At the soccer field

Last night Jeff & I headed to Spartanburg, to watch Clara and the Clover Elite Girls Soccer Team in action.  It was the first time we’d seen her play this season, since they moved up to a different league that is way more competitive.  We were a little late for the match, because they moved […]
