Today is MT’s 14th birthday. Hipp, hipp, hurray!
Love watching you grow, learn and evolve kiddo, I’m proud of you and so thankful for our little family!
Today we celebrated with football matches and foam party; he got to spend his day doing what he loves and spending time with good friends – and I got to tag along trying to keep my distance so not to embarrass him too much. Ha.
Such a good, long day. Here is how it went:
Every good day starts with a little Drum Pad playing. And a little bit of time to scroll the social media.
Every good day starts with coffee, today I ate breakfast in the car while waiting for the football match to start.
I’m so glad I got to see this match. The boys worked so hard and played really well together. They won 3-2 over Ham-Kam* G14 which made it even more memorable. (* a Norwegian top notch sports club)
I even got to take a portrait photo of him; that doesn’t happen often these days.
I went home for a little while in-between the two matches, MT stayed with his football mates. I was a little late back again and didn’t see all of the second match, but it did not go as well as their first. A little pep talk in the intermission:
I went for a little walk.
MT and the boys ended up loosing to the other team 2-3. MT got his first yellow penalty card and spent 5 minutes on the bench; he was not too happy about that. Here are two photos from the second half of the match:
Then we went on to a start up gathering for church confirmants in our area. I am at work tonight and MT is going to attend Confirmant classes this coming year, so he was invited. He’s growing up for sure! He wasn’t too glad to have me there, so I promised to stay out of his way as long as he behaved well – and I think it didn’t matter so much once we were there and he was one of the 235 teenagers in the house.
I was one of the crew members, here I’m outside with a colleague checking the area.
We went to fetch some coffee for a few of the crew, once back we found the foam party had started. Lots of foam all over, laughter and high music. A bit too much for me, but perfect for most teenagers. They had lots of fun and I think they will remember this for a long time; and come summer they will meet again at Confirmant Camp. I guess they’ll also will remember the cold water, the wet clothes and how nice it felt to change into something dry before they went back home for some much needed rest and sleep.
The aftermath, so much foamy mess.
We got home around midnight. So, so tired.
I’m so glad I decided to join this project of capturing a week in photos and words. Read much more about this Week in the Life project on Ali Edwards site. And see how her Saturday went.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope your day is good!
