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? Posted by Picasa

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. Posted by Picasa

Kyle fighting for a header as his team battles to a come from behind 2-2 tie against a very strong opponent. My team was in action as well and we held on to a 2-1 victory against a tough squad from Hopkinton. Posted by Picasa

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. Posted by Picasa

Nicolai played one of his best games ever today. He scored one goal (a nice little short range chip over the goalie and just under the bar) and had two assists to help his team to a 4-1 win. Posted by Picasa

Maya shows me how she can go up and back skipping every other bar. She has unusually good upper body strength for a child her age. Posted by Picasa

Jeanine and Maya are going to a Brownie sleep over this evening. Maya prepares for the long hike (to the car). She has her backpack, sleeping bag, blanket and one stuffed animal. She also took her camera with her so I am hoping she returns with some photos I can post this weekend. Posted by Picasa
