Bubby collided with another soccer player a few weeks back and hyper-extended his right knee.  He seemed to recover quickly, but after a few days it started to hurt.  I took him to the orthopedic doctor who took x-rays and found a surprise.  Bubby has an 'osteochondroma', a benign bone tumor.  He's pretty sure it's not the cause of his pain and is thinking it might be his meniscus, but is ordering an MRI just to be sure.  Until then, he told him to 'play at own risk'.  Bubby continues to play...and I continue to hold my breath.

Stevie is off to a great start in her soccer season.  She earned a spot as starting striker as a freshman.  (just like her mom)  They played tough against Laconia but came away with a tie.  These pictures of her make me laugh because her eyes are closed in all of them.  Just think how much better she would be if they were OPEN! ;)

Below is a copy of the article from Stevie's first game where she scored 2 of the 6 goals.
They lost their last game 5-2 and Stevie scored one of the goals bringing her to three goals on the season.

Gilford is off to a GREAT start.  Today they beat a tough opponent, Prospect Mountain, 2-1 in overtime.  Unfortunately Bubby hurt his quad halfway through the second half and had to sit the rest of the game.  He played hard and had some great shots on goal, but didn't score this time.  
(he's number 24)
