The Next Babe Winkelman & Mia Hamm

Okay, so those two people have nothing in common, but I wanted to combine two things that have been going on with Sebastian and Sophia this week.

We went on a quick overnight trip with John, Denise & Nick to Tom & Karen’s cabin on Friday night.  We arrived fairly late, but the boys wanted to try out the fishing anyway.  Before the light rain turned into a downpour, Sebastian pulled in this beautiful 15 1/2 inch, 2+ lb bass.  Thus, the title “The Next Babe Winkelman”.  For those who don’t know who Babe is, just ask Mike (or do a Google search).  He met the master fisherman back in our hotel days.  I believe Mike still has his autographed photo tucked away somewhere special.

The next morning Nick was up at 6am ready to fish.  John and Nick caught seven more fish in the morning and Mike added to the count later on.  We fried up the fresh catch for lunch.  Delicious!

On to the Mia Hamm part of the story…

Sophia had her first soccer practice last night.  We arrived at the field to meet her teammates – six boys.  So much for meeting other Congdon girls before she starts kindergarten.  There is one player that wasn’t able to make it to practice.  Our hope is that the missing teammate is a girl.  Sophia was a bit timid at first, but did all the soccer drills that were requested by her coach.  She looked pretty adorable in her soccer cleats, shin guards and pink shorts.  We are planning to have a family soccer game tonight in the backyard to prepare for her first game tomorrow night.  We’ll see then if she has Mia Hamm potential.

In the next photo Sophia is the one sitting on a pink soccer ball.  She probably didn’t know what to make of all those boys.
