Miss B's soccer team played their final fall game at home today. At the start of the season each team is assigned a home field, and hers got the high school's recently installed artificial turf. This seemed like a good thing — no uneven grass, no funny bounces — until we realized that unlike grass, artificial turf doesn't mind getting tromped on in the rain, of which there was an abundance today. The last game is always followed by a party, and the hosts of last spring's pool party were kind enough to host again. Grant suggested another pool party since the kids were already soaking wet, but he was overruled.
In honor of good sports and not having to make sure she gives me her uniform to wash again until next spring, I give you a September sunset over their practice field, prettier and much drier.
