Day 348, Year 9: Soccer Saturday and Dinner with Friends
Date: Saturday, October 4, 2014
Weather: Warmer, but Still Overcast and Drizzly, High in the 60’s F
Location: Quissett Harbor, Falmouth, Massachusetts

Soccer dominates the Goldstone’s schedule on Saturday as Jonah plays at 9 am and Sam plays at either noon or 1:30 pm depending on the week. So Mark and I started our day on the soccer field at 9am, went to Heather and Jed’s between games to do some laundry and eat lunch, and then it was back to the soccer field to see Sam play. Both boys really enjoy their time on the soccer field and we enjoy watching them. Thankfully we had nothing more than drip drops of rain and we all enjoyed the warmer temperature. After Sam’s soccer it was back to Heather and Jed’s to help out with some projects. Mark sewed the patches on Sam’s new Boy Scout shirt and I helped Heather sort through boxes of clothes. With three growing boys, it seems like she is always putting away clothes they have outgrown and finding things the next size up. She keeps the plastic bins of clothing sorted by size in the basement. Jonah loves to ‘shopping’ down there, but Sam doesn’t have the advantage of having an older brother. He is growing so fast and needs new long pants. In fact, there are a few things each boy needs, so tomorrow we are hoping to go apple picking and then do a little outlet shopping at the nearby mall. Actually Mark and I will go to the apple orchard and then we are heading north to Portsmouth, New Hampshire to visit with family and friends. We’ll leave Heather and Jed to do the shopping. We are still hoping to leave next weekend, so we’re trying to squeeze in a little visiting with friends this week. Thus the trip north. And tonight we had dinner with friends Bruce and Jane Woodin. Jane had a bit of a health scare recently, but just yesterday she found out that everything is fine, so tonight was a dinner celebration.
