Well, there has been much excitement in 'the house' over the past 2 days as our big boy participated in the Brisbane Metropolitan East Soccer Championships. He was selected to play for the school district under 12 soccer team, over a month ago - the only one from his school and his club to be selected - bursting with pride we are. Hubby has been camped out at the championships, in the grandstand, heart in his mouth, for the past 2 days.... sending me text messages every 5 secs..... while I have been at home nursing little one through a fever, which I have now taken off his hands... ache, sniff. For the first time in the history of the championships, my son's district team won. He scored some spectacular goals too! Hubby said he could not fault him. It was like watching the European Soccer League, they were all so good. My boy has so revelled in playing at this level and has been heard saying, "oh it is so good to be playing real soccer". Well done son.
P.S. Little one would like me to bring to your attention that he is now playing piano with 2 hands - due to all the extra piano lessons he's had over the past month or so ... having to take over big brother's piano lessons, in addition to his own, while big brother has been training for the districts. Two champions - it's all too much!
