OTTERS LACROSSE & DOGS ...OH MY!
March 9th - 12th
I had a nice 30 minute show of one of the otters that lives in our lake playing right off the shoreline. We have decoy ducks that protect the pipes that pumps water for our sprinkler system. This otter I think wanted to play with them. He/She swam around up and down showing off around them. Very entertaining!
Lacrosse...of coarse hard to go a weekend without some pictures....
I only saw half of. Didn't get many pictures at all it went too fast! The first half of the game was ok. They seemed to be doing well maybe up by a goal or two, but they seemed a little dazed and confused!
Apparently after I left the second half of the game was outstanding. The girls needed a good talkin' too and they were back on their game...scored 8 goals quickly. Coach Scott told them to pass 4 times before they even shot the ball since they were doing so well. NICE!
He was on B team this week and needless to say the ball wasn't being caught a lot by the players on the field or passed well either. Sometimes it was down right comical.
On the other hand this gave Isaac a TON of play time. He had 22 shots on goal he saved 18! He was on FIRE! The other team parents on the sidelines were even commenting on his skills and one lady even yelled out "GOALIE YOUR A BEAST". I didn't have my 'Goalie Mom' shirt on this week, but I was super proud and lovin' every minute of watching him. They lost the game by 2 goals (think we only had 5 shots on goal from our boys), but Isaac still had a blast! Lots of compliments all around from other coaches and players.
Chloe and Scott made it to the last half of Isaac's game...Chloe taking a lunch break.
Beyond the white fence across the street from us is a house that has a few dogs. In years past the dogs have crawled under the fence and come over to play. Chloe (our animal lover) takes advantage of these pooches and really loves on them. A few years ago 2 dogs would come over often 'Chip and Pie' Chloe would give them names. We hadn't seen either of them in quite some time. Chloe figured Chip had been long gone. A couple nights ago a new dog showed up 'Spike' Chloe was in love! She couldn't get enough of this little guy and was super upset when he had to go home. Well 2 days later here comes Spike and CHIP! Chloe was over the moon happy to play with them. The owners try to block the bottom of the fence so not sure how often we'll get to see these cutie pies, but Chloe has a great time while they are here!
