My daughter had a soccer game first thing this morning. Her maternal grandparents are in town, and I encouraged her to play hard to show them how well she could play. During the game, she was nothing short of awesome! She scored four goals on her own, and passed balls to a teammate who scored goals in two other instances (in soccer they don't have a name for that, but it would be similar to an "assist" in other sports). The other team was pretty much demoralized even before the half time -- we don't keep score at that young age, but the girls all knew that the final score was 9 to 2. She had a wonderful time, and I was quite proud.
I'm a space nerd, a family man, a middle of right-wing conservative, a church-goer, an enthusiastic guy, and a sufferer of occasional lower back pain. I'm fairly young with three wonderful children. Life is great, but far too short for all the things I want to do!
