Being the Best

Isaiah came home with the cutest little size 3 soccer ball and shin guards today. That's right we've signed Providence up for a team sport, and not just any team sport- a big time running one, for my happily moseying daughter. Providence immediately wanted to get outside and try them out, and I must admit this may be what was needed to start the fire, she certainly did happily run around till she was quite red in the face. At the end of her little session with Papa she told me that she thinks she'll be "the best soccer player out there." We had talked to her about what the most important thing is? "Loving the Lord" and doing that in soccer is? "Playing your best...but I still think I'll be the best, because I'll be practicing real hard." I'm about to launch into this spiel that even with practice she's not very coordinated and inexperienced, other children have been doing this for years and Isaiah says "I have no problem with that, so long as you're loving the Lord." Simple as that. Hmmm, I thought I was the nice parent.

She's grown! (well, naturally, but still!!) I do hope you'll continue your special friday letters and sunday memories.
