Papa’s World – she picked her choice from two – Ella is playing College Soccer!

Ella – back when I called her ‘TINY” – a nickname her father to this day still calls her!

When she was small – she would follow me around –

when there was company she was not sure about –

she would hold my pant leg or climb up into my lap.

OH – TO HAVE THOSE DAYS ONCE AGAIN!

She has the kindest heart – always doing things you ask of her with no complaint.

Our only grand son – Bode – adores her – hanging onto her as she did to me.

She has had a trying past four or five years –

Twice braking a bone in her feet

so that she was in casts and crutches so she could not play soccer.

Missing valuable time – but when she did

she proved she belonged out there!

She caught the coaches eyes when she played – and when healthy – she was voted MVP of her JV team – alongside of her sister – who was voted MVP of her varsity team!

Today – she has sprouted up – four inches taller than her big sister

who is in her second year of college soccer at University of Lynchburg.

Ella and Maddy – loved these two little ones.

With all the adversity of her broken bones in her feet

and this past year – her senior year – because of the Pandemic

her soccer season was postponed to be played in the Spring

if they can!

The whole World has changed – but for Ella – she had choices.

Two of them – where to go to college and which coach to play for!

Not a easy choice for a 17 year old!

Taking classes on line – working her job and not playing H.S. soccer

although she did play travel team this past fall.

Ella – when she is able to play – shows great speed and control

Those two teams and coaches recruited her

attending her games when she played

It would be a hard choice to make!

Sisters – Ella will be attending Randolph College – playing against Maddy at the University of Lynchburg with youngest sister Sarah – only 14 years old!

She now is almost 5′ 9″ tall – TINY has grown up!

Papa’s World – Last tournament – travel soccer

She is quiet – except when she smiles – laughs –

caring – always thoughtful – kind –

little ones love her –

they can tell right away.

Ella – our second oldest grand daughter

Ella number 10 on the move soccer her passion

Along with her older sister – she loves soccer.

Maddy plays for University of Lynchburg – in Va. she is a sopomore.

Ella is a senior in James Wood H.S.

But also played for Blue Ridge United Soccer in Winchester Va.

For the last four years – she has experienced broken bones in her feet.

Slowing her down – but determined to come back and play once again.

Ella is tall – almost 5′ 9″

She has made up for lost time –

almost half her years of playing went away with the broken bones.

She never quit – attending games on crutches.

She still has her H.S. senior year to play – if they can – in the Spring!

Now the good news !

She has TWO OFFERS to attend Universities and a spot on each team!

She is excited – but has choices to make.

F.A.I.L. this is Ella!

She will make some coach a diamond in the rough.

Sprinting ahead to the goal with the ball

Determined – athletic – and some day will play against her older sister!

Papa’s World – Grand ma’s day out with Daughter and Grand Daughters!

Maddy 20 Ella 17 Sherry ?? Sarah 14

Sherry – who stands 5′ 9″ with our three oldest grand daughters!

Now – Maddy is 5 ‘ 6 ” Ella is pretty close to Sherry and Sarah is 5’ 6 or 7″

Sarah has started to get taller like Ella did – and I think will be taller than Sherry!

Plus – one of the twins – Taylor – well she is 10 and comes up to just under Sherry’s chin!

Must be the SWEDISH heritage coming out!

Debby – our oldest daughter – and her three girls

They all went into town to get their ears pierced again!

All except Debby!

Every time she is with them – laughter prevails!

She showed them how when you put our car on cruise control

The radar activates – and the car will almost steer itself!

She took her hands off and it went around two slight bends in the road

They were amazed and then all burst out laughing

as a message came across the screen in the car

“PUT YOUR HANDS BACK ON THE STEERING WHEEL”!

About to get their ears pierced!

A trip with grandma – “ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS GRANDMA – IS YOU !” says Sarah!

Well maybe a few other things! LOL

Our plan is to spend three days with them – and then head back to Tammy’s

as they have school and jobs.

Then we will all spend Christmas day together at Tammy’s

at least that is the plan now and could change during these trying times.

Ella and Maddy – Ella may be playing soccer against her next year in college! She has to select between two colleges.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Grandma and Grand Daughters – LIFE IS GOOD!

AT OLD TOWN – WINCHESTER VA.

Papa’s World – Letter of Intent – going to college

Sherry – Maddy – and Papa . 2019 – April

The years went by so quickly – fourteen to be exact. When she was four – she started playing soccer. It was at that time – the ball seemed to be almost as big as she was !

Our Grand daughter – Madison ( Maddy ) last week signed her letter of intent to play college soccer at the University Of Lynchburg in central Va.

We took the 60 mile journey to Winchester Va. to James Wood H.S. where she is in her last year – for a celebration by the school – and the other part of this story is that her friend and playmate for the last fourteen years – ” Katie P ” also signed her letter of intent to play at the University DeSales in Pa. !

They both had played as four year old’s all the way through H.S. including travel teams in Winchester and the last three years traveling 65 miles one way – three times a week for practice with the Loudoun County Red team.

Maddy has had this goal in mind for a very long time and with all this she still has maintained a 4 . 10 GPA ! Katie also has done the same.

Her college team is going to be a three hour drive for us – which in my mind is ” ROAD TRIP ” something we both enjoy.

Very proud of the young lady she has become – from being the smallest on the field to a strong midfielder who has become defined by her coaches as the ” FULL PACKAGE ” , everything comes through her on the field.

And as you can see – she has grown into the part – taking after my wife who with Swedish heritage – is 5 ‘ 9″-

Maddy certainly has those genes. Another day in PAPA’S WORLD – living healthy and life to the plus !
