Here We are Again...

Soccer. Soccer. Soccer.
Just another date in Section 8.

On the Pitch Again...

The Shamrocks beat IOHS 11-0 today.  Finn, playing right-back, not only contributed to the shut out,but managed to sneak in a goal and 2 assists from the back line. Nice little performance from our favorite defender.

A hard foughtn and well-earned  2-1 victory over 2016 1A Sectional champion, Francis Parker of Chicago, boosted the Shamrocks confidence even more! On a personal note I love seeing Finn in his green uniform; it suits him in every way!

The varsity shamrocks opened the season with an 8-0 win over Elmwood Park. With this dominating performance he Shamrocks have proven very early they are a force to be reckoned with. I predict a very exciting season for this hardworking crew!

Fire Delights...

Finn spent game night in a different section with his Shamrock squad, but Leif and I hunkered down with out best girl in Section 8 for a little Chicago soccer fun.  We gave her a lot of Chicago flavor on the eve of her departure for school. It was a fun night, but we are sure going to miss her! I am already counting the days until Thanksgiving! 

Our Temple Owl Flies Home....

Our favorite Temple owl is getting ready to leave our cozy nest and make her way back to Philly to start her JUNIOR year.  Hard to believe she is already on the back half of her college years. Keep making us proud, girl!

Shamrock Captain...

Our Finn is ready to take on a challenging year of Shamrock soccer. This team has come so far that they are expected to crush some school records this season. After putting in three years of time, effort,  and energy, Finn and two of his fellow (and well-deserving) seniors were named varsity captains. I know this is an honor Finn takes seriously and we could not be more proud of 
our favorite Shamrock!

College Girls...

Sunday dinner at Team Tillotson's house was a little bittersweet. Our gorgeous Gracie-girl is making the big move to college next week. That means two of our brood will be out on their own. It is incredible how fast time goes by, but I know these two are closer than family! I love everything about these milestones. Go get 'em Grace!

Bud Billikin 2017


We took our annual stroll trough Bronzeville as part of the UCM contingent in the Bud Billiken Parade. More than 1 million people watch the parade along the 2 mile route and can get fun treats in Washington Park. It is always one of my favorite days of the year.

Temple Besties...

This week we had a the chance to host one of Emma's Temple besties for a little Chicago fun! It was such a treat to show her friend the best parts of Chicago. We had dinner at Publican and lunch at Strings. They dynamic duo had a ball a Lalapalooza, rode a water taxi, checked out Millennium Park, ate some deep dish pizza, and spent an afternoon in Wicker Park.  I loved seeing them together and it makes me happy to know my best girl has such a wonderful friend in her life at school!
