This is Curtis,

The kids finally got to have a sports day with another team. We walked to the field which was probably only a half an hour away which is much better than what I have heard about some of their walks to other games (5 or so miles). We started the day with the younger boys playing a soccer game (football as it is called here, I don’t know if I can ever get used to saying that). The girls then went ahead and played Net Ball, which is similar to basketball, just different. This is a picture of the girls (blue is Upeme) just about to score.

The last game played was the big boy’s soccer match. This is a picture of Kelvin (7th grade) getting ready to take a free kick.

The day was a lot of fun. I have been excited for the soccer season to start. The team is really strong. I couldn’t tell which was more fun, the games, or the songs and dances from the people on the sideline cheering them on. Here is a video of some of the girls cheering the big boys on during their match.



  1. Looks fun! How does it feel to be on the other side of a soccer game? You played for so many years. The kids are lucky to have a skilled coach.
    Love you

  2. Love the video. They look so happy!!!
    Thanks so much for keeping us updated.
    Bless you Rene'

  3. Fun to be able to watch the children in action, especially when it involves singing and dancing. I can't wait to see the video you are putting together for the 'contest'. I hope your computer will cooperate with all your efforts. Love you both!
