Peg the Goalie……LOL…

Not much sewing on the “Happy In Quilting” front…..I have been busy working doing that thing work……

But

Last we night we went to a 21st..the young girl who works with me was having a party…and we had to dress up…

the theme was “uniforms”…

I saved all my boys sport uniforms…my eldest son Luke, played most sports, very social boy, my boy, one of his great passions was soccer…..

he was not too bad either, I can say that I am his mummy….LOL…but he represented, the school, the region,  and he also tried out for the State team,

was in the Academy, at 14 he played in Vanuatu and then when he was 16 he also went to Europe…I know I am bragging, but I was and am very proud of my boys….

So when a girl gets a chance to go to a fancy dress 21st in a uniform of course I had to go in my sons goal keeping gear (he was a goalie)…

the pants are even padded…I really do not

need any extra padding….LOL..it was a great night….

With any luck I will be able to get a bit of stitching done later, hope you do as well…

Happy Sunday…

Take Care Peg….

You don't raise heroes, you raise sons.  And if you treat them like sons, they'll turn out to be heroes, even if it's just in your own eyes.

Hey Sweet Peg! Woo! Hoo! You go, Goalie Girl! :0) I bet you had a ball at the party ... get it ... soccor .... ball ... oh never mind! My weird sense of humour! :0) And you're right, being the Mama of your special sons, you're allowed to wax lyrical about their acheivements ... you earned the occalades every bit as much as they did, I'm sure, being Mum's Taxi service, chief cheer leader, uniform washer ... in a word MUM! :0) Enjoy the rest of your weekend!! Bear Hugs! KRIS
