Antique Archeology

While in Nashville for Katelyn’s graduation we stopped by the new store location for Antique Archeology (American Pickers).

The store is housed in the old Marathon Auto building, which is a pretty amazing old structure.

Tyler's First Force Soccer Games

Tyler had his first games this weekend as a member of the Crystal Lake Force U10 Premier Boys soccer team. The team played well. Very well considering these were the first games this group of kids have played together. They went 1-1-1 and just missed getting into the finals. Tyler is adjusting to competitive travel soccer after being in rec league the past few years. He’s making great progress thanks to Coach Andre who is great with the kids.
