Kickin' It 'Round the Web Wednesday~*

Last night was Thing 3's first game as a high schooler & she was absolutely awesome~*

Right now, coach is moving them around the field to see where they fit best, so technically it wasn't a game...or I suppose you'd call it a preseason game maybe?  Anyway, our Thing 3 was in the game 90% of the time {with two brief breaks each half} & she played all her positions like a pro...sorry about the extensive # of soccer pics, proud mom moment...

Not too shabby for a girl with a broken big toe!  No worries, she had the Doc's permission to play if she felt up to it & her injured digit was securely taped & padded within her cleat {though we definitely soaked her tootsies in Epsom salts when we got home...}

The kids are back in school today {sans a few classrooms in the basement of the school that are still drying out}.  This Saturday is a big soccer jamboree fundraiser thingamabob {still have a little while before the first cross country meet for Thing 2 & then things will start getting particularly nuts 'round here}.

I was never an athlete {I was the asthmatic bookish nerd in the drama club type o'kid}-- any of you all play sports?

But its Web Surfin' Wednesday-- so here are some things you oughta check out!

  1. Here is a great interactive video of every medalist in the 100m, from the 1896 Olympics forward...{we are HUGE Usain Bolt fans, what with Thing 2 running track...}
  2. And this event made us all tear up-- there is something so noble in his refusal to give up...
  3. Here is something, two, three awwwwww
  4. As previously noted, I am a big reader...& this photo set has to be one of the most beautiful things ever...
  5. I've been thinking about rearranging furniture since stumbling upon this site
  6. I totally covet the Nautilus House {how awesome are these places?}
  7. I'm a big fan of lists of things you should read/do/see before you die {wouldn't want to miss anything!}, and here is a great one
  8. And speaking of art, I could spend hours wandering this site
  9. And here is some art drawn by nature in the sky
