Mary's team ended up being 4th out of 12. They played their hearts out. All the games the final day were so close, and the ref gave our team a few really bad calls. I'm so proud of Mary, soccer has been so great for her. One game she tried to get the ball and she plowed into another little girl and they both fell, but they both got back up and were OK, but Mary sure reminded me of a pro-wrestler.
Last night as we were driving home we saw two deer, one we missed, the other saw our car lights and started running in front of the car. Dave tried to avoid it, slammed on the brakes, but the deer hit the corner of the car and bounced off into the air. Dave went back to see but there was no sign of it, no blood or anything. The car got a little dent in the front corner and the blinker is broke, but no real damage. We were all really upset, we went 3 years here without hitting a deer, the odds were not in our favor last night. We are really blessed and lucky there wasn't more damage and the whole thing could have been a lot worse, thankfully we are all OK and no one got hurt.

Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down
Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down
Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down.
Well I know whats right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down
Hey baby there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down
No, I won't back down
Ben turned four the other day. I can't believe sometimes he was a premee. 9 weeks early, 3 lbs, 5 oz, which was big for a premee. He's a chunk now, so tall, he's like 42 lbs. He's been potty trained for a few months now, FINALLY! I made a pinata and he loved breaking that open, had a dinosaur cake, got some 'Ben 10' stuff, and games for the computer. I love that kid!
