US Youth Soccer Regional Finalists!!

We finally have some good soccer photos! Rich got a new camera (We call it his new girlfriend since he's been spending so much time with her- Her name is Nicki) for Father's Day/his Birthday and we took it to South Carolina for the regionals. Hunter's team won for the state of Louisiana, so they went to compete in one of four regional tournaments in the United States. They were really just hoping to win ONE of their games and they beat Oklahoma, tied Florida, and beat South Carolina which put them in first for their bracket. Then they beat South Carolina (wild card) in the Semi Finals and advanced to play North Carolina in the finals. Unfortunately, they lost 2-1, but it was very close. This puts them in the top eight teams in the United States. We really had a great time with all the soccer families and seeing a part of the country we've never been to before. South Carolina is beautiful!! We are proud of Hunter and his committment to his team.

This was the opening ceremonies at the Bi-Lo Center in Greenville. All the teams brought gifts to exchange and the Mardi Gras beads were flying! :)

Wow! That camera was worth it! The pictures look great!!! Hunter looks like Michael Jordan! (I know, wrong sport, but he still looks like he is flying!)
