Hello lovelies! Time to reveal a story that reveals my current future! (Does that make sense? eh.) Well, a couple posts ago I told you that the Hubs and I were training for something. The reason why we were doing this involves a really complicated story that contains a lot of family history fun facts and such, BUT I am going to take a little time to try and explain it just because I like you guys that much :)
Ok, first off, my husband's mom's side of the family is from the Bahamas. Remember this, it is important. She grew up there and her whole family still lives there. She met the hub's dad there while he was spending some time teaching in the Bahamas. Later on they got married and moved back to the good ol' Minnesota (where the Hubs' Dad grew up) where they live now! BUT (yet another twist) they decided to have all their children born in the Bahamas so their children could have dual citizenship with the U.S. and the Bahamas. And it is because of this fun fact, that my hubby is eligible to play for the Bahamas's national soccer teams. In the past, he has played for the U20 team, U23 team, and the Men's National Team. They don't have any sort of league there so they just basically play in tournaments and such. Why I am telling you this ridiculously complicated family history is because on Wednesday my hubby is leaving to try out/play for the national team once again, this time in World Cup qualifying rounds. He played for the team in the last World Cup qualifying rounds but got injured after the first round :(. For those of you that don't know how the World Cup works, only 32 teams get to play in the actual tournament but over 200 teams enter into qualification.. SO they play in elimination rounds until it gets down to 32.. There are more complicated parts to it but you get the idea :) Each round consists of one home and one away game against close country. The Bahamas plays Turks & Caicos for the first round. Tough life huh? They HAVE to play in the gorgeous Caribbean. Poor guys.. Ha. Anywho, that is pretty much going to be consuming our lives for the next two months. Like I said the Hubs leaves on Wed. and then he will come back in two weeks for my brothers wedding (WOOOO!!) and then we will both go back down to the Bahamas and stay there with his grandparents through the games on July 2nd and 9th. Whew! What a doozy of a story! If you can follow that, you can get through anything with me :)
The Hubs hates when I brag on him but, 1. He is kind of a big deal (even if it is just in my mind ;) ) 2. Who doesnt love to brag on the love of their life??! So I told him he has to get used to it :) Either way we would love your prayers and support during these times! It is going to be a fun adventure for us but at the same time, weird to be on a semi-vacation for that long! I think I will maybe be able to get used to it... :)
Also no Music Monday today. But I will say that I just got the whole Phil Wickham CD and it is SOOOOOO good. I Love it :) Dana's Nana bought it for me cause she read my blog post about it. She is so stinking cute!!
Have a great start to your week friends!
