Thom’s trainings are 5-6.30. This time of year, that’s 90 minutes of complete darkness. The last few weeks, the boys return red-faced and shivering: “Very cold bike ride,” Errol reports. I am so happy to stay at home with the three littles and make supper.
Errol had a trip to Hamburg this week. Sadly, he wasn’t back in time to take Thom to soccer tonight. My parents, all the kids, and I dutifully escorted Thom to training in the cold and dark. Thom and Errol ride bikes, but we rode the tram and walked. While Thom played, we took refuge at a nearby McDonald’s.
Next Tuesday, when it’s time for soccer, I will be even happier to stay at home with the three little and make supper.
