These girls rock! This weekend tested these girls once again and they eagerly stepped up to the challenge. They played in the semi-finals against the 1st place team and kept it tied 1-1, taking it all the way through extra time and into penalty kicks. Despite the pressure put on these girls, especially the goalie, to confront the possibility of knocking the 1st place team out of the finals in penalty kicks, they met the challenge with the same enthusiasm and excitement they bring to each and every game. And even though they came up short by one goal, they managed to fight with a level of sportsmanship and dignity that inspires me beyond words. These girls are special in every way and they give me tremendous hope for the future of this sport. ⚽️ #golightning #indoorsoccer #inspired #proudcoach #soccerlife

Thank you for picking me and for putting up with my goofiness for all these years. I figure if I can still make you laugh, then all is right in the world, because your smile lights my heart on fire! I love you Babycakes, beyond words and I am so blessed that God brought you into my life. Happy Anniversary! #love #fifteenyears #happyanniversary #luckyguy #beautifulwife #soulmate #loveatfirstsight #shehasmyheart #celebrate #blessed #loveforever #bestfriend

Today was a difficult game. But, you learn just as much, if not more, from a loss than you do with a win and today is no different. They worked hard today, but came up short. However, they will continue to grow and meld as a team over the next few months and the kinks will be worked out and the wins will begin to happen. These young ladies are strong, determined, passionate soccer players and they play with such heart and its inspiring to watch! We have a lot to look forward to this season! #thebestisyettocome #lightning #indoorsoccer #golightning #inspired #workhard #playharder #proudcoach

My oldest @collin_j_macleod putting in work on his new sport! Love how he has no fear and will take on something new and as difficult as golf with such a fun and positive outlook. He's a natural athlete, so he should pick up on this pretty quick. I hope he finds as much joy with this sport as I have over the years. #golf #workhard #playhard #puttinginthework #prouddad

It's hard to express how incredibly proud I am of this team. These boys played in the final for the D6 Commissioner's Cup today, played their hearts out, but came up short and took 2nd. However, they are still winners in my eyes! This team has grown so much this season. Each player has continued to improve, both as individuals, but even more importantly as a unified team and the amount of support they selflessly give to each other is inspiring and makes my heart burst. It has been my absolute honor to have had the opportunity to coach these young men this season and I already can't wait for next season!! GO THUNDER!! #proudcoach #lincolnthunderfc #linconfc #soccer #soccerlife #blessed #greatseason ##teamthunder

Proud of these boys for the way they handled themselves on and off the field this weekend at the D6 Commissioners Cup, winning the semi-finals and advancing to the finals next weekend in Elk Grove! They played so well, as a unified team, in selfless support of each other and represented themselves and the Lincoln Comp program with great sportsmanship. Really looking forward to next weekend's Finals against Inter-Youth. On a special note: every single player on our 12 man roster has scored a goal this season! I find this especially unique and worth mentioning because it just goes to show how much they support each other on the field, playing selflessly, allowing each of their teammates to have the opportunity to put one at the back of the net. #lincolnthunderfc #teamthunder #lincolnfc #soccer #teammates #proudcoach

We played the Granite Bay Ghosts & Goals tournament this weekend and fought hard to get the chance to play for 3rd place this afternoon. We came up short, but these boys left it all out on the field and played their hearts out! Extremely proud of what they accomplished this weekend and how they pulled together to play some of their best soccer yet. They've come a long way in the 7 months they have been together and continue to grow as players and wonderful young men on and off the field. I feel blessed and honored to be on this journey with this great team! GO THUNDER!! #lincolnthunderfc #proudcoach #teamthunder #lincolnfc

Happy 13th Birthday to my oldest son, Collin! It's hard to find words to express how much I love you @collin_j_macleod or how incredibly proud I am of you. Our first born, you changed our lives and have brought so much joy and laughter to our world. Your quick wit, brilliant sense of humor, and gigantic loving heart are just some of the attributes that make you the wonderful young man you are turning into. I can't believe you're a teenager already! It feels like just yesterday I was holding you in my arms. How time flies! I'm so incredibly proud of you and I am giddy with anticipation to see what exciting adventures you have waiting for you. One thing I know is certain; you will continue to be a shinning light in our world and I will always be the luckiest Dad on Earth because God blessed us with you. I love you son! #birthdayboy #teenager #birthdaycelebration #growinguptoofast #prouddad #lovemyboy
