A good game

It was cool, or a little cold, but I thought it was a nice day for playing soccer during last week’s game. Upon leaving, someone greeted us and said Abe was on fire. Abe tried hard in the field and running everywhere no matter it’s offense or defense and he was good at passing to teammates too.

Unfortunately, Abe’s team lost. But a good game nevertheless as claimed by the team coach. Every one tried hard to fight back  but fell one goal short. The game’s close and exciting by watching from the sideline.

Yesterday, Abe played another team under the same nice cool weather. He and his teammates had a much easier time.

Abe and his little brother sometimes play video game of soccer, maybe the video game helped them to be a little better at soccer?

I registered Abe to learn playing tennis from the park district. He opposed to it strongly since he’d never been coached, his play “sucks” and he “will not go” to the session. I told him the session’s for beginners and included only several lessons, “after you try and if you still do not like it. We can forget it and move on.” I prepared that if Abe would ask me why I ask him to learn tennis, I would answer that playing more than one sports make you less likely get injured. Anyway, he did not ask. But he asked if I already paid the fee, of course I did upon registration.

After last week’s first session, he said he actually good at tennis, he did not mention quitting anymore.

By the way, last week, without being asked,  he started playing chess on board with himself again. Something he had not done since he began Junior High last year.

Spring

Spring’s here. It’s the time for the kids to go out to play something. It does not matter it is riding bike or playing soccer, or playing some chess games.

This was the picture I took at the hallway of the first floor of the tournament Abe played one week ago. It brought me a good mood. I went upstairs. Looking through the window, I saw he’s one of last boards playing. “A job well done, Abe”, I told myself — I am always glad if he’s one of last. The earlier he steps out the playing room, the worse he plays, often loses without a fight.

Last weekend, Abe played the Barber Qualifier.  He must did OK, yesterday Mommy asked him “How is the tournament?”

He replied something like “A successful learning process.”

“Successful? No!” I thought, “learning process, I hope Abe’s sincere this time.”
