Two things nice about yesterday – the cooler temps (low 80’s) and seeing a bit of green. E’s soccer field has obviously been watered this summer, but the rest of this town – including all the lovely parks – look more like the hill F is standing on. Brown and dead and dusty.
Feeling the need to brush up on my soccer rules now that they are playing the “real” game this year. Big field, less girls, real rules. Super glad to have that zoom lens. The seating is way up the hill from that white line that F’s not allowed to cross – the field sideline is that red one beyond. You better believe she’s got those sandals toeing the line. I need binoculars to see the action – or just watch it through my camera.
E’s almost score below – the goalie slid in under her and grabbed the ball – and E flew over her head.
Eighty+ degrees is still warm in the middle of the afternoon (nap time) on a hill with no shade, but I’ll take it over 100+ any day. Seeing some green was just the icing on the cake.
