Fathers Day - United

Soccer continued this morning in Delaware on this Fathers Day.  Kyle helps his team late in the 2nd half to tie the game.  A tie would bring them forward to the final.  In the last minutes of the game, a botched offsides call, results in a free kick for the opposing team, and United loses 2-1.

A bitter sweet ending to the soccer tournament, and a very stressful weekend.

One of our friends, Kathy Hoffman is driving us home, as we don't have a car.  Sue had to run home Friday nite, and on Saturday morning, her mom passed away.

This day in history "
On this day in 1885, the dismantled State of Liberty, a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of America, arrives in New York Harbor after being shipped across the Atlantic Ocean in 350 individual pieces packed in more than 200 cases. The copper and iron statue, which was reassembled and dedicated the following year in a ceremony presided over by U.S. President Grover Cleveland, became known around the world as an enduring symbol of freedom and democracy."

The drive home from Delaware is brutal.  We stop in Brooklyn for some R&R.

Finally home after a 5 hr drive, we plan some fathers day dinner.  Sushi it is.  Gavin and I order and go pick up dinner.  A nice cool breeze in the backyard is the setting for Sushi dinner.

After dinner we go for a bike ride in Sayville.  Kyle stays back to study for his HS tests....

Back home, it is getting late.  A few calls to my side of the family to pass the "bad news" , and everyone is shocked and offering heartfelt condolences.

Bitter Sweet Fathers Day.  The boys bought me a new running shirt that I will be sporting in tomorrow nites 10K run at Sunken Meadow....Cardiac Hill awaits.  My goal is to finish the race, and of course, not come in last.

United we stand.  We try to stay strong.
