Take a look at that. It wasn't but a year and a handful of months ago that she was just learning to walk. Now she's learning to play soccer.


Kathi is a very resourceful woman and how she finds some things, like soccer practice for a 2 year old, is beyond me. I'm just happy that she doesn't seem to mind me riding her coattails. We met Kathi + family at a playground in Golden Gate Park on Sunday morning. Sarah had soccer practice at 10:00 so Kathi said, "Why don't you join in? I don't think the teacher will mind."

Seriously, this class was like herding cats but Raul from Barcelona was tremendously good-natured about it, which made me adore him.  I couldn't adore him nearly as much as Ada did. She did everything he said and he treated Ada like she was part of the class from the start.  And he says some cute things like "quigly"instead of "quickly". Oh, and my personal favorite "binocles", which is really supposed to be "binoculars".

It was as if the clouds parted and the hand of Jesus himself came down and pointed to a soccer ball for Ada. We'll be back in February when rainy season is on the way out and class resumes.

Hi! I'm Aitch said...

I need to tell Hubs this. I wanted to sign The Boy up for soccer but Hubs was all, "He doesn't kick things and only runs when he knows he's not supposed to." I'll show him this post to prove otherwise.
