Thunder Move to 4-1

As many of you know, I am playing on a women's professional football team, the Iowa Thunder ( This weekend we had our second to last home game and came away with a win 66-0! We have now moved to 4-1 and I'm looking forward to our last bye weekend this Saturday and Sunday.
Doug is the special teams coach for the Thunder and we enjoy being able to share our passion for football together. Even though he gets nervous every time I step on the field. He didn't have too much to worry about this last game so he was finally able to relax a little.
After a busy Saturday we did absolutely nothing on Sunday and I loved every minute of it! We went to the movie Angels & Demons in the afternoon, highly recommend seeing it if you liked the book, and then watched hockey the rest of the night. Now it's back to the daily grind for the rest of the week. Football on Tuesday, volleball Wednesday/Thursday and more football on Friday!
Sophie got to go to the dog park for the first time this weekend. She was a little shy around all the puppies, she acted like the new kid in school. She stuck pretty close to mom and dad but got a few laps around the park in with some friendly dogs. Stuck her face in a few water bowls and sniffed many, many butts. Pretty good weekend to be a puppy and the weather was amazing! I think she had a great time and we'll be making another trip there next weekend. I'll try and remember to take some pictures as we ran into three other Great Danes there!
