Soccer in the Snow
It's hard to believe that this was yesterday morning. Today it is brilliant sunshine, no wind and the temperature is nearing 50 degrees. I am lighting the fire pit for an outside barbecue. Tomorrow is Zoya's birthday and so we will do a small pre-birthday porch party.
But yesterday Stuey had soccer practice in the snow. Very few people showed up and it ended up a 3 parent and 3 kid scrimmage. We tried to emphasize passing the ball. If the kids scored they got to throw snowballs at Bob the coach. What's ironic is that while you'd expect some snow at the beginning of soccer season this is nearly the end of the season. Maybe they would have been better off playing ice hockey. Patrick
