After a week of soggy evenings at soccer camp, my three oldest kids, along with the rest of the family, were sun-scorched today as they put their new found "futbol" skills to the test. Three separate games were watched, three sets of pictures and videos were taken, and three personalities were vividly expressed and captured on film.
And then there's little Miss J, five years old, distractable like her mama, and girly as they come. She loved soccer camp. I knew we were in trouble, though, when on the first day I asked her what she learned and she said she learned about the goalie...but she couldn't remember what the goalie was supposed to do. She did know what she had for a snack, though, and this became the theme for the week:
When it was over, she ran to us, smiling ear to ear. We asked her why she liked sitting out better than playing, and she said, "I was ready for the game to be done. I was ready for a snack!"
Gotta go. It's time for a snack.
