This weekend was HUGE at La Casa de Harris. My son played in his first soccer tournament, and his team made it to the championship. They went into overtime, penalty kicks, and finally sudden death. It was a total rollercoaster, with each team scoring neck and neck throughout the whole thing. And then?
My kid won his first championship.
He played like a champ despite the 90 degree weather and even scored a couple of goals. But the thing I'm most proud of is that everyone was commenting on his sportsmanship, because he's always cheering on his teammates, and he listens so hard when his coach talks that I think he might crawl down Coach's throat. I'm so ridiculously, crazily proud of him.
So today, I'd like to give out some awards on the Batson's behalf. Because there are a lot of awesome things I'd like to celebrate. Without further ado, I give you the Awesome Like the Batson Awards!
First, I'd like to celebrate all of YOU. Because this little blog has just passed the 50,000 visitors mark! Of course, about 10,000 of you are here because you're looking for pictures of Katie Couric, but you still showed. So without further ado, I'd like to give you the Whatever the Reason, I'm Glad You're Here
award.Although if this is the reason you're here, I might judge you a little.
Have you met Lenny
? He may be an almost teen (I've got that right, don't I, dude?), but I'm entirely sure that he's wiser than I am. He's also an aspiring writer, so stop by and give him some encouragement. Lenny loves raccoons, so I'm giving him the Samurai Raccoon Blogger of Awesomeness
award.Even this samurai raccoon isn't as awesome as you, Lenny.
And last but not least, I'd like to give an award to the zombie purse I found the other day. That's right, the Super-Subtle Things to Get Me For My Birthday
award goes to THIS.I can be purchased at Too Fast Online, if anyone wanted to buy me for someone's birthday. Speaking hypothetically, of course.
More awards to come later. Right now, I desperately need to purchase groceries or learn how to summon food with my mind.
