The nice thing about playing soccer in Topeka is the chance to see Winger's godmother: Mrs. Kim and Captain's sister: Denise, who brought Elijah and watched both matches. Dorito's Varsity team lost 1-5, and the JV team lost 2-5, but were more closely matched. Winger had a shot hit the post! and good passes all game. Polar Bear was frustrated when his two shots were saved by the goalie, who was an excellent player on the Varsity team, too. Mrs. Kim and I caught up on career news since she was laid off in July. Meanwhile, Captain and Denise shared family updates. We had the best of both worlds: good conversations while watching the boys play.
