Papa’s World – She will turn 18 this summer – it seems like yesterday she was Tiny – Ella College – Randolph College Va.

Ella – our second oldest granddaughter – enrolling in Randolph College in Lynchburg Va.

We called her “TINY” as she was growing up –

Her father came up with that nickname –

Today she stands 5′ 8 1/2 ” –

Our little girl is all grown up!

Along with her entrance into the four year program – she will also play college soccer – being recruited – she had two schools to select from – and it just so happens to be cross town from the University of Lynchburg – where her sister starts on the soccer team there – and yes they will compete against one another!
Ella with her mother Debby – all three granddaughters are as tall or taller than their mother. Debby’s mother – Sherry – is 5′ 9″ – so they are most likely inheriting the Swedish genes from her.
It is a beautiful campus – nestled in the foothills surrounding Lynchburg.
The soccer field a easy walk from the dorms.
Ella with her father Mike.

She endured two injuries during her Middle school and H.S.

Both were broken bones in her feet.

One she was stepped on with a cleat

and the other she just landed wrong on it.

She lost two seasons of playing soccer

but when she did – was recruited by two different colleges.

Today she walks the path to her future!

Due to the Pandemic – her H.S. soccer season was moved from the fall to the spring.

She is about to begin playing –

Her travel soccer was played although the number of games reduced.

She competed and will move onto the next level in the Fall.

Ella and Sarah – sisters.

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 – It came to a end – but what a ride !

Let the weekend begin – and a new beginning

Tuesday – we did not have to travel far – just 14 miles up the road.

The regional semi – final –

for James Wood girls soccer –

was on the home field of Loudoun County High School.

And – they had won the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP last year – 2018 !

This year their record was better – they were undefeated !

James Wood -Maddy 5th. from left in white – Ella – 6th. from right in white.

It was exciting for us – in our back yard so to speak –

and Ella was brought up from the J.V. team .

A lot of fans – family – traveled the 60 miles to cheer them on.

It was a hard fought game – behind 1 to 0 –

and Loudoun County scored just before half time.

Maddy number 9 – last game as a senior

That score stayed the same

Until the 9:00 minute mark

When the second goal was scored

off a deflection from our own player into the goal.

The final would be Loudoun County 2 — James Wood 0.

Most likely – Loudoun County may repeat as State Champions !

Maddy and Ella

The baton has been passed – Maddy hands it off to Ella –

who has two years left –

and she led the J.V. ‘s –

scoring goals – and assists

it is going to be exciting watching her the next two years !

The SEVEN seniors and their coaches
SEVEN SENIORS One last GROUP HUG – the season is over
Their Idols – the little ones so look up to them
I think Taylor – to the far right – is going to be taller than all of them !
Mother – daughters and father

Bitter sweet –

as Maddy moves on to college and soccer at University Of Lynchburg Va.

Ella – had tryouts for the Winchester United Travel Team Yesterday !

Aunt Tammy and Maddy

Now – it is graduation in less than two weeks –

and preparing for college.

Another soccer season travel begins this Fall with Ella –

and life goes on.

The end of the game

This was a close nit group –

and one final group hug at the end –

some come back –

SEVEN leave for a new life.

All to college –

two will play on –

records were set for the High School .

CLASS – in Victory or Defeat

Before each game –

and after each game –

they come and go the same way.

Led by their Captains –

a walk onto the field

and a walk off the field.

A Class act – I hope it is carried on through the years !

For both girls – Maddy to college – Ella – to travel team

The END and the BEGINNING for both girls –

IT CAME TO A END – BUT WHAT A RIDE –

and it CONTINUES

The journey for the both of them –

Going to be a fun time in our lives.

Hope you enjoyed – stay tuned as the next chapter begins.
