UK Hoops

Some generous clients of mine gave us tickets to a UK women's basketball game.  
Essie was, unfortunately, sick so it was just a mommy/Chloe date. 

 Great seats

Soccer Season Wrap-Up

A.J.'s Freshman season of high school soccer is now in the books.  His team lost in the Regional Final last night, 2-1.  A.J. scored the only goal for the Colts in the loss, his 13th on the year.  He finished the season second on the team in goals scored (13) and assists (6), including 4 goals and 2 assists in the Regional Tournament, where he was named to the All-Tournament Team.

Perhaps the most exciting game of the year was a 1-0 victory in the District Championship game, where A.J. scored the game's only goal with less than 9 minutes to play to win his school's first district title since 2008.  A.J. even made the paper:

Mid-Season Soccer Update

AJ is coming down the homestretch of his first season of varsity high school soccer, and the team is really coming together nicely.  They are currently 9-3-1 and in the midst of a 6-match win streak that included a 3-0 win over district opponent Mercer County that had beaten them 11 times in a row.  Here are some photos taken by a parent of one of A.J.'s teammates:
