting for the boys, and I'm so happy that Henry was able to win a championship in this, his senior year. The photograph above was taken at their last home game, when the team honors the seniors and their parents.  I was thrilled that Paul was well enough to attend and am really grateful to Mark Foyer, our local sports writer, for taking this picture. Some days the things that used to be commonplace now seem miraculous.
Hello School Vacation  . . . The kids have this week from school. Unfortunately, I still have to work. I do at least have Monday off, and I'm hoping to do a bit of creating.
Hello Return to Fitness . . . It feels so good to be getting back to the gym and to running.
I hope you're looking forward to a wonderful week!  What are you saying hello to?

That picture says so much more than hello to winning the league! Oh, and in my mind you are much taller than that picture shows - or is Paul just very tall? Either way you don't look old enough to be Henry's mother.

Congratulations to Henry and the rest of the team. I have to ask, is Paul REALLY tall? In my imagination, I think of you as tall yourself but he is overshadowing all of you!

Congrats to Henry & the team! My kids only have today off. Their week off is in late March, assuming they don't lose all of it to snow days before then.

We are saying hello to cold cold mornings. It was 21 degrees this morning, but it is warming up to 43
