It was another soccer Saturday. I didn’t get to see Ollie play today because his game was at the same time as Jonah’s, but Ollie reported that he made all four goals in his scrimmage, a ‘hat trick’ to rival Jonah’s from a couple of weeks ago. He was very proud. Jonah and Sam both played tough games today. Neither of their teams won, but they played hard. Sam always plays defense and Jonah switches from goalie to forward to defense. Slowly, I am learning more about the game and I do really enjoy watching them play. Neither of their teams have more than a couple of kids on the bench, which means they have to play the entire game with only a couple of rests. Sam now plays on a much larger field, so lots of running and harder for me to get close-up photos. But today I got one of Sam throwing the ball in and one kicking the ball. Even though Jonah was wearing a head band at this coach’s insistence, he’s is still the wild-haired kid on the field. Such a contrast to his good buddy Luke with his black hair.
Tomorrow I am off to Philadelphia. I lived in Philadelphia for a year when I first got out of college, but I don’t think I ever toured the town. I remember driving by Independence Hall while I lived there, but not touring. A few years later Mark and I visited Philadelphia and went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. So I am looking forward to going there to visit with Kevin and Claire, meet up with Lynne Kirwin, and see the city as a tourist. It should be fun and the weather looks cooperative.
