2014 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 6, Day 1

Post by DadofTwins »

Wow, what a day.

Meetings all morning, soccer practice this afternoon, then we painted the field and built the goals for games starting this weekend.

I honestly almost didn't get this posted.

Well, here it is. The final week of the regular season. There are a lot of folks still in the running for Wild Cards, plus everybody with a shot at the sixth Weekly Winner spot.

Good luck.
