Max’s soccer team has done it again–and won this Memorial Day weekend’s Cannon Cup tournament! Congratulations to his team and his coaches for this well-deserved win!
Congrats to PVI Theater
Huge congratulations to Sophia’s high school theater team, whose “Murder on the Orient Express” was nominated for 12 Cappies (for the uninitiated, that’s the Oscars for high-school theater)! Amazing to see what the team has accomplished and enjoyed the great gala event last night at the Hylton Performing Arts Center.
President’s Cup Winners
After coming back in the last two minutes of overtime and winning the penalty shootout in the semi-finals, Max’s soccer team resoundingly won the President’s Cup final to become the 2023 Virginia Youth Soccer Association State Champions in the U12 Boys group! Congrats to the entire team and their coaches for this fantastic tournament weekend! With this win, it’s now off to Philadelphia in June for the 2023 U.S. Youth Soccer’s President’s Cup…

Visit to Munich
After more than two years, we finally made it back to Munich, Germany, and enjoyed family, friends, and German food there as well as soccer camp, (pool) time with the cousins, excursions to a chocolate factory, and climbing high up among the trees in in the Kletterpark Vaterstetten.
Back from a week of R&R in the Outer Banks with Erin’s family, and now off to Germany less than 48 hours later…
