Let the season begin

You cannot make out much in this photo, but that is OK.  What you may not be able to see is that Petr, of the Fireballs U10 team, is walking back to midfield after scoring a hat trick in his preseason game. Last year he was on a great team, in fact they won their region.  This may have contributed to his lack of tenacity, letting the other players do the work.  He was also a year younger. I do not think his team will go as far this year, but that may be a benefit for Petr.  He knows that he has to get things done, and showed he was willing to do it.

I told both the boys, $1 per goal.  I am looking forward to an expensive season.

It gives me a lot of hope as well.  We can all come through.

A visit from a friend

imageMy friend Bob came to visit us with his family this last weekend.  He wanted us to feel at home, so knowing how to visit a home in Kenya he brought some great items, a loaf of bread, 2L of soda (Dr. Pepper to boot), and a yam.

The kids had a great time playing together.  Hopefully we can see them again soon.

Serious Boy

I have been too quiet here.  But we have been busy, with the new guy and me being unable to walk. (I changed my first diaper in 6 weeks the other day because I can now stand.)

We have a bunch of pictures on the camera we need to dump.  I should post about that soon.
