Mother visited us this past weekend. She arrived Friday night with the intent of meeting us at the Troy – Piqua Football game. The weather really put a halt to that plan. It rained very hard. It worked well though for us to meet at our house and spend time visiting Friday evening. It was certainly better conversation then we would have had at the game – and much more comfortable.
Saturday Mother, Becky, Michelle and I watched the Troy High School Reserve team play Tecumseh. Matt didn’t get as much playing time as I would have liked with Mother in town but he played well when he was in the game. Troy won so that started the day well.
After Matt’s game, we went to Night Sky for a light lunch. The food is really good there and the location was convenient. We jumped over after Matt’s game and then went directly over to Duke Park for Michelle’s game.
Michelle’s game was great. The girls played with intensity and concentration for 70 minutes and that made the difference at the end of the game. Lauren scored midway through the second half on a left-footed drive and Mandy scored with under two minutes left to put us up 2-1. It was against the Warrior ’91 team so that’s a noteworthy accomplishment. After Michelle’s game, we went to High Marks for dinner. The food was great and the company was better. We finished the day at home visiting. Mother spent the night at her hotel and then drove back to meet Tom and Carol for his birthday in Lexington.
