Riley is back to playing soccer again this season. He loved baseball in the spring, but didn't want to give up soccer. That was fine with us, I don't want to force him to choose a sport at age 7. He is back with the same coach that we have had the last 2 years and love how much Riley is learning.
Alot of the same players are back, and it is good to be with our friends again. We did lose some of our leaders of the team. That just means that Riley is going to have to step up his game and get aggressive. Our first game, Riley looked good, but not much offense.
But the second game of the season, we won 2-0 and Riley scored one of those goals. YEA! Although if you ask Riley he will just say, that is because no one was in front of me, I had to score. That is called skills son!
After lunch, the men took over child duty and the women headed into town to do a little shopping. Jenn and I managed to both pick out matching shirts. Don't worry, we are not planning to wear them at the same time. We headed back to the house for a quick dinner and to get dressed and ready for rodeo that night.
We sat in the Isom's box seats and although it had rained alot the day before and threatened to pour several times that night we really enjoyed ourselves.

The best part for Riley was the calf scramble. Again I had no idea what to expect. But all the kids head out to the center of the arena and then they let 3 calves loose. The point is to grab the tag off of each calf. Riley actually got close to one, but wasn't the lucky one.
But he sure thought he was big stuff.
After the rodeo we headed back to the house to enjoy dessert of brownies & ice cream. Then we headed home for the night. The entire Isom family was staying at the house, so we decided to make it easier on all by just driving home Saturday night. It was a late night, but we all had such a good time. Hopefully I see more Pioneer reunion weekends in our future. Thanks again to Chuck & Jenn, Mr. & Mrs. Isom for inviting us and being such great hosts.
