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
  10. And lastly, one for the  Über-nerds out there {yes honey, I'm lookin' squarely at you}

  1. Hi there! I'm so happy to have discovered your blog with this link party.

    No sports for me either. Never did like any form of it as a child!

    Am a new follower, and I hope you'll come by and say Hi!


  2. Love the wombat and the joey. I am a sucker for mismatched animal duos! Good for your daughter. I love to see kids get involved with sports, especially girls. I did not play a single sport when I was young. Even gym class was horrific to me. Oddly, I was not a fan of school, although I did well in my classes and spent five years in university. I only truly enjoyed it once I got to third year of university.

  3. Wow, that's dedication, playing on a broken toe! I was never athletic, but I am in awe of super star atheletes like in the Olympics.

  4. Great sport pictures.

  6. I like individual sports like athletic-type activities like snowboarding, kayaking, rock climbing... But the moment I get anywhere near a ball or a field it's a disaster. Very impressive young athlete there! (and cool cloud formations!).

  7. Thanks for stopping by, you have a lovely blog.
