Now We Are Six

October 21, 2012

Phil turned 6 yesterday.

He spent much of the day building new Lego vehicles and structures with his usual focus and purposefulness.

One other highlight of the day came at Phil’s introductory soccer class for 5- and 6-year-olds.

For the first few weeks, the class’s connection to the sport of soccer has been rather tenuous. It might best be described as “activities taking place at a soccer field.” But a portion of yesterday’s class was devoted to bona fide 3-on-3 scrimmages, and in the opening minute, Phil somehow broke free of the ball-chasing pack and scored.

It was a good day for both of us.
