We have a lot of soccer on our minds in the Pontow house. That is when we are not thinking about Irish Dance or Baseball. Jack and Meg are busy busy busy with their outdoor leagues. I really like the league we are doing this thru this year. They both have been playing soccer since they were 3 years old. Jack has been kicking a soccer ball since he started walking. Amazing to me how a year old could do that. But, then I thought of the fact that he has the genes from Chad, as well as, my grandpa Jim who came from Scotland to play soccer in Chicago. I see a real future for Jack in this sport and he absolutely loves playing it!
I guess one could say I have officially become a Soccer mom....

Well, the past few months have been a blur I have to say. But, what is great is we have the newspaper pictures to remind us of the fun we have been having. Jack's picture was in the paper for his piano recital and then Meggan's picture showed up for the parade she was in around St. Patrick's Day. And now a story has been written and published about Meggan and I related to Irish Dancing. I am quite the proud mom of my children and all they continue to accomplish and overcome in life! Happy Reading!
