Axel and his buddies Miles & Ryland totally enjoyed the Superbowl. It was a typical boys night with plenty of comradery, sports talk, and bad behavior.
watching the game with munchies . . .
discussing the plays at halftime . . . (while Miles hoards the balls in his wagon)
tormenting the poor little lady in the wheel chair . . .
getting in her face like little hoodlums . . .
FYI, she recovered nicely
and finally: taking off shirts, standing two inches from the screen, and riding off on hot wheels.
all in all, a typical evening of male bonding over sports!
A lot of what Axel learns at soccer practice has absolutely nothing to do with soccer.
For example, here is the drill about following directions: at every practice the coach gives out stickers to any kid who can sit still in a close circle for a few seconds in a row (not an easy task for a two-year-old).
TEAMWORK means putting your hands in the middle together for a group cheer
And the biggest reward for 30 minutes of this type of deep concentration and effort: playing on the playground with Arjun - we'll miss you Arjun, good luck in your move to Chicago!
