The girls started indoor soccer this week. It was not what
they we expected. The girls play in an indoor roller-hockey facility and it is cooold.
They eventually warmed up and had a great time playing 30 minutes of fast paced soccer. Sparkles scored the first goal and Sweetie had some nice break-aways.
Papi was a trooper once he got his coffee (hot chocolate).
We are all looking forward to their next game. We’ll be certain to pack on the layers.
"Sport, properly directed, develops character, makes a man courageous, a generous loser, and a gracious victor; it refines the senses, gives intellectual penetration, and steels the will to endurance. It is not merely a physical development then. Sport, rightly understood, is an occupation of the whole man, and while perfecting the body as an instrument of the mind, it also makes the mind itself a more refined instrument for the search and communication of truth and helps man to achieve that end to which all others must be subservient, the service and praise of his Creator."
~ Pope Pius XII, "Sport at the Service of the Spirit," July 29, 1945
