What a Weekend!!

 We had a very full, fun weekend.  Starting Thursday, Blake had a soccer game an hour and a half away.  His league is a lot bigger than I knew and Dave and I will have to divide and conquer to get him to all his games and still get our church and farm responsibilities done.  It is going to be a hairy two months.  
He enjoys playing goal keeper.  The game I watched he did pretty good, not so good the game Dave watched.  But his teammates cheer him on and it is only the beginning of the season.  I have already really enjoyed traveling with him and talking to him one on one.

Friday Cora had her home rugby tournament.  I spent most of the day up watching her.  Then back to decorate the church for New Beginnings and then quickly got changed and off to dinner with Dave.  His boss had invited a few to dinner, as a thank you for the extra hours and some weekends they have spent working lately as they do this big change over.  Dave is over some of them so we were invited as well.  It was a wonderful steak dinner at a really neat little place.  There were only 10 there, so a nice little group.
Saturday we were up early to get Blake to his badminton tournament.

Blake and his partner placed first in mixed doubles.  They got to pick a prize at the end.  Of course everyone got a prize, but he had a great time.

I biped over to watch Cora's first game Saturday.  They did very well.  Beating a team the our high school has not beaten in over a decade.

She loves the scrums and gets many compliments from her coach as how she is always the first there.

It was a hot day and she got sunburned.

After her game we went to watch the last of Blake's and then she went back to the school for her last game and Blake and I went home.  Another super fast change and we were off to a wedding.  Cora's last game was the same time as the family dinner, so she was not able to make it.  We had walked her through how to get there that morning.  We were both a little nervous, but she drove straight there with no problems. Sent me this picture just before she left. 

I thought she had won.  Shows how much I know about rugby.  They got second.  Lost by one try, to a team that won provincials last year.  So still pretty impressive if you ask me.  She was laughing at me because I told all around us that she had won.  She explained that it was sliver and a bowl, not a gold cup.  I had no idea,  isn't the super bowl silver????  Anyways....she made it to the church for the reception. After the family dinner, we quickly cleaned tables and got ready for the reception.  Our job was to keep ice cream in bowls and all the toppings filled.  Dave did an awesome job scooping ice cream.  Cora, Blake and I bustled around getting things filled, with the help of two others from their ward. The next day we had Toone's over for Sunday dinner and Joe asked what all our jobs had been.  I said, "Yes, Leah what was your job yesterday?"  We had no idea where she was most of the evening.  She told us her job was making lots of friends.  Yea, that's my Leah!!  When not 'making friends' she was teaching Blake the jive in the small kitchen.  Also very helpful. (insert sarcastic eye roll)  But she did help us clean up the wedding and un-decorate.  It was a beautiful wedding and the newlyweds are the sweetest couple ever.

These girls never cease to have fun together.

Cora was feeling particularly lovely with rugby hair and sunburned arms.  She is very happy about all these pictures.  (Again with the sarcasm)

Sunday we all got back together for dinner.  We celebrated a belated Cinco De Mayo with tacos and then leftover fruit and ice cream from the wedding. During all this weekend and running around, Cora was trying to finish a homework assignment from her Social 30 class.  The teacher had put Cora in a 'group' all by herself, which is a long story, and then upped the project due date by a week.  She had to do a tri-fold board, a minute to win it game, and a power point presentation on the CIA and KGB.  We were typing, printing, cutting, and taping very late every night. But we made it through and had a wonderful weekend.  Now to get New Beginnings over with tonight.  I really should start writing my talk for that.....:/
