Let's see. What have I told you and not told you about the happenings of the last 2.7 weeks?
I think you know that Jill and the kids are living with us temporarily. You may not know that Jill has found a house. In the mean time, we have helped Jill set up her classroom, Tom and I have taken the kids shopping for their school supplies, Jill has put in several days training, school starts next Thursday, and tomorrow Jill will head up a crew to start moving into her rental house. That's all. Not much happening here, huh.
But today we took the day off to attend a 1:00 Sounders match. Between our supporter groups we came up with tickets for Jill and the kids. At 10:45 we headed for the light rail.
Our destination was Occidental Park, where we would meet up for the March to the Match.
We headed up the notorious Emerald City Supporters. Irene wasn't so sure about this, but Mom was recruited to hold an end of the banner.
At the stadium, we had our hot dogs and drinks in the shade, but at match time we took our seats in the sunny stadium. Irene was my seat mate. Tom and Isaac were "over there", an aisle away.
Mommy Jill was "way over there" at the other end of the stadium. Just look for the big hair. Two people to the right is Jake. In between is friend Tyler.
At about minute 36 Irene and I had to take a shade break, so we missed goal # 4, but it was HOT there in the north end, and we needed refreshing.
The end result was Sounders 6, Columbus Crew 2. Whoo-hoo! And then we hung out in the shade waiting for Jill to find us.
We took the train downtown, looking for new Crocs at Westlake Center, but struck out. So we hopped back on the train to come home, went right to Southcenter Mall, where we scored Crocs for Irene (purple and pink) and Isaac (Sounders green), and then on to Red Robin for dinner.
This evening, after we get the kids to bed, I'll sit down and watch the match on TV, recorded, to see the parts I missed.
And then we'll all get to bed. Tomorrow is moving day, again.
