Papa’s World – Loudoun United coming !!!!

We have been following soccer for I guess 14 years –

Maddy was four when she started to play – then Ella !

Now – we will follow Maddy in college –

and continue to follow Ella in travel and H.S. soccer –

But – on 8 -9-19 – something new is about to happen !

And since I write this a week ahead of time –

last night –

it happened!

GOOD MORNING

We will have a professional soccer team about six miles away !

LOUDOUN UNITED SOCCER TEAM –

A farm team of D.C. United in Washington D.C.

Where players are developed – much as minor league baseball !

Site of new soccer field

Almost across from the Leesburg airport –

and part a huge soccer complex already there –

( where our grand daughter Maddy practiced for three years )

sits a complex of 12 to 16 soccer fields

And is part of Loudoun County !

Site work

It also contains a complex of base ball diamonds –

and both grass and turf fields.

Major tournaments both in baseball – softball

and soccer are played here

and is a hot bed for recruitment for soccer for college.

Beginning to take shape

A new four lane road with a traffic signal was built –

along with additional parking for over 700 cars –

along with lots already there for 700 cars.

More parking is in the plans !

In addition to the new stadium –

four more fields are being built

as part of the deal for the land with the county –

and two turf fields also will be built –

along with a state of the art training facility.

One of the turf fields will be for the pro team only

while the other fields will be for the County park.

Work progressing

We have known about this for some time –

as it has been in the news –

and Washington D.C. United –

just opened their new stadium –

which sits about a quarter mile from Nat’s Park

In the last two months !

So – big time Soccer is now here !

BLEACHERS

Being so close – instead of going into D.C. to Audi Field

we can jump in the car and be in the lot in 15 minutes –

of course traffic may become a problem and it will take longer

but still – to have this is just awesome !

Becoming a new fixture

Although Maddy will no longer be coming here for games and practice

There may be a chance that Ella’s travel team may play here.

Almost done

Our hope is to attend games –

and see some future players play in the big time.

Field is ready

This is a beautiful area –

and as the plan moves forward with the additional complex

It is a gold star for the County !

August 9 th. Professional Soccer came to Loudoun County !

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – if you could do one thing – what would Cher do ?

GOOD MORNING

Most of you know or heard the song –

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER

Well – the other day – as I was searching my phone –

I came across some pictures –

and as the saying goes –

A picture is worth a thousand words !

Cassidy and Taylor
our twin grand daughters

When their parents sold their house – and they were in between housing

They came to stay with us –

This is what they were like – five and one half years ago !

Oh – if only I could – I would return to those days !

THIS IS ME

I remember oh so well –

The downstairs bathroom door was shut –

I could hear them –

giggling –

I opened the door –

and there they were –

They had their dolls and doll clothes and were playing house.

They looked up at me and did exactyly what they are doing in this picture

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER

Taylor – Sarah – Cassidy
Note the shoes on Cassidy

And then whenever the others visited –

It was always these three –

Sarah is the older cousin –

and to this day they still have this bond.

Taylor – Sarah – Cassidy

Taylor has always been the bigger of the two –

“I AM SMALLER – BUT ONE DAY I WILL GROW UP “

says Cassidy –

CASSIDY DOES

Today – Taylor rides horses – Cassidy does Gymnastics

Sarah does classical dance –

A few years ago –

All three were MERMAIDS !

“IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER.

Today – they live only a mile away –

Such a short distance –

But time is passing –

Such a fast pace –

Taylor – she just has that all knowing look

Taylor is growing up so fast –

soon to be nine years old

who writes about horses and how to care for them

who – can saddle a horse –

clean the hoof

And ride with no hands

Cassidy – the sweet smile

Cassidy – always practicing her cartwheels –

her round offs and back stand overs

The one who can make anything

as she watches the instructions from you tube

Who always pushes –

everything to the edge.

And now there is Bode

And now in that span – there is Bode –

who looks and acts exactly like Cassidy .

He soon will be five

Trucks – bikes – lego’s

All boy

Bode – Cassidy – Taylor
Taylor – MorMor – Cassidy
Sherry is MorMor to all three

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER .

Time is going on – memories are the past –

But these pictures are my gateway backwards

Bode- Cassidy – Taylor – Sarah – Ella – Maddy
Grandchildren

” IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME ” CHER.

Thank you for reading PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – schools out – little guy comes – takes pictures

Last Friday was his last day of pre – school !

His mother drops him off around 9:30 AM. on her way to work.

WELCOME TO PAPA’S WORLD

The ” Little guy ” is Bode – our grand son – the only boy out of six grand kids.

