Home Sweet Home

We have been gone so much lately to soccer tournaments that home is sounding pretty good right now! We've been to Orange Beach, Alabama, (It was rainy and cold- well one of the days wasn't bad) Baton Rouge, New Iberia, and this weekend will be Alexandria! We still have New Orleans, Shreveport and Monroe left. It's crazy, but this will probably be the last year with Hunter going off to BYU and Savannah deciding to just play in school so is guess we should enjoy it 'cause I know we'll miss it when they're gone :( I'll post some pics from soccer when I get around to it. Some great news. . . .Bree just got accepted to BYU so we will now have TWO Stewarts running around that campus! We are soooo proud of her and all her efforts to get there. She is currently working in a salon and will start taking care of a couple teenagers (Yea!- a steady income!) and will start classes in the summer. She'll be a busy girl!

What a weekend!

Hunter's high school soccer team made it all the way to the state final championship game and it was held in Shreveport, LA last Saturday night. Hunter and the team left on Friday morning after a big send off from the school with everyone cheering and the band playing. They had practice once they got there and saw the Division 3 final game that night in the HUGE stadium that they would play in the next night. They hung out together as a team the next day and watched motivational movies. They played the #1 ranked team in the state which is also #3 ranked in the nation- Hunter's team was ranked #6 and not expected to make it this far. They played a GREAT, hard-fought game and were tied 1-1 up until the last 2 minutes of the game. A controversial call made by the ref gave the other team a free kick and they scored and won- BOO! It was a memory that I'm sure Hunter will never forget and made for an exciting Senior year in soccer!
