You might notice a recurring theme in my subject this week. Actually, there are TWO recurring themes this week ... the first (duh) is my soccer star. I love this time of year. The light is great. The heat is not yet oppressive. The colors are bright. And I just can't seem to get enough soccer in my days.
We're also far enough into the season where the team is starting to get comfortable with one another. You can see it in the way they are starting to trust one another. That's something that doesn't come easy to a group of 9 year old boys. So, in the beginning of the season, many of them try to do too much once they get the ball. And you are rarely going to be successful with that kind of play. But now, now they've been playing and practicing with one another for over a month. They believe in one another and this last week it came together to where they finally got their first win of the season.
I'm proud of the whole team - for playing hard and trying their best. And, of course, I'm super proud of my own young man. So ... here's a tribute to week 4 of the PDF season:
The other theme repeated this week is the triptych format. I'm liking the story board concept right now. And I like how it works for one photo divided (like last week) or to bring 3 photos together. Fun to play with, that's for certain.
No soccer this weekend (for us or the boy), so I guess I'm going to have to come up with something novel for next week's post.
