Papa’s World – And just like that – granddaughters graduate from Elementary school!

I can see it like it was yesterday – taking them to pre-school – singing a song!

Twins – dressed alike and their little HELLO KITTY backpacks!

They are different – Taylor was the bigger – in fact, the reason they were brought into this world early!

Cassidy at 3 lbs and Taylor at almost 4 lbs.

For some reason, she was getting all the nutrients and growing – so at 32 weeks plus a day or two

the doctors decided it was time – and it also was their mother’s birthday!

So now we celebrate birthdays in threes!

First day – Taylor and Cassidy.

Cassidy is the one who calls every week to talk to her MORMOR ( mothersmother) Swedish.

While she looks short – she is of average height – Taylor is going to be tall like her MORMOR!

Cassidy does soccer while Taylor has ridden horses since she barely walked.

Today they are both alike and different.

Taylor and Cassidy

Taylor would spend all her time riding and carrying for horses.

Cassidy – searching YouTube for projects to make – she is really good at that.

And just like that – going into Middle School!

Our little ones with the HELLO KITTY backpacks –

So grown up and doing their own things.

Thanks for reading Papa’s World

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – Tonight – graduation – Tears – Thoughts

Eighteen years have passed – so many memories of the little one

PAPA & MADDY

There was a time – I would pick her up from the babysitter after work –

I would be done at 2:30 PM.

Her parents both worked –

and she would come running to me and leap-

Her arms encircling my neck as I knelt down –

” PACA” she would shout !

( that is how she said PAPA )

GOOD MORNING

There was the time –

she was in the back in her car seat –

I heard a “SOB”

and I looked in the mirror –

She made eye contact

and held up her little hand –

TEARS were streaming down her cheeks –

not making a sound !

She had twisted a hair tie around her little finger –

It had almost turned a deep blue – black !

I pulled off the road to the side

and got out – quickly – I got it off –

I rubbed her little finger –

it hurt her so bad .

” PACA – PACA – ” she kept saying.

TEARS and her nose was running –

I cleaned her up –

all the time rubbing her finger.

Graduation from Elementary school

Then – the years passed –

they had moved to the other side of Winchester –

She was almost 11 years old –

so cute – so classy –

She was the student body president !

She was going to MIDDLE SCHOOL –

She had already played soccer for SEVEN YEARS !

She joined Track –

and ran the mile –

running a 5:48 –

The high school coach wanted her on the track team !

But “SOCCER ” –

it was at the same time – her love –

Soccer won out –

she was on the Travel Team – H.S. team –

and as a Sophomore –

she tried out and made the Loudoun County RED TEAM

Traveling 60 miles – three times a week – one way – to practice !

IT HAPPENS – LOL

The time went by – track fell behind – soccer bloomed !

Six teen – sweet

She has always loved MANATEE’S – so – at six teen – for her birthday –

We took a trip to Florida – and her mother and her flew down one way.

She went to Crystal River – Springs –

and there – her dream came true-

She SWAM WITH THE MANATEE’S !

Party Saturday

Now – the DAY

has finally come -but first – AWARDS !

AWARDS ON STAGE
Maddy and Ella

Ella helped her with her awards – she earned –

last day –

schools out for her

From that little tot-to a lady

She is all grown up now –

she doesn’t remember the word “PACA”

But – I shall always remember her saying it.

I will remember the songs we sang-

The little voice from her car seat in the rear-

The hugs – the little arms around my neck-

PARTY ON – LOVE LIFE – REMEMBER WHAT YOU CAN –

Tonight – we watch her walk that final step of High School –

Tonight is the end of a time well spent –

Tonight – she will look not back –

Tonight she will look forward to a new beginning –

One – that she has already begun –

for she has a new schedule –

A new training schedule

which she already has started –

A training schedule for the UNIVERSITY OF LYNCHBUG –

Her new team – ” THE HORNETS ” –

COLLEGE SOCCER – starts now.

Papa’s World – Grand daughters – each selected as MVP for their teams.

Sisters – three years apart – one graduated this week –

Going on to play Soccer at University Of Lynchburg , Va.

The other – returning as a Junior – and made the Travel Team –

BOTH SELECTED AS MVP of THEIR TEAMS –

At the same position – MIDFIELDER – by their coaches!

MADDY MEYERS & ELLA MEYERS

Maddy will continue her play in college –

But the other story here is of Ella –

last TWO YEARS –

She suffered a broken bone in her foot

( one of her teammates came down on it )

And then – after almost six months ( growth plate was fractured )

She came down on it wrong and suffered a hair line fracture to her arch.

Maddy and Ella

They have been close –

very close – all through the years !

I remember the time that Maddy got a new bed –

Ella came to me –

And just like you see her smile here in this picture –

She looked at me and said

” I’VE GOT MADDY’S BED ” !

She was so proud to have her sisters white whicker single bed !

My own thoughts have been sort of a

WHAT IF –

Had she not broken those bones in her foot –

she lost two years of playing.

And in her first year back –

she was selected as MVP

and made the Travel Team!

Her confidence is back –

they both play the same position –

Ella is growing –

she now is a little taller than Maddy –

Has a very good skill set –

And now will play on –

She once again believes

after watching from the side lines.

They both hold their MVP plaques

Graduation Party was Saturday –

guests – players – relatives.

The training has begun –

running hills – sprints –

and Ella has joined in.

It will be a fun Fall

as both will start playing again.

Once again – both will pursue their dreams –

Maddy in college – Ella for two more years in high school.

Sherry – very proud grandma
Signing letter of Intent

Thank you for reading and following

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.
