We spent a normal weekend — well at least for us. We went to Clear Lake, Texas for a upper level competition soccer tournament. Our girls are trying to make the jump from Division II to Super 2. We have won two State Championships in D2 and it was time to go to the next level. To do that we have been playing tournaments this spring to play a higher level of competition. They played in Austin while I was in Dallas recuperating. This weekend was the 2nd of four that we will play. We improved and even won one game. You can really see the girls learning to play at the higher speed and with more aggressive competition. See the photos that I’ve attached of Lauren getting her body on a girl trying to take a shot. The girl was knocked to the ground and took some time getting up. Pretty normal at this level.
I continue to do very well. Labs look great. Exercising daily. Even did 30 minutes a night on the treadmill at the hotel. At home I’m on my mountain bike. I really like that for getting a good workout. Plus it helps with stemming the potential loss of bone density due to my medication.
Next weekend we go to spend the night with Keith and Kate and their kids. Keith, Kate, Sheila and I are going to a dinner where Everson Walls is speaking about his kidney donation to Ron Springs. It will be fun to have our two families together.
We have been very blessed and we continue to appreciate your prayers and thoughts. I go back to the Dallas Transplant institute on April 1st, but expect no surprises.
