Well, we have spent a lot of time outdoors over the holidays watching Hunter's soccer team play in two different tournaments one in Lake Charles and one in Covington (near New Orleans) and it's been kind of cold, but nothing even comes close to the game we went to tonight at his high school! We sat outside for two hours in 29 degree weather!! That might not seem cold to some of you, but this is Louisiana, y'all- we aren't used to this! I'm not sure how Hunter played in this, but they won their first district game 4-0. They ended up in the semi-finals in the other two tournaments only to lose, but they included the toughest teams in the state. Between the cold and and rain, this hasn't been a great season to watch or play in so far, but hopefully our weather will improve. We felt like we were packing to go on a camping trip when we were getting ready to go to the game. We had a thermos of hot chocolate, a portable outdoor heater, a sleeping bag, two blankets, stadium seats and layers and layers of clothes! It's all worth it :)

love the pics. And 29 degrees is freezing for ANYONE! It may get that cold here often, but I certainly don't spend time sitting outside watching a sporting event! ;) You're a trooper.
