“You can’t always win!” That’s what my parents used to tell me when I was a little girl. Why did I try to compete with my older brother when I was bound to lose? However, with every loss, I truly believe that there is something to gain.
The USA soccer team was eliminated from the World Cup today. It was definitely a disappointment in our household, but like I said, there are positive sides to their loss. The players gained experience from playing in a jaw-clinching game. I also know that Little Man has gained tons of experience from watching soccer games these past couple of weeks.
Gloria bought Hilo his own soccer ball (the children sized one) because he always wants to play when he sees us playing soccer. The ball is durable, and surprisingly, there are no punctures yet – just excessive teeth marks! 🙂
As a matter of fact, he’s really good at being a goalie for Mommy. He can stop the ball with his foot, and he can even headbutt it! I think it’s so cute that we’ve got ourselves our very own Schnauzer soccer star.
Maui, on the other hand, likes to sit around and look pretty. Hmm, I wonder where she learned how to do that, haha. 😉
I’m pretty sure I didn’t teach her that, hehe. 😉
Isn’t Maui’s soccer portrait adorable?! Strike a pose! It was as if she wanted us to snap a photo of her sitting with Hilo’s soccer ball. I’ll consider this picture a winner!
Speaking of winning and losing, I have succumbed to Gloria’s new hobby – – building structures with Legos. At first I wasn’t too keen about the idea of Legos all over the place (I shouldn’t complain because I have paper and embellishments everywhere, haha). …but it’s really neat to see how creative one can get with blocks. Here are a couple of photos I snapped of her latest creation:
…and because Legos were allowed, Gloria caved in to my desire to visit the Winchester Mystery House. Have you ever heard of this place?! Supposedly, it’s one of the nation’s most haunted places. It’s been featured on various TV shows for all of its acclaimed supernatural activity.
When we got there, Gloria was still hesitant to take the tour of the house. I, on the other hand, was excited to explore this Victorian mansion.
No, I didn’t see, hear, or feel anything supernatural. However, many local people have shared various stories of the supernatural. I have to admit that even though I did not witness anything, it was definitely a spooky place to be. I consider myself defeated at that place. S-C-A-R-Y!
Lastly, I have picked a random winner for the Zutter baby blog hop! Come on down…
Congrats! Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your information, so I can have Zutter send out your prize.
That’s all for today. I should be out and about at the clubs shakin’ my thang with friends, but I decided not to hit up the city. I think I’m getting old because I prefer to stay at home, haha! Do I sense defeat?! Should I hang my head down in shame?!
Night out in the city (1) – Sarah (0)
Okay, okay… I won’t say anything because I am feeling the glares from some of you. 😉 In my opinion, I think I won because I don’t have to deal with lots of annoying people pushing and shoving me around at the bars/clubs.
