The end of soccer season, the start of barbecue season

The kids aren’t out of school yet, but it feels like summer already. Soccer season is over, and barbecue season is here.

My son’s team was the Bombers. And what a fun bunch of kids and parents they are. Too bad we don’t get to stay in the same team next season… Here’s a couple of sketches from the sidelines. Drawing little figures in action is fun!The end of soccer season and the start of barbecue season

Last game of the season. It’s in the 90s in the sun. We get to sit in the shade and cheer.soccer_bombers_last


You know you’re on a fun team when you end the season with a poolside barbecue. I didn’t sketch much, because I was too busy eating, but here’s a couple of quick captures of a pair of sisters and a baby with a strawberry.
