Beware of Flying Pucks

Beware of Flying Pucks! ...is what it says above several doors in the ice-skating rink. What a cool sign! I want that one for my dining room. I think that sign really applies to life too, don't you?

Soccer rage! (Actually, its pure, unrefined joy!) So here's the story...T.Michael, age 5yrs had never played soccer in his life when we went to Mexico with our church youth group this last spring. How cool is this, his first-ever soccer coach was Roberto (gold shirt in picture) a young man from Mexico who took T.Michael under his wing and taught him the game. The kids from Mexico played their usual intense game, working around my son like they were in some kind of dance. They allowed him into the middle of their game, protecting him as if he were as precious to them (we'd only met that very day) as he is to me...we have so much to learn from the Mexican people.
