When asked to identify his favorite play of the game he cites this slide tackle where he cleanly strips the ball from his opponent while feeding him a dirt sandwich. What does it say about your child when they like knocking people over?
During the game Kyle made one run which a parent described as the “Manly Run”. He beat a total of 5 defenders and carried the ball 3/4 the length of the field. At one point he lost the ball to a pair of defenders but some how, through sheer determination, managed to steal it back and continue down the field.
Jeanine and I got away during the afternoon on a wonderful hike through the woods. It never ceases to amaze me how many secret places of natural beauty there are in Massachusetts. Nothing is labelled. You just have to know about these places and Jeanine has discovered many of them. This hike took us along the Sudbury River and up to some cliffs which overlooked Fair Haven Bay.
