Blue Monday and Soccer

Sally at Smiling Sally is hosting Blue Monday. Please visit her and the others with Blue Monday posts.You will meet so many nice bloggers while you are enjoying the color blue!

Connor spent the night with us on Friday after going to the play I posted about yesterday. We had to get up early and get to the soccer complex for his last game. He didn’t want to get dressed, so I solved the problem by bribing him-I told him I would give him a dollar to get dressed. It did the trick-he was ready in no time! His mama didn’t think it was too funny, but as a grandmother you do what you have to do. We even arrived at the game before his mom and dad!


This was Connor’s last soccer game of the season. Here he is in his blue uniform holding his 2nd soccer trophy.


Now that soccer is over, it is time for T Ball! Connor played for the first time last year, and began to really get into it just as the season ended.

Hope you have a wonderful Monday, and thanks for stopping by!

I recognized Conor's little red mop on my blogroll right away! He has grown so much since he was on your blog header a few months ago. And what a cool uniform.

I KNOW you had a great weekend with your grandkids! And you are such a briber!! ;-)

Happy BM!!!

My son played soccer for years and Conner's picture brought back such good memories. Where did the time go!?! Now he's 23!

Diane, Connor is such a cute little soccer player ... and I bet he's easy to spot on the field with that pretty red hair!

I love the bribe, he obviously knows who will dole out the bribes and how to get them. Life lesson there I think, never do for free what someone will pay you to do? He is so adorable, I hope he has fun with Tball this summer.

Good morning Diane :)

You mean you're not supposed to bribe your kids?? I'm in trouble then ;)

Connor looks so cute! I hope he has a great t-ball season!!

Hi Diane,
Nothing cuter than a little boy in blue. My little grandson plays soccer too and loves it! Happy Blue Monday!


Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Hi Diane

Connor looks liker a star! My son played soccer and baseball all through his life from 5 years old to college. It's a wonderful way to keep boys focused and busy!

I love the grandma tips --I'll remember the dollar bribe when I need Leo to do something quick!

I just want to pinch Cooper's cheeks in your header photo ... he's such a cutie!

Hugs, Pat

CC said...

He is a sweetheart and I hope he loves the T ball season. Happy Blue Monday to you both..

Judi said...

well...I think you did good! Connor made a dollar and you got him there. Sometimes you just have to. Thats a great sport and I'm sure he'll be eager to get dressed as he gets more into the game.
have a lovely Blue MOnday

Darlene said...

I bet Connor was fine once he was up, dressed and going. He looks so cute in his soccor uniform!

RobinfromCA said...

Hee, hee! Grandmother's prerogative! He looks darling in his soccer uniform. Actually, I should say handsome - he's probably getting too old for "darling."

Happy Blue Monday!

Diane, I posted earlier, but I just wanted to say that I will be participating tomorrow. I have to go sit with Trish and her mom tonight, so if I don't get linked, can you link me up to you? I'm going to schedule my post to go on at 9:00 p.m. Don't know what time you'll be up, but I am doing that so that I can coordinate with Tam's event. Thanks so much!
