Soon – she will turn 21 – where oh where has the time gone?
I remember her little hands and fingers – locking her arms around my neck.
Picking her up from the babysitter and singing Ole McDonald Had A Farm!
Her first song she hummed to was Christopher Cross “SAILING”!
Now – she is a Junior at University of Lynchburg lady soccer team Hornets!
Starting at left front attacker – moving to right front in 2nd half and listed as midfielder in the program.
Ranked at number 22 in the top 25 in the nation in Division three soccer national polls.
We all came together to watch both Maddy and Ella play one another ( first time ever)
Ella held her own – as a freshmen –
playing almost all minutes in the entire games this season.
She lost 2 – 0 to Lynchburg –
who scored late into the second half –
the bench was the difference.
We had twelve of us – both families and all six grand kids in a air bnb –
just a few minutes from each of their dorm rooms and campus.
We stayed four nights – watched two soccer games – had dinner both in and out –
and celebrated Maddy’s mother birthday.
While she is extremely busy – she carries a almost 4.0 in Enviomental Engineering –
She spent time with us on three different occasions.
With classes and soccer practice – that time was hard to accomplish.
As you can see the boys are outnumbered by the girls –
We have eight ladies and four men.
All in all – MADDY got to spend precious time with us.
And we got to tour her new dorm house – three bedrooms – two bath and kitchen on campus.
Five ladies share it.