We sit on the front porch together

” Papa – can I have your phone? ” he will ask.

Social media in today’s World for children can be a problem.

So – we put rules in place – there is a timer – when that goes off –

They must find something to do !

Bode & Papa – playing “FARM”

Usually – he will ask – ” Papa – will you play with me ” ?

And – of course I do – we have this extended FARM SET –

and – most of the grand kids at one time or other – have played with it !

I PAD – TIMER ON

When he does get to have the I PAD – he heads for the couch –

and for the next hour –

the only sound you hear is what comes from the I PAD!

Bode’s view with “MY PHONE “!

There are times –

” PAPA – CAN I HAVE YOUR PHONE ” ?

And – of course – the timer is in effect –

however – I got a surprise –

When I went to look for pictures for this blog –

I discovered – unknown to me –

he was not listening to ” FAMILY FUN PACK”

But was taking pictures !!!

I was watching the ball game

and here he took “HIS VIEW” picture of me !!!!

You can see his little foot !

I saved a few – but I found it quite funny to find these.

Another he took of Cassidy

He had walked around the room and took pictures !

One he took –

was of Cassidy in her ” TENT” with her I Pad !

Now these two Cassidy and Bode –

should of been the twins !

Taylor is so laid back and quiet –

Bode and Cassidy – just the opposite !

Cassidy and Bode
Cassidy and Bode

Cassidy had her I Pad set up to a video on Justin Beiber –

And they both went through the moves

and sang along to it !

When they sing together –

it is hard to tell who is who –

they sound the same

Cassidy is the protector –

she will grab his hand in the waves –

She would be the Elephant in this picture –

she always looks out for him –

always watching over him !

Two peas in a pod I call them – so a like –

and hard to tell which is which when they call from another room.

She is like a second mother to him –

and I noticed –

she has a lot of patience with him –

smiling as he grabs a hold of her and tugging her.

Just enjoying my grand kids –

next week – school will be out –

But for now – I sit on the porch waiting –

the little guy is coming –

” PAPA – CAN I HAVE YOUR PHONE ” ?

In a while – yes you can –

but you can’t take pictures !

Better yet – you can have the I Pad –

At least no pictures can be taken –

at least I think that !

“HE KNOWS MORE ABOUT IT THAN I DO ” !!!!

Hope you enjoyed

Papa’s World – when you have no sense of direction

I know exactly how he feels

When ever we go anyplace – I most likely will be the driver ! And if you know how I feel – I do not like to drive – I like to look – I am a gawker !

I ALSO GET LOST – I THINK I AM GOING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

But – my wife – Sherry – will say – no – you turn left not right !

Always take a picture when you start out
!

Rule number one when you golf with me – always take a picture at the start that way when you know the beginning of the course – after you make a wrong turn – been there – done that !!!!!

When we go on a long or short trip – I always put the address in the GPS or Sherry uses her phone because she says – ” The GPS in the car is weird ” You can’t trust it !!!! Now – I just look and think – “WHY DO WE HAVE IT ” ?

YEP – either made a wrong turn – or a great shot

On the golf course – that is me – I have gotten lost – when you play a new course – you follow the signs – hoping no one has changed them ! But even then – I have done it – wrong turn – in Oahu – from tee to tee – was a journey through the mountains – and jungle – and rain forest – I got lost !

Made wrong turn and had to double back ! The girls didn’t and wondered where we had gotten off to !

Who is teaching who !!!!

The twins – they love my computer and You Tube – now I am not a “TECH” sort of guy – my wife says it is “ME” when things go wrong – she is absolutely right if I am driving – but the computer – that thing has a mind of it’s own !

I swear – I just look at it and something happens – maybe that is why she tells me she doesn’t want me within TEN FEET of HER computer !!

YES – I AM A BELIEVER!

I know – there is no such thing – there is no BIGFOOT – but strange things do happen to me – like the phone rings and when I answer – I had been thinking of them!

Or the time – in the parking lot of work – early morning – stars still out – I looked up and saw a cluster of individual lights moving across the sky in formation – moving back and forth as they passed above me – like 7 or 8 satellite’s flying over head !

YES – I SAW THAT !

I DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE !

When I drive and she is not paying attention – a voice comes from the car – rather annoying –

but it is because I made a wrong turn – I missed the turn – I was too late to turn – and I have NO SENSE OF DIRECTION !

That is me – ” RECALCULATING ”

I know just how MOSES felt while being lost in the desert for forty years – that is WHY I drive and she gives directions –

but I STILL MAINTAIN –

I BELIEVE IN BIGFOOT –

I HAVE SEEN UFO’S AND IT WAS THAT DAMM COMPUTER !!!!
