Let's Get Sketchy Team B November Week 4

A New Sketch is up at Let's get sketchy. Bev Code is creator of this awesome sketch.

Here is my page.
These 2 lovely ladies are new members of the NIFA Soccer Team and will be going to play soccer in Brazil next year. World Indigenous Games. So this is very fitting. They have played soccer in Hawaii, and will be adding Brazil as another Soccer Destination.  Serena was also on the Eastern Door Soccer Team that won Gold at the Indigenous Games in Saskatchewan. I think they will always BE BRAVE.

Here is my Creation
I took a recent picture of the My children and my sister's children. We missed our annual stairway picture at the cabin. Serena started at University in August.  This weekend in October all the kids were home. We had a Championship game for Cherish's Soccer and the field they played on was near this wonderful park. The sky was on fire. The leaves were at full foliage and absolutely stunning. Having all the kids together was so amazing. Sometimes its tough having adult "Kids" So getting them all together for a picture is priceless.
