State Soccer Champs and ScrapHappy is Green


After an exciting volley of back and forth goals last night, West Shore won its first EVER state championship soccer game in a second sudden death overtime.  Wow!  The moment the last goal went in the other team sunk to the ground in abject horror.  Their fans fought off tears while ours jumped up and shouted in shocked surprise.  We don't have a football or baseball team, kids don't apply to our admission lottery to play sports, they come for the academics.  So to compete for our first ever state championship game in any sport was SO exciting.  Most of us were thrilled to just make it to the final game, to actually win was amazing.
It is a busy day today.  I should really make a trip up north to support our science fair kids, but I'm also supposed to run a girl scout cookie booth, host a lego end of the year party and get Anna all set for a slumber party.  I will make some effort to sew a bit, but tomorrow is looking a bit more promising for ScrapHappiness.  How about you?  Any green goodness to share?

Wow State chaps. My boys both play soccer indoor winter and outdoor spring. One team has made a play off round this winter but no were near Provincial or State level. Good for them. We are now just hoping the older boy has enough players for a team in outdoor spring soccer.
