This is the house that I grew up in, and the soccer field was basically our backyard. I’m glad I got these pictures of the house a few weeks ago, as the two big trees in the yard came down in a storm recently.
One of my favorite memories on the soccer field wouldn’t fit on one of these pictures. One time this guy organized dinner on the soccer field for his girlfriend, which was where they had their first kiss or something like that- it was the cutest thing! My friend and I were about 10 and were having a sleepover, and we played the Sleepless in Seattle soundtrack for them blaring really loud from a boom box on our patio. In retrospect, it might have been annoying, but at the time we thought we were being so helpful!

My kids would be in heaven with a backyard like that! Too bad about the trees & the storm. We had lots of tree debris in the roads and crazy close lightning but were lucky not to get hit as hard as some areas.
