Bless her heart!!!! I had NO idea! Obviously their soccer teams have a ways to go before they'll be playing against the Christian high schools nearby. ; )
They are a sweet bunch of folks though and I think we should stick it out. The "QuirkyLeague" as my hubby has dubbed, could be a blessing in disguise. We'll keep you posted.

We went to a bonfire and the kids gave surfing a try and then
they roasted some starbursts
AKA "shish-ka-bursts" as they called them! We warmed up late that night at our friends house with Mexican hot chocolate and a nice visit with my sister.

We had another fun dinner with my parents and the next day they took us to
It was SOOOOO much fun!
First of all, we ate a lot of:
and played the Wii a lot.
She bought homemade tortillas and heated them on her gas store, how cool and authentic tasting is that?!
Then we did more swimming and Wii bowling that day.
We met up with more wonderful family members and dear friends for a street fair and ate "street tacos" and fudge. Yummy! I think there were about 20 of us all together.
Here are all the cousins -and the friends we love like cousins, on the pier in Oceanside.
A fun game of Apples to Apples with that big crowd followed until us Floridians could hardly keep our eyes open.
In the morning, 16 of us went for more
This time to a place in downtown San Diego that has been serving Mexican food since 1935!
Have a great Labor Day weekend!
