Soccer Injury and Speech Topics
During the Jr. High game today, Winger was kicking away for a goal at close range, when the defender's kick met his at full strength/speed. Ouch! He went down in pain, and I was afraid he might have sprained his ankle (which would have ruined hockey practice at 7:45 tonight). He was pretty sore, but after 5 minutes with ice on the top of his foot he went back in (because LaZers had no other subs). They ended in a 4-4 tie; not bad for playing against an older team. Meanwhile, Meggar was calling to tell me about getting her topic approved for the chance to quiz out of speech: "Why Read-Alouds are Important after Kids Are Old Enough to Read to Themselves." My cell phone allows me to do two things at once so--I was particularly glad to be somewhat involved in her academic progress whilst watching the twins play soccer. Crossing my fingers for her speech on Thursday.
