Soccer Season Wrap-Up

A.J.'s soccer season came to an end in disappointing fashion as his high school team was upset in the first round of the regional tournament.  Still, it was a very good year for A.J., who finished with 19 goals and 18 assists in 22 games and was named to the All-District and All-Region Teams.  Here are some shots from the season, taken by one of the soccer dads who is a very talented photographer:

A.J. found his way into all four of the pictures in this spread from our local paper.

We are very proud of this young man, not just because he is great at playing soccer, but because of the way he represents his school and his family as a player.

After a very disappointing loss in the regional tournament in a game that came down to a penalty kick shootout, the two teams gathered in a show of sportsmanship at midfield.

Congratulations to A.J. on another great season!

Family Photo Shoot 2018

We booked our favorite photographer, Moments Captured by Hannah, for our annual Fall Break family photo shoot, but Fall did not arrive.  It was 85 degrees for our "Fall" photo shoot.  Anyway, we went to the historic Ashland Henry Clay Estate in Lexington for this year's photos, and everyone was excited as always to get their picture took.  

Essie was our color coordinator this year and went with the orange and navy scheme.

Happy Birthday, Dad!

We celebrated Matt's birthday over the weekend. He wanted an Ale-8-1 cake and since I (Amy) am not the cake boss of this family, I cheated just a bit by using Ale-8 bottle caps as decorations.

Matt's big gift was tickets to the UK-Mississippi State football game.
The weather called for rain all day and Mississippi State was ranked 14th in the nation but Matt and the girls decided to carry-on and in the end, the game was AMAZING!

A little rainy, but ready to roll

Here come the Cats!

Touchdown, Benny Snell!

And there's another touchdown for Benny!

The stadium was rocking!

Big win!
