A few soccer shots

I am an avaerage photographer, and a downright lousy soccer picture taking photographer!!! So I love when we go to a tournament and the Hot Shot People are there! They love me also, because I buy all the pics of my boys!!! Here are a few shots from this season, mine and the Hot Shots. The season for both of our teams is going well and we are having a BLAST!!

Settle Down!

What do you get when you have one short tempered coach, one "what me!?!" kind of player and one referee all in the same family....... Well this picture was staged, but so that we never have this scene actually happen Joseph is not ref'ing any of Anthony's games!! Joseph is working his first season as a licensed referee for CYSA and earning alittle spending money. He is enjoying it and doing a good job, he sometimes plays his game and then goes onto ref 2-3 more games!

What's in a name?

So all of us have names, nicknames, email addresses, blog names, etc. I personally am fascinated and interested in knowing where these names originated. Leave me a comment and tell where your unique "name" comes from. I will start....My Email address is: Berrygirl327. The 327 is my birth month and date. The Berrygirl is from my love of strawberries, I have been collecting strawberry items (for my kitchen ) for YEARS!!! At one time most of my house was decorated with strawberries because my collection was huge!!!!. About a year ago I redecorated and now just the kitchen is decorated in strawberries. The Lollipop Cropper nickname comes from my group of scrapbooking friends being from Lollipop Lane Preschool (one of my many beloved places of employment!) My Blog Name: Do I really have time for this? Well this one is self- explanitory!! I am super self enflicted BUSY all the time, have a hard time saying no, and consider the clock my biggest enemy! I have forced myself to blog, to carve out a little sit down and relax time :o)

And we're off!!.........

It is Sunday night at 7:40 p.m., as I sit in a near stuper writing this. Opening Weekend for soccer is over. Let's see this weekend between the four of us we played 2 games, won 2 games, coached 2 games, referee'd 3 games, worked 6 hours in the snack bar, watched and cheered at many other games in between it all, and the kicker...Anthony's team had the weekend off! Next weekend brings 6 games, 4 different fields, and our church festival! Once again, no photos to post, dinner, laundry, housework, grocery shopping keeps getting in the way of all the fun stuff I want to do!! Hope to upload and post during the week.

The excitemnet is building!!!

Okay so I am a HUGE Dancing with the Stars fan, as many of you know I am not a huge fan of TV watching, I don't really have much time for it or interest in it, unless it is really late at night when I finally convince myself to go to bed, I will change the channel from my hubby's quality viewing choice, cage fighting....(he really is a nice guy, just has bad TV judgement). So for me to love a show enough to dedicate several nights a week to actually sitting on the couch and watching while shushing all my guys so i don't miss a thing, is a really big deal!!

All Green Things Must Come To An End.....

Wow! What a fabulous holiday weekend I had! First of all my boys both had a great first week at school! On Friday I went to see Mama Mia with my gals the Lollipop Croppers, we had dinner before the movie and ice cream after. Karen and I headed to the Green Tangerine on Saturday at 5:30 a.m. :o) returned home on Monday at 7:00 p.m. (yes we stayed one day longer than planned) crazy I know!!! We scrapped for a total of 30 hours... I completed 49 pages and Karen completed 41 pages!! We had such a great time with the store staff, our bloggin friends, and all the friendly scrappers in Rocklin. Especially Raimi and Eve our "old buddies" . I have to say I couldn't have had such an enjoyable weekend without my great husband, he held down the fort at home, I walked up to a manicured yard, walked into a clean house, and sat down to a steak dinner! Lucky, I know. This saturday is Opening Day of Soccer Season so I will be completely consummed with the boys schedules until the end of November. I love to scrap, but I really LOVE to be at the soccer field with my three guys. I'll keep you all posted as to how thier teams are doing and I hope to post some layouts from my weekend soon.
